Oxford Midnight Madness

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — High school basketball and wrestling season is upon us. For the past couple of weeks the practices have been intense as area coaches determine who is going to start, who isn’t and who will be basketball’s next rising start. At Oxford High School the Wildcats have a unique tradition to Sumner County… “Late Night with the Cats.”

Last Saturday, the Wildcat boys and girls basketball teams hosted their Ninth Annual Late Night with the Cats to kick off basketball season. It is in the tradition of the college basketball Midnight Madness events hosted by teams like KU, K-State and Wichita State. At OHS, the high school version of the tradition was started by Coach Kyle Green in 2005.

“I was an assistant at Council Grove High School, where the Braves performed Late Show in the Grove each year,” Green said. “I give Council Grove Head Boys coach Bruce Hula a ton of credit. He started Late Show up there and when I came here I brought it with me and tagged it Late Night with the Cats.”
