The Wildcats celebrate a big win earlier in the season against Millard North. This year the Cats finished with a regular season record of 24-5, and they will be a number one seed in their District tournament bracket, however there is always room for improvement. “I think we need to score more runs in the middle innings,” senior Sam Novotny said. “We usually put up runs in the first and last couple innings but I think it would really help if we could put a few more runs on the scoreboard for the middle innings and put more pressure on the other team.”

The Wildcat Unified Bowling team has worked constantly to accomplish what they have so far. The team has worked together for many weeks now and the members can rely on each other in games. “We put in a lot of effort into getting to this point in the season and having this chance, Parkman said. “In the practice before the meet, we attempted to achieve the scores that would get us the win in this meet, and passing them in practice gave us a huge confidence boost.”
