Sub-State

The Holton High School football players celebrate a come-from-behind 23-22 victory over Columbus in the sub-state round of the playoffs, which earned them a spot in the 4A-DII state championship game.
  Nobody can say Friday’s 4A-DII sub-state contest between Holton and Columbus was lacking for drama, as for the second year in a row one yard and one point were the only things separating the winner and the loser. The stakes were admittedly higher this time around, with a spot in the state...
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,...
Holton's Garett Beecher (shown above, middle) tries to maneuver around an Atchison defender in the 4A-DII sub-state championship game in Hoyt. Beecher went over the 1,000-point milestone for his career in the game, but the Wildcats came just short of making it back to the 4A-DII state tournament in a 67-63 loss to the Redmen.
  After narrowly missing out on a match-up at the midseason Tonganoxie Invitational basketball tournament, it seemed like the Holton and Atchison boys were on a collision course when it came to sub-state competition. The fifth and eighth-ranked teams in Class 4A-DII, respectively, met in Saturday’s...
Wildcats Sarah Sweet (shown above, middle) and Hayley Thompson (right) fight for a rebound while teammate Courtney Boswell (left) looks on in the sub-state championship game against Jeff West. Rebounding was an advantage for the Tigers and helped the team hold off a late rally from Holton on the way to a 35-26 victory.
  As well as everything went for the Holton girls on offense in Friday’s sub-state semifinal game, things quickly turned sour for the Wildcats in Saturday’s championship game against Jeff West. The Wildcats still flashed that trademark defensive intensity, which kept the team in the game in the...
Cobra Korby Strube (shown above, at right) launches a three-point attempt in the second half of Monday's game against McLouth. Strube poured in 17 points in the game to help Heights pick up a 77-40 victory over the Bulldogs.
  Moving into postseason play, Jackson Heights boys basketball coach Chris Brown said one of the most important things for his team was to understand the sudden death implications of sub-state competition. If Tuesday’s sub-state contest at home against McLouth was any indication, then the message...
Jackson Heights' Aidan Allen (shown above, second from right) leaps up to collect a rebound early in Tuesday's first round game against Bishop Seabury. The Cobras got off to a hot start and picked up a 48-26 victory over the Seahawks.
  Early in Tuesday’s sub-state opener, the Jackson Heights girls basketball team seemed to catch lightning in a bottle. The Cobras were swarming the Seahawks of Bishop Seabury early and players like Payton Thomas and Jordan Wells helped the team assert itself in the post while storming out to a 19-...
