Newton High eyes 2003

By By Ryan Satcher / staff writer

A tough non-division schedule will either make or break the 2003 football season for the Newton High Tigers.
The Tigers face four tough non-division games to start off the year.
Newton begins the season with a matchup at home against former NHS head coach Brad Peterson and the Forest Bearcats.
The Tigers then travel to face a very competitive Ackerman team on the road. Newton then returns home to face Bay Springs on Sept. 12 and Enterprise the following week.
Newton also has a tough matchup with non-division foe West Lauderdale on the road later in the season (Oct. 10).
The key for the Tigers during the early part of the season will be avoiding injuries. Newton High will need to stay healthy through the first four games to be ready for district play when it begins on Sept. 26.
Newton gets district play underway at Kemper County. The Tigers will travel to play Philadelphia the following week in another district game.
After the game with West Lauderdale, Newton will return home to a district matchup with William Sullivan.
Lake, which moves up from 1A and replaces Scott Central in the district, will be Newton's opponent on Oct. 24 and the Tigers will conclude the regular season with a home game against Clarkdale on Oct. 31.
Newton High will begin every game except the matchups with Kemper County and Lake at 7 p.m. The games against the Wildcats and Hornets will start at 7:30 p.m.
