Thursday, July 17, the junior jackets participated in a 7 on 7 tournament in Bridgeport, Alabama. The Grundy County Junior Jackets played five games, winning 4 out of 5. Other teams participating were South Pittsburg, Bridgeport and Pisgah AL.
Coach Casey Tate was pleased with the results as his team tied for first in the event.
“Assistant coaches Nick Jensen, Brad Dees, and Skyler Seals had the boys well prepared. I’m really excited about some of the things our guys were able to do, and also recognized several areas we need to improve in if we plan on competing for the top spot in the S.V.C Our boys were rewarded for the hard work they have put in, but more work is required to get where we want to be,” said Tate.
