Wildcat Football Spring Game This Saturday



The Bethel Wildcats will hold  the annual spring football game at Wildcat Stadium this Saturday, April 20, at 2 p.m. The Pigskin Cats began spring practice Monday March 25.

Bethel finished last season at 9-4 and No. 9 in the final NAIA Top 25.  The Cats won seven games in a row before losing at Missouri Valley in the second round of the championship series.

Coach Chris Elliott enters his second season as head coach of the Wildcats after winning coach of the year honors last year in the Mid-South Conference Western Division. The Wildcats lost 19 seniors from the 2012 squad but return many key members from a team which carried Bethel back to the play-offs for the first time since 2007. With those returning and the latest recruits to the program, the Wildcats will look to build on the success of last year.

A partial 2013 fall schedule has been released by the Bethel Sports Information Office. Fans are advised to note one of two open dates on the schedule will be filled as Coach Elliott and his staff work on completing the schedule as soon as possible. Times will be announced at that time.
