Soddy-Daisy Vs. Cookeville Region 3-AAA Baseball Final Postponed

Hixson Baseball Moved Up To 5 P.M.; Soddy-Daisy Softball Set For 6

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 - by Larry Fleming

Wednesday's Region 3-AAA championship baseball game pitting Soddy-Daisy and Cookeville has been postponed until Thursday.


The Trojans (21-16) and Cavaliers (28-9) were slated to play Wednesday night at 7 Eastern time, but the threat of inclement weather forced the postponement.

Soddy-Daisy was runner-up to Bradley Central in the District 5-AAA tournament while Cookeville also finished second to Warren County in District 6-AAA.

The Trojans beat Warren County to advance and Cookeville knocked off Bradley -- both teams won on the road -- to set up the title game matchup.

The Region 3-AAA championship softball game is still on for 6 p.m., according to a text from Lady Trojans coach Wes Skiles.

In Region 3-AA, the Sequoyah at Hixson game has been moved up to 5 p.m. from 7 p.m. in an attempt to beat the weather in the Chattanooga area.

We stood on the ground where Sherman had his headquarters (near the Ice Cream Show) and the corner where Bessie Smith sang as a young girl. And we also stood beneath the ... (click for more)
