As of last week, all sporting events involving Seiling Public Schools have been suspended due to the recent pandemic of COVID-19. While the initial plan is for kids to return school on April 6, that date is tentative with a strong possibility of it being extended or even having the rest of the school year cancelled.

Last week was meant to be the start of the Junior High baseball season, but both Monday’s contest against Shattuck and Friday’s contest against Thomas were cancelled for various reasons. However, Coach Bryan Gore and the Wildcats are set to hit the diamond in the coming weeks.
The Seiling powerlifters traveled to Bridge Creek High School last week to compete in the Small-School Regional Meet, where seven Wildcats competed to qualify for the State Competition. Of the seven, Korben Elliott and Payton Gregory were able to qualify for the State Meet, as both finished second in their respective weight class.
The Seiling Wildcats saw their season come to an end last week, just two wins shy of qualifying for their second State Tournament appearance in three years. After picking up an opening-day victory over Shattuck on Thursday, the Wildcats were defeated by Regent Prep for the second time in eight days, eliminating them from the playoffs.
