Holton golfer Cali Smith (shown above) tries to tap a putt in during competition in Topeka earlier this season. Smith and the rest of the Wildcats turned in some of their top scores in regional competition last week, coming just a few strokes short of qualifying for state as a team.
  Compared to last year, any outcome at the regional tournament would have been better for the Holton girls golf team. Last fall, the Wildcats slogged through some miserable weather that greatly affected the team’s final results. It was a night and day difference in Meriden on Tuesday, as Holton...
  Next month, the Symetra Tour (the Ladies Professional Golf Association feeder tour) will return to Firekeeper Golf Course just outside of Mayetta for the 2015 Prairie Band Casino and Resort Charity Classic. Like any event, growth is expected in the second year and that is something tournament...
Holton's Vern Miller (shown above) tees off on hole number one at HCC to kick off championship competition in the member/guest tournament on Sunday. Miller and his partner, Steve Hastert, would go on to win the event for the second year in a row.
  In spite of heavy rains early in the week, the past weekend turned out to be pretty agreeable for the 144 golfers competing in the Holton Country Club’s 30th annual member/guest tournament. When it was over, this year’s tournament saw no changes at the top of the leaderboard as Holton’s Vern...

Something happened that has only happened rarely in the past several seasons, as the Wildcats left a tournament without a team...
  With the success the Holton High golf program has had in recent years, the bar has been set pretty high as far as expectations are concerned. While the Wildcats are still winning tournaments, taking first in their first nine-hole and 18-hole outings this spring, those wins have not been as...
Holton's Hayden May (shown above) tees off during a practice round earlier this spring. With a wide open competition to fill the varsity roster, according to coach Don Swisher, May and any other number of Wildcats could contribute to the team this spring.
  It may not be 11 straight, but with Holton High School’s golf team entering the season as three-time defending league champs there’s room to draw comparisons to a very successful Kansas basketball program. Like the Jayhawks, the HHS wildcats seem to reload rather than rebuild, though Holton has a...
