No.1: East Carter wins 62nd District Softball Championship. Derek Calhoun and the East Carter softball team had not won a 62nd District Championship in five seasons. The previous four had been won by West Carter. But the Lady Raiders finally returned to the top of the mountain after defeating the Lady Comets 5-1 to earn its first championship since 2008. Tori Qualls would provide the offensive firepower, hitting a homerun and seventh grader Montana Fouts would hit a two-RBI base hit to pace East Carter. Inside the circle, Morgan Jacobs was equally as effective, yielding only one run in the seventh inning on a wild pitch.
