“I think that we need to play better than our record. We need to learn how to win close games. This tournament is going to be tough with some good teams. I think we are the smallest team but we’re going to play these different teams with different styles and we are going to learn from them and improve,” said head coach Phil Todd. “As far as coaching, we need to do a better job at getting them ready to play physically and mentally and push our boys everyday and work this region. We are going work hard and improve as individuals and as a team.”
The Logan County Cougars will play at 8:00 pm. at Logan County High School. The Cougars will face the Tigers from Caldwell County. The Cougars have started the season with a 2-6 record after their close loss to Barren County last Thursday.
This tournament will follow with the first Clash of the Cats double-header next Friday at Russellville High School.
