Panther Caitlin Burns (shown above) puts a ball in play in the second game of a doubleheader in Holton on Monday, sparking a big inning for her team. Royal Valley had a lot of those on Monday in a pair of victories, 16-4 and 10-1, over Holton to move to 11-1 on the season.
  If Monday’s doubleheader between the Holton and Royal Valley softball teams was a little bit anticlimactic, it may have had a little bit to do with timing. With the Wildcats playing just their fourth series of the season in only their second week of competition, you could say the Panthers had a...
Holton's Aaron Bain (shown above, at left) sees the ball down in the outfield before taking off to score while Royal Valley's Noah Hart (right) waits for the relay throw. The teams split the series on Monday, with the Wildcats picking up an 11-2 victory in game one and the Panthers closing out the doubleheader with a 7-1 victory.
  All signs pointed to Monday’s doubleheader between the Holton and Royal Valley baseball teams being a pretty evenly matched affair. Both the Wildcats and Panthers sported similar records heading into the match-up with each team having its hits and misses so far this year. Monday’s games were a...
Cobras Logan Wells (shown above, middle) and Kyler Vance (far right) bound over the hurdles in the middle of the 110m race at Tuesday's meet in Holton. Both earned key points that helped the JH boys finish runner-up as a team at the meet.
  So far this track season, the weather has been pretty agreeable on meet days and the Jackson Heights athletes have been taking advantage of that. Tuesday in Holton was another example of that. “Overall, I thought we competed pretty well Tueday,” JH coach Lyle Alley said. “We just had several...
Royal Valley's Lucas Broxterman (shown above) soars through the air during an attempt in the finals of the boys long jump at the team's home meet on Tuesday. Broxterman and some other young athletes have come to the forefront to help the RVHS track team get off to a strong start this spring.
  Maybe there’s something in the water around Hoyt, because for a team that RV track coach Denise Visocsky said might struggle to compete at a high level (compared to past results) this season, the Panthers have been right in the thick of things in their first two meets. Coming off a pair of runner...
  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...
Wildcat Ali Morris (shown above, at left) puts a ball in play in the second game of a road doubleheader in Seneca last Thursday. Morris and the HHS softball team got off to a strong start in the season-opener, sweeping Nemaha Central.
  After a long wait and several practices, the Holton softball team might have been getting a little stir-crazy before their season-opener in Seneca on Thursday. Then, the weather played a cruel trick and threatened to delay the start of the Wildcats’ season once again. The rain held off, though,...
Holton sprinters Justin Pool (shown above, front left), Miles McClintock (second from left), Spencer Baum (second from right) and Mason Barta (far right) fire off the starting line in one heat of the boys’ 100m dash at a league quad hosted by Royal Valley on Tuesday. All four finished in the top six in the event and helped the HHS boys claim a team title at the meet.
  Royal Valley and Holton saw a host of league opponents in a meet hosted by the Panthers on Tuesday and both teams stacked up pretty well as no team finished worse then third. The Panthers finished runner-up on both the boys and girls side in their home meet, while the Holton boys took the team...
Royal Valley's Garrett Schultz (shown above) fires in a pitch early in the first game of a non-league doubleheader against Valley Falls. Schultz came up big on the mound and at the plate to help the Panthers pull off the sweep of the Dragons.
  Winning is always fun, but the way teams win can also add to that and RV baseball coach Scott Ternes couldn’t help but be pleased with the way the Panthers won a pair of games against Valley Falls last Thursday night. Royal Valley executed its game plan to perfection, pulling off a pair of close...
HHS hurdler Holly Karn (shown above) soars over one hurdle during the 100m race at the Holton Invitational on Tuesday. Karn got off to a good start this season, setting personal records and taking first in both the 100m and 300m hurdles at the Wildcats' home meet.
  For the Holton track team, Tuesday’s home meet was a very good start as the boys and girls both finished third overall led by some strong individual performances. “As a team, where our numbers are at, I thought we competed real well,” HHS coach Mark Middlemist said. “Our numbers probably aren’t...
  Royal Valley’s season opener on the softball diamond wasn’t short on fireworks as the offense flowed in Wamego last Thursday in a doubleheader the Panthers would end up splitting with the Red Raiders. The visitors from Hoyt wasted no time in getting the hit parade going as Sarah Beam delivered an...
