SCR-I topped the 40-point plateau yet again, besting Schuyler County 44-9 to improve to 3-1 behind 19 points from Orton and 10 points from Jade Holt.

The Midgets gave SCR-I its closest game during the streak, with the Tigers escaping with a 30-25 win on November 19th. Caleb Doubet led the way with a barrage of three pointers. Zach Doubet added six points in the win.

North Shelby was the next to fall to SCR-I, dropping a November 22nd contest by a final margin of 32-17 in a game that saw nine different Tigers get into the scorebook.

Zach Curry poured in a season-high 13 points to lead the Tigers to a 53-25 win over Knox County to make the team 7-1. Caleb Doubet added 10 points and Jade Holt finished with nine.
