Coffee County’s Brianna Jones did something Tuesday that very few players around the country have done. She struck out her 1,000th opposing batter in her career. The Lady Raider senior pitcher holds almost all pitching records at Coffee County. Her career strikeout total now stands at 1,002 with 217 coming so far this season. Jones and Kaylee Skipper combined for a one-hitter.
The Lady Raiders were on the road at Lawrence County and picked up the win, 3-0 to the secure the regular season District 8-AAA championship. Coffee County is now 19-3-1 overall and 11-0 in district play.
Rhianna Roberson had a hit and an RBI for the Lady Raiders.
Coffee County will finish up regular season district play Wednesday night as they travel to take on Tullahoma at 7pm. You can hear the game live on our sister station WHMT Sports Radio the Ticket at 105.1 FM, AM 740 or the ticketradio.com
