Lincoln County High School’s Lady Falcons had a busy week in district tournament action. After being sent to the losers’ bracket the previous week, the ladies put together a string of three wins before going down to Coffee County in the District 8-AAA Championship.

In their first action last week, the ladies won over Tullahoma, 6-4, followed up with a 10-6 win over Shelbyville.

The Lady Falcons advanced to the championship game with a big 6-3 win over Lawrence County. It was knotted at 3-3 at the end of regulation. In the bottom half of the eighth, Anna Marie Thornton ripped a walk off homerun, scoring 3 runs for the win.

The runner-up spot sends the ladies on the road in Region 4-AAA action, traveling to Siegel on Monday. First pitch is at 7 p.m.
