Tournament teams include CHESS, Trenton, White Oak, Sulphur Springs JV, Miller Grove, Boyd JV, Cooper, Ector and Saltillo.


The Wildcats’ basketball team, ranked #13 in the state and 5-0 so far this season, open play Thursday in the three-day Curtis Culwell Invitational in Garland. The Wildcats play Garland Lakeview Centennial Thursday at 3:30 p.m. in the Garland Naaman Forest Gym. Wildcats Basketball Coach Clark Cipoletta called Lakeview Centennial very athletic and scrappy. He added they would try to put pressure on the Wildcats. Coach Cipoletta said one of the Lakeview Centennial players was an exceptional scorer. If the Wildcats win, they will play again Friday at 5:30 p.m. in the Curtis Culwell Center against the winner of the Richardson J.J. Pearce and Garland game. If the Wildcats lose Thursday, they will play Friday at 11:30 a.m. in the Curtis Culwell Center against the loser of the J.J. Pearce and Garland game.


The Lady Cats’ basketball team will be hoping for some bounce back wins Thursday in the Winnsboro Hoopfest after suffering their first defeat of the season Tuesday night in Idabel, Oklahoma. The Lady Cats play two pool play games Thursday at the three-day Winnsboro Hoopfest. The Lady Cats take on Gilmer Thursday at 2:40 p.m. in the Winnsboro High School Gym. Later Thursday they have a rematch with Emory Rains at 5:20 p.m. in the Winnsboro Junior High Gym. The Lady Cats opened the regular season with a road win at Emory Rains back on November 11. The Lady Cats come into the tournament ranked #18 in the state and 4-1 so far this season.
