8th Grade Boys’ Basketball

The 8th grade boys’ basketball team lost a tough one last week to Memorial. But the Cats had plenty of positives as well. The blue and white started slow, but after earning a few defensive stops, they got going. Cormac Snyder came off the bench to help spark the Cats’ offense. And Seth Hoersten and Reece Hemmert gave the team a boost as well.  Overall, the Cats fought back to make it a game, but the buzzer sounded before they could take the lead. Proud of the effort, Cats. Keep pushing for more.
