While several PHS students will be home for the holidays, Ram Varsity athletes will be in action all throughout winter break.

The boys basketball team will be traveling to North Daviess to play in the Bobcat Basketball Tourney, lasting from Wednesday, December 21 to Friday, December 23. This is the second year the Rams have competed in this tourney after playing in Springs Valley’s winter tournament in previous years.

“It is one of the best tournaments in the state. People come from all over to watch games over the threeday span. There are many fans, coaches, and colleges that will travel to North Daviess to get a glimpse of all the action,” said Head Coach Dusty Cole.

Eight teams will be competing for a win, many of which are ranked in their respective classes of 1A, 2A and 3A. This includes #4 in 1A: Evansville Christian, #2 in 2A: Fort Wayne Blackhawk Christian and the host, #2 in 3A: North Daviess.

The wrestling team will also attend a tournament during winter break. The Rams will travel to Madison High School in the Cub Classic on Wednesday, December 28 and Thursday, December 29. Seven teams will compete at the event.

“I expect if we work hard, we will get good results, but I expect for us to learn a lot from that meet, too,” said Head Coach JD Emerick.

The Lady Rams basketball team will also be traveling to Eastern Greene to play in the Toby Yoho Classic on Thursday, December 29 and Friday, December 30.

Twelve teams will be at the tournament this year. Brownstown, Eastern Greene, and sectional opponent North Knox will be the toughest obstacles for the Lady Rams.

“The first goal will be to win it. With the type of competition in this tournament, I think winning it would definitely set us up well for the second half of the season. I hope no matter what we play well and continue to improve,” said Head Coach Donovan Crews.
