Lady Rockets headed to state tournament

Crittenden County High School's fast-pitch softball team is headed to the All A Classic State Tournament for the first time ever.

The Lady Rockets (14-2) beat Caldwell County 3-0 Thursday at Smithland to claim the Second Region championship.

The girls beat University Heights, Livingston Central and then Caldwell in the small-school tournament this week.

The Class A Tournament will open April 29 with pool play in Owensboro.

Crittenden is off to its best softball start in school history. Its only loss to a Kentucky team was 3-2 against then-24th-ranked Union County.
