Avery Lady Blizzard Takes Part In BBall Tournament
The Lady Blizzard recently traveled to JC, Tennessee to Science Hill High School to play in a very competitive tournament with teams from around the region. The Lady Blizzard are made up of 7 th & 8th grade girls from the middle schools in Avery County. Coaches Paul Wiseman, Randy Ingram and Mat Wiseman were very pleased with the Lady Blizzard efforts and finished the tournament with 1 win and 2 losses. Coach Paul Wiseman said that most of the teams they competed against recruited from other cities and counties , something the Lady Blizzard does not do. In the final game the Lady Blizzard played , they pressed the Blountville Lady Tigers full court most of the game, until the fourth quarter when the game was pretty much decided in the Lady Blizzards favor , then they fell back into normal defense showing great sportsmanship. The Lady Blizzard won the game 23---11. The Lady Blizzard will be playing this weekend at another tournament this Saturday at Science Hill in JC said Coach Randy Ingram , we hope folks will make the short trip and support our team. We look forward to a great tournament Coach Mat Wiseman stated , if you would like to find out more about the Lady Blizzard and how you can support them , you can contact the Avery County Rec Center at 828-733-8266.
