Last weekend we enjoyed victories for both the basketball and football Tigers. I know everyone was thrilled that our Tigers pulled off the win against North Carolina State. I never doubted them, but the game’s emotional swings certainly kept us on our toes right up to the final whistle. It was also great to watch the basketball team easily defeat Belmont Abbey in an exhibition game, and we are all looking forward to a new basketball season under the leadership of Tiger Coach Brad Brownell.
It’s hard to believe there is only one home football game left — the most anticipated game of the season as we take on the Carolina Gamecocks. It will certainly be an exciting day in Death Valley, and we will make sure the Rally Cats are in tip top shape for our last performance of the season on the football field.
With football season ending and basketball beginning there will be important changes for the Rally Cats. We exchange our sequins for purple pants, and switch our practice focus from sideline performances in Death Valley to basketball court performances at Little John Coliseum. Our first half time performance will be this Friday, as the Tigers take on Western Carolina at 8 pm.
Practice this week has been centered on fine-tuning our halftime and time-out routines. Naturally we hope to see a large crowd to cheer on our basketball Tigers and to enjoy our performances. Friday night will also be our new girls’ first time on the court, and they couldn’t be more excited. We are looking forward to another weekend of victories for both the Tiger football team against Florida State and the basketball team against Western Carolina. See you at the John!
