DEC 3 SHARKS PICThe Middle school boys and girls and the Varsity boys and girls all played their first home game to together on Monday December 5th. Both the boys and girls middle school teams are coached by Joe Bishop. The girls began their game against Trenton at 3:30 and they played very well together, the new 6th graders that recently entered middle school fit right in on the court, Although they lost, they played with enthusiasm and strength with their final score being 43 to 5 .

The Middle school boys played directly after them at 4:30. That is when things started to heat up. They were neck and neck the entire night but, the Trenton Tigers pulled ahead in the end. Their final score was 26 to 20. The starters for the night were Tristan Sloan, Brandon Bowling, John Pelham, Ty Winfield, and Alexander Topping.

Later on that night at 5:30 the Varsity girls played the Lady Tigers. They were lead by coaches Carrie and David Tomlin. This year is CKS Senior Savannah Howard’s last year playing basketball. The ending score for the Varsity girls was 59 to 11.


The last game of the night was the Varsity boys. Their game was the most interesting to watch. They played a tight game all the way through the beginning but, fell behind at the end of the 2nd quarter by about 10 points. They kept this pattern until the 4th quarter. The final score of this game was 58 to 33. The middle and high school cheerleaders cheered the whole time helping to keep spirits up the entire night.  

Many people came out to support the Sharks on Monday. The cheerleaders held a pep rally earlier that day in 6th period where the teachers played game and they did the annual spirit stick contest for the school which got the CKS fans excited for Monday’s games.
