Today’s weather with more clouds than sun and highs in the lower 60s will be welcome sights to those playing sports outdoors.Cougar Soccer opens its 2019 season this evening at Knoxville. CCHS visits the Fulton Falcons at 6 pm.
Cougar Coach Bryan Horton is excited about the new season that starts this evening which features seven games in 11 days. Horton said, “We played well this past weekend at our preseason play date and scored a lot of goals in two 30-minute games and did not allow any goal. So, that was a great sign.”
“We have so many questions to answer and with not much of a preseason, I am sure we will have to work through a lot of things,” said Horton. He feels that over the next 11 days, he’ll have a much better read for how good this team is and can be.
Horton adds, “The one thing we have work on with this group of student-athletes is to come together as a team, and for now, it seems to be happening, but we will not truly be able to see this until we face some adversity. If they will stick together we can have a great season.”
At Tyson Park, near the intersection of Cumberland Avenue/Kingston Pike, is where Cougar and Lady Cougar Tennis opens its 2019 campaign. CCHS takes on Powell.
CCHS Tennis Coach Josh Parker said, “We are very excited to get started with Tennis this afternoon at Tyson Park against Powell. We have 25 student-athletes in our program, and they’ve worked hard and practiced in the cold. We are ready to compete and win!”
