Time playing together, both in school and the summer months,  is serving Holton's Garett Beecher (shown above, right) and Trey Tanking (left) well in their senior season.
  Batman had Robin. Johnny Carson had Ed McMahon. Paul McCartney had John Lennon. Michael Jordan had Scottie Pippen. The list goes on and on. In the annals of history, there is no shortage of notable pairs who achieved great things together. As far as Holton High School’s history is concerned,...
Holton's Shay Tanking (shown above, second from left) pulls up for a shot in the middle of the lane during the second half of the Wildcats' league showdown with Royal Valley. Tanking had a key basket off a steal late, as Holton's defense helped it pick up a 49-44 victory over Royal Valley.
  For the second time in as many games, the Holton girls had to sweat out a win on the basketball court and even trailed for almost the entire second half before pulling off the comeback and securing a 49-44 win over county rival Royal Valley on Friday. When the going got tough, the Wildcats relied...
  As Holton coach Ryan Noel put it, there were several reasons the boys basketball team could have packed it in and turned in a sub-par performance in their last game before the Christmas break at Riverside last Friday. It may have looked like the Wildcats were heading that way early after falling...
Holton's Kyler Tannahill (shown above, top) gets position on his opponent to set up a pin in one of the matches in the Wildcats' dual against Jeff West. Tannahill was one of several young wrestlers to turn in strong performances in the double dual at HHS.
  For a Holton wrestling team that went 4-1 in a dual tournament with several 5A and 6A teams to start the season, with its only loss coming by two points to the top-ranked team in Class 4A (Chanute), any minor strides forward would have been enough to make its next opponents wary. Add in the fact...
Wildcat Ashlyn Weilert (shown above, right) launches a three in the second half of last Friday's game against Atchison County. Weilert and the rest of the HHS team had a strong offensive showing on the way to a 63-50 victory.
  When you’re hot, you’re hot and compared to the first two games of the season, the Lady Wildcats were practically scorching on the offensive end in Friday’s basketball game at Atchison County. After a blazing start in which Holton scored nearly as many points (38) in the first half as it did in...
HHS tight end Nils Bergsten (shown above, right) lays out for a block in order to spring RB Luis Butto (left) for a big run in the sectional game against Columbus. Butto had an impressive night for Holton, finishing with 145 total rushing yards and one touchdown on 14 carries, but the Wildcats came up just short in a 22-21 loss.
  Football, as has been stated an immeasurable number of times, is a game of inches and that very much proved to be the case in Holton’s sectional showdown in Columbus on Friday. Holding a six-point lead with a little over 13 seconds left in the game, the Wildcat defense forced the Titans into a...
