Lady Tigers Start Softball Fall Season

Fall Ball is here.  The Lady Tigers started their fall softball campaign on September 19th against Dunamis 18U. The teams played a two game series of five innings each at the Chattanooga State campus.  The first game was a shut out for Chattanooga State winning 6-0. The highlight of the first game for the Lady Tigers was the pitching game.  The first inning of the game was a three up  three down strikeout inning. The rest of the game pretty much followed that trend.  Dunamis U18 didn’t get their first hit of the game until the fourth inning and the Tiger’s pitchers didn’t give up a walk until the fifth. On the other side of the ball, the Lady Tigers didn’t have much trouble either. They put up three quick points in the first three innings and displayed some impressive base running including a couple of stolen bases. The second game of the night went the opposite way with Dunamis U18 winning 7-5. Some great defensive plays by Dunamis U18 kept them in the game early. Some fireworks were displayed in the second game with some powerful hitting by both sides, ultimately with Dunamis U18 finding their way to victory.

The Lady Tigers have some more games coming up for them to show off their talent and help establish expectations for the up coming regular season. The team will be involved in four major tournaments this fall season across Tennessee. At the end of the fall season, we will have a pretty good idea how this team is going to stack up against other teams in the TCCAA. If the team finds a way to come away with some wins at these tournaments against major programs in the state, then we can predict the regular season is going to be a season to remember for Coach Blythe and her girls.
