CWU ready for big-time Playoff game in Texas

Posted: Updated:
ELLENSBURG, Wash. - Central is back in the D-Two Playoffs for the second straight season. Saturday's game will be in a hostile environment. They play at West Texas A&M in a 20,000 seat stadium. It'll also be shown live on the local NBC station in Amarillo. The Wildcats are eager to be on the big stage. "We only have four or five thousand people at these games compared to twenty thousand on the road," said sr. CB J.R. Jamerson of Pasco. "We prepare and we're ready for anything that comes at us."
"We're very stoked," said Courtney Smith. "We love big game atmospheres as we did in Montana, so going down to Texas will be another big game. If anything, we'll be more excited than their own players cause we just love the atmosphere."
Both teams are 10-1. Last year CWU won twice in the postseason, advancing to the elite eight.
