WAYNE – As fall sports scrimmages have been held for Wayne State College volleyball, football and women’s soccer, a pair of winter sports programs will be highlighted next week.
As the basketball season is still up in the air and schedules are looking to be finalized, the Wildcats will host intersquad games on Tuesday, November 10. Masking and social distancing measures will be implemented.
From Rice Auditorium, the WSC women’s game will tipoff at 6 p.m. followed by the men’s approximately at 7 p.m.
Last year, the Wayne State College women’s basketball team finished the 2019-20 season with a record of 16-13 overall. WSC placed seventh in the NSIC South Division at 11-11 in league play.
For the Wildcat men, they ended the 2019-20 season with records of 10-22 overall and sixth place in the NSIC South Division with a 7-15 league mark.
The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee will be hosting a food drive to benefit the WSC food pantry. Fans are encouraged to bring non-perishable items for donation to this free event.
Again, fans will need to wear a mask and social distance themselves at the gym on Tuesday, November 10 starting at 6 p.m. for the WSC women’s and men’s basketball intersquad games.
Also, a previous post on the wscwildcats.com website highlighted a Wildcat graduate.
