Waverly Central won the North Division of the District 11-AA Baseball Tournament by thrashing Hickman County 12-0; the Creek Wood Red Hawks squeaked out a 6-5 win in 8 innings over Lewis County to win the South Division. Momentum would stay on the Tigers’ side on Thursday night, as Waverly hosted Creek Wood in the title game before rudely turning the Red Hawks away 10-0 in a 5-inning run-ruled game.
All-District selection Dalton Mirabella had 3 RBI, while District Player of the Year Jacob Foster and teammate Carson Hollifield each had 2 hits and 2 RBI. Foster also pitched, throwing a 5-inning complete game gem; he allowed 2 hits and 2 walks in the shutout, fanning 4.
All District selections Connor Pate, Chase Haley, and Zeke Lecomte lead the Red Hawks on the road again on Monday to open Region play. Somehow, the Tigers may have done Creek Wood a favor, however, as the loss sends CWHS to CPA with the season on the line, while Waverly hosts a Spring Hill team that’s apparently nationally ranked and stinging from an upset.
Elsewhere, Brentwood softball brought the thunder on Thursday, thrashing Ravenwood 14-2 in 5 innings to get another shot at Dickson County. The Lady Bruins topped DCHS 6-3 in the nightcap to force a winner-take-all game Friday for the 11-AAA District Title.
Camden softball beat Montgomery Central 11-7, but the Lady Lions were blanked 5-0 by Waverly. The Tigerettes will battle Creek Wood on Friday night in Charlotte for the 11-AA crown.
