Tiger Fan of the Week wants Monday News and Notes

Phillip Freeman

As Winter Sports head into State Championship runs and Spring Sports prepare to open their seasons, there are a lot of headlines.  Let’s get to it.

Tiger Basketball begins the road to Rupp Arena and the Sweet Sixteen State Tournament in Lexington this week.  St. X takes on Brown this Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. in the Brother John Wills Arena.  Looking ahead, the Tigers should be in the 26th District Championship on Thursday in the Wills Arena; game time is set for 7:00 p.m.  Look for another thrilling game in the championship, as St. X will presumably take on Male in a rematch of fierce rivals.  The Tigers edged the Bulldogs 70-67 in an electrifying, double-overtime battle at Male on Feb. 7th.

Tiger Swimming will go to war at Ralph Wright Natorium Friday and Saturday in search of its 26th consecutive State Championship and 50th overall.  St. X will have to fend off a hungry Covington Catholic team, who has as good a shot as ever to break the streak.  Competition starts at 10:00 a.m. on both days.  In addition to the State Championship, the Tigers will also be fighting to finish off a fourth consecutive undefeated season.

2014 Lacrosse Green Gold Game Landscape

Tiger Lacrosse begins practice this week; rosters were announced last weekend, and the hunt for a sixth State Championship in seven years is on.  The Tiger Lax Green-Gold Game is set for this Saturday, March 1st, from 10-12 a.m. at Brother Thomas More Stadium.  The season opener is scheduled for Wednesday, March 5th, against Paul Dunbar High School.  Game time is set for 7:00 p.m. at Brother Thomas More Stadium.

Tiger Rugby will welcome one of the best rugby teams in the nation to Brother Thomas More Stadium on Saturday.  Indianapolis Cathedral High School was ranked number one in the country last season and will be the Tigers’ opponents in their season opener.  The A game is scheduled for 3:00 p.m., and the B game is set for 4:30.

Tomorrow is WSTX Sports’ own Evan Shaheens’ birthday! Everyone make sure to tweet @E_Shaheen82 and wish him a Happy Birthday tomorrow!  Thanks for everything you do for the Tiger Sports Family, Evan!

It will be a busy week and a busy weekend for sure for Tiger Sports.  Tiger fans, make sure to get out to as many events as possible!  Go Tigers!
