    How to Subscribe to the Live Stream Games

    Go to NFHSnetwork.com to subscribe to be able to see the live stremed games.  I have attached the link below to make it easier. 



    I would personally like to thank all the Student Athletes that came to workouts and tryouts as well as their parents for allowing them to attend and for transporting them back and forth.  The only way we can grow our programs is to have as many students tryout as possible.  As we know, it is better to have attempted and not succeeded than to not have attempted at all.  I would also like to thank all of the Coaches and Student Athletes for following the New Covid-19 protocols that have been set in place to be able to hold sports this year.  We ask for you continued support as we move through these uncharted times and extreme settings.

    Coach Roberson

     We will hold a parent Zoom meeting for all Cheer and Basketball Parents next week.  I will be sending a Link as we get closer.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.


    We would like to congratulate the Boys and Girls for successfully becoming members of the Horton Middle School Wildcat Basketball Program!!!  We would like tothank each of you for your dedication to Athletics and Academics!!!

    We have 2020/21 CCS sports schedules ready! 


    Thursday 9/10/2020

    I have added the new 2020/21 schedules to the files located at the bottom of this page.  If you have any questions please let me know.  These schedules are still a work in progress and are subject to all NC mandates as related to opening schools during this time.  This schedule has been developed based on students returning to school and resuming in person learning.  If the at home learning time is extended by the School Board then we will have to revise this schedule.


    We are all missing sports on every level, especially at Horton Middle School! The NCHSAA has been anouncing changes that they are recommending in order to hold sporting events; however, at this time all final decisions on holding athletic events will rest on the individual school systems. With that being said, the only update that I can give you at this time is that if we can not allow students on campus then we will not be participating in sports. I will continue to update the athletics page as we find out more information.

    Go Wildcats!
