The Charles Wright Tarriers competed in the Emerald Ridge Jamboree. CWA was the lone 1A school competing in this event. The Tarriers finished the day with a 6-0 record knocking off quality 3A and 4A programs in the jamboree. The Tarriers look to be a team that will be a force in the 1A this season.
