Lightning struck twice this past weekend, as the Lady Eagles softball team of East Jackson won their second region 8-AA championship in only their second year of existence. The Eagles rolled undefeated through region tournament play last week, defeating the Jefferson Lady Dragons for the title.
Now the number one seed Lady Eagles move on to sectional tournament play in Dalton later this week, as they’ll first face number four seed Coosa at 4:00 Friday afternoon.
Coosa enters Friday’s game following a 3-1 loss to Adairsville, finishing fourth in region 7-AA. During the season, they went 10-4 in region play, and 13-5 overall.
