The Newton County softball team took a trip to Caledonia High School Saturday afternoon in hopes of repeating history.
The Lady Cougars won their last fast-pitch title in 2003 at CHS. They needed one win Saturday to secure the school its fourth championship in the sport since the program began in Decatur nine years ago.
The Lady Confederates would make NCHS work for the hardware, though. Caledonia won the first game of the day by a run to tie the series at 1-1.
The Lady Cougars pulled out a 4-3 victory in 8 innings in game three to win this year's 3A championship.
