Both the Wildcats and Lady Cats’ soccer teams begin the regular season Thursday (January 4) in separate tournaments.
The Wildcats are competing in a three day Forney tournament. The Wildcats played West MesquiteThursday morning. A match against Forney started at around 12:30 p.m. Thursday.

Friday the Wildcats will play Royse City, another possible bi-district foe, at 12:30 p.m. and also Amarillo Tascosa at 6:30 p.m. Wildcats Soccer Coach Nicky Wiggins was on KSST Radio and Cable Channel 18’s Saturday Morning Coaches Show last Saturday and he explained that the Forney tournament has a lot of teams in it from the Wildcats’ district and the district they face in bi-district play. The two district’s get matched up to keep district teams from meeting each other.

The Lady Cats will compete against Athens Friday at 12:45 p.m. and Garland on Saturday at 8 a.m. Lady Cats Soccer Coach Joel Bailey was also on KSST Radio and Cable Channel 18 TV’s Saturday Morning Coaches Show last Saturday and he said if all goes as planned, the Lady Cats should have a nice long run in the Terrell tournament.
