MaKenzie Prince did damage with her bat and on the mound while the Smyrna Lady Bulldog defense backed up their star pitcher to win the TSSAA Class AAA state softball title with a 6-3 victory over Dickson County Friday evening. Battling out of the losers bracket, the Lady Cougars topped Clarksville 6-2 earlier in the day and would have had to beat Smyrna twice to earn their second state title. It was Smyrna that earlier knocked Dickson County into the elimination games with a 1-0 victory Thursday. While Prince wasn’t overpowering on the mound, striking out two while giving up six hits and four walks, she made up for it with her bat by smacking a two-run homer to open the scoring in the second inning. Smyrna added another run in the fourth off a walk, an error and a fielder’s choice to go up 3-0. Dickson County finally got on the board in the fourth when Selena Crafton and Payton Grove drew back-to-back walks, were sacrificed over by Ashley Scott and then Brooklin Lee scored Crafton on a groundout. But another of Dickson County’s five errors and one of only three walks given up by freshman Lee led to three more runs for Smyrna in the fifth to extend the lead to 6-1. Dickson County tried to rally in the seventh as Makray Odom picked up an RBI single to score Allison Pendergrass and pinch runner Delane Bryant scored on an error, but that was as close as the Lady Cougars would get. Smyrna claims its first state softball title after finishing as runner up in 1980. Dickson County places second in its second trip to the championship after winning the title in 2002.
