4-1 in the Queen City Classic.

You cannot ask for much more out of the Lady Red Hawks in their final regular-season tournament.

This late in the year you play the tournaments to simulate possible post-season scenarios, Creek Wood passed the test.

They handled lesser teams like Kenwood and Northeast by a combined 53-0 score.

They also took down a decent Sycamore team 7-0.

The Lady Red Hawks even split with a talented Stewart County that beat them near the beginning of the year.

A 6-4 loss and an 8-4 win.

Everyone go in on the action and showed what this team can be at their best.

The question now becomes can they put it together in district play.

With three district games left, Creek Wood could pick up two critical sweeps.

They have a makeup game with Greenbrier, whom they beat a month ago 5-2.

They also have two games left with Portland.

At 3-2 on the year in the district, the Lady Red Hawks sit middle of the pack with everyone else.

They split with both White House and Montgomery Central, meaning sweeps in the next three are crucial to secure the one or two seeds.

Creek Wood, as well as the rest of the district, also wants to make the Lady Indians’ path as tough as possible.

Why? Because it has already been determined that Montgomery Central will host the district tournament.

The Lady Red Hawks have shown the ability to be a dark horse contender beyond regionals, but it is all about what team shows up.

If Elizabeth Martin and Raigan Albert are dealing in the circle, and a lineup that one through nine does not bolster a weak hitter is swinging smart and making contact, this team can go places.
