For high school sports, May means the postseason.
Tullahoma’s boys soccer team wrapped up its regular season Tuesday night against Lighthouse Christian. At the same time, the THS baseball team was putting the finishing touches on another solid regular season over in Manchester as the Wildcats faced rival Coffee County Central.
Meanwhile Tullahoma’s softball team closed out District 8-AAA play, as well as regular season play on Monday night in Lawrenceburg.
Tullahoma’s track & field teams will compete at home Saturday in the Rudy Hensel Midstate Rotary Invitational and then turn their focus to the girls state subsectional and the boys state subsectional, scheduled for May 8 and May 10, respectively.
The THS tennis team finished up the district tournament last week and three players — seniors Taylor Myers and Patsy Terry and sophomore Laura Burke will move on to the TSSAA region tennis tournament in Murfreesboro this month.
Each of these teams are trying to reach the TSSAA Spring Fling, the state championships held in Murfreesboro.
But the baseball, softball and soccer teams have to make it through their district and region tournaments first. That begins Thursday, as the Lady Wildcats softball team will host Franklin County in the opening round of the District 8-AAA tournament at 7 p.m.
Tullahoma’s baseball team opens tournament play on Friday night at Grider Stadium against the Lincoln County/Franklin County winner. The Wildcats went 10-0 in district play to earn the No. 1 seed in the tournament.
The boys soccer team didn’t lose a district game this season, but a pair of ties allowed Columbia to snag the top seed. The Wildcats are seeded second and will host the Lawrence County/Franklin County winner at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Top-seeded Columbia will get the Shelbyville/Franklin County winner.
While the district baseball and softball tournaments are double elimination, the soccer tournament is single elimination.
