Silverdale Baptist Academy now knows its first-round opponent in the Class A state baseball tournament in Murfreesboro.
The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association announced brackets for the Spring Fling tourney as soon as all the sectional results were in, and the Seahawks (26-2-1) drew Rockwood (25-7).
The game is scheduled as Game 1 of the Class A tournament on Tuesday and will start at 5 p.m. Eastern time at Middle Tennessee Christian.
The Silverdale-Rockwood winner advances to face the Decatur County-Summertown winner on Wednesday morning at approximately at 3:15 p.m. also on the MTC campus. The first-round losers will play at MTC at 11 a.m.
Silverdale is ranked No. 1 in the latest coachT.com Class A poll. The Seahawks beat Trousdale County, 6-0, to reach their first state tournament.
In softball, East Hamilton’s Lady Hurricanes are matched up with Chester County and that game will be played on Tuesday at 5 p.m. on Field 2 at the Starplex complex in Murfreesboro. The winner of that game would face the Gibbs-Greenbrier winner on Wednesday afternoon at Starplex #2.
Also, in Division II-AA play, Girls Preparatory School plays Pope John Paul II and Baylor takes on St. Benedict, both those games set for Starplex #3.
In Class AAA softball, the brackets have not been posted because Soddy-Daisy is scheduled to play at Smyrna
Soddy-Daisy still has to play a Class AAA sectional at Smyrna on Monday at 7 p.m. before that bracket will be posted on the TSSAA website.
