Morgan Harbolt, Executive Editor

Chargers can still compete with the Tigers.

The Chargers proved that they can show out against one of their biggest competitors, Fern Creek.

The week started off Tuesday, Jan. 7 with an away game at Waggener Highschool. The team fell 84-63. Senior Ethan Boyer said, “I feel like we didn’t play our best. We we’re still pretty worn out from the two tournaments we we’re in over winter break, but we still should have brought more energy against Waggener.”

The next game was Friday, Jan. 10 on the home court, against the Fern Creek Tigers. The Tigers are one of the Chargers biggest rivals this season. The Tigers are ranked 16 in the state and have a record of 10-4.

The game was back and forth the whole time. The Chargers led, then the Tigers led off and on. Neither team ever took a major lead in the game. The score was tied 37-37 at the end of the third quarter. The game ended in the score of 51-48 Tigers. Senior Zak Perdew said, “Our goal is to improve every game. Even though our record isn’t great as long as we keep improving we will win the games that count in the postseason.”

This week the Chargers will get a break. There are no scheduled games as of right now. Their next game will be Tuesday, Jan. 21 at Whitefield Academy.
