    The induction of Mary Custard-Austin into the KHSAA Hall of Fame and the announcement of the 2019 Kentucky All Stars is coincidentally happening in the same week. More about the all-stars later.
    As I remember Mary Custard, her great speed comes to mind first. Seeing Mary glide around the track when the competition was huffing and puffing to keep up, sticks in my mind all of these years later.  
    Her tremendous speed with what seemed like little effort was a sight to behold. I know there was a lot of effort but she was so smooth when she ran.

    After the Thursday debacle at Pendleton County, the Fillies needed a strong performance to get them back on track.  Senior hurler Jima Hill and eighth grade shortstop Julie Coleman provided those performances Monday at Paris.  
    Hill hurled a five-inning no-hitter and Coleman was on base four times with three hits, a stolen base, three runs scored and five RBIs.  The Fillies scored one run in the first and five in the second on the way to the 14-0 rout of the Lady Hounds.
