Pictured above are Rhea County school board members, Rhea County Executive and RCHS Principal cutting the ribbon during a dedication ceremony for the official opening of the new RCHS Lady Eaglesâ€™ softball field.

Unlike the Rhea County High School [RCHS] track team who had a 10-year wait for a home meet, the Lady Eagles’ softball team only had to wait a year for its own facility.
The Lady Eagles may have lost a 3-2 heartbreaker, but they celebrated their home opener on the new digs against Walker Valley on Tuesday with a ribbon cutting ceremony led by RCHS Principal Jesse Messimer. Holding the ribbon while Rhea County Executive George Thacker cut it were Rhea County school board members Bill Davault, “Bimbo” McCawley, Carroll Henderson, Perry Massengill, Paul Hill and Chip Pendergrass.
