    With only one week remaining until district tournament time, the Tallavana Christian Lady Lions had the only two-win week in girls county basketball.   
    First was a nerve-wracking 51-50 win by Tallavana Christian over Liberty County.  They followed that win up with a 36-20 win over Taylor County. In this final week of the regular season, the team will be practicing in preparation for their participation in the 2A-District 1 tournament at Aucilla Christian.

    Coach Moten gave a mildly optimistic reflection on his team’s progression toward the end of the regular season: “I’m pleased, I think we are coming around. This time of the year you want to start clicking on all cylinders. We gotta get better at executing in our half-court offense.”

  • Jags, Panthers facing challenges...

    The Jaguars have had a tough start to their season due in large part to the fact that they are a youthful team. In spite of having just two seniors on his squad, Coach Reginald Cunningham feels his team can continue improving.
    “I think we are starting to get better at competing,” he said, “but we gotta get better at finishing games.

    Munroe
    The Munroe Lady Cats were able to squeeze in one contest this week with an exam schedule to work around.  The team played at Liberty County on Friday night.

    season.  
    Parramore scored seven points, pulled down four rebounds and had two steals and two blocks.

    Munroe
    The Munroe boys basketball team is looking for improvement first; wins second.  Andrew Eads, in his second year as head coach, is working hard with his young and inexperienced team in hopes to have them producing some upset wins in January.  Last week the team lost three games by similar scores.
