Raiders secure finals berth in 10-A tourney, opposite Santa Fe

By Maurice Patton

LYNNVILLE – By the end of Monday night’s play in the District 10-A baseball tournament at Richland, all three coaches were pleased with their respective teams.

Only one, however, moved into Tuesday’s championship game opposite Santa Fe.

The host Raiders dealt Mt. Pleasant a 10-0, five-inning season-ending defeat, after the Tigers sent Culleoka home with a 3-2 decision.

“Whether we win one or two games (Tuesday), I think we came out with a little more urgency, a little more concentration to make sure we did the little things right,” Richland coach Troy Hughes said after his team successfully rebounded from a 9-8, 12-inning loss Saturday to third-seeded Santa Fe by scoring in four of five at-bats against No. 2 seed Mt. Pleasant.

“We knew Santa Fe was capable of beating us. But I think it was a wakeup call for us. We didn’t do what we should have done Saturday. How are we going to respond? Are we going to hang our heads, or are we going to respond like I know we’re capable?”

Richland (19-12) scored on a bases-loaded wild pitch from Mt. Pleasant starter Hayden Holt in its half of the first inning, then capitalized on an Austin Schrengost two-run double and three Tiger errors in a three-run second inning.

Colton Trimble’s two-run base hit sparked a four-run rally in the fourth, and Jace Derryberry doubled home the decisive runs in the fifth.

“I feel like we ran out of gas a little bit – mentally, physically, both,” first-year Mt. Pleasant coach Kennedy Mathis said after his team finished 11-17. “They’re a really good ballclub. They did what they had to do to win the game. They earned it.

“Coming into the year, I don’t think anybody outside of our group believed in us. I think we proved a lot of people wrong, but this was just one step in the process. We’ve got to keep building. It took 11 guys, but we made each and every team earn it.”

Mt. Pleasant played error-free ball for six innings against Culleoka (6-16), working out of a jam that led to a 1-0 first-inning Warrior lead and scoring three runs in the third as Brady Clark’s double drove in a pair of runs before he scored on Ryan Clark’s RBI groundout.

Leading 3-1 into the seventh, the Tigers had to weather some suspense as back-to-back Codell Gilliam throwing errors helped Culleoka cut the deficit in half and put the tying run at second base before reliever Ben Newland stranded the tying and winning runs by striking out Landon Spencer to end the game.

“These guys played hard. They hit the ball,” Warriors coach Vince Springer said. “I’m as proud as I can be of these guys. At times this season, they’ve gotten down on themselves when things didn’t go their way. This time, they stayed in the game and did what they needed to do. We didn’t lose; we just ran out of innings.”

Santa Fe can clinch the tournament title and the No. 1 seed in next week’s Region 5-A tourney with a win Tuesday. If Richland wins the 5 p.m. championship game, the two would play a second contest.

SM-Tn Sports

Local high school football teams continue to work toward the 2021 season, with most wrapping up spring drills over the next couple of weeks – if not already.

Southern Middle Tennessee Sports reached out to coaches with each of the 11 programs in our coverage area to check on their progress as classes wind down and summer workouts approach, as well as update their new regions for the upcoming campaign, last year’s record and this year’s schedule.

COLUMBIA ACAD. (2-6 in 2020), Division II-A Middle

Coach: Charlie Lansdell (9th season)

● What is your biggest comfort as you consider your 2021 team?
“Knowing we have the spring and summer to prepare for the upcoming season. We’ve had some great leadership in the offseason.”

● What is your biggest concern as you consider your 2021 team?
“Being able to bounce back from a tough season; working on our mental toughness; getting back to where CA football has been and should be.”

● What is your primary objective for spring practice?
“Work on fundamentals, see who is ready to compete, look for our quarterback.”

● “All eyes on … “ what player or position during spring practice?
“The quarterback (candidates) — Nick Brown, Connor Rosson and Reid McGrath.”

● When does spring practice wrap up for your program? Do you have a spring game planned, and if so, when?

COLUMBIA CENTRAL (6-6 in 2020), Region 6-5A

Coach: Jason Hoath (6th season)

● What is your biggest comfort as you consider your 2021 team?
“I like our overall team speed on defense. We will be undersized up front, but we will be quick off the ball. We are also returning four starters on the offensive line, our tight end and running backs.”

● What is your biggest concern as you consider your 2021 team?
“The biggest concern we have right now is who will be taking on the quarterback responsibilities. We will have three players competing for that spot and they have little to no varsity experience.”

● What is your primary objective for spring practice?
“We’re excited to see which players will step up to the challenge and compete for spots. We will have a chance to evaluate some new faces this spring and see what our potential will look like.”

● “All eyes on … “ what player or position during spring practice?
“Antwan Moore is a returning starter as a defensive end/linebacker. He was named to the (Tennessee Football Coaches Association) all-state team as a junior and (Region 5-5A defensive lineman of the year) in 2020. However, he has been sidelined this spring as a precaution from a previous injury. He will be ready to go this summer.”

LORETTO (5-6 in 2020), Region 5-2A

Coach: Barry Daniel (2nd season)

● What is your biggest comfort as you consider your 2021 team?
“The simple fact that I have established a relationship with all of the players. I know them so much better than I did at this point last season. They know me, they know my expectations and they are doing their best to meet them.”

● What is your biggest concern as you consider your 2021 team?
“We are going to have several guys back with playing experience, but we are going to have to find some depth. Some of our guys have had an awesome offseason and could fill a starting role but who is the “next man up”? Some players will have to learn more than one spot on both sides of the ball to provide depth.

● What is your primary objective for spring practice?
“To teach the basics of our systems on offense and defense. If our guys can know our base formations and plays, we can gain reps over the summer.”

● “All eyes on … “ what player or position during spring practice?
“Offensive line: This group has had a great off season of weight training. Can they transfer it to the field? Secondary: Must replace two starters from this unit. Two great players return, but who will complete the unit?”

● When does spring practice wrap up for your program? Do you have a spring game planned, and if so, when?
“Late in May. We are going to be short and sweet as many of our guys are still in baseball. No spring game.”

● “All eyes on … “ what player or position during spring practice?

Richland regroups, run-rules Santa Fe to win 10-A crown

By Maurice Patton

LYNNVILLE — Timely hits. Richland didn’t get them in a road loss Monday against Santa Fe.

Playing at home Tuesday, though, the Raiders did come through when it counted offensively – and kept the Wildcats from doing so – in a 10-0, five-inning victory that secured the District 10-A regular-season championship.

“We did a little better job of being selective, and we got some big hits when we needed them,” veteran Richland coach Troy Hughes said after his team shook off a 5-3 loss a day prior that set up the winner-take-all-clash.

“We’ve talked all year (about) we’ve played a tough schedule. I did that on purpose. We lost some games this year. We’ve failed, but we’ve gotten better. (Monday) we didn’t lose the game; we got beat. We’ve got baseball guys that are smart enough to know, we didn’t beat ourselves. So it was pretty easy for them to say ‘next game’.”

Santa Fe wasn’t able to carry over its offensive momentum from the first game. Colton Steward and Logan Wilkins led off the first and second innings with doubles, but their teammates were unable to get either of them across the plate.

“That was huge,” Wildcats coach Rip Baxter said “You can’t win if you’re not scoring runs. We had a hit-and-run on one time, had a bunt on one time. We missed signals – inexperienced, not paying attention.

“When you’ve got runs to drive in, you’ve got to drive them in.”

Richland (14-8, 7-1) did. After stranding seven in Monday’s loss, the Raiders batted around in a five-run second and added a run in the third on three more singles before ending the contest with four runs in the fifth to invoke the mercy rule.

After banging out nine hits – all singles – though, Hughes was effusive in his praise of starting pitcher Sam Edwards and reliever Landon Griggs.

“With us, it starts on the mound,” he said. “Sam came out and threw strikes. When he throws strikes, when any of our guys throws strikes, we’ve got as good a defense as anybody in the state, from Class A to Class AAA.

“All we need is a pitcher to throw strikes. We’re going to field it and throw them out. Sam did an excellent job of doing that.”

Indeed, the Raiders played error-free ball Tuesday along with getting two hits each from Jase Derryberry and Rob Turner. Derryberry and Austin Schrengost each drove in a pair of runs.

After the second inning, meanwhile, Santa Fe (13-7-1, 5-3) only created one other scoring opportunity. Edwards walked two of the three batters he faced in the fifth, before Griggs relieved and issued a walk to Steward. The Raiders squelched the threat by turning a double play on Josh Martin’s grounder, before finishing the game in their following at-bat.

“Troy does a good job,” Baxter said. “They did what they had to do. They did what we didn’t do.”

With Richland nailing down the top seed for the upcoming district tournament, Santa Fe drops to third after being swept by Mt. Pleasant last week. The Tigers will be the No. 2 seed, with Culleoka and Hampshire rounding out the field.

“From top to bottom, this is as competitive as this district has been in several years,” Hughes said. “Going into the tournament, I’m not going to say Richland is the favorite. Culleoka is capable of beating you, Mt. Pleasant is very capable of beating you.

“It’s going to be a very exciting tournament.”

Roundup: Baseball, softball, soccer, tennis recaps

BASEBALL

Columbia Acad. 24, Zion Chr. 0: Bryant Beranek was perfect on Monday night, going five innings and not allowing a single baserunner to Zion Christian. The Eagles committed six errors to aid the 15 hits from the Dawgs, and CA never looked back from an 11-0 lead after two. For the Bulldogs, Kavares Tears was 3-for-3, including his ninth homer of year year, and Beranek added three hits in four trips with five RBIs in the game.

Spring Hill 13, Franklin 3: Spring Hill used a couple of big innings to pull away early from Franklin in 11-AAA play. The Raiders plated four in the first and seven in the third before adding another pair in the seventh. The top part of the batting lineup, which has struggled for much of the year, put together a big night collecting nine hits among the first six hitters of the lineup. Brantly Whitwell, Dawson Hargrove, Quent Mizer and Chance Bland each tallied a pair of hits. Mizer and Bland drove in three runs each as well. Hargrove pitched a gem, going the distance and striking out 15 to get the win.

Summit 6, Lawrence County 2: Summit plated three runs in the second inning, two of which came on an Sam North double, and another pair in the third to pull away from Lawrence County. The Wildcats cut the lead to a run in the top of the third with a couple of bases loaded walks, but couldn’t get a timely hit. Summit pitcher Parker Dean was able to get out of a bases loaded jam in the second inning without a run scoring. Tre Hunter added a pair of RBIs for the Spartans in the win.

Summertown 12, Mt. Pleasant 1: Drake Blackwood, have yourself a night. The senior catcher for Jason Burleson’s bunch had a homer and a double in a three-hit night that saw him drive in seven of the Eagles’ runs. Skylar Trousdale was awarded the win on the hill, going four innings and striking out six. Junior Ben Newland was 2-for-3 for the Tigers, and Codell Gilliam had the lone RBI on a single in the fourth.

SOFTBALL

Spring Hill 7, Ravenwood 0: Kat Carter struck out 21 in a two-hit shutout of Ravenwood, while walking only two hitters. Spring Hill jumped out to an early lead, scoring in each of the first four innings. The Lady Raiders took full advantage of their seven hit and two Ravenwood errors. Jeyce Brashears went 2-for-4 with a double and RBI in the game.

Cornersville 9, Culleoka 1: Culleoka scored seven runs in the fifth to put the game away for the Lady Bulldogs. Alex Skinner had a home run in the fourth to lead Culleoka at the dish, and also pitched three innings of relief, giving up two runs on four hits. Kylie Thomas took the loss in the circle for the Lady Warriors.

Columbia Acad. 2, Ardmore (Ala.) 0: The Lady Dawgs have a new home run queen after Myleah Hardy hit a solo shot in the fourth inning to surpass the previous season record of 16. Journey Mitchell struck out six and allowed just four hits in the complete game shut out.

SOCCER

Columbia Central 7, Lincoln Co. 2: The visiting Lions allowed their first goals in District 8-AAA competition, but were in control of the contest throughout. Gabino Sarabia led the offensive onslaught with a pair of goals, with Benton Wall, Brewer Wall, Victor Ramirez and Mason Hollandsworth each adding a scoring kick. Central improved to 12-1 (7-0) and wrapped up the league title with the win.

TENNIS

Columbia Acad. boys 4, Goodpasture 0: The Bulldogs opened Division II-A Middle Region tourney play with singles wins by Miles Nixon, Aaron Sullivan and Hayes Lewis along with a Nixon/Sullivan doubles victory.
