Cosby High School has only been around six years, but it all ready has built an athletic program that one that's been around for decades would envy. Tuesday, the school in Midlothian will host four state quarterfinals games in different sports.
Four of the schools spring sports won the Central Region tournament, meaning that the baseball, softball and boys and girls soccer teams will all host the first round of the state tournament. All the Titans teams will play the runnerups of the Northern Region tournament. The winners of those games will play in the Final Four at Westfield High School in Chantilly this weekend.
The baseball team overcame losing the regular season district title to James River, but came back to beat the Rapids in the district title game, and then again in the region title game. Paced by the coach's son, catcher Jake Lowery, the offensive powerhouse is looking to get past Lake Braddock at 3pm.
Also at 3pm, the Cosby softball team will play Oakton (the softball and baseball fields at Cosby are not lighted). The softball team knocked off Patrick Henry in the region championship game, a team that had lost only once all season long.
At 5:30, the Cosby girls soccer team will play W.T. Woodson out of the North. The Titan girls survived penalty kicks this weekend to take the region title.
Following the girls at the stadium, the Titans boys soccer team will take on Lake Braddock. Cosby overcame the loss of reigning national Gatorade Player of the Year Luis Rendon to injury to win the Central Region Title.
Tickets at Cosby for Tuesday are $10, and will get you into all of the games.
