Blackman traveled to the outskirts of Memphis for the always competitive Blackhorse Invitational at Houston High School.   This year’s tournament fielded 21 teams from 4 states.   With 4 freshman and no seniors, the Blaze took 4th overall in the tournament.   #1. Christian Brothers, TN   #2. Brother Martin, LA   #3. Duncan, OK   #4. Blackman, TN.

Last year, Blackman was 6th so solid improvement this time!   This is one of the toughest individual tournaments in the state.
