During the regular season, the Coffee County Red Raiders and Columbia Lions split their regular season games, winning at home. The Raiders would go on to win the regular season District 9 Class 4-A championship, with the Lions finishing runner-up.

On Tuesday night at ‘The Patch’ in Manchester, the tournament championship was on the line. Coffee County was able to grab the early advantage, leading 14-11 after the first quarter. Columbia’s defense played really well the second, holding the Raiders to three points, and they took a 28-17 lead into the dressing room at the half.

The game progressed to the final quarter, but Coffee County was beginning to fight back despite some difficulties with turnovers and an off night at the free-throw line. The Raiders only managed to go 7 of 20 at the charity stripe. In the end, the Lions didn’t have a great night shooting either but pulled out the 43-40 win and the district tournament championship.
