On Sept. 9, the Wildcats traveled to Wilson Memorial High School for a hard fought battle against the Green Hornets. 

After a 34-2 loss, Braeden Hartbarger, senior offensive lineman, reported on the game. 

“If we execute our assignments like we should, we would improve greatly,” said Hartbarger.  “Also, if we play at our own standards, we will win a lot of games in the future,”

With the season just starting and a 1-2 record, the Wildcats have time for growth. 

Nick Oyler, senior linebacker, agrees with Hartbarger. 

“We have some things to work on, but I think we’ll get this train rolling again and have a great rest of the season,” said Oyler. 

The Wildcats moved the ball at times but were stifled by turnovers. Senior tight end Garrett Stillwell forced a safety to put points on the scoreboard for the ‘Cats. 

The ‘Cats are scheduled to get back on the gridiron Sept. 16 against Staunton at Staunton High School.
