Another week of school has gone by, and another week deeper into the basketball season. While our neighbors may be focused on Spurs, Rockets, and Mavericks, Yorktown and Nordheim are watching Wildcats and Pirates.

The Nordheim Pirates traveled to Ingleside on Tuesday to face off against the Mustangs. Ingleside would hand the Pirates their first loss of the year with a final score of 64-32. With a record thusfar of 3-1, there looks to be a great year of Pirate basketball in the works.

Tuesday made it easy for Nordheim and Yorktown basketball fans to fill their need for both teams as the Kitty Kats took the short hop over to Nordheim to face the Lady Pirates. It was a thrilling game that saw Nordheim tie it up at 42-42 with only five seconds left in the game. Heading into overtime, the Kitty Kats would hold off the Lady Pirates to win 47-44. 

The Yorktown Junior High Boys teams faced off against Ganado in a home game Thursday night. The 7th grade boys are still adjusting to the Wildcats system, and gave a valiant effort while falling to Ganado by a score of 38-14.

Following the 7th grade, the 8th grade boys took the court. In their second year of playing Wildcat basketball, the 8th grade boys seem a bit more adjusted to the court, though they also fell victim to Ganado, by a score of 39-37.

With the final football game in the books for the Wildcats, look for the Yorktown boys to be hitting the court soon. After the season they turned in on the field, perhaps the energy and excitement wil carry over into a great season of indoor Wildcat action.
