LaSalle Tigers have had their struggles

By Greg Jones

The Tigers have gotten off to a rocky start this season. The Tigers have played hard every game and never just threw in the towel. The Tigers are 0-4 in district play and have six games left to right the ship.
 
These guys are practicing hard to make things better for the rest of this season. The season’s bright spot has been the play of the freshman class that came in from the jr high. They have sparked the offense at times to keep the Tigers in every game.
