TCHS hosts Winter Homecoming Saturday

Jan. 11—TIFTON — Tift County basketball has set Winter Coming for Saturday, Jan. 13 when the Blue Devils and Lady Devils take on Lee County at The Palace.

Junior varsity games begin at 3 p.m. and varsity is scheduled to tip at 6 p.m. against the invading Trojans.

The night before they play Lee, TCHS teams have road contests at Northside of Warner Robins. This week was going to be even fuller, but the risk of bad weather Tuesday caused school closures and the postponement of games at Houston County.

Lee will be a big matchup especially for the Devils. The Trojans were Class 6A state runners-up last year and are currently 12-2. Tift split games with Lee, including a 17-3 4th quarter run to beat Lee 35-24 at home.

The Lady Trojans will bring a 5-8 record to The Palace to match up against 11-3 Tifton, who is ranked in several state polls. Lee saw a four-game winning streak snapped against Terrell County last Saturday, according to MaxPreps. They are 1-0 in the region with a close victory over Northside.
