The Lady Cats had the game cancelled and scrimmaged Mount Vernon Saturday morning.

The Wildcats, ranked No. 15 in the state, will be in the Cowtown Showdown at North Crowley Saturday. The junior varsity plays at 1 p.m. and the varsity at 4 p.m., both teams face Plano East at Crowley High School.

Sulphur Springs scrimmaged Tuesday at Longview with coach Clark Cipoletta pleased with the outing.

“We are excited about the first real game coming up this Saturday. We are not ready yet but will be come Saturday. Plano East is a very athletic and good team that wants to push the pace and pressure you all over the floor,” Cipoletta added.
