At the annual seven-on-seven tournament, several Kentucky teams rotate playing against several Tennessee teams. Trigg lost against a solid Mt. Juliet team and fell 22-18 to Cookeville in a contest that would have been a win if not for a dropped pass in the end zone with less than a minute left to play. Cookeville finished as the Tennessee champion, while Bowling Green won on the Kentucky side.
Trigg defeated Red Boiling Springs, Westmoreland, Portland and Trousdale County, and both losses were against Class 6A schools.
“We were very pleased with our effort,” TCHS head coach Shannon Burcham said. “Defensively, we’ve got some kids that can play pass coverage at this point. It’s a great place to start.”
The team is scheduled for another early test at another seven-on-seven event Thursday at Murray State University.
Flag football: Burcham said plans are currently underway to begin a flag football league for students in first and second grades. Trigg’s Little League Football for students in grades 3-6 will continue as usual. For more information, call burcham at 522-0107 or Andy Allen at 871-1386.
Meet the Wildcats: Burcham said he is also currently finalizing plans for a Meet the Wildcats dinner on Friday, Aug. 6.
The event will serve as a chance to introduce the 2010 Wildcats.
Burcham said there will also be an auction for Trigg County and University of Kentucky items autographed by former TCHS, UK and National Football League running back Al Baker, who is scheduled to attend the event. Those interested in the items must be present at Meet the Wildcats to win.
Burcham also said Baker is tentatively scheduled to be the guest speaker at the Century Club dinner on Thursday, Sept. 2, the night before Trigg hosts the Wildcat Chevrolet Bowl.
TCHS athletic director Jim Perrin said the ‘Cats will play the second game of the bowl and face Hopkinsville at approximately 8 p.m.. Calloway County will face Greenwood in the first contest at 5 p.m.
