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.
