Holton's Kyler Tannahill (shown above, top) gets position on his opponent to set up a pin in one of the matches in the Wildcats' dual against Jeff West. Tannahill was one of several young wrestlers to turn in strong performances in the double dual at HHS.
  For a Holton wrestling team that went 4-1 in a dual tournament with several 5A and 6A teams to start the season, with its only loss coming by two points to the top-ranked team in Class 4A (Chanute), any minor strides forward would have been enough to make its next opponents wary. Add in the fact...
Royal Valley's Tristan Tessendorf (shown above, right) goes up for two of his 10 points in Tuesday's 49-46 victory over visiting Riverside.
  Clearly, the Panthers did not get enough basketball in last Friday as they followed up a double overtime win over Hiawatha with another win in extra periods against Riverside on Tuesday night. This time, the RV boys needed just one extra session as they held off the Cyclones at home for a 49-46...
Wildcat Ashlyn Weilert (shown above, right) launches a three in the second half of last Friday's game against Atchison County. Weilert and the rest of the HHS team had a strong offensive showing on the way to a 63-50 victory.
  When you’re hot, you’re hot and compared to the first two games of the season, the Lady Wildcats were practically scorching on the offensive end in Friday’s basketball game at Atchison County. After a blazing start in which Holton scored nearly as many points (38) in the first half as it did in...
Panther Noah Rottinghaus (shown above, left) falls away after a short jumper in the second half of Tuesday's game at home against the Tigers. Rottinghaus and several of his teammates came alive in the second half and spurred RV to a 51-25 victory.
  After a sluggish start in Tuesday’s home match-up with ACCHS, the Royal Valley boys basketball team seemingly flipped a switch and pulled away in the second half on the way to a 51-25 victory. Following one quarter of play, the Panthers were holding a 7-5 lead and struggling to gain any traction...
Cobra Korby Strube (shown above, middle) slices through the lane for a basket in Friday's home game against the Raiders. A lot of things went right for JHHS on offense as the team picked up a 50-27 victory in its first game.
  Early on in the Cobras’ opening game of the basketball season against Immaculata on Friday, it seemed like the Jackson Heights boys could do no wrong on offense. Jackson Heights hardly missed any shots on the offensive end and built up a large halftime lead on the way to a 50-27 victory over the...
Jackson Heights' Katelin Strube (shown above, middle left) fights to control a rebound in Friday's game against Immaculata. The Cobras stayed intense throughout on the way to a 48-32 victory.
  If there was one word to summarize the Jackson Heights girls basketball team in their opening game, a 48-32 victory, at home against Immaculata, “intense” would certainly fit the bill. At the very least, it was an adjective head coach Dan Shupe was very happy to use in describing his team’s...
  With some large, strong senior classes being lost to graduation last spring, this season could certainly be qualified as a rebuilding one for most of the Jackson County football teams. Royal Valley was adapting to a coaching change, Jackson Heights was adapting to a string of injuries and Holton...
Panther Joe Cullen (shown above, left) slashes to the basket during a drill at a recent RVHS practice focused on transitional offense and defense.
  In the past two seasons, the Royal Valley boys basketball team has been knocking on the door of some next level success. A year after an upset victory that pushed them into the sub-state semifinals, the Panthers followed that up by coming one win short of reaching the state tournament last season...
Jackson Heights' Lane Holliday (shown above, left) launches a shot over teammate Westin Jacobsen as new head coach Chris Brown (back middle) looks on and works to teach his team during  a recent practice.
  For the Jackson Heights boys, there may be some bonds even stronger than basketball holding the team together this season. Richter, Olberding, Jacobsen, Thomas and Holliday; all of these are familiar names to fans and supporters of Cobra basketball. Now, it is time for some younger brothers to...
Wildcat Parker Sides (shown above, left) tries to close off the lane as teammate Cole Lehwald drives towards the basket at a recent practice. With just two returning starters, a lot of players like Sides and Lehwald are looking to make an impact on this year's team.
  Stop me if you’ve heard this one before:  The Holton boys basketball team is under the gun with the start of the season rapidly approaching. With the success of the football team, it has almost become de rigueur for the basketball squad to be playing catch-up in late November and early December....
