Softball: Troup Thunder still alive in 8U state tourney

TROUP THUNDER - Girls 8U Coach Pitch

RUSK — The Troup Thunder continued its march Wednesday night through the loser's bracket of the Texas Teenage Baseball-Softball Association Girls 8U Coach Pitch State Tournament, which is playing out in Rusk this week.

The Thunder defeated the Whitehouse Lady Cats in an early game, but storms that descended upon the area later in the evening forced the suspension of Troup's late game against the Hubbard Extreme.

That game is scheduled to be completed beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday.

The winner between the Thunder and the Extreme will advance to play the Temple Royalty on Thursday evening.

Troup's lone tournament defeat came at the hands of the Royalty earlier this week.

Team Troup won two games on Tuesday when they knocked off the Dension Buzz and the Corsicana Tigers.

Rusk's Bearcats saw their tourney time come to a close on Wednesday following a loss to the Hot Shots from Rockdale.

The tournament is expected to crown its champion on Friday night at the Rusk Sports Complex.
