Whitko season full of surprises

February 20, 2013

SOUTH WHITLEY — It wasn’t derailed. Maybe just thrown off course slightly.

Whitko’s girls basketball team posted a record in 2012-13 of 7-14. When the season began though, it already felt like the Lady Wildcats were playing from behind.

Whitko was thrown a curve ball early in the season as it had to deal with injuries to a pair of key players. If that was not enough, the team was already staring down being without six seniors who graduated in 2012.
