The 2018 softball season for the Trousdale County Lady Jackets is set to get underway Monday with a game at Mt. Juliet Christian, followed by a home game Tuesday against District 6-A opponent Jackson County.

After coaching the Jim Satterfield Jr. Lady Jackets to a 12-3 record last year, Blake Satterfield has accepted the challenge of rebuilding the Lady Jackets, who went 0-13 in 2017.

“It will be a challenging season, but one that provides opportunity in the future of Trousdale County softball with just three returning starters from last season,” Satterfield said.

The Lady Jackets will compete in District 6-A along with Pickett County, Jackson County, Clay County, Clarkrange, Monterey, Red Boiling Springs and Gordonsville.

Trousdale County’s roster will be a very young one with no seniors, six juniors, two sophomores and 13 freshmen.

Rounding out the coaching staff will be Kyle Gregory, Leah Dickerson and Phillip White.

“The Lady Jackets appreciate all the support in the local community and hope to give fans something to cheer about in the spring of 2018,” Satterfield said.
