The only way to get better is to take on the best. The Wildcats took to the court against the top ranked Beulah Miners Jan. 7. Last time the two teams met Beulah won by 58 points, 84-26. This time things were different early but ended with the same result.
Last week the Wildcats started their 2012-2013 boys varsity basketball season. The first game of the season was a Dec. 4 game against Standing Rock. The Wildcats lost their season opener but were able to collect their first win of the season at the McLean County tournament.
The Wildcats opened the match with two victories but lost three sets in a row. The Wildcats will face off against the loser of Turtle Lake-Mercer-McClusky and Wilton-Wing Thursday, Nov. 1. The winner of the Thursday match will advance to the regional tournament.
Most people like to leave things better than they found them or at least with a taste of success. Brett Eckert did just that. Eckert turned in his resignation as the head coach of the Center-Stanton Wildcats football team after the conclusion of the season almost two weeks ago.
There’s roughly a month left in the regular season and the Center-Stanton Wildcats are playing better as each week passes. The Wildcats won an early season match with Shiloh Christian that proved they were a team to watch in Region 5, but have recently proven the early season victory wasn’t a fluke.
