The 8th grade group struggled to score in both games and suffered their first losses of the season. First, they took on CO Wilson, losing 22-26. It was back and forth the whole game, but the Cats' shots just would not fall. Offensively, they were led by Rylan Agerton with eight and Carson Gonzales with 10. Next, the group took on Port Neches and lost 48-29. This game kept the Cats flustered as they tried to stop the point guard from PNG. Offensively, this game was led by Owen Sims who had a double-double with 10 points and 10 boards. Rylan Agerton, Carson Gonzales, and the rest of the squad played smothering defense, but the Cats ran out of gas as the Warriors kept sinking shots.
