The varsity Dawgs and Lady Dawgs played away games against Gordonsville on December 3rd and Watertown on December 10th. They lost both games. Their home game on December 7th, against Webb, was cancelled due to inclement weather. They are scheduled to play an away game against Mt. Juliet on December 14th, a home game against Westmoreland on the 17th of December, an away game against McClain Christian on December 19th and a rematch with Mt. Juliet in Red Boiling Springs on the 20th. The rest of December will be occupied with tournament play: the Scottsville Tournament for the girls and the Nera White Tournament for the boys. Let’s hope the weather holds so we can see them play.
