I have to imagine Denison fans are sick of seeing Sulphur Springs. The Wildcats have become a staple of the Jackets’ schedule in the past decade and outside of a region final victory in 2009 to propel Denison into the state semifinals, things don’t normally end well for the black and gold side. When Denison had made it to the playoffs in 2008 after a three-year absence, the Jackets were 12-0 and dreaming big. Sulphur Springs handed them their only loss in the region semifinals and the Wildcats went on to win it all. Fast-forward five years and Denison makes the playoffs after a three-year absence. And again Sulphur Springs is the eliminator, making a trip to the postseason the Jackets had waited so long for come to a quick ending.
