After an extended break and a short work week for most dis- trict employees, this week's weather looks promising. The inclement weather caused some cancellations and rescheduling for our basketball programs this past week; however, several games remained to whet the appetite. Our boys' basketball pro- gram, after a 04 start, went 4-6 over the break to im- prove theh- record to 4-10. Tough losses to Boyd, Flem- hag and Rowan in the last ten days illustrated the competi- tive level of the 16th Region. On Wednesday, the 'Cats Iraveled to Morehead for a 61st District game with the fldnts. The 'Cats managed to stay competitive for the first three quarters before Rowan County dosed out a huge 4th quarter to win go- hag away, 8448. Blake Maze led the Wildcats with 16 points and Caden Messer hit double digits as well, scoring 10. On Friday, the Wildcats hosted Sayre from Lexing- ton. In a well-played game that featured only nine turnovers by the 'Cats, the Spartans came away with a 65-60 victory. Once again the Wildcats were led in scoring by Blake Maze who scored 17. Mac Becraft chipped in 12, while Caden Messer and Hunter Johnson added 10 and 9 respectively. The Wildcats picked up their first district win of the season on Saturday night when Menifee came to town for a boy-girl basketball dou- ble-header.

Cling- ing to a one-point lead with less than thirty seconds re- maining, sophomore guard Caden Messer hit four free- throws to seal the victory. Blake Maze and Mac Becraft scored 19 and 11. With the win, the Wildcats improved their season record to 5-12. The LadyCats had no such drama in their 65-46 win over their Menifee County coun- ter-parts in the second game of the night. In fact, buoyed by three straight three-point- ers by Megan Leach in the second quarter, the team from Bath County cruised to a 16 point half-time lead. The lead would stretch to 33 in the third quarter be- fore Men[fee closed the gap in the final quarter. Sarah Price led the LadyCats in a balanced scorin attack with 13 points. Taylor Rog- ers added 10, while Megan Leach finished with 9. Jas- mine Flowers and Haleigh Porter chipped in with 8 and 7 respectively. On Thursday, the LadyCats had headed west on 1-64 to play Dunbar, one of the top-ranked teams in the tough llth Region. After staying close through three quarters, the Lady- Cats watched Dunbar reel off twelve straight points to start the final stanza and put the game away. Sarah Price played well in the losing ef- fort, scoring 20 points and pulling down 14 rebounds. Starting play this week, the LadyCats' record stands at 9 wins and 3 losses.
