Friday didn't go near as well as Thursday at the 45th annual Haven Wildcat Classic at Haven HS. After a stunning upset vs the host and #1 seed on Thursday (49-46), the #8 seed Lady Crusaders squared off Friday in the semi-final game against #5 seed Cheney, a team that had handled the Lady Crusaders quite well (39-65) 6 weeks ago in the Cheney Invitational (game actually played at WHS) Unfortunately, Cheney was able to repeat that performance Friday at Haven, final score 59-23.
Tuesday evening was the Wrestling Seniors last opportunity to wrestle on their home mat. The Seniors and their parents were recognized and honored before the dual with Newkirk began.

Congratulations to the 8A Lady Knights!! These (11-0 overall), (10-0 league) 8th grade girls sealed the deal Monday evening at WMS vs El Dorado - final score WMS - 47 EMS - 30
