    With the two varsity teams getting 40 offensive plays each, the defenses dominated play with only one score in the 80-play scrimmage. Wartburg used a 34-yard touchdown pass from Tyler Trout to Drew Jenkins on their next-to-last play for the lone score and for a 1-0 win over Sunbright.

    They say it’s a long road to Murfressboro for the TSSAA state championships.

    Kingston’s Murielle Fischer can attest to that.

    Last Tuesday, the Lady Jacket junior Fischer secured a spot in the TSSAA Class A/AA state girls singles tennis tournament, but playing tennis was the easiest part of Fischer’s journey because last year at this time Fischer was play-ing tennis in Switzerland.

    Wednesday’s victory marked Midway’s third straight Region 2-A championship and now the Lady Waves will be gunning for their third straight and fourth trip in the last five years to the TSSAA Class A State Tournament.
