  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...
Royal Valley's Marshall Stewart (shown above, top) works on pinning his opponent to the mat in one of the team's home duals last Thursday. Stewart and the RVHS wrestlers had a lot of success on the night, sweeping their home quad with Pleasant Ridge, Atchison and Perry-Lecompton.
  Starting competition in 2016, the Royal Valley wrestling team had a clear-cut goal. After starting the season strong, coach Jason Puderbaugh noted he didn’t want his team to let up and it seemed the Panthers took that message to heart in a trio of duals in Hoyt on Thursday night. “I thought our...
  Over the Christmas break, high school athletes have been hard at work looking to come back strong in the second half of the basketball and wrestling seasons. Meanwhile, their counterparts at the collegiate level have been doing the same while still in competition and several athletes with local...
Jackson Heights' Zane Richter (shown above, second from right) comes down with a rebound early in Tuesday's NEKL contest against Valley Falls. Richter had another big night for the Cobras, but the team also showed some balance as numerous players hit key shots to give JHHS just enough separation in a 46-37 victory over the Dragons.
  Jackson Heights’ boys basketball team found itself in an odd position on Tuesday night against Valley Falls in its first game back from break. Used to being the aggressor and harassing teams with their defensive intensity, the Dragons gave the Cobras fits instead on the defensive end and JHHS...
Wildcat Lawson Henry (shown above, at right) grapples with an opponent from Tonganoxie during a dual earlier this season. Henry is one of several young wrestlers who keep coming along for the HHS wrestling team this winter.
  The young Wildcat wrestlers have been busy on the mat and had their third stand-alone dual of the season last Thursday, making the trip north to take on Big Seven League foe Sabetha. It was a tightly contested match-up between the last two league champions, but the Blue Jays came out slightly...
  While high school basketball in Jackson County was just heating up before the Christmas break, the middle school girls basketball season was winding down during that same time. Like some of the county high school teams off to fast starts, though, several squads from Holton, Jackson Heights and...
Panther Tamo Thomas (shown above, middle right) floats a shot over the Santa Fe Trail defense in a non-league contest to close out the first half of the season. Thomas was strong for Royal Valley again, leading the team with 12 points in the 54-30 victory.
  After a number of slow starts earlier this basketball season, the Lady Panthers finally seemed to find their pace as they built up to a steady cruising speed before racing ahead of visiting Santa Fe Trail on the way to a 54-30 victory on Friday night. Both teams needed some time to gear up, as it...
