Tigerettes to Battle Upperman for District Tournament Championship

The DeKalb County Tigerettes will have a re-match with the Upperman Lady Bees for the championship of the district tournament Thursday at 5:00 p.m. at Baxter.

The Tigerettes lost to Upperman 11 to 4 Wednesday afternoon, sending them to the loser's bracket where they met Livingston Academy, who had earlier eliminated Smith County from the tournament. DeKalb County defeated the Lady Wildcats 6 to 2.

DC trailed LA 2 to nothing after the second inning but tied the game with two runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. The Tigerettes scored three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to take a 5 to 2 lead and they added an insurance run in the sixth to seal the victory.

Lauren Colwell, the winning pitcher, gave up two runs on seven hits through seven innings. She struck out two and walked four.

Alex Meadows, two singles
Loren Cripps, a single
Tiffini Hendrixson, double
Brooke Hutchings, double
Lauren Colwell, single

If the Tigerettes should win over Upperman Thursday, a second and deciding game would follow the first game. WJLE plans LIVE coverage.
