An improbable, unprecedented high school basketball season had humble beginnings in 1996. East Chapel Hill High’s boys basketball team lost its first game. Playing a roster with no seniors, in a gym with bleachers on only one side of the court, the Wildcats were not expected to have much success as a first-year program. Then, even when they started winning, opponents continued to take them lightly.
Thanks to everyone who listened to the 123 Wildcats trailer episode. We’ve had downloads from around the world, almost as unfathomable as this story. Almost.
