Mother Nature’s fury postpones District 6AAA baseball action

CROSSVILLE — The first games of the home-and-home, District 6AAA series involving CCHS and SMHS Monday were postponed due to Mother Nature's fury, which hit the Plateau earlier that afternoon.

The CCHS at White County and SMHS at Cookeville games were postponed, with Tuesday's White County at CCHS and Cookeville at SMHS games still on the schedule as of presstime Tuesday afternoon. Rhea County was scheduled to play a double-header at Warren County Tuesday.

Should the games be postponed Tuesday, double-headers will have to be played Wednesday or Thursday, weather permitting, as the district tournament is scheduled to begin Friday or Saturday with the two play-in games — No. 5 at No. 4 and No. 6 at No. 3. The best two out of three series begins next week.

Coookeville (10-3) had the top seed locked up, followed by CCHS (8-5), Warren County (6-7), White County (6-7), SMHS (5-8) and Rhea County (4-9).

In head-to-head competition, CCHS is 2-1 over Warren County; Warren County is 2-1 over White County; Rhea County is 2-1 over White County; CCHS is 2-1 over SMHS; White County is 2-1 over SMHS; SMHS is 2-1 over Rhea County; and Warren County is 2-1 over SMHS. Cookeville has lost once to Rhea County, White County and CCHS.

Those head-to-head match-ups could come into play at the coaches' meeting today, if the regular season should end without making up this week's games.

The District 5AAA Tournament begins Thursday with Ooltewah vs. Cleveland, Soddy-Daisy vs. Walker Valley and Bradley Central vs. East  Hamilton. McMinn County gets a bye, as this district is involved in the Region 3AAA Tournament with District 6AAA.

The winner and runner-up from District 6AAA plays the winner and runner-up from District 5AAA in the regional May 12 and 14.

Also, both CCHS and SMHS have make-up softball games before the district tournament begins next week at CCHS.

The district soccer team begins this weekend, as No. 4 hosts No. 5 and No. 3 hosts No. 6.

  • The truth about driver distance

    Most golfers would like to hit the ball further off the tee with the driver.  Distance may not be as important as accuracy off the tee, but it is very valuable. Longer, straighter drives make the game easier.
