  • Titans go 1-2 at Frankfort

    The Titans softball team ended the Capital City Showcase tournament 1-2, picking up a win over George Rogers Clark before falling to Pulaski County and Mercer County to close out the weekend.

    “We’re still not hitting the ball as consistently as we’d like,” Titans coach Charlie LeCompte said. “And we need to clean up our mistakes defensively if we want to put ourselves in a spot to win games.”
