By Shari Harris,

  Licking athletes won top honors in 2019 Class 3-District 2 basketball. G.T. Nicholson was named Class 3-District 2 Player of the Year. Nicholson, Michael Milhizer, and Kaden Quick were named to the 2019 All-Class 3-District 2 team. Coach Ben Glasgow was named Class 3-District 2 Coach of the Year.
  The Wildcats faced Mtn. Grove in the District final, with Mtn. Grove afforded a home team advantage due to hosting the tournament this year. The Panthers jumped out to an early lead, 17-13 at the end of the first quarter. They didn’t let up in the second quarter, and built up a 33-21 lead going into halftime. The Wildcat shooters began warming up in the third quarter, scoring 10 to Mtn. Grove’s 11 points and finishing the quarter 44-31.
  The fourth quarter was a battle. Down 13 points, the Wildcats weren’t finished. They outscored the Panthers 17-7 to close the score to within three points, 51-48, with 2:21 remaining in the game. With Nicholson, Milhizer, and Connor Medlock fouled out of the game, the Wildcats had fewer assets to utilize, and the Panthers were able to grab the win, 59-54.
