May 15, 2018 – Seven track-and-field athletes from Sequatchie County High School have qualified to compete at the state level this year, according to Coach Les Boyum.

Sophomore Channing Barker will travel to Austin Peay University in Clarksville on Thursday to compete in the pentathlon – a test of endurance and skill that includes 100-meter hurdles, shotput, long jump, high jump, and 800-meter run, with 20-minute breaks between events.

Then Barker will join her teammates on Wednesday, May 23, in other state-level events at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro.

May 15, 2018 – The Lady Indians softball team will play DeKalb for the Region 4-AA championship tomorrow night at Sequatchie County High School.

In Monday night action, Sequatchie County beat Upperman, 7-3, and DeKalb defeated Marion County, 15-5, so the two will face off Wednesday, starting at 6 p.m. CDT.

MacKenzie Turner was the winning pitcher for SCHS in the May 14 game.

Sequatchie County took the District 7 title a week ago by beating Marion County.

We had to beat them twice,” Coach Kelly Somerville said Monday. “We played Marion County six times this year. The first four times they beat us, but last Monday we beat them twice, both by one run: 5-4 and 9-8.”

The Lady Indians have a 24-13 record for the year.
