    Raiders head coach Ron Couch has made pride a key point of focus in his coaching strategy.

    “You’ve got to have pride and that means fighting when you’re down,” he said. “When things don’t go your way, you keep going, no matter what you do.”

    As the game’s final seconds ticked off the clock, that pride was evident in the expression on the faces of Raiders athletes and the fans on the home side of the gym for Thursday’s contest against rival Carroll County.

    It was a bittersweet home opener for the Trimble County Lady Raiders Friday night in that they fell victim to border rivals Carroll County but not before a frenetic final six minutes of play that brought the home team within striking distance.

    Randy Wilson is no stranger to softball, having been involved with the sport for nearly a decade, watching his daughter move through the ranks.

    “I found a passion and love for it,” Wilson said. “And that’s where we’re at.”

    Wilson was a coach at Southwestern Middle School and moved up as an assistant coach at the varsity level. However, this year, his daughter’s senior year at Southwestern Jefferson County Schools in Hanover, he’s taking a different direction to become the Lady Raiders varsity softball coach.
