Wildcats lose first district game

Coaches' clarification to "practice"

 

Yorktown News-View issue Sept. 25 posted an article titled Kitty Kats continue winning. The reporter quoted Coach Alexander saying, “Gwosdz has not been with us in practice so the players were not playing as a unit.”
 
To clarify any misunderstanding Alexander clarified her comment by saying, “I knew things wouldn’t look good for the game because we hadn’t had everyone at practice. Emily Guerrero had been out with an injury and had not been able to practice for over a week.”
