The Buckhorn Wildcat soccer team in always a virtual unknown coming into any season, and this season is no exception. The Wildcats usually struggle to field a soccer team as they are a small school with limited numbers to chose from. This season will be no exception, with the only known factor will be a consecutive season with the same coach as Earl Fields is expected to return to the sidelines.
Due to their limited participation, Buckhorn is one of the few schools in the region that fields a co-ed team. If a school does not have enough players to field a boys and girls team, they must mix the squad and play a boys’ schedule. The Wildcats have always played in this manner, and this season proves to be no different.
At this time, Buckhorn has not registered any games on the KHSAA website.
