Wildcats denied chance to repeat


MINNEAPOLIS -- The defending state champions in Class AA returned to Williams Arena Wednesday evening, but this was a new model year.

The New London-Spicer Wildcats were outraced by Pelican Rapids 71-56 in the Class AA quarterfinals.

The loss ended the NLS season with a 23-9 record.

If the small-school divisions were seeded as are the two largest classes, it's likely Pelican Rapids would have been the No. 1.
