Wildcats Soccer Coach Andy Holt is ready for the regular season to start so he can see his team in action for real. Their scrimmages are over. The Wildcats lost to Royse City, 1-0 last Thursday afternoon. Then came the annual Alumni Scrimmage this past Saturday. At Royse City, Coach Holt said he saw a lot of good things along with some things that need to be addressed again. He did some tweaking during the Alumni Scrimmage. Coach Holt said this year’s Wildcats team has a lot of potential. The Wildcats open the regular season at a three-day Forney tournament beginning Thursday. The Wildcats will match up with Carrollton Newman-Smith, Royse City, Forney and College Station the first two days.
Lady Cats Soccer Coach Jesus Deleon calls his team this year one of the smartest and the deepest he has coached. They are also young and talented. Coach Deleon says there is very little difference in his #1 player and #18. During scrimmage season, the Lady Cats have blitzed John Tyler at Rose Stadium, 4-0 and Pleasant Grove here in town at the High School Track Soccer Field, 4-0. Coach Deleon says his sophomores are scoring goals. The team has one last scrimmage before the regular season begins. A Tuesday night scrimmage has been moved to the artificial turf at Paris due to field conditions at Gerald Prim Stadium. The JV plays at 5:30 p.m. and the Varsity at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Then the Lady Cats open the regular season at a three-day Terrell tournament starting Thursday. Opponents Thursday and Friday include Lindale, Huntsville, Terrell and Dallas Conrad.
