Somehow it seems fitting that the last SSISD High School game of 2020 would be impacted by COVID-19. The Wildcats Basketball Team’s game at home against Greenville Tuesday afternoon (December 29) was at halftime when High School Assistant Principal Jarret Wilson announced to the crowd that the game was being ended due to what he called COVID concerns. No further explanation was given. The Wildcats were leading 33-22 at the break. The Wildcats led after one quarter 24-13 and both teams scored 9 points in the second quarter. The Lions’ Braelan Brown led all scorers with 10 points. The Wildcats were led by sophomore Kordrick Turner with 8 points and junior Justin Haire with 7 points. Senior Boo Wilkerson added 5 points. Senior Lamodrick Johnson had 4 points. Junior Cason Arrington, junior Caleb Alexander and Parker Whisenhunt all scored 3 points. The Wildcats remain 8-5 for the season. Next the Wildcats resume district play Saturday afternoon at Marshall. Freshmen play at 1 p.m. The JV game is at 2:30 p.m. The varsity Wildcats play the varsity Mavericks at 4 p.m. The Wildcats are 1-0 in district play. Marshall is 0-1.
