The Wildcats will host Three Rivers Conference rival, The Tippecanoe Vikings, Friday, December 19th at Whitko Jr/Sr High School. Fans can look forward to an exciting match-up just as school ends for the Christmas Break.

But the game is just part of the fun! Fans can come out to enjoy a fun-filled-evening where the ticket will get them a "front row seat" to a host of holiday cheer. 

Kicking things off, Fans can bring a cash donation for the West Family, that will be accepted at entry. The West Family recently suffered the loss of their home due to a fire and Whitko student Summer West was severely injured during the accident. In November, families in the Whitko Community rallied around the West Family to bring awareness to their situation and to assist them with their financial burden. Friday night, will be an opportunity to spread holiday cheer for those wishing to donate to the family to assist in ongoing family and medical expenses. 

At halftime, the Whitko Jr High boys basketball teams will be introduced to fans! In addition to hearing their team called over the loud speakers, the boys have earned free entry to Friday's game and they will each receive a complimentary Varsity Basketball poster, which they can stick around after the game to get autographed. 


For fans who would like a poster, each poster is $3. The boys varsity players will be accepting free-will donations, too, with all money collected going directly to the West family. Sam Rickerd, Whitko Alumni and 2018 Valedictorian will be playing Christmas music and fans can also receive a candy cane while waiting in line for their team autographed poster.
HEY BLUE CREW -- Get in on all the fun and wear a Santa Hat! Local stores (we won't say which) in South Whitley and Pierceton are selling them for as low as $1.
