Holton senior Lucas Lovvorn (shown above, on top) works on pinning his opponent in regional competition last weekend. After a dominant showing in Baldwin, Lovvorn is eyeing a second straight individual state title in Salina this weekend.
  Champions aren’t born, they’re made, though when it comes to Holton High School senior wrestler Lucas Lovvorn, the son of Mike and Kim Lovvorn of Holton, the case could be made for both schools of thought. Already a 15-year veteran of the sport, Lovvorn seemingly had little choice whether he...
Wildcat Trey Tanking (shown above, at right) cuts to the basket for two of his 23 points in last Friday's key 68-58 victory over Nemaha Central.
  In the eyes of Holton boys basketball coach Ryan Noel, Friday’s final home game against Nemaha Central was a fitting farewell for his seniors. For a group with so much success on the basketball court in its four years at HHS, getting over the hump in a close 68-58 win over Nemaha Central was the...
Holton's Taryn Weilert (shown above, at right) pulls up for a jumper in the second half of a game against Riverside last Friday. While defense sparked HHS early, the offense opened up in the second half as Weilert and seemingly every player who entered the game for Holton hit some shots on the way to a 60-26 victory.
  With a rare bye in the middle of last week, HHS coach Jon Holliday got a chance to turn up the intensity of practices for the girls basketball team. That “boot camp,” as he put it, clearly paid off for the Wildcats in Friday’s match-up at home against Riverside. Not that Holton had been slacking...
Wildcat Nils Bergsten (shown above, middle) cuts to the basket for an easy two points in the second half of Friday's league battle against Sabetha. Bergsten picked a good time to have a career-high 16 points, but it still wasn't quite enough as Sabetha weathered Holton's late rally and held on for a 55-52 victory.
  From the opening moments of Friday’s league match-up between the Holton and Sabetha boys, it looked like fans might be in for a shoot-out befitting a game between the second-ranked team in Class 3A and the eighth-ranked team in Class 4A-DII. The teams traded threes on their opening possessions...
Wildcat Spencer Baum (shown above, back) cradles his opponent in an early round at the Sadowski Invitational tournament this past Saturday in an attempt to get a pin. Baum was one of seven Holton wrestlers to make the finals, helping the team to a second-place finish overall.
  In the middle of the long high school wrestling season, teams are sure to deal with some bumps and bruises that will lead to personnel hiccups at different times. Holton is not immune, as the Wildcat wrestlers are currently dealing with some illness and injury that limited the team to entering...
