For the third straight year the Nashville Scrappers are heading to Baum Stadium to play for a state championship.
It’s worked out pretty well for the team the last two trips.
The Scrappers have won back to back state championships, and have turned into a dominant power in Class 4A.
To have this sort of sustained success is never easy, and the Scrappers say they are excited to be back in the title game.
Kyle Slayton said, “Well it’s a great feeling. We’ve really had a good year. It’s been a super three year run. These seniors have won 109 games in four years. Two district championships, two regional championships, and a chance to play for a third straight championship is special.”
Tristen Jamison said, “It’s a surreal feeling. It’s something that you really can’t describe. Coming back to it for the third straight year, you know a lot of teams live for the chance to be there once, but for us to be able to do it three times is something really special.”
The Scrappers are once again facing Shiloh Christian in the title game.
This is the third straight season the two have met in the championship, with the Scrappers winning the previous two titles.
That game will be Friday at 12:30 at Baum Stadium.
NBC 6 Sports will be at Baum Stadium on Friday for the state championship game. Follow on Twitter at @ktalsports, and on Facebook at KTAL Sports.
