    Shelby County and Henry County turned in a classic 8th Region pitchers dual Monday in the opening round of the region tournament, but it was a wild play and a Henry County error that led to a Rockets 1-0 win.

    For the second straight game in this postseason, senior pitcher Paige Oldham was ready to answer the call on the mound when the Collins softball team needed her.

    “I knew this was the third time [Shelby] had seen me [on the mound], so I was working on my spin. And I knew [Shelby] liked balls outside, so I kept it inside when I usually don’t,” Oldham said after the game. “I was trying to keep them off balance a little bit.”

    Putting a cap on a high school career as effective as Faith Wiley’s could be a tough one, but being named one of the top athletes in the region is a start.

    “It’s an honor to be named district athlete of the year,” Wiley said. “It feels like all my hard work I have put in on and off the course has actually been recognized by many people in the whole district.

    On the mound, the pitcher tossed a gem of a game and never let the Bears get comfortable, allowing just one hit and no earned runs while striking out four in a winning effort.
