Holton senior Lucas Lovvorn (shown above, on top) works on pinning his opponent in regional competition last weekend. After a dominant showing in Baldwin, Lovvorn is eyeing a second straight individual state title in Salina this weekend.
  Champions aren’t born, they’re made, though when it comes to Holton High School senior wrestler Lucas Lovvorn, the son of Mike and Kim Lovvorn of Holton, the case could be made for both schools of thought. Already a 15-year veteran of the sport, Lovvorn seemingly had little choice whether he...
Royal Valley's Lexi Baker (shown above, at right) drives in for two points during a fast break in the second half of Tuesday's game against Perry-Lecompton. Those opportunities were key for the Panthers, as the defense helped fuel the team to a 40-38 victory over the Kaws.
  Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than to be good, and the Royal Valley girls were lucky to be down just seven points at halftime in Tuesday night’s home basketball game against Perry-Lecompton. The Kaws were the aggressors and won most every battle on the floor in the first half, from field goal...

Former Wildcat Ryann Bowser (shown above, middle) pushes the ball up the court in recent Big 12 match-up between Texas Tech and Kansas. Bowser joined the Red Raiders this season after a highly successful run at Highland Community College.
