BOBCAT FANS - All good things come to an end. Cats lose in elimination game 45-67 to WF West.
Extremely proud of what these boys accomplished in 2018-2019. They brought back a winning basketball season with 16-6 overall record; from 6-14 last year. We understand we fell short of some other postseason goals, but we strongly believe we achieved a lot in terms of ‘Big Picture’ for the program; Future is very bright. Thank you to my staff for all the time you put in. Also, thank you for all the support from the community and fans. Most importantly, thank you to the Family of Bobcat basketball players that were a great team all season, and an absolute pleasure to coach. Go Cats!
