The Yorktown Kitty Kats are showing colors of a winning district team but not without the reality that there is still work to do.
“We were able to see what all we need to improve on during the Nordheim tournament,” said Yorktown girl’s basketball coach Bruno Mata. “We were short a few girls due to prior commitments and a couple of girls were out due to injuries. This tournament gave other girls the opportunity to compete at varsity level. It was a great thing for us to prepare for district play.”
Yorktown’s first game was against Woodsboro with a win 46-28. The Kats took good advantage from the free throw line hitting 10 of 15.
Emily Gwosdz 15 points, Kaylee Dueser 11 pts., Stephanie Mattox 8 pts., Laycee Guerrero 7 pts., Danielle Hernandez 3 pts., Taylor Beckham 2 pts.
The second game was not so pretty as Prairie Lea educated Yorktown 92-30.
