Ukiah girls in the playoffs

Well, sorta.

In an effort to jumpstart a girls program that has been down for several years, Wildcats’ head coach Andy Henry is bringing several of his players to Santa Rosa on Wednesday to watch the Santa Rosa at Montgomery girls game.

The Wildcats are being hosted by the Montgomery Vikings who will allow the Ukiah team to sit in on a pregame meeting and hopefully, as Henry, puts it – get a feel for what it’s like being in the playoffs.

Hats off to both Henry and Vikings’ coach Pat McDonald for making this happen. Anything to enhance the “spirit of the game” is a huge plus.

And by the way, remember this name next year – Kate Mayfield. She’s a Ukiah striker who just might impress you.
