Tullahoma too much for Lady Champs to handle (11/23/14)

Up-tempo Champs pull past Vikings (11/19/14)
Robbie Davis' Community Vikings entered Tuesday night's game without three impact players in Darian Pride, Braden Simmons and Nathan Smith. Despite being short-handed and getting a lot of minutes from underclassmen, the Vikings stood tall for the better part of Tuesday's game against in-county rival Cascade...
Viqueens blast Cascade (11/19/14)
The Community Viqueens (2-2) just had too much firepower for the Cascade Lady Champions (0-3) to slow down in Tuesday's non-district rivalry clash. The Viqueens were led by junior Sarah Pierce's game-high 29 points and hit double figures in each quarter in the 74-38 romp over the Lady Champions...
Improvements show for Champs in blowout win over Central Magnet (11/16/14)
MURFREESBORO -- In Tuesday's opener against MTCS, the Cascade Champions (2-0) struggled to find any momentum early on. Not the case in Friday's showdown with Central Magnet School.

Powerful Heritage ends Champs' year (11/09/14)
WHITE HOUSE -- An explosive offense coupled with big plays by the White House-Heritage Patriots was too much for the Cascade Champions to overcome Friday night as the Patriots won 47-7 in the first round of the Class 3A state playoffs. The loss ended the season for Cascade (4-7) and was the last game for 13 Champion seniors...
READY TO SURPRISE; Tough slate prepared Champs for playoffs (11/06/14)
The Cascade Champions could be the most unlikely and improbable team to earn a berth in the TSSAA Class 3A state playoffs. Finishing the regular season with a 4-6 overall record, it might be simple to dismiss the Champions on that record alone. But on closer inspection, the Champions have faced one of the most brutal and grueling schedules of anyone in the state, with nine opponents in the regular season qualifying for postseason berths...
Champs settle down after CPA run (11/02/14)
There's not much scarier than facing the No. 2 CPA Lions (10-0, 5-0 12-AA) on Halloween night. Though Jake Tyre's team was out-gunned early, the Champions (4-6, 0-5 12-AA) regained some composure in the final three quarters and posted a very respectable score against the talented Lions, 57-31...
No. 1 CPA challenges Champs on senior night (10/30/14)

Approaching Friday night, Champion coach Jake Tyre says his team is going into it with the mindset it's just another game on the schedule...
Parker's first catch wins game for Champs (10/26/14)
Junior Brady Parker hadn't caught a pass all season--until Friday night. But the one catch he made on Friday night might be the biggest catch anyone in a Champion uniform has made all year. On fourth and long with 1:28 to go, the Champions (4-5) were trailing the Jo Byrns Red Devils (3-6), 12-7...
Champions must win to reach playoffs (10/23/14)
It's been nearly a month since the Cascade Champions claimed their last victory. With just two weeks left in the 2014 season, the Champions need to knock off the Jo Byrns Red Devils on Friday night in order to keep their playoff chances alive. "It's huge for playoffs and for the kids' morale. If we win Friday it puts us in a position to make the playoffs," said Champion coach Jake Tyre...

Rested Champs are healthy again (10/16/14)
After falling to Marshall County, 50-19, two weeks ago, the Cascade Champions were tired, battered and bruised. Coming at a prime time in the schedule, last week's bye week for the Champions (3-4, 0-3 12-AA) was just what the doctor ordered, according to head coach Jake Tyre...
Rebelettes hand Cascade 2-0 loss (10/08/14)
The Franklin County Rebelettes spoiled senior night for the Cascade Lady Champions on Thursday with a 2-0 win. A pair of goals by Franklin County juniors Cheyenne Christian and Summer Stines proved to be enough to lift the visitors to the win. After a scoreless first half, Stines broke through with 26:15 left in regulation, with Christian adding the insurance goal barely 30 seconds later...
Marshall Co. too powerful for Champs (10/05/14)
LEWISBURG -- Going into Friday night's District 12-AA game at Marshall County, Cascade coach Jake Tyre knew his team would be put to their toughest task of the season--playing one of the hottest 4A teams in the state. While the effort was here for a full four quarters, Cascade (3-4, 0-3 12-AA) just couldn't overcome the sheer athleticism of the Tigers (6-1, 3-0 12-AA) and fell 50-19...

Champs expecting 'slugfest' (09/25/14)
There's a deep-seeded rivalry between the Cascade Champions (2-3) and the Moore County Raiders (3-2). As former-district rivals, Champion coach Jake Tyre expects Friday night's game to live up to the rivalry of old. "It's going to be a good game. It's going to be a slugfest. This is probably our longest rivalry. They're a pretty good team. It's going to be a hard fought game," Tyre said...
