The Wildcats basketball team fought all game long but fell to a tough team in Arlington Grace Prep 61-57 on Friday, Dec. 17.
Sulphur Springs kept it close throughout the non-district contest but could not keep up with a lights-out shooting effort from the Lions (12-2).
While the loss was a tough one, Coach Brandon Shaver and his squad got a last good test before district play begins next Tuesday in Marshall.
The Wildcats basketball coach said his team acquired bumps and bruises throughout non-district play, and to compete and play well against a slew of talented teams ranging anywhere from 4A to 6A and Friday’s loss to a top-ranked TAPPS school in Grace Prep, Sulphur Springs is in good hands headed in to district.
The tight loss to Arlington Grace Prep drops the Wildcats basketball team’s season record to 14-5.
Coach Shaver and his Wildcats are back at home on Tuesday when they host Marshall for their district opener.
Tuesday’s match-up with the Mavericks is a mid-afternoon one scheduled to tip off at 3:30 P.M.
The Wildcats-Mavericks district opener on Tuesday, Dec. 21 will be broadcasted on to KSST 1230 AM.
If given permission, we will also livestream the game on to KSST Radio’s Youtube channel.
