The Tigers took a victory win against the Trojans, 49-45.

The Tigers have been working very hard throughout the summer and the school year by having many open gyms and numerous practices Monday through Saturday. Coach Ray, along with the assistant coaches, have worked very hard with the boys thus far, and is very excited to see what this season brings. Coach Ray is determined to allow the cheerleaders and fans to be as involved with the team as they can, while making sure this year is a fun and exciting experience.
