Wildcat basketball becoming a family
By Robert Proctor
Last Friday night’s non-district defeat at the hands of Randolph, 58-38, was not a moral victory for Yorktown, but it did show them how far they’ve come since last season as district nears. Though only holding a lead for a moment and ultimately losing by 20 points, it was certainly a performance the Wildcats can build on, as a tough district schedule awaits.

“I wanna watch film, but I do know in the course of the game we missed some layups that were makeable,” he said.
“The outcome of the game is different when we make layups.”
