CHAMPIONSHIP GAME ENDS A SEASON THAT ALMOST WASN'T
On a very cold and clear Friday night in Cookeville, the Wildcats battled a hungry opponent in last year's State Championship runner-up, Summit. An early and significant lead was too much for the Cats to overcome, as the game finished 28-7. This team with such heart persevered through a difficult and uncertain season to take an historic run at the State Championship. Well fought, Wildcats! You should be proud. We certainly are!
WILDCATS ROAR IN SHUT-OUT SEMIFINALS GAME, 14-0
Oak Ridge witnessed a real spectacle on Friday night, as the Wildcats held court in Jack Armstrong Stadium! Blankenship Field was once again the site of a TSSAA semifinals game, and the fans came out in support! Two strong defenses battled back and forth before the Wildcats ran away with it and never looked back! On to Cookeville on Friday! Photo by Barry Houchin.
