Coffee County Central High School’s baseball and softball teams will get their respective postseasons underway later this week.
The Red Raider baseball team finished the regular season 7-5 in District 8-AAA play, which was good enough for fourth place. The Raiders will host Columbia at 5:30 p.m. Thursday – a team the Raiders swept in a two-game series back on March 15 and 16 to open the season. This game will be broadcast live on Thunder Radio.
The no. 1 seed Lady Raider softball team finished 12-0 in regular season district play and will have a first round district tournament BYE. The Lady Raiders await the winner of Columbia and Shelbyville and will play that team at 6:30 p.m. Friday night at Coffee County High School. That game will be broadcast live on Thunder Radio. With a win, the Lady Raiders will play again on May 11 and that game will be at Lincoln County High School. The district tournament is double-elimination.
Both the baseball and softball teams will need to at least reach the championship game of the tournament to guarantee a trip to the Region 4-AAA tournament. Anything less would end the season.
For the Thursday and Friday home games – tickets are available at the gate and there are no capacity limitations.
