The Lady Cats went 24-11 in 2009 and were co-champions of District 13-4A. Carrillo feels that this year is a good time to complete the unfinished business of taking the title and making a run in the playoffs.
Last year the team fell 9-0 and 12-4 to Waco Midway in the area round of the Class 4A playoffs.
The Sulphur Springs Wildcats hope that their second home district game of the week goes better than the one did Tuesday.
The loss Tuesday to Marshall, 72-49 was a sign of fatigue. The Wildcats (1-21, 0-5) are playing short-handed which limits their able to keep up with some teams..
Probable starters include: Seth Harris, Joey Davis, Alvin Frazier, Gage Williams and Jaquavian Willis.
The Wildcats host Hallsville (12-10, 0-5) on Friday with game scheduled for the ninth, JV and varsity teams beginning at 5 p.m.
The unusually warm weather at Gerald Prim Stadium was a nice backdrop to the game.

The varsity won 4-0 behind a hat trick of three goals by sophomore Adrian Correa with Jesus Arellano adding one.
“I thought we had a good showing. We played much better this time against Royse City than we did a couple of weeks ago and the results show that. Rodrigo Larios did a good job for us at sweeper helping to keep Royse City from scoring,” Holt said.
