Tigerettes, Lady Rockets await Columbia Play Day/Changed to Sunday, same schedule

Saturday, March 3, 2012

After handily winning all of their games at last Saturday's Play Day in Chapel Hill, the Forrest Lady Rockets will travel to the newly opened Ridley Park in Columbia this Saturday where they will join the Marshall County Tigerettes for a full day's action on the softball diamond.

The two intra-county squads will not play each other in their four contests that will last an hour and a half each.

At 9 a.m. the Lady Rockets (22-7-1, 2011 season) will face 3A Dickson County (21-18-1), while MCHS (24-14) takes on Class-A Summertown (28-7-1).

Senior centerfielder Danielle Toseland is poised for a big year this season for the Tigerettes, who are looking to get back to sub-state.

Both county squads will play again at 10:40 with Forrest taking on 3A powerhouse Lawrence County (38-8-1) and Marshall County will grapple with old foe Lincoln County (35-10).

After a couple of hours of break time, the Tigerettes take on one of the Class-A preseason favorites Richland (19-13) at 2 p.m., while Forrest will play at the same time versus host Columbia Central (7-24).

The Tigerettes will play their final game of the Play Day at 3:40 p.m. versus Franklin County and Forrest's last game will also be at 3:40 versus Tullahoma (9-18).
