  Holton High School’s boys var­sity basketball team evened up its record with Sabetha for the 2015-16 season with an encouraging 47-38 win over the Blue Jays on Fri­day, thanks to Head Coach Ryan Noel’s halftime reminder to his team that they have to “keep be­lieving.” At the halfway point of...

  For the second time this season, the Holton High School girls var­sity basketball team found itself unable to keep pace with the Sabe­tha High School Blue Jays, but the margin of loss was not as large as it was back in December. Sabetha won Friday’s match against the Lady Cats by a 59-41 score,...

  More than half of the Holton High School wrestlers participating in the annual Gerald Sadowski Memorial Tournament found them­selves on the medalist’s stand Sat­urday, including a first-place showing from senior Justin Ri­eschick and three second-place ef­forts. “We performed about where I...
  The Holton Wildcat boys’ visit to the annual Tonganoxie Basketball Invitational didn’t get off to a good start, but they did come away with a win against league foe Jefferson West, it was reported. Head coach Ryan Noel said that while the opening loss against Eu­dora and a closely-played overtime...
  After defeating the host team at the Basehor-Linwood Tournament on Wednesday, the Holton Lady Cats basketball team dropped the next two games, including a loss to longtime rival Topeka Hayden, to take fourth place at the tournament. Head coach Jon Holliday said that while the two losses were hard...
Holton's Austin Frakes (shown above, middle) fights for a rebound with Royal Valley's Derrick Barger (left) and Noah Rottinghaus (right) in Friday's game. While Frakes and the rest of the Wildcats held their own inside early, the Panthers found some room to work in the second half and pulled away for a 43-32 victory.
  Neither Holton nor Royal Valley wanted to give up much ground in a county rivalry game on the basketball court Friday night. Both teams played hard-nosed defense and kept the other in check, but a key stretch late gave the Panther boys just enough separation to pick up a rare 43-32 victory in the...
  After dropping a nail-biter on the road against Horton last Friday, the Jackson Heights girls basketball team flipped the script when it returned home to face St. Marys in a non-league contest on Monday night. While the teams were neck-and-neck the whole way, the Cobras even trailed in the fourth...
Wildcat Hayley Thompson (shown above, second from left) pulls up for a short jumper in the first half of Friday's rivalry game against the Panthers. It was the three that lifted HHS to an early lead, though, and ultimately a 50-38 victory over RVHS.
  After an explosive offensive outburst in last Tuesday’s win over Hiawatha, it looked like the Holton girls basketball team caught some of that lightning in a bottle and brought it with them to Hoyt on Friday for a rivalry game against Royal Valley. Holton shot lights out from beyond the three-...
Panther Kate Hanson (shown above, at right) fights for a rebound and goes back up for a basket in a recent contest against the Blue Jays. While Royal Valley led most of the way, the team couldn't quite close out the game and Sabetha stormed back for a victory.
  For 21 minutes, the Lady Panther basketball team had the Sabetha Blue Jays right where they wanted them. Through an impressive defensive showing and a hot start offensively, Royal Valley held a lead for most of the first three quarters against the second-ranked team in Class 3A. In the final...
  To start 2016, just like some Jackson County teams, area teams from Wetmore and Atchison County Community high schools had tough tests to start the new year. Wetmore started things off by hitting the road to take on Axtell and while the boys basketball team didn’t have quite enough firepower to...
