HIGH SCHOOL BOYS BASKETBALL ON A WINNING STREAK  

The Wildcats have continued their winning streak to 5 by beating Arroyo Pacific last Thursday at home.  The Wildcats (8-1), led by the seniors,  routed Pacific  23 to 12. Baker and Laux made their prescence known downlow by dominating the rebounds while  Bush and McCormick's pressure defense caused 12 turnovers. Every wildcat player contributed with great shots and good pressure defense. This Thursday the Wildcats look to remain unbeaten in the League of Fellowship as they take on rival ACA at ACA. Stay tuned for homecoming game info.

 

Scoreboard 

 

MIDDLE SCHOOL BOYS BASKETBALL 

Our middle school boys basketball team played Grace Lutheran School on February 8.  The team defense highlighted a 22-11 victory.  The coach for Grace Lutheran was overheard telling his team, "to keep trying, they are playing great defense."  Elijah Rascon led the team in scoring, often breaking down the defense with drives through the middle.   

Keep it going Wildcats!
