For the past two years, Pendleton County has seen success.
Last season, the Wildcats were ranked as high as the fifth best team in the state. They also made the playoffs for the second consecutive season.
Head coach Rick Linaburg says, "Year in and year out, we shoot to be in the top 16, make the playoffs, and I think our kids know that, number one. That's a goal every year and winning breeds winning."
Despite a lack of players this season may be a challenge for the Wildcats, but their expectations are no different from before.
"Naturally our mission and vision here at the school is to be one of the top teams in the state, year in and year out. We want to be there," adds Linaburg. "As long as we have athletic kids who are working hard, we feel like we can continue what we've had going here."
