Louisville High School boys and girls soccer coach jim Catchot says he is looking for much improvement out of his Wildcats next season, as they return all but one starter.

“I am playing with four eighth graders and a bunch of 10th graders most of the time, so we are very young and are gaining some valuable experience,” he said of the boys team. “We were playing a lot of teams who were senior stacked, so that made it tough for us.”

The LHS boys finished the year at 4-6 overall and 2-4 in the region, including a 6-0 loss to league winner Southeast Lauderdale last week. Louisville’s boys and girls matches against MSMS and Winona were cancelled due to cold weather.

The Lady Wildcats, who finished the year at 2-8 overall, will be losing seven seniors off this year’s team. LHS dropped a 4-0 decision to Southeast Lauderdale in the season ender.

“That means we will be totally rebuilding there,” Catchot said. “We just need to get to work and start building for the future.”
