Kitty Kats take 18th bi-district title

The Yorktown Kitty Kat volleyball team just made their 18th win as bi-district champions after defeating San Antonio Stacey in three sweeps, 25-9, 25-10, 25-11.

Yorktown coach Deirdre Alexander said, “No matter how many times you have been to the playoffs you always get adrenaline pumping and the experience is always exciting. Just getting that first playoff win under the belt helps the team overcome nerves.”

The Kats performed as expected. Deirdre said, “I was very pleased with our performance. As a team, overall, we played a competitive strong game. We set and hit well. If I had to say there was a weakness I would have to go back to our missed serves.”

One area of concern is defense. The Kats have not seen a lot of challenge in their defensive game since the Bronte Showdown. She said, “I would have liked to see our defense challenged more to help prepare us for the following match up, but there were definitely many positives from the game.”

Yorktown Wildcats clinch playoffs

Yorktown has clinched a spot for playoffs after defeating Runge 52-0 last Friday night in Runge.

At the start of the game Runge had first possession of the ball controlling the clock four minutes 11 seconds. They soon discovered the speed of the Wildcat defense with several tackles for loss and their fair share of hurries for the quarterback limiting the Yellow Jackets to two first downs, 14 yards rushing and 7-yards lost in passing. Their greatest gains in yards were the four punts for 126 yards.

Yorktown had two big runs (one of them a touchdown) during their first possession. Both were called back because of personal fouls, but that did not stop the team from scoring and getting the 2-point conversion, 8-0.
