    For Lady Hawk fans and former players, the memories of former All-State catcher Nicky Miller performance in the 2005 semi-finals of the 5th Region tournament at Lady Hawk field will live on. As the underdog home team was playing perennial state powerhouse and region favorite Meade County, it was Nicky Miller’s three home run performance that left an unforgettable mark on everyone in attendance. It was simply just another day for Miller, but one more addition to the Lady Hawks’ record book that has her name in the top three of many categories.
