Coffee County’s Lady Raiders pushed across at least one run in every inning as CHS dominated Tullahoma 11-0 in a run-rule shortened District 8-AAA contest Wednesday night in Manchester.

The issue was never really at doubt. Coffee County took a 4-0 lead in the first and never looked back.

Kiya Ferrell dropped down a bunt single to leadoff the bottom of the first and motored around to score on a hard-hit triple to right field by Chesnie Cox. Kaitlyn Davis singled to center to score Cox and then came around to score on a line-drive single by Justus Turner, who later scored on an error.

Coffee County finished with 10 hits and got help on 5 Tullahoma errors.
