The Center-Stanton Wildcats knew that advancing to the Region 5 tournament was going to be hard because they were the lowest seed entering the District 10 tournament.
The Wildcats participated in the McLean County Shootout last weekend, losing two games. Cole Helmers and the Wildcats’ offense will try to top the 50-point mark for the first time this season on Friday against Garrison in a varsity double-header. The varsity girls will play first at 6:30 and the varsity boys will follow after.
The Center-Stanton Wildcats entered the year knowing that they would have to figure out a way to replace most of their senior starters from the 2013-14 basketball season. The Wildcats didn’t find a way last week and fell on the road twice.
The Center-Stanton Wildcats wanted to make a move near the top of Region 5 this season and have their name mentioned as a team that could challenge for a state tournament spot. The Wildcats almost got there this year taking third place at the Region 5 tournament in a series of regular season rematches.
