Tigerette head coach Holly Barnes has the girls from Lewisburg positioned just where they want to be, in the thick of the District 10AA race and playing solid ball in the waning days of the regular season.

The Tigerettes (13-7-1, 9-3) are coming off an impressive showing at the Border Battle last weekend in Lincoln County, where they went 3-1, losing to a tough AAA Blackman team, 2-1, deep into the tournament brackets.

After losing to District rival Page Monday night, the Tigerettes came out re-charged and swept out the visiting Lady Panthers from Lewis County, 2-1 and 3-1, in two five-inning contests.

MCHS senior first-sacker Lauren Anderson, the heroine of game one with a base-knocking game-winning hit in the bottom of the fifth inning, said after the game, "We just want to take it one game at a time and we will be fine. We are just trying to get to first place in the District to get the home field advantage in the tournament."
