Lady Raiders to Play for Region Basketball Championship

Jules Ferrell sets up the offense for Coffee County on Monday night.

For the first time since 1993, the Coffee County Lady Raiders will play for the Region 5 Class 4-A Championship. The Lady Raiders also have a guaranteed berth into the sectional round of the TSSAA state playoffs. They defeated Shelbyville for the fourth time this season, 40-24, on Monday night at Centennial High School in Franklin.

The game was tied at 9 after the first quarter, but then the Coffee County defense shut out the Eaglettes in the second quarter to lead 23-9 at halftime.

In the second half, the Lady Raiders only outscored Shelbyville by 2 points (17-15), but with a big lead at the half, it was enough for the win.

Channah Gannon led all scorers with 12, followed by Natalie Barnes with 10. Audri Patton and Olivia Vinson added 7 points each. Patton was named the Dr Jay Trussler/Rooster 101.5 Player of the Game for her offensive and defensive play. Jules Ferrell contributed 4 points.

Coffee County will play Lincoln County on Wednesday night at 7 at Centennial for the region championship. This will be the fourth meeting between the two teams this season, with the Lady Raiders winning the first three. The Lady Falcons hit a game-ending buzzer-beater 3-pointer to knock off Nolensville 47-44 on Monday.

Rooster 101.5 will be on hand for Wednesday’s game. Don’t miss it.
