Your Trigg County Middle School Boys basketball teams had a very exciting week, last week. Your teams, combined, went 5 – 0 and increased both of their records. Your teams are undefeated in district play with your 7th Grade team (6 – 0 in the district, 10 – 0 overall) going into the district tournament. While your 8th Grade team is also doing well (6 – 0 in district play, 10 – 1 overall), making both teams ranked #1 going into the 5th District Middle School Boys Basketball Tournament. The tournament will star your 7th Grade boy’s basketball team, which will be held at TCMS next week. What a great way to continue the school holiday season, huh?

You know, any student who knows me, knows that I LOVE to cook. So, with that said, I am going to compare this past weeks TCMS boys basketball results with that of making a hot fudge sundae.

I will first construct our sundae with two smooth scoops of vanilla ice cream by informing you about the game that your Midcats hosted against Todd County this past Monday. Your 7th Grade team defeated the Rebels 49 – 19. The leading scorers in the game were Luke McKenzie with 14 points, Clark Adams and Cole Gardner, who presented seven points each, with KeShawn Davis adding six points.

I will add some silky hot fudge sauce to the ice cream by letting you know who were the top scorers in the 8th Grade’s 54 – 29 victory against Todd County. The top scorers of the game were Jordan Davis with 16 points, Jermya Love with 10 points, Travis Desrochers and Austin each contributed nine points with DeOnquez Nance added eight points.

Next, I will apply some decadent whipped cream on our sundae by enlightening you about our games versus Crittenden County this past Thursday.

Your 7th Grade team won their meeting against the Rockets by the score of 45 – 21. The top scorers of the game were Cole Gardner with 21 points, Kullen Garner with seven points and Luke McKenzie with five points.

You know, a good hot fudge sundae is nothing without some chopped nuts. And, the chopped nuts on this sundae includes me letting you know about the hard fought, come back victory of your 8th Grade team by defeating Crittenden 50 – 29. Tenacious defense and a drive that rivals anything I have ever seen, led to a victory for your Midcats. The top scorers of the game were DeOnquez Nance with 14 points, Jordan Davis with 10 points, David Wease contributed eight points with Travis Desrochers adding seven points for your team.

I ask you, what sundae would be complete without a cherry on top? Well, this one has a big, fat cherry on it.

Oh my goodness! The basketball game that included your Midcats and Lone Oak ended in a 77 – 71 victory for your Midcats this past Saturday! 77 – 71?!? That sounds more like a college score that you may hear on ESPN! (Watch out UK, U of L, Murray, Western, K-State…)

Your Midcats fought against a rough and talented team to claim a well – deserved victory. Your guys played hard. They played really hard! The top scorers of the game were Jermya Love with 14 points, Jordan Davis with 12 points, Travis Desrochers with 11 points and David Wease with five points. But, in my opinion, there were two players who stood out in the game. DeOnquez Nance scored a season high of 28 points and Luke McKenzie made a remarkable seven out of eight free throws that helped catapult your Midcats to a win. Wow, guys! Wow!

On a personal note, I would like to thank my right hand coaching man, Michael Stinnett. He offered lots of great advice, on Saturday, and I am very, very thankful for it. He is very work-with-able (if that is a term) and there is NO other person in Trigg County with whom I would like to work with. Thanks, Mike!

Our TCMS Boys Basketball team would like to thank everyone that has helped up with our season. We would like to thank Mr. Free, who painted our gymnasium. It looks really good! We also would also like to thank our parents. Without you, our teams could not exist. To our cafeteria personnel, thank you for the ice. I mean that. To Dr. Dennis Adams, thank you for your help last week. We, and (I can safely say) Crittenden County thanks you for your help. We also would like to thank Brigitte Durham and her cheerleaders. Your young ladies are second to none. And, we would like to thank our athletic director, Rodney Davis. He is TRULY a hard worker and makes sure that everything is in order with our athletic department. Rodney, you are truly appreciated!

By the time you read this article, our 8th Grade boys and girls would have played Hopkinsville Middle School at home Tuesday (I hope we won). Our next games will be with the boys and girls 7th Grade teams against Christian County on Thursday. GO MIDCATS!!!
