We didn’t get much softball video in the last few days, so this report will strictly be in article format.
It’s been a hot start in District 10-AAA for several teams. This is what the standings look like as of this morning:
1 Clarksville 4-0
2 Henry Co 4-0
3 Springfield 3-0
4 Rossview 3-1
5 Mont Central 2-1
6 Northwest 0-3
7 Northeast 0-3
8 Kenwood 0-4
9 West Creek 0-4
I have not seen Henry County or Springfield play, but I can tell you no one is as hot as Clarksville High to start the season.
As of today, the Lady Cats are 11-0 overall to start the year, and have outscored their opponents 135-10 in getting there. Granted, the first few district games have been against some of the weaker teams in 10-AAA. A better barometer of where the Lady Cats stand right now can be measured by their performance in the Commando Classic, the annual “early season” tournament in Henderson which took place this past weekend. Clarksville won the tournament, going 7-0 in the three days of play against some of the better teams in middle Tennessee if not the state.
In the Championship Game against Dickson County, Clarksville won 12-0, and sophomore pitcher Sydney Weatherford threw a two-hitter. She bested that on Tuesday, throwing a no-hitter against Northwest in their 14-1 win.
Henry County and Springfield are putting up big scoring numbers themselves, so look for those games to be real showdowns with the Lady Cats. The double-digit wins are all coming against Northeast, West Creek, Northeast and Kenwood who unfortunately are having trouble scoring runs themselves.
Rossview and Montgomery Central both have one loss. The Lady Hawks started their season with a 4-0 loss to Springfield, while Montgomery Central suffered their first loss on Tuesday 9-5 versus Henry County.
In District 9-AA, our three Cheatham County teams are off to slow starts, while it appears Greenbrier may be the team to beat again this year.
1 Greenbrier 2-0
2 WH Heritage 2-1
3 White House 2-1
4 Westmoreland 2-2
5 Cheatham County Central 1-1
6 Sycamore 1-2
7 Harpeth 0-3
In Division II-Class A, Clarksville Academy is struggling early, now at 1-3 after beating Racine (WI) Lutheran in a non-league game on Tuesday.
