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...
The Holton football team (shown above) hoists its regional trophy in the air after picking up a 35-12 victory over Osawatomie last Friday.
  Given how much playoff success the Holton football program has enjoyed during head coach Brooks Barta’s tenure, it seems only fitting that the coach would pick up his milestone 200th career win in the postseason. The Wildcats celebrated that on Friday night, as well as what they hope to be the...
Lady Cardinals (from left to right, above) McKayla Henry, Rylian Martin, Myrna Crismas and Liz Hutfles take off at the start of the Class 1A girls race at the state meet in Wamego last Saturday. Both the boys and girls for Wetmore finished in the top 10 of the team standings in Class 1A state competition.
  Wetmore cross country wrapped up the 2015 season by taking all of its boys and girls to the Class 1A state meet in Wamego this past weekend and holding its own amongst some tough competition. Aaron Achten was the only individual runner to claim a state medal, taking fifth in the boys race, but...
  At present, no team may be more aptly named than the Kansas City Royals. Pick your regal metaphor and it makes sense, whether you prefer to think that KC was crowned champs on Sunday night or that they ascended to their rightful throne after a 7-2 victory over the New York Mets wrapped up the...
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...
Holton's Bryson Patch (shown above, bottom left) dives forward to grab an interception off a tipped pass late in Friday's game against Perry-Lecompton. After some early trouble, HHS dominated the final three quarters on the way to a 28-6 victory over the Kaws.
  Like an actual Wildcat, the Holton football team showed its claws after being backed into a corner early in Friday night’s district football game against Perry-Lecompton. The Kaws drove inside the Holton 10-yard line twice in their first two possessions, but the HHS defense held its opponent to...
  With regional and sub-state competition held over the weekend, teams from Wetmore and ACCHS had to bring their “A” game. Most of them did, too, as the Cardinals and Tigers had a good deal of success this past week. In regional cross country action, Saturday was marked by a number of outstanding...
