8-0.

That was the final score of a game between bitter rivals, who split their regular season series.

Creek Wood softball left no doubt on Thursday night at Montgomery Central.

Elizabeth Martin, the regular season district player of the year and all-tournament performer, had nine strikeouts.

She also drew two intentional walks and went one for two at the plate.

As if her performance was not enough, Kendall Bryant, Kenzy Mann, and Raigan Albert all had multiple hits and made the all-district team.

Hannah Albert was named to the all-tournament team.

In case anyone is curious, those five young ladies make up the batting order one through five.

That is unheard of.

This is a team with boundless potential, and they showed it.

Spectacular baserunning, double plays, extra base hits, the only thing missing was a home run.

The Lady Red Hawks sent a message to the rest of class AAA that they are special this season.

Maybe the best part for Creek Wood is that there is a very good probability their region tournament final will be against the Lady Indians.

Creek Wood will take on Hume-Fogg Monday evening, while Montgomery Central will face Murfreesboro Central Magnet.

The Lady Red Hawks should not struggle, if they maintain their current level of play, with Hume-Fogg.

Meanwhile, Magnet could be a challenge for the Lady Indians, but they have responded well to losses.

Montgomery Central lost game one of the district tournament only to turn around and win three straight before losing to Creek Wood.

I would expect the same level of bounce back and intensity from them Monday.

We shall see if Creek Wood can continue their incredible play as of late and possibly meet up with the rival Lady Indians a fourth time this year.
