  • Diamond Cats capture softball...

    Erin Boley, daughter of Scott and Mary Beth Boley of Hodgenville, knows what it feels like to be a national champion.

    Last Friday, the Kentucky Diamond Cats, a fast-pitch softball travel team on which pitcher/first baseman Boley plays and her father is assistant coach, zapped Maryland’s Lakeshore Lightning 9-2 to capture the National Softball Association’s Class A World Series title.

    “This is the only Kentucky team of any age group to have ever claimed an NSA Class A World Series title,” said Boley, a local dentist.
