AHSAA All-Star Sports Week Continues
July 11, 2012By Redd Rider of Good Hope High School
It's no surprise to those of us close to the Lady Raiders Softball Team that Cara Goodwin wooed the crowd in yesterday's AHSAA All-Star Softball Game in Montgomery.
Cara is no stranger to Lagoon Park as she just pitched there a few weeks ago in the AHSAA State Softball Championship Tournament.
This time it would be for the North team in the first game that ended in a 0-0 tie.
Goodwin allowed just 1 hit and struck out 5 enroute to three shut-out innings! A truly stellar performance against the South All-Stars.
The following is a press release from the AHSAA about other All-Star games yesterday.
