Senior linebacker Easton Behrens celebrates after a big hit on Prep junior quarterback Tony Coniglio. Behrens and the Wildcat defense hit the Jays behind the line of scrimmage over ten times, and had a sack himself. “Coming into the game I wanted to blitz more,” Behrens said. “With the way the game went, I was happy I got the nod to rush after the quarterback more and more, and hope I can do it some more in future weeks.”

Brady Mar, Jordan Gassen, Holden Clausen, Cooper Fortune, and Michael Bartholomew come out as the starting lineup for DHE. The team only had 6 players to play, making the starting group very tired. I came in thinking that the competition was going to be much harder, since only 2 of us play organized basketball still, Mar said. But we came in and took care of business pretty easily.

Mettelstedt, and the entire Wildcat defense held Circo to just 135 passing yards, and the rest of the Viking offense to 97 rushing yards. “I knew the pressure would eventually get there,” Mettelstedt said. “We are very talented up front, so as long as we followed through, we would hit home and make those plays.”

Junior Noah Blair enters the mat to wrestle. Blair had won the A182 State Championship the year before and was getting ready to do the same again. “I prepare for State the same way I do any other tournament,” Blair said. “Its more than just what you do on the mat, its eating habits, sleep schedule, recovery, et cetera.”

During Millard West’s 74-66 loss to Elkhorn South, the Wildcats found themselves in a position to pull ahead, but were unable to do so. Junior Jordan Gassen (5), senior Zac Grandgenett (22), junior Cooper Fortune (23), senior Peyton Moore (12) and senior Jaden Giaus (14) all were crucial in the teams upset-watch game against the Storm. “We had so many close games throughout the season, each loss was a tough one every single time,” Gassen said. “I was happy we were able to finally get that win against Omaha Central. All of our seniors this year have been great teammates, and it was a pleasure playing with them, and I will miss you next year”. Though the team went 8-15, there is still a lot of promise going into next year.

Another tough season
