Members of the All-County volleyball team are pictured above and include (front row, from left to right) Megan Rhule (HHS), Courtney Boswell (HHS), Ashlyn Weilert (HHS), Ali Bryan (RVHS), (back row, left to right) Katelin Strube (JHHS), Hannah Williams (JHHS), Hayley Thompson (HHS), Macy Putnam (RVHS) and Kate Hanson (RVHS).
  Jackson County volleyball teams may not have been playing on the final weekend of competition this fall, but that didn’t detract from three pretty good seasons all-around. Holton, Jackson Heights and Royal Valley all finished in the top half of their league standings this season. In fact, the...
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...

Panthers Kate Hanson (shown above, at left) and Sarah Beam (back right) look on as teammate Macy Putnam returns a serve in league competition against Holton on Tuesday night. Royal Valley fought to the end in each set, but Holton was able to pick up the sweep on its home court.

Cobra Hannah Williams (shown above, at right) blocks a ball back onto Oskaloosa's side of the net during a match on Tuesday. Williams was a force in the middle and helped JHHS sweep both McLouth and Oskaloosa in the home matches.
  Since a big breakthrough at the Lyndon tournament more than two weeks ago, the Jackson Heights volleyball team has been stuck in a rut. To be fair, the Cobras have also faced three of the top four teams in the Northeast Kansas League in their matches following that tournament, but the coaches and...
