It took some time, but the Cap City Cougars are hitting their stride. The 2022-23 season looked like a lost cause early on as Cap City lost 12 of its first 14 games, including a four-game losing streak to kick off the year. Since the start of January, however, things have looked entirely different.

The Cougars have won five of their last six games in 2023, including a current four-game winning streak. As an added bonus, all four victories have come in Badger Conference play, bumping Cap City up into a tie for third place in the current standings.
