-Lawrence County baseball continued to show the Bulldogs aren’t bluffing while in Bluffton, S.C. The undefeated Dawgs (11-0) keep on rolling with close, hard-fought wins.
-East Carter’s softball team is already in midseason form. Amazingly, the Lady Raiders have 16 games in to this point! They are 14-2 with some challenging tests coming up.
-When you take a peek at this week’s 16th Region rankings, you’ll notice that Morgan County baseball is still on the outside looking in. Yes, the Cougars have shot out to an impressive 9-1 start, but the schedule has been much tougher for the Super Seven so far. Their performance in the All “A” Classic could help their case.
-Several top-notch games are on the docket this week, so hopefully everyone returning from those long bus trips are fully-rested and recovered!
-The 16th Region All “A” Classic semifinal and final rounds will be held at Bath County (baseball) and West Carter (softball) this week. Opening-round games are scheduled for various sites. The girls’ semifinals are set for Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., while the championship game will be on Friday at 6 p.m. The boys’ semifinals are slated for Tuesday and Thursday at Bath County at approximately the same times.
