“This is a great honor for Hannah to be finishing her career as a Kentucky All-Star,” said Corbin coach Chris Hart, who will also coach the Kentucky All-Stars along with Franklin County’s Tracy Spickard, former Heath coach Lyne Dickey and Butler County coach John Embry. “She had a great career at Corbin, and to finish her high school career as a Kentucky All-Star is great honor for her. This shows all of the hard work she has put in and it has really paid off.”

Holy Cross) and Sydney Fourman (Southwestern).
Hart turned in a stellar career for the Corbin Lady Redhounds, capturing 1st Team All-State honors this season in Class 2A while also garnering the Class 2A Player of the Year award twice during her varsity career along with being named Times-Tribune Player of the Year twice.
The senior right-hander, who will be playing for Division I Morehead State University next season, put together a stellar senior campaign, winning 13 games on the mound while striking out 135 batters and compiling a 2.01 ERA
At the plate this season she finished with 48 hits, nine doubles, five home runs, 22 RBI, 35 runs scored and a team-best .457 batting average. Hart also set the Corbin single-season home run record this season while being named an East All-Star as well.
