    Midway senior pitcher Hannah Colyer fired a four-hitter with one walk Tuesday night in the Lady Waves TSSAA Class A State Tournament opening game against Forrest, but it wasn't enough for the Lady Waves to defeat the defending state champion Lady Rockets as Forrest took advantage of six Midway errors in picking up a 4-0 victory.

    Half of Midway's errors came in the bottom of the second inning and it proved costly as Forrest scored three of their four runs.

    Somebody had to pay and that somebody was Unaka.

    That was pretty much the message delivered Friday evening as the Midway Lady Green Waves bounced back from a frustrating loss in Wednesday’s Region 2-A Championship game against Coalfield by pounding the Lady Rangers in the TSSAA Class A Sectional, 10-3.

    Wednesday’s loss was a 1-0 heartbreaker against the Lady Jackets, but Midway co-head coaches Robbie Viar and Craig Hutchinson knew at the time that their team would come back with a vengeance.

    For the past three years, the Midway Lady Green Waves have won the Region 2-A championship and used the home field advantage that came with that victory as a springboard to making the TSSAA Class A State Tournament in Murfreesboro.

    However, if the Lady Waves are going to make the trip to Murfreesboro this year, they will have to do it without the comforts of home during Friday's TSSAA Class A Sectional as Coalfield knocked off the Lady Waves Wednesday evening in a classic Region 2-A championship game, 1-0.

    Rockwood's Tyler Skidmore set the tone Monday afternoon as the Tiger lead off hitter hit the first pitch of Monday's District 3-A Tournament against Midway out of the park and the result was an 8-0 Rockwood victory over the Green Wave in an elimination game for both teams.

    For Rockwood, the Tigers dream of a 13th straight region tournament appearance are still alive as they entered Tuesday's game with No. 1 seed Grace Christian Academy.

    The Midway Lady Green Waves wrapped up the No. 1 seed for the upcoming District 3-A Tournament Thursday evening with a 10-0 victory over visiting Harriman.

    Midway will now look to capture the regular season title outright as the Lady Waves play Harriman again Monday and then they visit Greenback Wednesday to conclude the regular season portion of their district schedule. A win in either of those games would leave Midway alone atop the District 3-A standings.
