The Wildcats Baseball Team is playing Mount Pleasant on the road in a district game on this busy Tuesday (March 16) game day. The schedule calls for the JV game at 4 p.m. with the Varsity game to follow at 7 p.m. The Wildcats got a district win at home over Longview one week ago and they are 1-0 in district play. They are 4-10 for the season.
The Lady Cats Softball Team will resume their always competitive rivalry with Mount Pleasant in a district game at Lady Cat Park Tuesday night. The JV game starts at 4:30 p.m. with the Varsity game at 6 p.m. The Lady Cats are 1-1 in district play after their 1-0 win over Longview Friday evening. The Lady Cats have a season record of 10-3. According to Max Preps, Mount Pleasant is 3-0 in district play and 12-4 for the season.
KSST’s sister station KRVA-FM, 107.1, will have the radio broadcast of the Lady Cats and Lady Tigers with Ross LaBenske doing the play by play.
Meanwhile the Lady Cats Soccer Team appears to be playing for their playoff lives in a district game on Senior Night against Hallsville at Gerald Prim Stadium. There will be a JV game at 5:30 p.m. with the Varsity game at 7:15 p.m. Seniors Chloe Jones and Janine Yamaguchi will be recognized between the two games. The Lady Cats are currently in fourth place in the district standings. They appear to need a win to secure a playoff spot. The Lady Cats are 6-5 in district play and they have 17 points. If they lose to the Lady Bobcats, Mount Pleasant could well move past them. An expected Lady Tigers’ win over winless in district Marshall would give Mount Pleasant 18 points. The Lady Cats, with a win and a Pine Tree loss to first place Longview, would move into third place in district. The Lady Cats are 11-9-4 for the season. Hallsville is second in district with 22 points. They are 7-3-1 in district play and 15-4-2 for the season. Hallsville won the first match between the two at home, 4-3 back on February 25. KSST will have the Lady Cats and Lady Bobcats broadcast from The Prim on Senior Night. The broadcast will feature streaming video and audio. The game will also be videotaped for replay at a later date on Channel 18 on Suddenlink Cable.
The Wildcats Soccer Team also needs a win in a district game tonight in Hallsville to nail down the district’s #4 playoff spot. Win and they are in, lose and they are out. There will be a JV game at 5:30 p.m. The Varsity game will follow at 7:15 p.m.
The Wildcats are 5-6 in district play and 14-10-1 for the season. The Bobcats are 5-6 in district play and 8-16-1 for the season. When the two teams met at The Prim on February 25, the Wildcats won 5-0.
It’s a big night indeed for the Wildcats and Lady Cats.
