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...
Jackson Heights' Katelin Strube (shown above, middle left) fights to control a rebound in Friday's game against Immaculata. The Cobras stayed intense throughout on the way to a 48-32 victory.
  If there was one word to summarize the Jackson Heights girls basketball team in their opening game, a 48-32 victory, at home against Immaculata, “intense” would certainly fit the bill. At the very least, it was an adjective head coach Dan Shupe was very happy to use in describing his team’s...
  With some large, strong senior classes being lost to graduation last spring, this season could certainly be qualified as a rebuilding one for most of the Jackson County football teams. Royal Valley was adapting to a coaching change, Jackson Heights was adapting to a string of injuries and Holton...
Panther Joe Cullen (shown above, left) slashes to the basket during a drill at a recent RVHS practice focused on transitional offense and defense.
  In the past two seasons, the Royal Valley boys basketball team has been knocking on the door of some next level success. A year after an upset victory that pushed them into the sub-state semifinals, the Panthers followed that up by coming one win short of reaching the state tournament last season...
Jackson Heights' Lane Holliday (shown above, left) launches a shot over teammate Westin Jacobsen as new head coach Chris Brown (back middle) looks on and works to teach his team during  a recent practice.
  For the Jackson Heights boys, there may be some bonds even stronger than basketball holding the team together this season. Richter, Olberding, Jacobsen, Thomas and Holliday; all of these are familiar names to fans and supporters of Cobra basketball. Now, it is time for some younger brothers to...
Wildcat Parker Sides (shown above, left) tries to close off the lane as teammate Cole Lehwald drives towards the basket at a recent practice. With just two returning starters, a lot of players like Sides and Lehwald are looking to make an impact on this year's team.
  Stop me if you’ve heard this one before:  The Holton boys basketball team is under the gun with the start of the season rapidly approaching. With the success of the football team, it has almost become de rigueur for the basketball squad to be playing catch-up in late November and early December....
Wildcat Shari Riley (shown above, front right) passes out of the double team of teammates Quinn Holaday (middle right) and Courtney Boswell (middle) as the Wildcats worked through their offense at a recent practice.
  As HHS girls basketball coach Jon Holliday has been noted to say about his team’s success through the years, it’s the same song, just a different verse. The how doesn’t change too much, just the why and the who behind the success. Last year was more of the same, despite having a very young group...
Royal Valley's Kate Hanson (shown above, right) and Bella Thompson (middle) fight for a loose ball as the Panthers worked on their pressure defense during a recent practice.
  After a very successful fall sports season for the Lady Panthers, it’s no surprise the Royal Valley girls basketball program will be trying to build off that this winter. For the girls on the volleyball team that took third at state and even for those not on the team, RV coach Corey Katzer said...
Cobra Brianna Cattrell (shown above, far left) fights for a rebound with Shelby Zule while teammate Kate Lierz (middle) also looks to get into the mix at recent practice.
  If practice makes perfect, then the Jackson Heights girls basketball team is certainly headed in the right direction entering the 2014-2015 season. The Cobras have brought a workmanlike attitude to practices so far this season, focusing on the task at hand, and head coach Dan Shupe said that...
  Some area youth teams recently ended the fall slate with a bang, such as the Jackson Heights fifth and sixth-grade tackle football team. The Cobras competed in the Topeka YMCA Tackle Football League where they finished 3-4 overall in the regular season before roaring through the playoff field on...
