The Pendleton County Wildcats district championship run is over after losing in the first round of the 38th District Tournament to Harrison County 59-40 last Monday, February 17.

“The loss was hard on the team, I do believe,” Wildcats head coach Ed Cravens said. “They had won the district for three years in a row, and I felt bad that we did not get to continue this streak.”
