Striving for Victory

Hanah Cooper, Editor

The Conrad Allen tournament tipped off Saturday, December 8 and will end Saturday, December 15. On the first night, the Indians played Crab Orchard and won the game 47 to 53. Wednesday night, the Indians will take on who is currently their biggest rival: the Cisne Lions.

After a rough game on December 4, an argument began amongst the boys. That game ended in an Indian victory and stirred up lots of drama between the two teams. After a comment by one of the Lions was made on social media, the Indians have sought out to defend themselves and plan to do so Wednesday night.

Indians do not return to play until Friday, December 14. They will play Red Hill to send them into the final night. Saturday is the championship game and Wayne City is looking to redeem themselves from their emotional loss last season.

They are currently 1 and 0 for their tournament record, and by the end of it, they plan to come out with a 4 and 0 record and a championship trophy. Senior player, Kyle Sledge, shared his excitement and fire about the tournament, “My goal is to win all the games in our pool, then advance to the championship game. We want to give Wayne City another Conrad Allen championship title. Come support!”
