This will be the final edition of Kat Chatter
for the 2015-2016 school year. We hope you
have enjoyed this publication and will
continue to support Kokomo Athletics.
GO KATS!!
Another successful school year is coming to an
end for the Kokomo Wildkat Athletic family!
Once again I have had the pleasure to follow
along and be able to witness so many
outstanding people and performances this year.
2015-16 was truly a great year at KHS.
This year has brought along more IHSAA
tournament championships, record breaking
performances, multiple conference
championships, and state qualifiers. In the fall
there was a stretch of three conference
championships in a two- week time period. The
conference is stronger than it has been in a
long time and we have been making noise in
the state in multiple sports including two teams
in the state championship game in boys’
basketball, truly bringing back the title of
Conference of Champions. We are very excited
about the future and believe our conference
schedule will lead to more recognition and
opportunities for our student- athletes.
We have continued to make improvements to
our facilities, thanks to the outstanding
community support. I would also like to thank
the school board and our school administration
for their continued support. It is so exciting to
be able to work with a group of leaders that are
moving in the same direction to provide the
best for our students and community.

Jason Snyder
Athletic Director
Kokomo High School
We have an OUTSTANDING team in the Athletic Department that I have been
blessed to be able to work with. Just recently completing a stretch of hosting
sectionals and regionals in multiple sports for the IHSAA within a two-week
period really stresses the importance of unbelievable support from the entire team.
I couldn’t begin thanking everyone individually, but they know who they are and
the people that support our programs and this department are second to none.
They work hard to do the right thing for KHS daily and they are the reason
everyone that participates in an event at Kokomo raves about how professional
and first class everything is done. I am fortunate to be a part of such a great group
of people.
We are truly going to miss this senior class of leaders in the Athletic Department.
Their leadership led to a great season with multiple championships. We have
established our Student Athletic Leadership Team this year that has laid
groundwork for improvements in our Athletic Department from many different
angles that is and will be student led. We will miss these future leaders popping
their heads into the Athletic Office and harassing Mr. Swan and we hope they
continue to come back and visit us. They will represent Kokomo very well
wherever they go, and I am very proud of their accomplishments this year.
I would like to thank the fans and parents for their continued support this year. We
have a great following and some of the most loyal fans in the state. Athletic
Directors always comment that they look forward to hosting Kokomo as we know
our coaches and fans will be First Class and great to work with. THANK YOU
FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
I would like to thank Terry Downham has once again done an amazing job with
this publication and it gets better every year! The hours that he spends daily
making sure you are informed with accurate, useful information is really second to
none. There is not a better SID in the state and this is just one part of what he does
to help the Athletic Department. He is such a major part of this team and I could
never thank him enough.
Have a great summer; don’t forget all the great camps offered by our coaching
staff. I look forward to seeing you out in the community this year and back again
for another great year starting in the fall.

The Wildkat baseball team’s season came to an end Wednesday night falling to McCutcheon
5-1.
The Kats jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the first when Colt Munsey doubled and was
knocked in by Noah Hurlock's RBI single. Unfortunately that was all the offense we could
muster.
McCutcheon scored twice in the second inning and twice in the third to take control.
On the mound the Kyle Wade pitched well in defeat. Chase Pearce and Cory Shrock finished
up on the mound to hold McCutcheon in check.
The Kats ended the season 14-14.
We appreciate all our players’ efforts this season and wish them luck in their summer seasons.
Coach Swan
The Kokomo JV Red team finished their season dropping a pair of games at Harrison 8-4 and
12-7.
In the first game, Easton Dupay had six strikeouts for the Kats.
We were led offensively by Brayden Harris (2-2B) and Varteese Mayfield (2-1B).
In the second game, the Kats were led by Harris (2B, 1B), Dupay (2B, 1B), and Gavin Hill (21B).

BOYS GOLF
May 21, 2016
Getting experience on the course that they will play their IHSAA Sectional on, the
Wildkat boys golf team shot 18 holes at the Rock Hollow Golf Course in Peru.
The KHS golfers shot a team total of 353 and finished sixth in the 13-team field in
the Rock Hollow Invitational. Brebeuf won the tournament, which included eight
of the teams that will comprise the sectional field.
Leading the way for the Kats was a pair of seniors – Sam Seagrave and Conner
Wood. Each fired rounds of 81.
Junior Bailey Smith had the next best score for Kokomo with a 94, while senior
Dominic Tarapasky completed the Wildkats scoring with a round of 97.
