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.
