    Oldham County hosted its “Take a Bat to Cancer” game May 15 against Henry County.

    The game, which the Lady Colonels won 6-0, served as a fundraiser for the National Foundation for Cancer Research.

    The teams raised about $800 for the organization through admission receipts, t-shirt and wristband sales, baked goods and concessions.

    Both teams wore pink t-shirts. A list of cancer survivors and those that have fallen to the disease was read after the third inning.

    GOSHEN – Last month Drew Lively teamed with fellow senior pitcher Eddie Mathis to throw a perfect game against Trimble County.

    Monday Lively nearly repeated that feat on his own.

    The win clinched No. 1 seed South a spot in Wednesday’s district title game, which was played after The Era’s press deadline. The Dragons also punched a ticket to the Region 8 tournament, which begins Monday at Henry County.
