It is going to be a long drive for Madison County’s next softball game, but one the Red Raiders gladly take as the team heads to Columbus and the first game of the state finals.
Earning a spot in the Elite Eight for the right to play in Columbus has been the team goal all year and the players and coaches are now going to make the most of it as Madison County faces Union Grove today (Thursday) at 3:30 p.m. on field number six.
Madison County improved to 32-3 as the Red Raiders defeated Northwest Whitefield 8-3, 3-1 last Wednesday.
“They were a good team that was well coached,” said coach Doug Kesler. “They were on a roll coming into our place and had a lot of well earned confidence.”
