Our wrestling team earned another hard fought win Tuesday coming out on top of Sage Valley in the last conference dual of the season. The Cougars have had a rock solid season and head into the District wrestling tournament December 2nd and 3rd. The event will be held at Ridgeview High School.
It took a turn of dramatic events for the Cougars to defeat East Valley Monday night. The Cougars trailed late in the game and it looked like a sure defeat when Courtney Williams scored a layup with 8 seconds to go. However, the game was not in the books yet. The Bobcats turned the ball over and Susie Lara scored the game winning shot at the buzzer to lift the Cougars to victory. Congratulations to our girls and Coach Kevin Sitts for getting this exciting win!
