Coffee County moves to 5-0 on the young season with the win. The Lady Raiders made quick work of everyone in the Whitwell tournament, throttling North Jackson (Alabama) 85-14 and host Whitwell 67-40.

The Lady Raiders will head right back to East Tennessee after the Thanksgiving holiday for two very tough games.

They will take on York Institute at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25 at Bradley Central – a York team that beat Warren County by 20 points last weekend. That game will be broadcast live on Thunder Radio (107.9 FM, 1320 AM, Manchester Go App and Thunder1320.com). The Lady Raiders will turn around and play McMinn County Saturday at Bradley Central – a 1:30 p.m. Central start. McMinn County eliminated CHS from postseason play last year.
