The Mansfield Jr High Tigers are really starting to find their groove and come together as a team. The Tigers and Lady Tigers faced an incredibly good Lavaca team last Friday night. Both Lady Tiger teams beat the Lady Arrows with the Jr Varsity winning 22-6 and the Varsity closing the game 37-26. The Tigers pushed hard with everything that they had but ended up falling short to the Arrows in both games. The Jr Varsity finished with a score of 36-18 and the Varsity came in at 46-24.
“Against Lavaca, we played with a lot of intensity to earn the win,” said Head Coach for the Lady Tigers, Erica McKay. “As a team, we have to continue to work on being aggressive on defense without getting ourselves into foul trouble early and making the easy shots from the beginning of the game.”
The Tigers and Lady Tigers have a full schedule coming up as both teams will be playing almost every day this week. On Monday, Dec 3rd, the 7th grade, and Jr High will face Charleston at home starting at 4:30 pm. The boys and girls played their first round of the Waldron Jr High Arvest Classic this past Saturday.
