A Look Ahead

Lady Tigers Home Opener Follows Regional Road Game at Whitley

After two decisive victories to tip-off the regular season, the #10 ranked Clay County Lady Tigers return to action Thursday for a tough regional contest against host Whitley County.

Thursday’s game is the third straight road test for Clay, after posting victories over Breathitt County and Harlan to begin the year.

Lady Colonel Coach Larry Anderson may have his best team in recent memory this season.

Whitley County boasts a 3-0 mark on the year, with wins over Harlan, McCreary Central, and Knott County Central.

“They’re a very good team,” said Lady Tiger Head Coach James “Ivy” Burchell, “We must limit our turnovers, while trying to turn them over when possible.”

Heading Out

Lady Tigers Begin Year With Solid Road Tests

The three-time defending 13th region champion Clay County Lady Tigers will tip off their regular season Saturday, beginning a tough stretch of road games for the Lady Tigers.

Currently ranked #10 in the state, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader, the Lady Tigers are coming off two preseason wins over Holy Cross and Bell County.

After two scrimmages, the Lady Tigers have been led by their inside play.

“I’m very happy with the play of our inside players,” said Lady Tiger Head Coach James “Ivy” Burchell, “Morgan (Chesnut) and Cheyenne (Madden) have carried the load offensively in our first two scrimmages.”

Senior point guard Alisha Mitchell has had a bit of a slow start during the two preseason games due to an ankle injury, but Coach Burchell said he isn’t worried about her progression.

“She’s not played up to par in the scrimmage games, but I’m not worried about her.  She will be a consistent player for us this season.”

Clay plays their first four of five games on the road, beginning Saturday at Breathitt County.
