Cross Country Finds (Muddy) Footing

On September 27, the Wildcats participated in a British style cross country meet when they headed to Seguin with all the rain and the mud. That didn't stop Chaz B. who turned in a 13:09 (23 out of 260) , even when wearing a cast. His twin, Noah, finished at 13:39 (33 out of 260). Henry R. finished 43rd with his PB 13:52. Patrick S. ran 13:59 and Christopher C. closed out the top 50 with a 14:04. The conditions were less than ideal, but the kids enjoyed running through the mud and the muck. The Cats finished 11th out of the 25 teams entered in the field of 260 runners. 


Wildcats Snag the Win vs. Poe
On September 27, the Wildcats went up against Poe. In the Blue game, The Cats lost the toss and kick. The Tigers took the kick off all the way back, and before you could get comfortable in your chair, it was 7-0. In the 2nd quarter, the Cats put together a nice drive, and on the 4th and 5th, Jackson D., under duress, heaveed a scintillating spiral. On the other end, Forrest R. climbed the imaginary ladder and snagged the spiral. The Cats answered the Tiger TD, and Miles "golden toe" W. kicked the extra point, making it 8-7 Cats. After the half, the clock ran out on the Tigers, and we had a huge Cat win, 16-14. The Blue team now stands at 2-3, and face Del-Rio @ St. Mary's Hall 10/4.
