Two games separate the region champion Madison County Red Raider softball team from a trip to Columbus and a shot at the state finals.
UPDATE: Madison County defeated Southwest Paulding on Wednesday 15-0; 11-2. Northwest Whitfield also won 5-0;8-4 and will face the Red Raiders' softball team on Oct. 20 at Raider field.
Madison County faces Southwest DeKalb in the first round and the first obstacle on the road to Columbus. The doubleheader was set for Wednesday and if needed a rain date was arranged for today (Thursday) at 4:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., with the if-needed third game on Friday. The games are at Raider Field.
“We are excited to be in the state tournament,” Red Raider head coach Doug Kesler said, “I don’t know a whole lot about Southwest DeKalb, but I expect them to play hard. It is going to be interesting to see.”
