Wildcat Basketball Season is a Wrap

 

The Wildcats traveled to play the Dragons of St. George for the final game of the season on Thursday, December 13. The 7th grade game was a barn burner from the opening tip! Action was back and forth the entire evening with 17-14 after the first; 31-29 at the half, and 39-38 after the third. Julian D. went for a shot to knot it with a 3-point at the buzzer, but it caromed off the rim, and the Cats fell 51-48. Ryan J. led the team with 15 pts.; and Julian added 13 pts. The 7th Grade A Team's season record: 4-2.


In the 8th grade game (pictured), Wildcats slayed the Dragons 41-29. Alex P. led the Cats with 8 pts., while Tristin T., Noah B., Nathaniel S. and Henry R. all chipped in with 6pts. The 8th Grade A Team's season record: 5-1.
