West Henderson is thankful that Tuesday’s practice accident was not worse.
One of the area’s top hitters, junior catcher Michaela Morris, was hit in the face with an errant softball and suffered a concussion as a result.
Morris has been released from a local hospital and is resting at home, Falcons coach Mike Matthews said Thursday.
Morris was batting .530 with 12 RBIs, four doubles and three home runs prior to the accident. Her average and number of base hits (35) were both team-high totals.
Morrison was held out of Wednesday’s 8-2 loss at Reynolds in the first round of the NCHSAA 3-A playoffs.
