MANSFIELD, OH - The Mansfield Senior Tygers are off to an impressive 2-1 start after defeating Canadian power St. Michael College School and Lexington.

"I think that our effort and energy have been pretty good," said head coach Marquis Sykes. "Overall, our spirit has been where we've liked it to be."

The Lexington victory could be a positive indicator that this team can compete in and win close games. Something they were unable to do last season.

"I hope that it shows our guys that we are capable of winning," said Sykes. "We fought and clawed and stayed in the basketball game and were able to make a couple plays down the stretch to come out with the win so, hopefully, it just does what we need for it to do for our psyche to show our guys that we can win these close games."

The Tygers have one game this weekend; An OCC matchup at home against 3-0 West Holmes.
