Preston, Tucker County Clash In 2nd Annual Meet The Knights Event

KINGWOOD -

On Saturday night, the Preston Knights took on Tucker County in a football scrimmage. It was the marquee event during the second annual Meet the Knights at Preston High.

Last year, then new head coach, Jonathan Tennant, started the event to get more public recognition for each of the school's sports team.

Before the game each fall sports team was on hand, and participated in a parade around the Knights' multi-sport practice field.

Athletic Director Mike Contic said he was happy to see the community come out and support the teams.

"We saw a lot of good support. A lot of parents are here, a lot of high school kids are here. So we think it's a good supportive event," he said. "You know it's not a great economic area right now, and it's down a bit right now economically, but other than that you can get a lot of support out of these people," he said.

The events started Saturday morning when both of Preston High's soccer teams took on Hedgesville in a pair of scrimmages.
