2012-2013 Region 4-AAAAA boys basketball tournament was named after assistant head Noah Chalkley, who tragically died of a sudden heart attack in January, so it seems only fitting that the Wildcats would win it all after a 50-32 victory over Starr’s Mill in the region championship.
After the sudden death of assistant head coach Noah Chalkley the Whitewater boys basketball team rode an emotional rollercoaster ride all the way to the state playoffs.
As the clock ran down to 00.00 Starr's Mill Panther's head coach Brandon Hutchins leaped up and down screaming "we're going to state we're going to state."

The sequel to the Battle of the Bubble (the annual meetings of the boys and girls basketball teams of Starr’s Mill) wasn’t as intense as the first installment. McIntosh’s Lady Chiefs cruised to a 46-27 win over Starr’s Mill and the McIntosh boys defeated Starr’s Mill 58-46, one of the first match-ups between these two schools in recent memory that did not come down to a buzzer beater.
The Lady Panthers (14-7) extended their three-game regional winning streak with Friday night’s closely contested overtime victory against a team they previously beat by 40 points.
