Lady Cardinals (from left to right, above) McKayla Henry, Rylian Martin, Myrna Crismas and Liz Hutfles take off at the start of the Class 1A girls race at the state meet in Wamego last Saturday. Both the boys and girls for Wetmore finished in the top 10 of the team standings in Class 1A state competition.
  Wetmore cross country wrapped up the 2015 season by taking all of its boys and girls to the Class 1A state meet in Wamego this past weekend and holding its own amongst some tough competition. Aaron Achten was the only individual runner to claim a state medal, taking fifth in the boys race, but...
  At present, no team may be more aptly named than the Kansas City Royals. Pick your regal metaphor and it makes sense, whether you prefer to think that KC was crowned champs on Sunday night or that they ascended to their rightful throne after a 7-2 victory over the New York Mets wrapped up the...
Jackson Heights' Wyatt Roles (shown above, middle) lunges into the backfield to make a stop in the second half of the team's regular season finale against Valley Heights. Roles and the rest of the defensive line came up big for JHHS last Thursday, helping the team pick up a 24-6 victory over the Mustangs.
  Thursday night’s district battle between the Jackson Heights and Valley Heights football teams proved to be a war of attrition. In the end, despite a sloppy first half, the Cobras were able to wear down the Mustangs and pull away for a 24-6 victory. With the Mustangs’ season on the line, the...
Holton's Bryson Patch (shown above, bottom left) dives forward to grab an interception off a tipped pass late in Friday's game against Perry-Lecompton. After some early trouble, HHS dominated the final three quarters on the way to a 28-6 victory over the Kaws.
  Like an actual Wildcat, the Holton football team showed its claws after being backed into a corner early in Friday night’s district football game against Perry-Lecompton. The Kaws drove inside the Holton 10-yard line twice in their first two possessions, but the HHS defense held its opponent to...
  With regional and sub-state competition held over the weekend, teams from Wetmore and ACCHS had to bring their “A” game. Most of them did, too, as the Cardinals and Tigers had a good deal of success this past week. In regional cross country action, Saturday was marked by a number of outstanding...
Wildcat Holly Karn (shown above, middle) gets up and slams an errant pass back over the net during a semifinal match against Jeff West during the sub-state tournament on Saturday. Karn and the rest of the seniors made some major contributions for HHS, but the team couldn't quite get past Hayden in the finals.
  Holton’s volleyball team certainly had a daunting task if it wanted to make it to the Class 4A-DII state tournament, as it hosted top-ranked Topeka Hayden in sub-state competition on Saturday. Holton had no cakewalk getting to that match-up either, as the team started tournament play against a...
  This weekend, all three Jackson County volleyball teams will make their postseason push as sub-state competition starts on Saturday. For Holton (23-12), a spot at the Class 4A-Division II state tournament is just two wins away and the team will have the added bonus of home field advantage,...
  For much of the season, the Royal Valley boys cross country team has been chasing down plenty of tough competition, focusing in particular on Big Seven foes Hiawatha and Sabetha. The Panthers finally caught up to their prey and pounced at the league meet in Perry on Thursday, as the RVHS boys...
Cobra Zane Richter (shown above, middle) meets an Onaga running back head-on for a stop in the second half of Friday's district football game. Richter helped fuel the team's strong defensive effort in the second half as JHHS pulled away for a 46-8 victory.
  It may not have been perfect, but the Jackson Heights football team overcame some early struggles to close out its homecoming game strong on the way to a 46-8 victory over Onaga on Friday. From the way the game started, it actually seemed the Cobras would face little resistance from the Buffalos...
Holton golfer Cali Smith (shown above) tries to tap a putt in during competition in Topeka earlier this season. Smith and the rest of the Wildcats turned in some of their top scores in regional competition last week, coming just a few strokes short of qualifying for state as a team.
  Compared to last year, any outcome at the regional tournament would have been better for the Holton girls golf team. Last fall, the Wildcats slogged through some miserable weather that greatly affected the team’s final results. It was a night and day difference in Meriden on Tuesday, as Holton...
