The Henderson County Senior Softball League had two of its teams earn medals at the North Carolina Senior Games last week in Cary.

Bringing home the gold was the 65-plus team sponsored by Amercian Legion, while the 70-plus team, sponsored by Worsham Athletics, brought home bronze.

The 65-plus team went unbeaten in Pool Play with four straight wins. It defeated Pitt County 15-8, Randleman 21-14, Rowan County 23-0 and the Uwharrie Bobcats 23-7.

In Medal Play, Henderson County defeated Uwharrie Bobcats 25-7 in the opening game and then took down Randleman by a score of 22-5 in the championship.

The 70-plus team went 3-1 in Pool Play, defeating New Bern 15-5, Pitt County 17-13 and Winston-Salem 19-4. Its only loss came to Davie/Forsyth County, which won by a score of 18-3.

Henderson County lost a heartbreaker in the opening game of Medal Play, as it fell 18-17 to New Bern. Winston-Salem then forfeited in the bronze-medal game.
