The Cuba Middle School girls basketball teams won three out of four games last week. The Lady Wildcats split a pair of games with Steelville and then took two from Bourbon.
Through their first ten games of 2019, the CMS seventh grade girls basketball team has a 3-7 record, while the eighth grade Lady Wildcats have a 6-4 record. Both teams continue to improve from one game to the next as they see more time on the court against different opponents. Randy Bouse and Lorelei Rice make up the CMS coaching staff, with Rice in charge of the seventh grade squad and Bouse heading up the eighth grade team.
Melayna Brown and Logan Ray have been the top runners on the Cuba High School cross country team all year long, consistently having the best race finish times for the CHS girls and boys teams. Their hard work paid dividends on Saturday, as the two runners both qualified for the state cross country meet by running well in the Class 2, District 5 competition that was held at St. Francis Borgia High School in Washington.
The Cuba Wildcats will advance to the semifinals of the Class 2, District 2 football playoffs after getting revenge against the Principia Panthers in a quarterfinal rematch last weekend.
Melayna Brown finished among the top seven runners in last week’s Gasconade Valley Conference cross country championships held at Viburnum, thereby earning all-GVC honors. Brown, a sophomore at Cuba High School, finished fourth overall in the conference varsity girls run. She ran the 5000 meters race in a time of 24:23.22.
