Michael Roach Classic gives Southern Lab, Madison Prep a reason to reunite Thursday night
Per The Advocate
Madison Prep and Southern Lab did not need a special reason to get together. But a Thursday game dubbed the Michael Roach Classic just adds a little something to the meeting.
"Over the years, I've had the chance to get to know coach Roach and even matched wits with him a couple of times on the college level," Southern Lab coach Darrell Asberry said. "I think it's great that we get to honor him, since he coached at both schools. And we get to play a quality opponent."
Game will be played at Southern's A.W. Mumford Stadium for top-ranked Southern Lab (1-0), of Class 1A, and 3A MPA (0-1). It is one of three Thursday games. Mentorship Academy (0-1) hosts Istrouma (0-1) at Memorial Stadium, while The Dunham School (1-0) hosts Thrive Academy. All games begin at 7 p.m.
