KINGMAN - The Kingman Academy Lady Tigers will look for their fifth straight 3A Charter Athletic Association title beginning today when they face fourth-seeded South Ridge at 5 p.m. at Phoenix College.

"We are feeling confident, but you don't ever want to get too confident," said KAHS coach Amber Freed. "We are going in looking to score some runs and play hard. You don't want to get overconfident and go in with the wrong attitude."

The top-seeded Lady Tigers (18-1) beat South Ridge twice this year, 24-2 on March 27 and again on April 30 by the score of 23-3.

KAHS has outscored its opponents 303-59 while averaging 16 runs a game. The lone loss for the Lady Tigers occurred on March 26th, a 12-3 setback against MALC in a non-conference game.

"Everyone is out to get us," Freed said. "We're the top dog and everyone is gunning for us,"

If the Lady Tigers win today, they will face either No. 2 seed Heritage or No. 3 American Leadership in Saturday's championship game. That would mark the final CAA competition for KAHS - the school is moving to the Arizona Interscholastic Association beginning in the fall.

"This is the best in our conference and we have to go in with the attitude that we need to play hard," Freed said.

Pitcher Kylie Tomlinson will lead KAHS despite battling some control problems during the year. It's something that Freed isn't concerned about heading into the playoffs.

"When it comes down to it, she pitches better when the pressure is on," Freed said. "When it really counts, she buckles down and throws the ball."

For fans heading to Phoenix today, the timing and location couldn't have been more perfect for KAHS. With the softball game starting at 5 p.m., fans will have plenty of time to catch the softball game and then make the five-mile trip to Maryvale Stadium, where the Kingman Academy baseball team will be playing in the championship game at 8 p.m.

"Provided that everything goes well with our game, we will probably head over there and cheer them on," Freed said.
