The weather forecast alone has wreaked havoc with the Tiger’s game schedule. Three games in the last three weeks have been cancelled: the November 19th game against Trousdale County was moved to January 11th, 2014. The November 26th game against Lebanon was moved to December 14th. And the December 6th game against Livingston Academy was moved to December 12th.
Before the Thanksgiving holiday, on Friday, November 22nd, the boy’s team managed a close game against Westmoreland. They lost by two points, 38-41, but played to win. The girls also played a close game against Westmoreland, achieving a two-point victory at 50-48. The girls played a second game on November 30th against Joliet Catholic from Illinois. They lost 40-69. Let’s hope the teams get a chance to play this coming week. Home games are scheduled for Tuesday, December 10th against Upperman, Thursday, December 12th against Livingston, and Saturday, December 14th against Lebanon. The Saturday game starts at 3 pm. Additionally, they are scheduled to play an away game against York Institute on Friday, December 13th.
