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.

  By all measurable marks, this track season has far and away been a success for the Jackson Heights team.

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.
