Wildcats News · Basketball Teams to a Great Start


The 2021 basketball season finally kicked off this week as both the Wildcats and the Ladycats tipped (flipped) off their seasons.

The Ladycats started things off by picking up a 57-45 victory over Western Hills on Monday. The girls jumped out to an early lead and never looked. Ella White led the way with 32 points and 6 rebounds. Micha Magruder chipped in with 9 points, and Ashlyn Tingle dominated the glass with 13 rebounds.

The Wildcats followed up with their first win over Anderson County since 1989. The game was a back and forth thriller with several ties and lead changes. Sam Royalty knocked down a short jumper off Will Peyton’s inbound pass as time expired to give the Wildcats a 68-67 victory. Trevor Hardin led the way with 18 points and 15 rebounds. Kevin Wix added 18, Brandon Graves added 14, and Will Peyton and Sam Royalty contributed 8 points apiece.
