Pisgah, Ala. (WHNT) – The state softball tournament begins Thursday. Nine Tennessee Valley teams are making the trip to Montgomery, hoping to hoist the championship trophy. Pisgah is one of those teams that’s made several excursions to the state capital. They’ve made it to the tournament 14 of the last 15 years.
“A lot of tradition, a lot of great athletes coming through the program,” said Billy Duncan, Pisgah head coach. “I feel pretty lucky to be where I’m at.”
There are several streaks the Lady Eagles have going into the tournament. Pisgah has won 25-straight games and have not allowed a run in 38-consecutive innings.
“We play one pitch at a time, one bat at a time, one play at a time and that’s why we are so successful,” said Quincey Nance, Pisgah outfielder.
Pisgah opens the tournament at noon Friday against Montgomery Catholic.
