HHS hurdler Holly Karn (shown above) soars over one hurdle during the 100m race at the Holton Invitational on Tuesday. Karn got off to a good start this season, setting personal records and taking first in both the 100m and 300m hurdles at the Wildcats' home meet.
  For the Holton track team, Tuesday’s home meet was a very good start as the boys and girls both finished third overall led by some strong individual performances. “As a team, where our numbers are at, I thought we competed real well,” HHS coach Mark Middlemist said. “Our numbers probably aren’t...
  Royal Valley’s season opener on the softball diamond wasn’t short on fireworks as the offense flowed in Wamego last Thursday in a doubleheader the Panthers would end up splitting with the Red Raiders. The visitors from Hoyt wasted no time in getting the hit parade going as Sarah Beam delivered an...
Wildcat Luis Butto (shown above) gets a hold of a pitch and puts it in play during the first game of Holton's home doubleheader against Falls City to start the season. Butto came through with a big RBI double to help HHS start the season with an 8-2 victory over the Tigers.
  Holton had two very different games in a home doubleheader against Fall City (Neb.) to start the baseball season on Saturday, though the Wildcats started things off on the right foot. Starting pitcher Justin Rieschick, who HHS coach Joe Purcell said was in solid early season form, cruised through...
Panther Hayden Fenske (shown above, at left) slides safely into third base during the first game of a doubleheader against Clay Center on Monday. Fenske and his teammates put together a strong all-around effort, especially in the sixth inning, to pick up a 10-4 victory over the Tigers.
  “Textbook” would be a good word to describe how Royal Valley baseball’s home opener went against Clay Center on Monday. After coach Scott Ternes said he felt his team would have a chance to win some close games this season if it just hung around, the Panthers went out and proved his point as they...
Holton's Hayden May (shown above) tees off during a practice round earlier this spring. With a wide open competition to fill the varsity roster, according to coach Don Swisher, May and any other number of Wildcats could contribute to the team this spring.
  It may not be 11 straight, but with Holton High School’s golf team entering the season as three-time defending league champs there’s room to draw comparisons to a very successful Kansas basketball program. Like the Jayhawks, the HHS wildcats seem to reload rather than rebuild, though Holton has a...
  This past weekend, the first of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, was nuts, but for an entirely different reason than usual. The lack of major upsets meant the second and third round of the tourney was like a Mounds candy bar. Some teams can make you feel like a nut. This year, very few...
With the conclusion of the high school basketball season last weekend, several leagues released their All-League teams this week and the Big Seven and Twin Valley leagues were among those groups. Multiple Wildcats and Panthers made it onto the Big Seven All-League roster and a handful of Cardinals...
Jackson Heights' Lane Slocum (shown above, at right) goes up for a put back in a Class 2A state quarterfinal game against Central Plains, but it wasn't quite enough as the Cobras fell to the Oilers 67-42.
  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...
