Winter Sports

Our winter sports teams are in full swing!

Varsity boys basketball team has started the season with an 8 - 1 overall record showing a tremendous team effort in that stretch. In addition to this team accomplishment, Jaylen Alexander currently leads the conference in points, rebounds, and blocks per game. Jaylen and Jack Keller have both also been recognized for their individual efforts as they've been added to the 25 top 4A players in the state watchlist.

Varsity girls basketball is right in the thick of the conference standings. Sitting at 4 – 2 in conference play and 5 – 6 overall. These girls have a attitude of “Never getting Outworked” and have played that way since the start of this season. Senior Mia Nottingham, Kaley Fone and Sage Myers have lead the way along with Soph. Miley Mills and others have lead the wildcats to a fast start.

Varsity boys & girls wrestling have been working hard and have committed to getting better each and every day. Most recently picking up a gritty win against Emmett thanks in part to a dramatic pin by Dade Jordan and a strong showing that resuted in a team win over Caldwell.
