An early loss to Troy Athens means some tough love for the Colts as they shoot for a second consecutive Oakland Activities Association White title.
The first Troy High School varsity boys basketball practice after a 62-61 loss on Friday to rival Athens wasn’t an easy one. Monday, Colts head coach Gary Fralick let his team know he wasn’t happy with its performance in its first loss to Athens and told the squad they needed some “tough love." He also extended practice to include a film session. “They were a good team, I give Athens credit, but we still should’ve beat ’em,” Fralick said. He was particularly upset that his team gave up more than 60 points on defense, including 28 points to Athens senior Marcarius Coakley. Coakley hit a key 3-pointer late in the game to tie it 60-60. “Can’t give up 62 points every game and expect to win,” Fralick said. “It’s early, but we have to work on …

'Lend Me a Tenor' will run Friday and Saturday; tickets are still available.
Troy Athens Theatre Company decided to go in a different direction for their fall play this year and will be tackling a comedy, which will debut Friday night. Lend Me a Tenor is the "really funny’" play that the theater group decided to undertake this year. According to Sarah Zarbaugh, 17-year-old senior at Troy Athens High School playing the part of Diana, this will be the first year since she has been a part of the theater program that the group dropped the dramatic plays, and went for something new. Last year the group performed The Crucible and the year before did A Christmas Carol. “I like how this is a lot different. We are able to enjoy ourselves a lot and having us enjoy ourselves makes the play even better,” Zarbaugh said. The …

The Red Hawks hope to keep their momentum as they compete at the state level this Saturday and in a national competition next week.
After setting a school record Saturday at the Lakeland Invitational, Troy Athens High School marching band members are setting their sights on capping off a successful season with good scores at the last competitions of the year – state and nationals. The band snagged third place and scored 84.64 points at Saturday's invitational, breaking the school’s record of 83.6 points out of 100 in a band competition.
