This past week the Tigers kept rolling with solid play from their starters and have found a nice rotation from their bench play. Most notably, Blake Harris. Harris, a Junior Guard has provided a spark for the Tigers on both ends of the floor. This past week he netted 14pts against East Fairmont, 15pts vs. Grafton, and 16 pts against Tygarts Valley, including 5 3’s from behind the arc! His intensity is contagious and his hustle has helped put the Tigers in good position coming down a tough stretch towards the latter part of the season. We are proud of Blake and the entire Tiger squad!
Donovan showed this week what hard work in the off-season can do for a player. He helped his Tigers go 3-1 through a grueling 4 game stretch. He averaged nearly 22 ppg over the 4 games, with a high score of 30 points against the #2 team in the state Fairmont Sr. He also has stepped up his defensive play as well getting the privilege of matching up with the opponents top players. Congratulations to Donovan and the entire Tiger team! We are proud of you!
Haley is coming off a solid performance against RCB High School last Friday night, as the Lady Tigers defeated the Eagles by 20 points. She recorded 11 points and 5 rebounds in the win.

We are proud of you and all the Lady Tigers!!
Elliot has picked up right where he left off last year as establishing himself as one of the top players in the region.

He is an unselfish player and has a desire to make not only himself better, but his teammates as well.
