Ryan Hammett

Caldwell County junior Ryan Hammett scans the floor for the next best move in the Tigers’ win last week over Heritage Christian Academy.

The Caldwell County Tigers managed to get one game in at the West Kentucky Hoops Classic before freezing temperatures and icy roads shut down the event.

The Tigers were originally set to play a team from Biggersville, Mississippi, but just a day before the event was scheduled to take place, Biggersville pulled out of the tournament due to impending weather, forcing the Tigers and Lady Tigers to scramble for replacements. The Lady Tigers were unable to find a replacement, but the Heritage Christian Academy Warriors made the trip to Princeton for their first ever appearance in the annual event.
