Lions Win 3rd Place, Lionettes Participate In 5th Place Game Monday

The Cannon County Lions Boys Basketball team took third place over the weekend at the Sonic Shootout in Sparta at White County High School.  After dropping a game to the eventual tournament champion Riverdale Warriors, the Lions drew the Glencliff Colts out of Nashville.  Glencliff led most of the game Saturday night, but Cannon grabbed the lead on a run to start the fourth quarter and took control of the game winning 65-55.  Cory Henley led all scorers with 18.  Tanner Larson and Josh Reuhlan netted 14 each.  Larson and Henley were named to the all tournament team.  Cannon ends the 2013 year 16-3 with their next game Friday January 3rd at Warren County in McMinnville. A day after their biggest loss of the year by 15 points to West Springfield in the Bulldog Bash Tournament at Chantilly High School in Chantilly Virginia, the Cannon County Lionettes took out their frustrations on the Lady Vikings of Woodbridge High School out of Virginia by scoring their largest points of the season.  The Lionettes improved their record to 16-2 with a 94-36 win over the Virginia team.  Cannon County will close out the tournament this morning with a game against the Roland Park Country Reds out of Baltimore Maryland.  Game time will be at 9:45 this morning.  WBRY AM/1540-FM/96.7 will have the live broadcast of the game.  The game will also be streamed live on our website at and through the TuneIn Radio app on Smartphones and Tablets via WBRY
