Preparing for Belgian conflict

Upcoming events for the Montgomery County varsity boys basketball team include the Columbia Shootout June 22-23, the Harrisburg Shootout on June 25 and on July 8 at 10:00 a.m. the squad is scrimmaging against a team from Belgium. The next day, June 9, the Wildcats will also host a Youth Camp from 8-9:30 a.m., a Middle School camp from 10-11:30 a.m. and a High School camp from 12:30-2:30 p.m.


On the Wildcats agenda

Even though the Montgomery County volleyball program has a rather active June planned, in July its only Open Gym is scheduled for July 2 from 4-5:30 p.m. Once the Montgomery County High School Dead Week takes place from July 27- Aug. 2, there will then be the Missouri State High School Athletic Association Dead Week from Aug. 3-11 and there will probably be a parents meeting on Aug. 11. The first day of practice will then take place Aug. 12. Details:
