District Wildcats’ baseball, district Wildcats and Lady Cats’ soccer and Lady Cats’ non-district softball are all on this Tuesday (March 10) game day.
Because of District 15-5A baseball teams playing three rounds of district play, the district season has to begin before all the tournaments are done. That means before the Wildcats play their third and last tournament this year at Hallsville starting Thursday, they begin district play on this game day Tuesday. The Royse City Bulldogs are coming to town to play the Wildcats Tuesday at Wildcat Park beginning at 7 p.m. Prior to the varsity game, the Wildcats JV Royal Team plays Royse City’s JV at 4 p.m. The Wildcats come into the district opener with a solid record of 7-3-1. The Wildcats last played in the Raider Classic at Wylie East where they lost in the championship game Saturday to Dallas Lake Highlands, 4-3. MaxPreps has Royse City with a 4-4-1 record so far this season. Wildcats Baseball Coach Jarred Hammack is looking for his team to get off to a good start in district play. The Wildcats struggled with the Bulldogs in district play last season losing all three games they played.
The Lady Cats Soccer Team is at home on this game day Tuesday as they face Texas High in a district game at Gerald Prim Stadium on Senior Night. Eight Lady Cats will be honored. There will be a JV match at 5:30 p.m. with the varsity game to follow at 7:15 p.m. After defeating Mount Pleasant at home on Friday, the Lady Cats are tied with Mount Pleasant in second place in the district with 6-2 records. The Lady Cats have a tie-breaker edge over the Lady Tigers. The Lady Cats edged by Texas High 2-1 when the two teams played in Texarkana on February 21. The Lady Cats trailed at the half, 1-0 but scored two unanswered goals in the second half. The Lady Cats season record is 10-8-1. KSST Radio will bring you the Texas High and Lady Cats soccer game live from the Prim with streaming audio. The game will also be videotaped for replay at a later date on Channel 18 on Suddenlink Cable.
The Wildcats Soccer Team travels to Texarkana to play Texas High on this game day Tuesday. The Wildcats are solidly in second place with a 6-2 district record.
