An undermanned Red Raider baseball team fell in the semifinal round of the 13th annual Crethan Hansert Memorial Baseball Tournament at Powers Field.   Missing several starters, Coffee County was eliminated in the semifinals by Warren County.  Warren County defeated Tullahoma in the finals to earn the tournament title.

Coffee County struggled at the bat and in the field on Sunday as the Raiders were held to 5 hits.  Noah Anderson and Austin Tensfield had a pair of doubles to account for the only extra base hits on the game.  Hayden Skipper had a single and scored Coffee County’s lone run on an RBI fielder’s choice by Colton Kerber.

The Raiders will attempt to gain a measure of revenge on Monday when they travel to McMinnville to take on Warren County in a doubleheader.  The first game is set to begin at 4:30 PM.
