Two seasons removed from an appearance in the TSSAA Class Double A state championship basketball game, the Macon County Lady Tigers are still trying to rebuild a program that saw them make a couple of trips to Murfreesboro in two out of the last four years.  The Lady Tigers won just 8 games last year and are 2-6 in this year’s campaign.  The Lady Tigers have lost 5 in a row and are 0-1 in District play as Livingston beat them in Livingston Friday 72-38.  The Cannon County Lionettes rebounded Saturday from a lost to Central the night before by beating Coffee County 55-31.  The Lionettes are 7-1 overall and 0-1 in district play  These two teams will square off tonight in Lafayette as both teams will try to keep from starting 0-2 in the district standings. The Macon County boys basketball teams gave District 8-AA notice that they intend to play at the top of the standings.  Opening district play against Livingston in Livingston, the Macon County team gave the Wildcats their first loss of the season winning in overtime 74-71.  They face the Lions boys basketball team riding a 3 game winning streak into the contest.
