SMHS-CCHS rivalry continues tonight at CCHS

CROSSVILLE — Cumberland County will host Stone Memorial tonight in the renewal of the series which began during the 2006-’07 season, but besides county pride, one other thing has been added to the rivalry — District 6AAA supremcy.

The Lady Panthers (0-3, 9-9) lead the series 11-3, but the Lady Jets (2-1, 17-1) won both games last season 57-38 and 64-52.

Coach Radhika Miller’s team is tied for first in District 6AAA with White County (2-1, 12-6), Rhea County (2-1, 14-4) and Cookeville (2-1, 9-9), while Warren County (1-2, 15-8) is fifth and the Lady Panthers are sixth.

The Lady Jets, despite their 62-58 loss at Rhea County, are  tied for ninth in this week’s Class AAA poll with the 15-1 Farragut Lady Admirals.

The Panthers (3-0, 14-4) have a 13-1 series edge over the Jets (2-1, 7-9). CCHS won the first game of the series 45-44, but have dropped 13 straight games to SMHS.

SMHS leads the district, followed by White County (2-10, 14-4), Cookeville (2-1, 13-8), CCHS, Warren County (0-3, 6-15) and Rhea County (0-3, 3-10).

In other district action tonight, Cookeville visits White County and Warren County travels to Rhea County.

The Tennessee Shooting Stars basketball team, the 2013 70-74 Senior Olympic national champions will be performing at halftime of the girls game Friday night, and will play again during the Feb. 4 contest at SMHS.

The Cumberland County cheerleaders competition team will be performing at half-time of the boys game. The squad is still seeking donations for its trip to the national championships Feb. 8-9 in Florida.
