State-ranked Grady too much for Wildcats

Wellman-Union hosted a pack of opponents Tuesday night with a similar mascot, but unfortunately their two final scores weren’t as comparable.
The home Wildcats ultimately suffered a 42-80 loss to Grady - their latest in a frustrating, winless season - bringing the visiting Wildcats to 10-0 with a likely district championship. Coached by Thomas Clay, who routinely led the Broncos to district championships and long playoff stretches during his three-year stretch at Meadow, Grady is now ranked ninth in the state in their division.
W-U Head Coach JoeBob Ussery told the News that given the opponents they were facing, the scoreboard did not show justice to his ‘Cats’ hard fight.
"It was our best game of the year so far against a very good game,” he said. "We set a goal to be more aggressive, and we were.”
Scorers were Vincent Tedford 3-0 6-12 12, Kirby Bailey 2-1 3-6 10, Kirk Martin 2-0 5-7 9, Luis Gonzales 3-0 6, Martin Loewen 2-0 4 and Braden Caldwell 1-0 1-1 3.
