The Lady Rockets basically steamrolled the competition in the postseason this year and went in to Friday afternoon’s title game versus Lexington riding a 22-game winning streak and a 3-0 unbeaten mark versus the Lady Tigers, including Forrest’s final two wins in the 2019 championship campaign. Forrest Hill played its worst game of the season, looking like the Keystone Cops at times, running in to each other and making mistakes they usually don’t, ones that will cost you a ballgame. more
In Forrest’ first title season in 2008, they came out of the loser’s bracket and beat defending state champion Trinity Christian Academy twice in the championship round. In 2015, they swept away the competition, winning all four games they played for ring number two. In 2017, Forrest was in the driver’s seat, only to lose twice to Meigs County on championship Friday. Two years later, the Lady Rockets pulled off another clean sweep for the school’s third state title and then the Covid-19 pandemic erased the 2020 campaign, denying that senior class a chance of winning consecutive titles. more
The only two unbeaten teams remaining in the Class 2A Spring Fling softball bracket squared off in an all-out war on the diamond in Thursday night’s winner’s bracket final with the Forrest Lady Rockets (30-3-1) scratching across two runs while holding the Lexington Lady Tigers scoreless. The defending and three-time state champions have won 22 games in a row and will play for their fourth state title at 2:30 p.m. today versus the winner of this morning’s loser bracket final between Lexington (36-10-1) and Gibbs (31-12). more
The Gibbs Lady Eagles gave the Forrest Lady Rockets a good battle before the Class 2A defending state champions from Chapel Hill pulled away for a 10-2 win in a Spring Fling winner’s bracket final Wednesday night in Murfreesboro. “We felt pretty confident coming in to this game, but you can always drop the ball,” Forrest coach Shelby Lightfoot said. “I like the way we got on it early and I told them one or two more runs were on me, I got a little too aggressive in that spot, but that is just kind of the nature of it and I will learn from it and not do it again.” “I liked the intensity from the start, sometimes we may be cold for an inning or two, but we always come back hot.” more
Forrest senior Ashley Milligan has had several near misses at no-hitters this season in the circle, but on the big stage on Tuesday, Milligan blanked Covington and the Lady Rockets cruised to a 13-0 five-inning, run-rule win in the first round of the TSSAA Spring Fling XXVIII in Murfreesboro. “Ashley was dominate on the mound again,” Forrest coach Shelby Lightfoot said. “That gives you time for your offense to get going and it gives the team a lot of confidence.” “When you have to ride one pitcher the whole week it gets a little bit tough, so anytime we can get our offense going and she can throw minimal pitches and barely get through their lineup twice is big, it’s going to help her long term.” The only two baserunners in the game for the Lady Chargers came via a first inning error and a second inning hit by pitch. more
Coming in to Friday night’s Class 2A state sectional game versus White House Heritage at the Field of Dreams in Chapel Hill, the defending and three-time state champion Forrest Lady Rockets had won 12 straight pressure packed sub-state contests.

It was a windy, sunny Wednesday afternoon on the campus of Nolensville High School as the Marshall County Tigerettes travelled for a do or die showdown with the Lady Knights in the District 12-AA Tournament loser’s bracket final. Both teams knew the season was on the line as a win earned a spot versus Forrest in the district title game and a berth in the Region 6-AA Tournament or a loss and the season was over. It was the third meeting this season between the two squads with Nolensville ace Rylan Smith dominating in each contest. more
After capturing the District 12-AA Tournament title last week, the Forrest Lady Rockets hosted District 11-AA Tournament runner-up Camden Central Monday night in the Region 6-AA Tournament opener at the Field of Dreams in Chapel Hill. The three-time state champions took care of business in quick fashion, run-ruling the Lady Lions 10-0 in five innings to move on to the region title game Wednesday night versus the Nolensville Lady Knights. “Coming in to this game we didn’t know what they had so you have to treat each game as they can beat you,” Forrest coach Shelby Lightfoot said. “Coach Ricky (Stinnett) gave his pregame speech and he said hey, there are a lot of memorable moments in your life and you don’t want this to be one of them if you lose here, so the pressure is there and if you go in prepared you feel okay about it.” more
The defending state champion Forrest Lady Rockets (24-3-1) meant business Thursday night at the Field of Dreams in Chapel Hill, jumping on Nolensville early and coasting to a 9-2 win in the District 12-AA championship game to claim their 21st consecutive district title and 32nd since 1986. “Coming in to this game, we felt pretty confident that we were ready to go,” Forrest coach Shelby Lightfoot said. The Lady Rockets have won 18 region titles and will try for number 19 when they host the loser of tonight’s District 11-AA Tournament championship game between Waverly (25-5) and Camden (9-6) in the Region 6-AA Tournament opener on Monday with Nolensville (18-10) travelling to the winner’s home field. more
