After capturing the District 12-AA Tournament title last week, the Forrest Lady Rockets hosted District 11-AA Tournament runner-up Camden Central Monday night in the Region 6-AA Tournament opener at the Field of Dreams in Chapel Hill. The three-time state champions took care of business in quick fashion, run-ruling the Lady Lions 10-0 in five innings to move on to the region title game Wednesday night versus the Nolensville Lady Knights. “Coming in to this game we didn’t know what they had so you have to treat each game as they can beat you,” Forrest coach Shelby Lightfoot said. “Coach Ricky (Stinnett) gave his pregame speech and he said hey, there are a lot of memorable moments in your life and you don’t want this to be one of them if you lose here, so the pressure is there and if you go in prepared you feel okay about it.” more

The three-time state champions Forrest Lady Rockets know pressure and they know by instinct what to do in clutch situations as witnessed last night in a winner’s bracket game versus Nolensville at the Field of Dreams in Chapel Hill. Forrest (23-3-1) led for most of the game, only to see the Lady Knights come back to take a 3-2 lead in the seventh inning, but in typical Team 34 fashion, the Lady Rockets prevailed when Laura Mealer creamed a monster two-run walk off home run in the bottom of the seventh inning for a 5-3 win in the rubber match game between the top two seeds in the tournament. more

For the second time in three seasons, intra-county rivals Forrest and Marshall County squared off in a District 12-AA Tournament elimination game. In 2018, a 2-1 win over the Tigers in the district tournament loser’s bracket propelled Forrest to the state tournament semifinals where they lost 7-5 to eventual state champion Greenville.

Ashley Milligan was a jack of all trades as picked up a three-hit shutout win in the circle, laid down a perfect sacrifice bunt in a five-run fourth inning, and belted a walk off solo home run to end the game. “I was just hoping I would get one through the infield, but in the back of my mind I was thinking a walk off would be pretty cool,” Milligan said. “It feels good to beat Giles County, they are a scrappy team.” more
The Forrest Rockets wasted their home field advantage in the first round of the District 12-AA Tournament Thursday night at Chapel Hill, losing a rain shortened game 4-2 to the Community Vikings. “All teams that were playing yesterday were trying to get their games in as early as possible to miss the potential downpour that was expected at 6 p.m.,” Forrest coach Andy Burkett said. “I thought we did everything we could to get the game in, and it’s unfortunate what happened, but we have to control what we can control from here on out and will look to rebound from it. The Rockets fell behind 3-0 after two innings and tried to claw their way back, but as they came up to bat in the bottom of the sixth inning, the skies opened up and a gulley washer sealed their fate. more
