Cooper singled in the first, singled in the second, singled in the fourth, and hit a 3-run dinger in the sixth to help the Lady Raiders get past the Tullahoma Lady Cats, 9-1.
Coffee County grabbed an early advantage when Willow Carden led off the bottom on first and blasted the first pitch she saw for her fourth homer of the season. She also added an RBI double in the sixth. Channah Gannon was also in the home run spirit as she hit her third homer this year, going yard in the third inning. She had 2 RBI in Sunday’s game.
