Members of the All-County volleyball team are pictured above and include (front row, from left to right) Megan Rhule (HHS), Courtney Boswell (HHS), Ashlyn Weilert (HHS), Ali Bryan (RVHS), (back row, left to right) Katelin Strube (JHHS), Hannah Williams (JHHS), Hayley Thompson (HHS), Macy Putnam (RVHS) and Kate Hanson (RVHS).
  Jackson County volleyball teams may not have been playing on the final weekend of competition this fall, but that didn’t detract from three pretty good seasons all-around. Holton, Jackson Heights and Royal Valley all finished in the top half of their league standings this season. In fact, the...
Cobra fullback Adam Brey (shown above, second from left) puts his shoulder down and tries to charge forward for a few extra yards in Friday's playoff game at Olpe. While Brey and his fellow running backs racked up the yards, Heights could not translate that into points, ultimately bringing an end to the Cobras' 8-2 season.
  At first glance, the score of Friday’s Class 2-1A sectional contest between the football teams from Jackson Heights and Olpe tells a one-sided tale. For much of the game, however, the Cobras and Eagles were locked in a back and forth battle in Olpe and Heights was within striking distance of the...
Cross country runners selected to the All-County boys team are pictured above and include (front row, left to right) Garrett Hicks (RVHS), Westin Jacobsen (JHHS), Andrew Pino (JHHS), (back row, left to right) Darius Frisby (RVHS), Kwaki Spoonhunter (RVHS), Xavier Fritz (JHHS) and Dalton Chartier (JHHS).
  Cross country competition for the Jackson County boys this season was defined by team success as none of the three teams had a true “front-runner,” but the Cobras and Panthers in particular showed a penchant for being able to “pack it in” no matter the size of the race. In Jackson Heights’ case,...
Members of The Holton Recorder’s All-County girls cross country team are pictured above, including (front row, left to right) Katie Hanshaw (RVHS), Faith Little (JHHS), Hanna Davault (JHHS), (back row, left to right) Alexis Coverdale (HHS), Kaytlyn Gooderl (RVHS), Kiikto Thomas (RVHS) and Brianna Cattrell (JHHS).
  There is strength in numbers. Unfortunately, that is not a strength the girls cross country teams in Jackson County could rely on this fall as Royal Valley was the only school to field a full five-member team throughout the entire season. While the Cobras, Panthers and Wildcats may have been...
  With winter sports like basketball and wrestling starting to pick up for collegiate teams, more area alumni are getting opportunities to shine…and shine they have as several graduates from Holton, Jackson Heights and Royal Valley have made their impact felt in recent weeks. Some of the top recent...
Jackson Heights' Wyatt Roles (shown above, middle) lunges into the backfield to make a stop in the second half of the team's regular season finale against Valley Heights. Roles and the rest of the defensive line came up big for JHHS last Thursday, helping the team pick up a 24-6 victory over the Mustangs.
  Thursday night’s district battle between the Jackson Heights and Valley Heights football teams proved to be a war of attrition. In the end, despite a sloppy first half, the Cobras were able to wear down the Mustangs and pull away for a 24-6 victory. With the Mustangs’ season on the line, the...
The Jackson Heights football team celebrates on its home field Thursday night after a 24-6 win over Valley Heights in the regular season finale. With the win, the Cobras wrapped up their first district title since 2002.
