The Charleston boys and girls varsity teams opened their Tiger Center home schedule Tuesday night with victories over the Scranton Rockets. The Lady Tigers defeated Scranton 40-23, and the Tigers boys team won 47-42.
On a night when both teams appeared to have early season issues that many high school teams have at the start of the season, both Tigers teams showed their potential for the upcoming season.
The Lady Tigers are incorporating a few players from the Charleston volleyball team, and the boys team is awaiting a few from the football team that is currently in the state playoffs. Once both teams are at full strength and have the rest of November and all of December to play together, Charleston should be strong contenders in the upcoming conference season.
The Lady Tigers junior varsity and varsity girls teams will host Pea Ridge at Tiger Center on November 19. Both the Tigers and Lady Tigers will play in the Scranton Invitational Tournament December 2-7.
