     Sulphur Springs teams will be battling district leaders when they take on Texas High tonight.
    The Lady Cat basketball squad is 21-4, 6-2 in district will be treking to Texarkana. 

    The Texas High squad is 8-0 in district, coming off a 54-44 win over Pine Tree. The Lady Tigers have clinched at least a tie for the district title.
    The Lady Cats have won four games in a row, they beat Mount Pleasant, 57-41 at home Tuesday.
    The Wildcats (13-11, 4-2) will host Texas High (13-6, 6-0) at the SSHS gym. Three games are planned, the varsity contest is set for 7:30 p.m. The contest is a “white out” for all Sulphur Springs fans.
    “Texas High is on top of the district and are undefeated in 14-4A.  They will be a great challenge for us.  They are very athletic and have tremendous depth which allows them to play their uptempo pressing style that they have had success with.  We have to continue to guard our rim and keep them off the offensive boards.  They are going to get up a lot of shot attempts, shoot a lot of 3s.  They are probably the best shooting team in district, so we have to not only extend on shooters but stay in front of them when they attack the basket.  If we defend and take care of the ball, we should be right there with them going into the fourth quarter.” said Jeremy Josey, Sulphur Springs Wildcats coach.
