Published 7:46 am Friday, March 4, 2016
Varnado’s boys basketball team advanced in the playoffs Tuesday night with a 63-43 victory over North Central in the regional round of the state playoffs.
The win moved the Wildcats one game closer to the ultimate goal of every high school sports team — the state championship.
The fifth-seeded Wildcats have proven to be a tough team with their height, speed, good shooters and good defenders.
Against North Central, Varnado did a great job of playing tough defense and rebounding. The team struggled from the floor, shooting 36.2 percent from the field and 29.4 percent from the free-throw line, but the Wildcats still found a way to win.
Tonight, Varnado returns back home to face No. 4 Arcadia at 7 p.m.
The winner goes to the semifinals.
Good luck to the Wildcats, as they attempt to move on in the Class 1A playoffs.
