Holton's Austin Frakes (shown above, middle) fights for a rebound with Royal Valley's Derrick Barger (left) and Noah Rottinghaus (right) in Friday's game. While Frakes and the rest of the Wildcats held their own inside early, the Panthers found some room to work in the second half and pulled away for a 43-32 victory.
  Neither Holton nor Royal Valley wanted to give up much ground in a county rivalry game on the basketball court Friday night. Both teams played hard-nosed defense and kept the other in check, but a key stretch late gave the Panther boys just enough separation to pick up a rare 43-32 victory in the...
  After dropping a nail-biter on the road against Horton last Friday, the Jackson Heights girls basketball team flipped the script when it returned home to face St. Marys in a non-league contest on Monday night. While the teams were neck-and-neck the whole way, the Cobras even trailed in the fourth...

Jackson Heights' Zane Richter (shown above, second from right) comes down with a rebound early in Tuesday's NEKL contest against Valley Falls.

  Jackson Heights’ boys basketball team found itself in an odd position on Tuesday night against Valley Falls in its first game back from break. Used to being the aggressor and harassing teams with their defensive intensity, the Dragons gave the Cobras fits instead on the defensive end and JHHS...
