Seven seniors competed on the team this year as the top seven players. Head coach Justin Bigsby was quoted in the Fremont Tribune (Fri. Oct 17, 2008) “On the one hand, you have a ton of experience and maturity, but in the back of your mind you keep thinking that at the end of the season you’re going to lose a great group of guys. This has been one of my most enjoyable seasons as a coach, and it’s largely due to this senior group. It’s a State tournament I won’t forget, and definitely a team that I won’t forget.”

Congratulations Tigers on a good season.
