The Yorktown Kitty Kats have come a long way from last year overcoming obstacles one day and one game at a time.
Yorktown Kitty Kat basketball coach Bruno Mata said, “The girls are still learning the fundamentals but they are making progress.”
Last year the Kats had a 4-17 overall record with two wins coming into district games. This year they are 4-3.
The Kitty Kats played Louise on Dec. 2 and won by 10 points which was a big improvement from last year’s lost by 41 points. On Dec. 9, Yorktown played McMullen County and lost by 18 points. Last year the Kats lost by 32 points.
The biggest marker of the Kats improvement was against 12th state ranked team in 1A, Austwell-Tivoli during the Woodsboro tournament.
“We could have beat them with one basket. We were right under the net and could not get the ball in,” Mata said. “We rebounded the ball twice and still could not get it in.”
