  Like an actual Wildcat, the Holton football team showed its claws after being backed into a corner early in Friday night’s district football game against Perry-Lecompton. The Kaws drove inside the Holton 10-yard line twice in their first two possessions, but the HHS defense held its opponent to...
Cobra Zane Richter (shown above, middle) meets an Onaga running back head-on for a stop in the second half of Friday's district football game. Richter helped fuel the team's strong defensive effort in the second half as JHHS pulled away for a 46-8 victory.
  It may not have been perfect, but the Jackson Heights football team overcame some early struggles to close out its homecoming game strong on the way to a 46-8 victory over Onaga on Friday.
