Kats sweep in area round

 

The 2013 volleyball season has been one of retribution for the Yorktown Kitty Kats. They don’t think about the previous games nor do they put any thought to any of the upcoming games. It is all about the game to be played.
 
“We did not approach [this game] any different than we approached any other game,” said Yorktown coach Deirdre Alexander. “We did not act as if it could be our last. We talked about going out there to beat them from more than what we beat them the last time. Last time we beat them in four and we want to say that we are better than the first game of the season.”
 
Yorktown played Ben Bolt for the area championship in Woodsboro on Nov. 9. The Kitty Kats swept the Lady Badgers in three games staking their claim as area champions.

Wildcats end season against Shiner

 

The Yorktown Wildcats did not lay down after the third play of the game when Jacob Garcia threw an interception landing the Shiner Comanches at the Yorktown 29-yard line. Instead they fought back with what could have been a Wildcat victory but their own mistakes in penalties and change of strategy in the second half cost them the game 28-6.
 
In the first half of the game the Wildcat defense shut down the Comanche attack to only 19 yards rushing with 13 plays. Two of Shiner’s three possessions were turnovers after four plays. The only account for the Shiner’s scoring was after the interception. They were already in Yorktown territory. However that did not stop the Wildcat offense from answering back.

Kats claim district

 

It was not so much about the game as it was about celebrating 20 years going to the playoffs and calling it “Legendary.” The Yorktown Kitty Kats finished their regular season 33-5, 12-0. After the game against Nordheim at home, the Kitty Kats cut the net as part of their celebration as district champions and playoff bound. 
 
Yorktown coach Deirdra Alexander said, “We are not sure what the playoffs will hold for us. We have high goals but all we can do is play each and every game like it is our last.”
 
The team was later paraded on Main Street riding on a trailer with hay bails. The Yorktown Fire Department had a fire engine in front and behind the trailer blowing their horns with a trail of cars behind.
