MURFREESBORO - Short memories and a laser-like focus allowed Jefferson County High to turn a crushing defeat into a state championship Friday evening.

Entering the day as the only unbeaten team left in the double-elimination AAA State Softball Tournament, the Lady Patriots lost Friday’s first game to Murfreesboro Siegel 10-1, but came back with a brilliant performance in the nightcap to win the title, 3-0.
