Tiger Sharks raise record to 4-1

Last Saturday’s trip to Sneads was a gut-check for the Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School boys’ basketball team.

After being drilled 66-37 at home by Springfield Rutherford the night before, the Tiger Sharks (4-1) rebounded with a 55-41 victory over Sneads.

“That was a character win for us,” said Port St. Joe coach Derek Kurnitsky. “I think we are better than we played against Rutherford. It just wasn’t our night. But that was big to go on the road up to Sneads and win.

“We are off to a good start,” Kurnitsky said. “We have a long way to go. We have had only four practices with all our players.”

The Tiger Sharks host South Walton Friday night and are at Franklin County on Saturday.

The past week began with a 63-40 win over host Wewahitchka.

The Tiger Sharks were led by T.J. Williams who scored a game-high 26 points.
