Cats head into districts in third place

Wes Combs drives to the hoop.It was an up and down week for the Wildcats basketball team going into this week’s district tournament. The Cats defeated Oakleaf easily, but stumbled against the Trinity Conquerors before coming back to beat Interlachen in the last seconds of Friday’s game.

The Wildcats opened the week with a 12-point win over Oakleaf on January 29. CeCe Jefferson had one of his more dominant halves of basketball with 12 points in the paint that helped propel BCHS to an early 6-point lead. The Cats were also sinking baskets from the perimeter in the half with Jesse Gardner hitting two three pointers and Charles Ruise Jr. one of the long bombs.

Gardner was on target throughout the night from the three point stripe. All 12 of his points came from outside the line.

BCHS led 35-29 at the half and kept the Knights at arm’s length while steadily building their lead. The key to the win was good free throw shooting from Johnny Lamb and Cameron Mack in the fourth quarter as the Knights fouled to get back in the game.

Ruise led the Cats with 17 points. Lamb had 15, Jefferson 14 and Mack 6.
