  MANHATTAN—Experience can be so crucial in state tournament competition, no matter the sport. So, while the Jackson Heights and Central Plains boys basketball teams entered their Class 2A state quarterfinal game on nearly equal footing as far as tournament experience was concerned, individual...
  DODGE CITY— Going into Class 1A-DII state basketball action, Wetmore girls coach Perry Smith noted his team was ready to embrace its underdog role, especially after surviving the tough Twin Valley League schedule this season. The Cardinals proved how much bite they had in quarterfinal action on...
  In a very literal sense, this year’s Jackson Heights boys basketball team is the “little brother” to last year’s squad after the team saw five senior starters graduate last spring. Four of those starters from last year (Cole Olberding, Preston Richter, Trevin Jacobsen and Cameron Thomas) have...
Holton's Garett Beecher (shown above, middle) tries to maneuver around an Atchison defender in the 4A-DII sub-state championship game in Hoyt. Beecher went over the 1,000-point milestone for his career in the game, but the Wildcats came just short of making it back to the 4A-DII state tournament in a 67-63 loss to the Redmen.
  After narrowly missing out on a match-up at the midseason Tonganoxie Invitational basketball tournament, it seemed like the Holton and Atchison boys were on a collision course when it came to sub-state competition.

Wildcats Sarah Sweet (shown above, middle) and Hayley Thompson (right) fight for a rebound while teammate Courtney Boswell (left) looks on in the sub-state championship game against Jeff West.

  While a third straight team championship might not have been in the cards for the Holton wrestling team at the 4A state tournament in Salina over the weekend, what the Holton wrestlers did on Friday and Saturday may have been equally as impressive. For the third straight year, the Wildcats...
Cobra Korby Strube (shown above, at right) launches a three-point attempt in the second half of Monday's game against McLouth. Strube poured in 17 points in the game to help Heights pick up a 77-40 victory over the Bulldogs.
  Moving into postseason play, Jackson Heights boys basketball coach Chris Brown said one of the most important things for his team was to understand the sudden death implications of sub-state competition.
