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.
The Center-Stanton Wildcats ended District 10 play with a perfect 5-0 record last week. The Wildcats locked themselves in as the No. 1 seed for the District 10 tournament, which will start Nov. 3 and be hosted by Wilton. Earning a perfect District 10 record meant staying assertive and aggressive against Washburn, a team with a losing district record. The Wildcats stayed focused and won on the road three sets to none.
