Two powerhouse basketball teams from North Mississippi will face off tonight as Tishomingo County travels to Ingomar. The Lady Falcons are coming off a 1A state championship with a 53-38 win over Biggersville. The Lady Braves lost in the third round last year, to the eventual runner-ups, the Pontotoc Lady Warriors.
Junior, Macie Phifer, is looking to lead the Lady Falcons back to the big house to compete for a 13th state title for the program and 3rd championship in the last 4 years. This game will give the Lady Falcons some great competition to see if they have the endurance to make it through February.
The Tishomingo County Lady Braves have several leaders on their team but when it comes to scoring, it has been all Meg Moore so far. 8th grader Meg Moore, along with her sister, Reese Moore, are hungry to get back to the big house. Reese was able to make the trip to Jackson, as a sophomore, to compete for a state title. In her final season at TCHS, a golden ball would solidify her legacy as well as begin the legacy for her sister, Meg.
