Congratulations to Head Coach Brett Wubbena of the Logan-Rogersville Wildcats. A 2-1 win on Wednesday against the Republic Tigers earned him his 100th career win at the school where he’s been the only Coach for the teams that began play in the Fall of 2008 with the Boys.
The win Wednesday against Republic came 10 months after the Tigers defeated the Wildcats 1-0 in the the District title game, ending Logan-Rogersville run as Champions while earning Republic their first soccer District title. While still Central Ozark Conference foes, the teams are now in different classes.
Wubbena’s girls record coming into the season stood at 51-44-2 (now 52-45-2). The team moved down to Class 1 this season, competing in District 12 with Catholic, Greenwood, McAuley and Monett. They spent their first four seasons in Class 2, including their first in 2009 which is the first year of 3 classes for Girls soccer. The team won the District 12 title in 2011, before falling to Harrisonville 0-3 in the Sectional match. That team was led by Stevie Heidzig, a 2nd Team All-State player in 2011 as a senior, who had moved to L-R from Arizona as a sophomore.
His boys record after last Fall’s fifth season is 48-69-0. Always a Class 2 squad, the team has seen Bolivar win District titles every season except last when Willard won the newly reconstituted District 12, defeating the second seeded Wildcats 3-1.
Last Fall, Senior Joshua Nixon was named to the All-State Academic soccer team, while sophomore Tucker Brown was awarded All-State Honorable Mention. Nixon is the first Rogersville student to receive the all-academic award, with this being the first year the association has recognized a state academic team. The South County Mail has more on the awards.

The team has a Facebook Page for those who would like to follow their on-going exploits. Feel free to reach out to Coach Wubbena and congratulate him on his milestone. After they post this story on the Page 🙂
