Dickson, TN – Clarksville High School’s softball team saw last year’s first ever trip to the state tournament end at the hands of then District 10-AAA member Dickson County High School in the tournament’s semi-final contest.
This year Dickson County (41-7) is no longer in District 10-AAA, having moved over into District 11-AAA, but the Lady Cougars still ended the Lady Wildcats season again – this time in the TSSAA Sectional Round on May 16th – with a 5-1 final.
Clarksville High (33-16) was hurt by a slumbering offense, that was shutout for the second straight game after only suffering four shutouts in the regular season, and a couple of miscues in the field that led to three of the five runs being scored by Dickson County being unearned.
Clarksville, TN – Rossview High School’s Kevin Kane pitched and hit his way into the programs baseball lore on May 15th, as he pitched and hit the Hawks past District 10-AAA regular-season and tournament champion Clarksville High School to win the school’s first Region 5-AAA title, 5-1.
With the victory, Rossview (24-12-1) will host Ravenwood High School May 16th in one half of the TSSAA Sectional tournament, while Clarksville High will travel to Brentwood High School in the other Sectional matchup. Both games start at 7:00pm.
Clarksville, TN – I recently realized the primary color in most of my favorite sports teams (Spurs, Ravens, etc..) is black. I wonder if that is a subconscious acknowledgement of the slimming effect of black clothes. Regardless, here are my more relatable sports FourThoughts for this week.
NFL Draft: Must See TV
I have watched the NFL draft for years as a fan and a fantasy football player looking for an edge. I think it is hands down, the best draft of the major pro sports. Apparently, this year I was joined by a record breaking number of NFL draft enthusiasts.
Clarksville, TN – Trailing for the first time this season with its ace Donny Everett on the mound, May 12th in the opening round of the Region 5-AAA tournament, Clarksville High School’s baseball team rallied to defeat the Beech High School Buccaneers 5-3 to reach the regional finals.
The victory also earns the Wildcats (29-5) a berth into the May 16th Sectional Tournament, where a win puts them into the TSSAA State Tournament field.
But it didn’t look early on like it may be the Wildcats night, with the Buccaneers (18-18) putting up single runs in both the first and third innings off Everett (11-0) – both coming off doubles by Isaac Robertson, driving in Jared Knight in the first and Jesse McKay in the third.
The Lady Wildcat’s outstanding starting pitcher, Heather Norris, got a complete game shutout victory with the help of some excellent defense played by her teammates.
“I was proud of the girls. I thought defensively, that was the best defense they played all year,” Lady Wildcat’s head coach Brian Rush said. “There were a lot of bang-bang plays and our girls never flinched.”
Clarksville, TN – For the third time in three days, the Clarksville High Lady Wildcats and the Northeast Lady Eagles faced off. But this time, after the last echo of a softball coming off an aluminum bat faded and the red dust kicked up from slides settled, a District 10-AAA Tournament Champion was crowned.
The Lady Wildcats held off a late rally by the Lady Eagles to win the final District 10-AAA Tournament Championship game, 8-6.
McKenzie Rose hit a three-run homer in her first at bat to give the Lady Wildcats a 4-1 lead at the bottom of the first inning. Going into the sixth, the Lady Wildcats had expanded their lead to 6-2.
Clarksville, TN – What a difference a day makes.
One day ago, the Clarksville Lady Wildcats waged a seven-inning battle against the Northeast Lady Eagles, both teams combining to score three runs and the Lady Wildcats losing 2-1.
A day later, on Wednesday, May 7th, the Lady Wildcats had to defeat the Kenwood Lady Knights to get a rematch against the Lady Eagles and possibly force a third game to determine the 2014 District 10-AAA Tournament Champion.
Clarksville, TN – Behind two first-inning runs and a strong pitching performance from Donny Everett, May 7th, Clarksville High School’s baseball team defeated three-time defending District 10-AAA champion Rossview High School, 2-0.
With the victory, Clarksville High (28-5) will host a first-round Region 5-AAA game at 7:00pm, on May 12th, facing the runner-up of the District 9-AAA tournament between Beech High School and Wilson Central High School, while Rossview (22-12-1) travels to the 9-AAA winner.
Clarksville, TN – Clarksville High School’s baseball team scored seven first-inning runs against Henry County High School, May 6th, and never looked back, as the Wildcats defeated the Patriots 13-1.
With the win, Clarksville High (27-5) will now host Rossview High (22-11-1) at 6:30pm on May 7th for the District 10-AAA championship.
After seeing Henry County (18-12) get a run in the top of the first inning against starting pitcher Nolen Milton, the Wildcats never allowed Patriots starter Jake Croasman to record an out in his half of the inning before being taken out after giving up four runs.
Clarksville, TN – A heads-up play by Rossview High School shortstop Blake Williams, to open the top of the seventh inning on May 6th, may have saved the Hawks from a possible ‘if game’ with Northeast High School and into the championship game of the District 10-AAA baseball tournament, as the Hawks edged the Eagles 5-4.
Rossview (22-11-1) led Northeast 5-3 heading into Northeast’s final at bat, but pinch hitter Axel Rivera ripped a sinking liner into left field in front of a hard-charging Lawson Moquin.
