LA CROSSE, Wis. (WSAW) - The Edgar Wildcats boys basketball team’s season comes to an end in the WIAA Div. 4 State Semifinals. The Wildcats fell 65-41 to Lourdes Academy.

After a slow start that saw the Wildcats only score two points in the first 7:58 of the game, Edgar and Kyle Brewster settled in.

Brewster poured in a team-high 11 first-half points. Edgar shot 1/10 from deep and 9/25 from the field in the first half, but the Wildcats only trailed 25-19 at the break.

The second-half belonged to the Knights’ Josh Bauer. The junior was pouring it in from deep. Bauer shot 4/4 from downtown in the second-half and 5/6 for the game. He finished with 24 points.

Brewster led Edgar in scoring with 17 points. Austin Dahlke chipped in 10. Brewster explains what getting to state means for the future of Edgar basketball.

“I think a little bit that has hit, but obviously, little kids look up to you as you as you’re a high school athlete, and they want to be just like you when they’re young,” said Edgar senior guard Kyle Brewster. “Obviously, once they’re up there, they want to work hard, and do what they did, and obviously, they want to make it to the state game just like the older guys did.”

The Wildcats close out the season at 23-3.
