The Jefferson High School Varsity Softball Team, the first seed of region 8 AAA, defeated the Cedar Grove Saints, the fourth seed in region 5 AAA in a best of three series.
The games were originally going to be played at 5pm and 7pm on Wednesday 10/10/2018, but only the first inning of the first game was played due to rain cancelling the game. Although only the first inning of the game was played, that inning showed what was to come in the following games, with Jefferson taking the lead 7-0 in only 1/3 of an inning.
The games we re-scheduled to be played at 3pm and 5pm on Friday 10/12/2018, and Jefferson came ready shutting the Saints out in both games with scores of 15-0 in the first game and 12-0 in the second, and advancing to the second round of the state tournament.
