MADISONVILLE, Ky. (WEHT) The Madisonville North Hopkins softball team will head to Lexington this weekend to play in the KHSAA Elite 8.

The Lady Maroons will play Clay Co. on Friday, with a spot in the Final 4 on the line.

Madisonville won the Kentucky state championship in 2017. They are now 3 wins away from another state championship.

Head coach Whitney Barber says, “This is postseason, this is what you dream about. To be able to be a coach, going back to the state tournament is pretty awesome and to play there is really spectacular. Not only for the older ones, but the younger as well. Because now they will get to experience, and hopefully have that fight in them to get back there.”
