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 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).
