Friday night was a great night for the Tiger Nation. Both hoops squads advanced to the 2nd round of the GHSA 6A State Tournament with wins over Pope High School.
The Lady Greyhounds kept the game close, but a strong fourth quarter by the Lady Tigers helped the team bounce back from an early 1st round playoff exit last season. The Lady Tigers (18-9), the number two seed from Region 5, will now travel to Grovetown (19-6) to face the number one seed from Region 3. The Lady Warriors advanced to the second round by defeating Northside Warner Robins 43-40.
In boy’s action, the Greyhounds fought the entire contest, but a great team effort by the Tigers was too much for them to overcome. The Tigers (20-9), the number two seed from Region 5, will also travel to the Augusta area. The Tigers will take on Evans High School (20-6), the number one seed from Region 3. The Knights advanced to the second round with a 79-60 win over Coffee.
The Lady Tigers will tip off at 5:30 pm on Thursday, February 20th. The Tigers will tip off at 7:30 pm on Thursday, February 20th.
Evans High School is only 15 minutes from Grovetown High School, allowing TIGER NATION to catch the girl’s game & then make a short commute to cheer on the boys.
