Even in last year’s banner season, Hoisington was tested early in the year but an athletic Phillipsburg team. Friday night history tried repeating itself as the Cardinals looked to open another season at 4-0. The Panthers scored the first 14 points in a bid to spoil Homecoming, but it was the Cardinals cruising in the second half to a 42-21 win.
With one loss on the season, Bishop Carroll Volleyball is the fifth ranked team in 5A. The Golden Eagles are led by one of the best players in Kansas, in senior outside hitter and setter Ella Larkin, who will look to end her high school career leading her team to her fourth straight trip to the state tournament this season.
The cross country season is in full swing and Taylor Briggs, one of the best girls high school runners in state history, is poised to cap off her career winning her fourth straight 4A state title for Chapman High School.
The KSHSAA will utilize three sites for state cross country meets to be held on Saturday, October 31, including two new championship venues. Consistent with risk mitigation efforts, a third site was added to reduce the number of runners at each venue and allow for more time between races.
