Yates Center narrowly falls to Jayhawk-Linn

“I’m not typically one for moral victories, but our guys went out and competed against a very good team last night, and that makes me proud,” said Yates Center head coach Lane Huffman. “They’ve had a great start to the season and we’ve had a rough start. You couldn’t tell that on the court last night.”

MOUND CITY — The Yates Center High boys fought their tails off against a tough Jayhawk-Linn squad but ultimately fell short in their quest for a victory on Monday, 46-38. 

The Wildcats (1-11; 0-4) came out sharp in the first half by keeping a high level of intensity while also playing calm and unforced basketball. 

Yates Center led much of the game until the fourth quarter when Jayhawk-Linn erupted with 16 points.
