HUNTSVILLE, TN (WLAF) – The threat of severe weather has prompted Scott High officials to postpone Tuesday night’s games with Campbell. WLAF will announced the rescheduled date when it is decided.
The Jellico-Sunbright games are also postponed.
It’s been almost three weeks since the Cougars and Lady Cougars played in a doubleheader, and tonight on Highlander Court, Campbell faces a familiar opponent in Scott in the first doubleheader of the new year. These next door rivals played on Brown Court on Dec. 13 in a split with the Lady Highlanders and Cougars winning. Watch tonight’s live telecast right here over the WLAF – Lindsay’s Carpet & Paint Center video player starting at 6:30pm.
The JV Lady Cougars start their game today at 5:00 o’clock.
“Excited to get going again,” said Lady Cougar Coach Jason Kitts as Cougar Coach Ernie Clawson said, “It was good to finish the first part of the season on a high note winning 3 out of our last 4 games.”
Both the Lady Cougars and Cougars start 2023 after wins to close out 2022; the Lady Cougars last Thursday over Grace Baptist Academy of Chattanooga and the Cougars on Dec. 21 over Birmingham’s Heritage Christian Academy. The Lady Cougars are 7 & 9 while the Cougars are 7 & 6.
It was this time last season when the Cougars jelled and made an impressive run to the regional tournament. Coach Clawson explains about this year’s squad, “We improved in a couple of areas that made us a better team; first, our 3 point shooting improved in the Christmas Tourney and our bench started contributing with much confidence. Going into January against our tough district, it is important for us to be consistent behind the arc and continue to gain confidence from our bench play.”
The Lady Cougars have spent the last few days of practice working on details of fundamentals. “Heading to Scott tonight, should be a great atmosphere, and I still think the district is wide open,” said Coach Kitts. The coach adds that several teams in the district played well over the Christmas break including Central. Campbell hosts Central next Tuesday. “We have made some adjustments going forward, and it should be an exciting two months,” said Kitts.
“We have confidence in our team that we will respond to the challenge of our tough district teams and make another surge when it counts the most; tournament time,” said Clawson, in his third season.
The Lady Cougars are forced to play without Lacey Pemberton tonight. The versatile sophomore, who also jumps center, suffered an ankle injury early in last Thursday’s game. She will be reevaluated on Thursday, according to Coach Kitts. Pemberton has started all 16 games this season for Campbell.
