She shoots, they score
Congratulations to Courtney Gilliam, who scored the first goal of the season for the Garrard County girls soccer team on Monday in a 5-1 loss to Taylor County, according to The Central Record.
That’s significant because it came in Garrard’s seventh game, following six shutout losses by a combined score of 46-0. The Lady Lions will have a tougher time finding the net in tonight’s game at Danville, but it’s good to see them get off the schneid.
Incidentally, Danville’s girls are ranked 25th and its boys moved up from No. 18 to No. 15 in the latest statewide coaches polls, which followed their losses in last weekend’s All “A” Classic.

Ross Hempel of Danville is ranked 10th among Class A boys, John Anderson of Boyle County is 11th on the Class AA boys list and Jenna Lee of Casey County is 14th among AA girls.
