Tigers going to the 'Boro' (03/09/10)
There are only eight slots available at the state tournament in Murfreesboro and the Marshall County Tigers punched their ticket as one of the elite eight, coming away with a gut wrenching, hard fought 47-36 victory over Martin Luther King in a TSSAA sectional game Monday night at the Dottie Kelso Memorial Gymnasium in Lewisburg.
MCHS head coach Jason Tigert said about the tough win, "We knew it was going to be one of those battles. The referees let us play tonight, it was very physical and our guys did not back down and either did they. It was one of those classic sub-state games."
