The Macon County Junior High School girls basketball team traveled to Murfreesboro on January 17th to participate in the 37th Annual James C. Haile Invitational State Tournament. Coach Jeff Beam’s team faced off against Southside from Lebanon in the large school division of the tournament.

The Jr. High Tigerettes started strong. They quickly jumped out to a 4-0 lead but the girls from Southside battled back to tie the game at 10-10 by the end of the first period. Macon County went a little cold and found themselves trailing 18 to 20 at the half and unable to capitalize on the 10 team fouls of their opponents. After halftime Coach Beam turned up the pressure, switching defenses early and often.

Briley Driver made a steal as the third quarter ended with a score of 27 to 26 and the Macon Jr. High team in the lead. Strong defense and rebounding from Emily Harris, Leah Anderson, Marisa Owens, and Driver freed up Reese Shrum to score 12 of her 17 points in the 4th period to secure the win. The final score was MCJHS 41, Southside 34. The Jr. High Tigerette now stands at 14-0.

Scoring was Briley Driver 4 pts., Emily Harris 8 pts., Leah Anderson 4 pts., Reese Shrum 17 pts., Marissa Owens 4 pts., and Lindsey Belton 4 pts. Brooklyn McClard and Logan Hernandez played but did not score.

The girls will face the winner of Watertown and DeKalb County in the championship game on January 29th at 4 p.m. at Middle TN Christian in Murfreesboro.

Good Luck Tigerettes!

The crowd goes wild after Tigerette #42 Reese Shrum nails an unsuspected three-point shot  late in the fourth quarter, to take the final lead of the State Tournament game against Southside. Macon County won by a score of 41-34.

The Red Boiling Springs High School Basketball team had previously re-scheduled the January 11th District 8A meeting with Friendship Christian for this past Thursday, January 20, 2011, however the threat of accumulating snow, which also caused Macon County schools to close at noon, cancelled the make-up game with the Commanders.

On Saturday, January 22, 2011, the Red Boiling Springs Basketball teams were scheduled to face Westmoreland in a regular season game, however they juggled their schedule with neighboring teams to allow Macon County to face Westmoreland in for their previously cancelled district game.

Red Boiling Springs has rescheduled the Friendship Christian game for Thursday, February 3, 2011 at home.

This Friday night, January 21st, RBS will hold their Basketball Homecoming Ceremony, which should begin around 5 p.m. The games against The Webb School will immediately follow. Come out and support the Red Boiling Springs Red & Grey Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs!
