The Marshall County Tigerettes (22-4, 13-1 District) recorded their fourth-straight lopsided victory this past Tuesday, pummeling Spring Hill 62-31 on Senior Night at Dottie Kelso Gymnasium.

Marshall County held a commanding 36-15 lead at the half before eventually opening up a 38-point cushion early in the fourth quarter en route to their fourth consecutive win over the Lady Raiders (2-23, 1-12 District). The Tigerettes clinched a share of the regular season District title along with Lewis County and have outscored their last four opponents by an average of thirty-six points.

With the District tournament looming on the horizon, MCHS head coach David Steely was looking to send a message to Spring Hill, which could play Marshall County in the first round depending if the Tigerettes lose the coin flip for the top seed with Lewis County.

"There's a chance we'll play them Monday night and we didn't want them to come in here and believe they would have a chance to win," said Steely. "We wanted to pull away and win convincingly."
