Wildcats to Get New Division Rival

Posted: Updated:

The Wichita Falls Wildcats will be getting a new division opponent next year, and it will be no push-over.

The defending league runners-up, the Wenatchee Wild, will relocate to Hidalgo, Texas and be renamed the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees.

They're leaving Washington state after being unable to come to a new lease agreement with their arena.

The move will result in a seven-team NAHL South Division once again.

Wildcats head coach Paul Baxter led Wenatchee to back-to-back division titles in that team's first two years of play.
