The Cowboys will get an immediate chance to shake their tough, 50-45 loss against the Duncanville Panthers on Tuesday, as they play in their second tournament of the season on Thursday.

The tournament will be hosted by Cedar Hill and will last through Saturday. Players will miss each of the next two days at school to participate in the event.

 Coppell will be looking to win it all at Cedar Hill after placing second in the Avery Air Invitational Tournament, which took place Nov. 26-28. The Cowboys have started the season strong with a 5-3 record, including the loss against Baylor recruit Perry Jones and Duncanville on Tuesday.

One difference between the Cowboys first tournament and this one is that seniors Nic Johnston and Taylor Goebel will be playing this weekend. Neither played in the Avery Air Invitational Tournament last month, as they were participating in the Cowboys football playoff run.

In addition to the Cedar Hill Tournament this weekend, the JV Cowboys will be playing in a tournament hosted by Grapevine High School.
