Dickson was pushed to the brink on Saturday night but survived Rossview to advance to their second straight AAA Blue Cross State Championship. Unlike the first matchup between the teams, when Dickson shot 58 percent from the floor, defense was the highlight of the sectional game. Early on the teams proved evenly matched, playing to a 12 point tie after one quarter. Dickson jumped out to a 9-4 lead behond six points by Lea Lea Carter and a three from Cierra Smith. Rossview responded with a layup by Haylee Croom and back to back threes by Hadley Brown and Holley Spears. The Lady Cougars gotRead More →

The Creek Wood Lady Red Hawks thrilled their fans with an improbable win over Giles County, guaranteeing two more games for the young Lady Red Hawks. CPA handled Creek Wood in the Region Championship Game, sending CWHS to East Nashville Magnet High School for a TSSAA Class AA Sectional contest for a spot in the State Tournament. The Lady Eagles had only lost two games all season–a one point home loss to Lipscomb Academy, and a loss in the first game of the season to a Riverdale team that’s in the Class AAA State Tournament. East Nashville got off to a hot start, and turnedRead More →

With a second straight region title and home sectional game on the line Wednesday night, Dickson County took care of business against a depleted Ravenwood squad. The Lady Raptors lost their leading scorer, Kierra Downey, to a season ending knee injury Monday night against Cane Ridge. Downey’s 17 points per game were also good for a selection to the All-District and All-District tournament teams. Without her shot creating ability Ravenwood was in for a struggle against a Dickson defense that had held its region opponent to 28 point per game coming into the championship game. That struggle became all too real in the second halfRead More →

Creek Wood started strong against the CPA Lady Lions in Wednesday night’s Region 6-AA Basketball Tournament Finals, taking a 2-0 lead on the champions of District 12-AA to open the game. Christ Presbyterian quickly tied the game at 2-2, then a stop, a three, a turnover, and a basket-and-one made it 8-2 Lady Lions before the Lady Red Hawk fans could even react. It was that kind of night for the Navy and Red, as CPA built a double-digit lead in the first half and would never relinquish it, beating the Lady Red Hawks 57-39. Despite the 8-2 start for the Purple and Gold, Creek WoodRead More →

Monday night was a big night for the Lady Cougars as they secured their second straight Region 6AAA Championship game appearance with a 59-32 win over Summit and ensured a second consecutive Sectional matchup Saturday night. Coming off their 87 point explosion on Friday, the Lady Cougars’ defense led them on Monday night. Facing the Lady Spartans for the third time this season, Dickson seemed tight early on. Only Lea Lea Carter had offensive success in the first quarter. She accounted for nine of Dickson’s 14 points in the opening frame and was the reason they held a 14-9 advantage at the end of theRead More →

It was the perfect storm. A tough, physical, quick Giles County opponent. A neutral site game far from home, at Spring Hill High School, with the early 6pm start time. And a new Interim Head Coach in Charlotte Middle’s Russell Wilson, who only got one practice to coach the Lady Red Hawks up. As it turns out, the perfect storm was all Creek Wood needed, as the adversity galvanized the resolve of the team, the coaches, and the entire community, and the Lady Red Hawks led for most of the game, outlasting the Lady Bobcats 53-46 on Monday night. Creek Wood opened the game with aRead More →

The Lady Cougars continued their warpath through the postseason in the opening round of the Region 6AAA tournament Friday night against Glencliff. The Lady Colts provided little resistance as Dickson ran away in route to an 87-24 thrashing. Dickson exploited Glencliff’s soft zone to perfection in the first quarter. When the Lady Cougars realized the defense would not come out to contest three pointers, their shooters took aim. Of the seven field goals made by Dickson in the first quarter five of them were three pointers. The hot shooting propelled Dickson to a 22-10 first quarter lead but the fireworks were far from over. InRead More →

Very little went according to plan on Friday night in Charlotte, as the Creek Wood Red Hawks and Lady Red Hawks hosted Cascade for a pair of Region 6-AA Quarterfinal contests. The Creek Wood girls drew a 6-win Lady Champions team that on paper should have been a cakewalk. However, Cascade had clearly won the games that mattered to be in that situation, and proved its mettle in a defensive, gritty battle on the road. As for the boys, they hosted a Champions team that tied for third in its district, finished fourth in the tournament, and traveled to a very full Creek Wood gymRead More →

Going into the season, the Creek Wood Lady Red Hawks would not be a lock to win a district championship. In fact, the Navy and Red might not have even been a favorite, having to replace four starters and just two years removed from a State Tournament run with current Vanderbilt Lady Commodore Rachel Bell. In spite of all the nay-sayers, the Lady Red Hawks nearly ran the table, riding a 15-1 regular season district record to a number-one seed in the District 11-AA Tournament, and Creek Wood put a lid on the district slate with a 62-46 pasting of Lewis County to take homeRead More →
