Tenaha Sweeps Varsity Titles at District


Yesterday in New Summerfield, Coach Lauri Sisk and the Tenaha High School

and Junior High Cross Country teams competed in the District 22-2A District

Meet.  The day and the course would be painted maroon as Tenaha won three

out of the four district team titles that were up for grabs.  For the first

time ever, Tenaha is home to the Varsity Boys and Girls District Cross

Country Champions.  Also, the Tenaha Junior High Boys team ran their way to

the Junior High Championship as well. 


Congratulations to Coach Sisk and all the runners who have logged the many

tough and hot miles in the early morning and afternoon.  Next up for Tiger

XC is the Regional Meet at Sam Houston State on Saturday, October 31 for a

chance to advance to State!


 Tigers Cap Festive Homecoming Day with 47-13 District Win


After slugging through the brutal non-district slate, Coach Craig Horn and

the Tenaha Tigers began the 2nd season by opening up District 11-2A play

against the previously 4-1 Maud Cardinals.  After giving up an early score

to the Cardinals, the young Tigers found that “old Tiger swagger” and put

together a barrage of big plays, big hits, and fast play.  After taking a

20-6 lead into halftime, Tenaha exploded for two big TD passes in the 3rd

quarter and two additional long runs to cap off a successful district

opening 47-13 win in front of a large, happy, and excited Tenaha Homecoming

crowd.  At 1-0, the Tigers are off this week to prepare for Shelby County

rival Timpson.  Next Friday’s game at Tiger Stadium will begin at 7:30 PM

and will no doubt have large implications in the District Championship race.


The Best Homecoming Tradition in Texas


Beautiful weather, great floats, big crowds, happy faces, great kids, one

train, and a Tiger win is the best way to describe another great Homecoming

week in Tenaha.  This year’s edition certainly did not disappoint.  In fact,

the Tenaha Homecoming reputation even lured a writer from the Dallas Morning

News who is writing a book about Texas Football Traditions to include the

Tenaha Homecoming among those he writes about. 


Congratulations to Rebekkah Bridges, this year’s Homecoming Queen as well as

Jakedrick Roundtree, this year’s king.  Also, thank you to all who

contributed to making the Tenaha Homecoming what it is.  A special thanks to

Mrs. Jernigan and the Tiger Booster Club for putting on the Hamburger Lunch.

It was great to see so many happy faces in Tenaha!!


Saturday Marks the Beginning of the State Contest Quest


This Saturday, the Sweepstakes acclaimed Roarin’ Band from Tigerland will

set out to accomplish the unthinkable.  That is to attempt to qualify for

the State Marching Contest in just the second year of transitioning from

military to corps style  marching.  Second year director Brian Sours says

“It’s the toughest Region in the state” remarking about the quality of depth

of the Tigers competition.  Top notch bands from Shelbyville, Carlisle,

Beckville, Timpson, and San Augustine will compete among others to make 1st

Division this Saturday at Stephen F. Austin for the right to advance to Area

competition next week (also at SFA).  Awaiting the qualifiers from this

Saturday are Clarksville and Union Grove who boasts the top bands from the

Northern part of the Area.  It won’t be easy, but Mr. Sours expects the

Tiger band “to give it its best shot.”


Tenaha will perform at 11:30 AM Saturday just ahead of the San Augustine



Something New!!!!!
