Political Debates
Do you plan to attend any of the political debates planned throughout the county in the coming weeks?

Lady Wolverine's pitcher Madison Gossett worked hard for Dade in last week's region tournament. Dade earned the second seed state berth and opens play today at home against Lovett at 5 p.m.

The Dade County Lady Wolverine softball team will open State tournament play at home today when they host the Lovett Lady Lions from Region 6-AA.

The Lady Wolverines will play a double header with a third game on Thursday if necessary in the best two out of three format. Game times have been set for 5 and 7 p.m. today and 5 p.m. Thursday if the game is needed.

The Lady Wolverines are the second seed from Region 7-AA after battling their way through a tough region tournament last week in Rome. The Lady Wolverines will be looking to advance to the next round of state with a pair of wins.

Lovett comes into the game with a 10-15 overall record and came out of the four team Region 6-AA as the third seed.

The Lady Wolverines finally got back on the field last Wednesday to complete the region tournament after rain had forced Monday and Tuesday’s games to be postponed.

Dade faced Calhoun Wednesday night in the 7 p.m. winner’s bracket finals and came away with a 6-5 loss after battling the Lady Yellow Jackets for nine innings.

Madison Gossett pitched all nine innings for Dade. She recorded 20 strikeouts, walked three and gave up four hits.

Carly Stephens went 2-3 with one run scored and one RBI; Gossett was 1-4; Summer Stevens, 1-3 with one run scored, Madison Lacy, 1-4 and one run scored; Cari Pierce, 1-4 with one run scored; Sidney Vaughan 1-3 with two RBIs and Ali Birchfield, 1-4 with one RBI.

The loss to Calhoun put Dade in the loser’s bracket on Thursday where they faced Chattooga. Both previous match ups against Chattooga were tight, close games and this one proved no different.

The Lady Wolverines would score two in the first inning and that was all they needed in the 2-1 win over the Lady Indians.

Gossett picked up the win recording 14 strikeouts, allowing two walks and giving up four hits. Stevens was 1-3 for Dade with one double, one run scored and one RBI; Gossett was 1-4 with one run; Vaughan was 1-2; Lacy 1-2; Pierce 1-2; Stephens, 1-3, one RBI; Madi Castleberry, 1-3 and Macayla Ginn went 1-3.

Up next Dade’s ladies faced Calhoun once again. The Yellow Jackets came away with a win over Dade and claimed the region title.

Playing a nine-inning game Wednesday night and having to play a game before they faced the Lady Yellow Jackets certainly put Dade at a disadvantage going into the final game. The pitching arm of Gossett was visibly tired and the Lady Yellow Jackets took advantage in the 9-1 win.

Gossett recorded three strikeouts, gave up 11 hits and walked one batter. Lacy scored Dade’s only run when she hit a homerun in the fourth inning. She went 1-3; Pierce was 2-3; Vaughan was 2-3; Castleberry was 1-2 and Birchfield went 1-2.

Good luck to the Lady Wolverines in the state tournament!
