It was a successful Senior Night for Shelbyville Central as the Golden Eagles rolled past Marshall County 8-1 on Monday evening. Seniors Dalton Puckett, Cole McKamey, Caleb Green and Austin Johnson were honored before the game, but had a special moment of throwing with their fathers before the first pitch.

Puckett got the call on the mound for the Eagles, pitching a complete game while allowing only one run off seven hits with six strikeouts and a pair of walks.

Johnson ripped a double and single, Mason Wright and Hunter Wilhelm each doubled while Slayde Simmons and Mason Landers added a pair of single apiece for the winners.

Shelbyville Central (14-12) closes out the regular season this evening at Spring Hill.

The Eagles open District 8-AAA Tournament action on Friday night at 6 against Thursday night’s Lawrence County/Lincoln County winner.
