Caleb Stephens(on left) a Junior, got 2nd place in 181 class and John Poe, also a Junior, got 4th in his weight class. The boys will compete at State later on this month.
The Tigers, competing in area play this past week, fell short of their goal to make the State tournament.
Fresh off an opening round area victory over Tupelo, the Tigers would take on the Red Oak Eagles in the brand new 16.8 million dollar Kingston gym. The gym was spectacular and felt like the Tigers were already at the big show.
