It was a unique situation for Creek Wood basketball, to be sure. After Creek Wood’s basketball programs hosted Hickman County for the District 11AA Basketball Tournament Quarterfinals on back-to-back nights, the Lady Red Hawks hosted Marshall County for the Region 6AA Tournament Quarterfinals on Friday before the boys traveled to Marshall County on Saturday. The Tigerettes headed up to Charlotte with a 13-14 overall record and a fourth place finish in the District 12AA Tournament, and after a 29-21 loss to Page in the consolation game, they knew what their path to victory was–stall ball. After all, they were down to 8 players on theRead More →

Dickson County racked up their fifth consecutive district tournament championship Saturday night with a 53-41 win of Centennial. The win gives the Lady Cougars a fourth straight District 11AAA title rivaling Lady Cougar softball for district dominance. On the court the result was seldom in doubt once the ball was in the air. Dickson jumped out to a 9-1 lead in the first quarter and ballooned the margin out to 19-6 at the end of the quarter. Centennial was slowed by an injury to Ashleigh Hardin, their starting center, and Dickson exploited the advantage to its fullest, repeatedly attacking the paint with Kailey Rosenbaum.

The 7th seed Hickman County Bulldogs headed up to Creek Wood for a do-or-die game on Wednesday night, as the 2nd-seeded Red Hawks only needed to beat Hickman County for the third straight time this season to guarantee a spot in the Region Tournament next week. The Bulldogs weren’t ready to roll over so easily, and Creek Wood needed 2 overtime periods and a late defensive stand to turn away the visitors and keep their season going. Creek Wood worked out to a 7-4 edge after a low-scoring first quarter, and a 22-20 lead at the half. Hickman County won the second quarter by aRead More →

In their final tuneups before the District 11-AA Basketball Tournament opens next week, the Creek Wood Red Hawks and Lady Red Hawks played host to Sycamore for Senior Night, to make up a snowed out game from earlier in the season.

The Sycamore girls started off hot as Camryn Denney had 5 points including a basket-and-one in a 12-10 first quarter for the Lady War Eagles. Taylor Moore,Read More →

The Creek Wood basketball teams welcomed East Hickman to the hill on Highway 47 Tuesday night for a pair of important wins. The home side won both game, in very different ways and with very different results. The Lady Red Hawks had lost to East earlier in the year, and split with Lewis County. The Lady Eagles upset Lewis County last week, meaning that the winner of Tuesday night’s game would wind up in a first-place tie with the Lady Panthers. Creek Wood played well early in a low scoring affair, but Olivia Martin went off for 7 points in a 10-4 Lady Eagle secondRead More →

The Creek Wood basketball squads split a district doubleheader Tuesday night at Waverly Central, as the girls won but the boys lost. The Lady Red Hawks were likely a heavy favorite over a Waverly side they blew out earlier in the season in Charlotte, but head coach John Tidwell apparently coached up the Tigerettes well in the interim. Waverly Central hung with Creek Wood throughout, but the visitors held on for a 10 point win and a season sweep. Alanna Brooks had 5 points in the first as Waverly Central took the opening frame 12-11. Julie Nunnemaker came off the bench in the first andRead More →
