Final softball tryout set

The final date to try out for the 2020 Henry County High School girls’ softball team will be from 9-10:30 a.m. Thursday at the school’s softball field.

Lady Patriots’ head coach Renae Lassiter said there had been scheduling conflicts with the previous announced date of July 22, so the tryouts were moved to Thursday.

Titus Winders came in first in the Murray Main Street Mile with a time of 4 minutes, 14 seconds. His brother, Javan, was second at 4:16 and another brother, Silas, was third at 4:21.
