The amazing turnaround is almost complete.

Coming off of a season where they managed just two District 10AA wins, the Marshall County High School Tigerettes won their 10th District contest of 2008 with a nail-biting 2-1 victory over Spring Hill Friday to remain tied for first place with Page.

"It's been great," said MCHS head coach Holly Barnes. "The girls have done everything we have asked of them and more. They have bought into what we are trying to do here and have worked hard at it."

The Tigerettes stand at 10-3 in the district, while Page is 9-3. The Lady Patriots have beaten MCHS twice this season, 5-3 at Page and 7-2 at Maurice Hambrick Field in Lewisburg. Marshall County has one District game remaining at Hickman County on April 29, and Page still has two games left with East Hickman and Giles County this week.

The District 10AA Tournament begins May 1. The higher seed hosts each game until they lose, with Page owning the tiebreaker with their two wins over the Tigerettes.
