It took nearly 3 weeks, but the CHS Red Raider soccer team FINALLY hosted a game on their home field on Monday night as the JV team played host to Middle Tennessee Christian. The Raiders scored 3 goals in each half to capture a 6 to 1 win over the visiting Cougars. Samuel Brown scored a 1st half hat trick with goals in the 8th, 14th and 35th minutes to give the Raiders a 3 to 0 lead at intermission. Coffee County dominated the time of possession holding MTCS to one realistic goal opportunity which was stopped by keeper Davis Green. In the 2nd half, Ethan Hickman scored goals in the 42nd and 47th minutes before being taken down in the box in 50th minute stopping his hat trick attempt. Miguel Mendoza drove the ensuing penalty kick past the beleaguered Cougar keeper to give Coffee County a 6 to 0 lead. Spectacular play in net by Davis and Mason Boles kept the shutout in tact until the 72nd minute when Middle Tennessee Christian was able to find the back of the net on an odd man rush. The varsity soccer team will be in action on Friday and Saturday in Gulf Shores, Alabama as they travel south for the Spring Break tournament.
The Red Raider baseball team of Coffee County Middle School opened their spring break week with an 8 to 2 win over North Franklin on Monday night in Winchester. Scottie Duke was the star of the game as he pitched a complete game one-hitter for the Raiders to improve their conference record to 2 and 1 on the season. The Raiders plated 8 runs on just 5 hits on the night as Colton Kerber and Harley Hinshaw each had 2 hits. Tyler Serber added the 5th hit for Coffee County.

Grant Sadler came in to finish off the game for the save for Coffee County. Tate and Jacob Langham were both 2 for 2 on the game with 2 RBI.
