Tennessee-Georgia All-Star Softball Classic Set For Tuesday

Sunday, June 17, 2018

The Tennessee-Georgia All-Star Softball Classic, the oldest of the Stump on Sports All-Star Series, will see its 21st version take place Tuesday night as the annual doubleheader will begin at 6 p.m. at Chattanooga's Frost Stadium. 

Team Tennessee will be coached by Tim Couch from Silverdale Baptist Academy, who guided the Lady Seahawks to their first ever TSSAA state championship last month. Opposing him will be Gordon Lee head coach Dana Mull, who will guide the Team Georgia. Mull led the Lady Trojans to their third consecutive GHSA state title this past October. It was Mull's eighth state championship at Gordon Lee since taking over the program in 2003.

More than 40 recent graduates (Class of 2018) representing 26 high schools in the southeast Tennessee and northwest Georgia area are scheduled to participate in the event.

The majority of those players will go on to play softball at the college level. Among the colleges and universities that these athletes will play for and attend in the fall include Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi State, Toledo, East Tennessee State, Duke, Tennessee Tech, Kennesaw State, Stetson, Berry, Shorter, Chattanooga, North Georgia, Lee, Lipscomb, Covenant, Chattanooga State, Cleveland State and more.

A total of 13 southeast Tennessee high schools have players scheduled to participate, including some from Silverdale Baptist, Meigs County and Baylor. All three schools won state titles during Spring Fling in Murfreesboro in May.

Also listed on the roster are players from East Ridge, Marion County, East Hamilton, Ooltewah, Lookout Valley, GPS, Soddy-Daisy, Lookout Valley, Whitwell and Red Bank.

Players from Georgia state championship teams Gordon Lee and Calhoun will provide some of the opposition. The northwest Georgia all-stars will be also represented by 13 different prep programs, which will also include Heritage, Ringgold, Northwest Whitfield, Ridgeland, Trion, LFO, Dalton, Armuchee, Sonoraville, Dade County and Pepperell.

Tickets are $8 each for adults and $4 for children ages 6-12.
