Wildcat Trey Tanking (shown above, front right) floats a shot over a Jeff West defender in last Tuesday's game. Tanking and his Holton teammates were strong on both ends of the floor on the way to a 74-44 victory.
  Call it an omen. Call it good timing. Call it hard work paying off. Whatever you want to call it, Wildcat Trey Tanking’s steal and ensuing three-point play to start Tuesday’s basketball contest between the Holton and Jeff West boys certainly seemed to set the tone for the rest of the game, a 74-...
  With the second half of the high school basketball season picking back up on Tuesday, now seems like a good time to see where the area teams stand compared to their league competition. For the Holton and Royal Valley boys, 2014 saw the teams succeed (both are tied for second behind co-league...
  Going into the break with a win is big for any team, but to top that off the Jackson Heights boys basketball team closed out its final game of the first stretch of the season with a stellar fourth quarter that helped it secure a 68-41 victory over Oskaloosa at home last Friday. “They were playing...
  As Holton coach Ryan Noel put it, there were several reasons the boys basketball team could have packed it in and turned in a sub-par performance in their last game before the Christmas break at Riverside last Friday. It may have looked like the Wildcats were heading that way early after falling...
Holton's Kyler Tannahill (shown above, top) gets position on his opponent to set up a pin in one of the matches in the Wildcats' dual against Jeff West. Tannahill was one of several young wrestlers to turn in strong performances in the double dual at HHS.
  For a Holton wrestling team that went 4-1 in a dual tournament with several 5A and 6A teams to start the season, with its only loss coming by two points to the top-ranked team in Class 4A (Chanute), any minor strides forward would have been enough to make its next opponents wary. Add in the fact...
Royal Valley's Tristan Tessendorf (shown above, right) goes up for two of his 10 points in Tuesday's 49-46 victory over visiting Riverside.
  Clearly, the Panthers did not get enough basketball in last Friday as they followed up a double overtime win over Hiawatha with another win in extra periods against Riverside on Tuesday night. This time, the RV boys needed just one extra session as they held off the Cyclones at home for a 49-46...
Wildcat Ashlyn Weilert (shown above, right) launches a three in the second half of last Friday's game against Atchison County. Weilert and the rest of the HHS team had a strong offensive showing on the way to a 63-50 victory.
  When you’re hot, you’re hot and compared to the first two games of the season, the Lady Wildcats were practically scorching on the offensive end in Friday’s basketball game at Atchison County. After a blazing start in which Holton scored nearly as many points (38) in the first half as it did in...
Panther Noah Rottinghaus (shown above, left) falls away after a short jumper in the second half of Tuesday's game at home against the Tigers. Rottinghaus and several of his teammates came alive in the second half and spurred RV to a 51-25 victory.
  After a sluggish start in Tuesday’s home match-up with ACCHS, the Royal Valley boys basketball team seemingly flipped a switch and pulled away in the second half on the way to a 51-25 victory. Following one quarter of play, the Panthers were holding a 7-5 lead and struggling to gain any traction...
Cobra Korby Strube (shown above, middle) slices through the lane for a basket in Friday's home game against the Raiders. A lot of things went right for JHHS on offense as the team picked up a 50-27 victory in its first game.
  Early on in the Cobras’ opening game of the basketball season against Immaculata on Friday, it seemed like the Jackson Heights boys could do no wrong on offense. Jackson Heights hardly missed any shots on the offensive end and built up a large halftime lead on the way to a 50-27 victory over the...
