Ladycats and Wildcats Basketball have been very busy this season. They recently hosted Bishop McGuinness at home then traveled to Tulsa Memorial and Guymon in back to back road games.

Coach Jody Fincher stated about the Ladycats, “I’ve been really happy about the team’s play this week. We have locked in at both ends of the floor and we are playing well together.” He also stated, “Baylee (Fincher) became a member of the 1000 pt club on Friday,” in the Tulsa Memorial game.

Coach Ivan McFarlin had stated before the McGuinness game, “I feel that the basketball team is learning to play together a little bit better. Our boys have demonstrated the Wildcat Way and we will continue to get better for our game against Bishop McGuinness. I cant wait for the opportuntity to play in front of our fans. Let’s get to work!!!” After the games, he was happy with his team’s play, “First of all, I thought the guys played very well against two quality opponents in Tulsa Memorial and Guymon. Even though the record was 1-1, these guys demonstrated what Wildcat basketball is all about. We have a tough task against a good Enid team and we are prepared for this challenge at 8pm Thursday at the Stride Center in Enid. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and good luck to our girls as they travel to their tournament in Arkansas. Go Wildcats!!” The Wildcats lost a tough game Thursday night, 67-66 to Enid in the Enid Tournament. They won today, 58-38, over U.S. Grant. They play Saturday at 5:00.

The Ladycats won 76-29 over Tulsa Memorial and 62-51 over Guymon. They won the first game in Alma, Arkansas Airedale Classic over Elkins, 52-43. They play Saturday at 3:30.
