Whitewater starts play in state softball tournament tomorrow
Whitewater’s varsity softball team (20-10-1) placed fourth in the region tournament last week. That being said, it is a very tough region.
All four playoff teams are ranked in Class AAAAA’s top 10. The Lady Wildcats open the Class AAAAA state playoffs on the road tomorrow at Thomas County Central (19-10-1).
The Lady Yellow Jackets ended the season on a strong note, winning seven of their final eight games en route to capturing the 1-AAAAA region title. In four of those final seven wins, Thomas County Central held their opponents to no runs.
Whitewater went 2-5 in their final seven games, losing three straight at one point to Lassiter and Collins Hill in the Broowood tournament and then to Ola. In the region tournament, Whitewater beat McIntosh twice but lost to Union Grove, the eventual region champions, 8-2 and Northgate, the region runners-up, 12-6.
The Lady Wildcats have posted 11 shutouts this season. They have proven they can be dominant, they’ll just need to be good right out of the gate to advance in the tournament.
