Logan High School’s Abbie Myers scores two in the lane in the Lady Cats’ 44-43 loss to Nitro on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 at Logan.

LOGAN — A two-day home showcase highlights the recently released 2021-22 Logan High School girls’ basketball schedule.

After opening up the season on Dec. 7 at Herbert Hoover, Logan is then slated to host the Wildcat Classic Premiere Showcase, Dec 10-11 at Logan’s Willie Akers Arena.

The host Lady Cats are slated to play PikeView on Dec. 10 at 7:45 p.m. in a rematch of the 2021 Class AAA state tournament game which was won by Logan, 61-30.

Logan then takes on Lincoln on Dec. 11 at 5:45 on the final day of the tournament.

Four games are on tap on Dec. 10.

The Logan Middle School girls take on Beth Haven at 5 p.m., then Robert C. Byrd plays Tug Valley at 6:20. Logan faces PikeView at 7:45 and Musselman plays Spring Valley in the 9 p.m. finale.

Seven games are scheduled to be played on Dec. 11 at Willie Akers Arena.

Nitro squares off with RCB in the 11:45 a.m. opener, then PikeView takes on Lincoln County in Game 2 at 1:10 p.m.

The third game at 2:35 p.m. has George Washington taking on Musselman.

Game 4 at 4 p.m., pits Cabell Midland against Parkersburg South.

Then in Game 5 at 5:25, Logan locks horns with Lincoln.

Wyoming East plays Parkersburg Catholic at 6:50 and Tug Valley closes out the tourney at 8:10 p.m. against an undetermined foe.

“We are looking forward to the Showcase,” Logan coach Kevin Gertz said. “There will be 10 high school games — all girls — and out of those games there will be 14-15 teams in that and just about everyone but one or two made it to the state tournament last year and are expected to go back. This will be the biggest girls’ shootout in the state.”

The Logan girls finished 12-4 last season, advancing all the way to the Class AAA state semifinals before bowing 52-33 to undefeated Fairmont Senior.

The upcoming schedule is a tough one for the Lady Cats.

Logan is set to have non-conference games this season against Westside, Oak Hill, Ripley, Wyoming East and Lincoln County.

Cardinal Conference match-ups this season are against Chapmanville, Scott, Wayne, Poca, Nitro, Winfield, Sissonville and Herbert Hoover.

The Lady Cats are led by senior Peyton Ilderton, who was a First-Team All-State pick last season. She was also a First-Team All-Cardinal Conference pick. Ilderton averaged better than 20 points a game last season.

Logan also returns senior Abbie Myers, a Second-Team All-Conference pick from a year ago, and Natalie Blankenship, an Honorable Mention selection.

Emma Elkins, Autumn Adkins, Rylee Conn, Alyssa Goff, Harlee Quick and others are also coming back.
