August 24, 2020 vs. Logansport

8th Grade Recap:

The Blue Devils kicked-off their first home game at 10am on Saturday; with the 8th grade playing first. It was a back-and-forth affair through the first half. Just before the half, the Berries were buried deep in Blue Devils territory on a 4th and forever. However, they were able to convert a reverse for a touchdown. The second half brought much of the same. The Blue Devils took a lead, only to give it up shortly after. The final important play of the game was a pick-6 for the Berries to secure the win. The Blue Devils played well, but a handful of bad plays determined this one.


7th Grade Recep:

The 7th grade group, behind a feisty defensive line led by William Wolford, put it to the Berries early and often. Logansport could not handle the pressure and, aside from an athletic quarterback, couldn't establish any momentum. The Blue Devils offense, led by Izayah Mahaney, win big 36-20.


Next Game: Wednesday September 2nd vs. Elwood(7th)/Sheridan(8th) (kickoff at 5:30pm)

The volleyball teams traveled to Eastern Middle School for their first event of the season last Tuesday. The teams split with the Comets. The Blue Team secured the win, while the White Team fell short.


From Coach Lela Crawford:

The white team played its first match on Tuesday. We lost in two sets, but played hard and learned a lot! Hollyn Wilson played really well. She took the skills we learned in practice and carried them over to the game. I am very proud of all the Lady Devils on the Blue and White Teams.


From Coach Laurie Crawford:

TMS Blue Team Volleyball had their first game on August 25th against the Eastern Comets. Tipton brought home a win! Tipton won the first match 25-18 and the second match 25-4. Coach Crawford was amazed with how well they played. "Team play was outstanding and I can't wait to see their improvement every game", she said.
