6-AA Softball Going Three Rounds Tuesday

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - by David Jenkins

For those District 6-AA teams whose weekends meant tournament after tournament, pushing their games to the limit, then Tuesday's tournament is for them.

Circumstances (i.e. three days or rain and a looming tournament completion deadline) have forced the coaches of 6-AA to consolidate and fast-track their bracket beginning Tuesday afternoon at 4:30, with all games now set for Warner Park.

The revised Tuesday schedule begins at 4:30 with Central facing Brainerd and Red Bank butting heads with Hixson.

The final first-round game has a 6 p.m. starting time as Tyner meets East Ridge and the Red Bank-Hixson winner faces top seed East Hamilton.

Two 7:30 games will close out the busy day, as the Brainerd-Central winner meets the Tyner-East Ridge winner at the same time the losers of those first-round match square off.

But 6-AA isn't the only district utilizing Warner Park Tuesday. Arts & Sciences, top seed in 5-A, hosts Silverdale at 5. The other 5-A contest, Boyd-Buchanan at Grace, will also be a 5 p.m. first pitch.

The other districts resuming play Tuesday include 6-A, with Sale Creek hosting Van Buren County at South Pittsburg at 5 and Richard Hardy facing host Sale Creek at 7 in first-round games.

District 5-AA is holding its Tuesday sessions at the higher seed, so Polk County is hosting Sequoyah at 5:30 and Meigs County at 6. District 7-AA will be consolidated at Sequtchie County Tuesday beginning with Signal Mountain meeting Grundy County at 6 p.m. Eastern followed by top seed Bledsoe County taking on the host Lady Indians at 8.

The bigt 5-AAA event is, for now, staying at one location. Rhea County on its school field is hosting Soddy-Daisy at 4, Cleveland facing Bradley Central in a 6 p.m. in an elimination game and Ooltewah banging heads with top seed Walker Valley, which had a bye Saturday.

The top regular season game of the week, Baylor at GPS, has a 5 p.m. first pitch on Thursday.
