Holton's Sam King (shown above, middle) slashes to the basket during a scrimmage at team camp earlier this summer. King is one of 14 players competing for HHS in the Kaw Valley summer league and that level of participation has pleased coach Ryan Noel.
  Every summer, coaches at high schools around the country start the rebuilding process with their teams. It’s no different for Ryan Noel and the Holton boys basketball team. Gone to graduation are a number of key players from last season, including two prolific scorers (Garett Beecher and Trey...
Holton's Vern Miller (shown above) tees off on hole number one at HCC to kick off championship competition in the member/guest tournament on Sunday. Miller and his partner, Steve Hastert, would go on to win the event for the second year in a row.
  In spite of heavy rains early in the week, the past weekend turned out to be pretty agreeable for the 144 golfers competing in the Holton Country Club’s 30th annual member/guest tournament. When it was over, this year’s tournament saw no changes at the top of the leaderboard as Holton’s Vern...
Cobra Trista Reed (shown above, at left) sets up her teammates for an offensive attack during recent summer volleyball action. While coach Kaylee Mick noted there were some nerves on the first night, she said the team quickly settled in and realized what it could do.
  One former Wildcat is getting set to take her chances in the Cobra pit as HHS alumnus Kaylee Mick (’11) recently accepted the head volleyball coaching position at Jackson Heights High School. Growing up with a fondness for both volleyball and softball and seeing how the sports could shape young...
Panther running back Garrett Schultz (shown above, middle) works his way up the gym floor while his teammates run through their blocking schemes during Royal Valley's recent camp.
  It may be difficult to think about football season with the summer months just setting in, but that’s exactly what the Royal Valley High School team was doing last week as the Panthers got together for their summer camp. While some inclement weather (heavy rain) during the week threw a wrench in...
Holton's Indie Allen (shown above) takes a flying leap at the end of the triple jump runway, soaring into the pit during one of his attempts in the finals. Allen ended up taking fourth in the event, walking away from his final high school meet with a state medal.
  Even in taking just a small group of athletes to the state track meet in Wichita, the Wildcats of Holton managed to pull off something pretty special this weekend. The HHS girls had four athletes competing in four events, one of those being a relay, at the Class 4A state track meet and every one...
Cobra Mason Hamilton (shown above, at right) hands the baton off to teammate Korby Strube (left) during a preliminary race of the 4x400m relay at state track in Wichita this past weekend.
  For the positive results the youth movement has yielded for the Jackson Heights track team this spring, with a number of freshmen and sophomores qualifying for state track this past weekend, the final meet of the season was highlighted by some senior moments. Going in, it looked like veteran...
  Jackson County’s six state medals earned over the weekend were just a drop in a pretty full bucket as the Big Seven, Northeast Kansas and Twin Valley leagues had a fruitful trip to Wichita for the state track meet. Among the Wetmore and Atchison County schools, four athletes walked away with...
Team members for JHHS who will be going to the state track meet in Wichita are pictured above and include (front row, left to right) Abby Williams, manager Grace Bowhay, Kaitlynn Little, Lexi Proffitt, Erika White, Aidan Allen, Peter Rupnicki, (back row, left to right) Braden Dohl, Dalton Chartier, Mason Hamilton, Westin Jacobsen, Korby Strube, Wyatt Olberding, Jason Parker and Seth Holliday.
  By all measurable marks, this track season has far and away been a success for the Jackson Heights team. On top of the collective success earned by having one of the largest squads in the county, the Cobras saw that equaled at the individual level in last Friday’s regional at Washington. In total...
Holton's Ashlyn Weilert (shown above, front left) steadies the blocks as teammate Kimmi Snepp fires out of them at the start of her preliminary heat in the 200m dash at regionals in Hoyt. Snepp made the finals and ended up qualifying for state in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay.
  It’s hard to imagine a regional track meet being on par with state as far as level of difficulty is concerned, but last Friday’s Class 4A regional in Hoyt may have come as close as possible in replicating that state-caliber competition. Truth be told, some events did in fact have the top four...
  Considering the hurdles the Holton golf team has had to overcome this season, what was another one to leap over in Big Seven league competition at Lake Perry on Wednesday? With the heavy rain from the past week, the Wildcats and the rest of the league competition had some hazards to be wary of,...
