Written by Staff Wednesday, 10 September 2008 05:52Friday’s football game between Hillsboro High School and Smoky Valley will be played in Lindsborg after all.
It was discovered Wednesday morning (Sept. 10) that the crane that was on site at Reimer Field in Hillsboro was insufficient to erect the new light poles, and a bigger one will be needed.
As a result, Reimer Field will not be ready to host an evening football game by Friday.
Instead, the game, with kickoff set for 7 p.m., will be played on the Bethany College campus, which has...
Written by AO Saturday, 06 September 2008 15:04The Hillsboro High School volleyball team trounced every opponent--though not all comers--at the sixth annual Mid Central Activities Association pre-season volleyball tournament in Marion Saturday, defeating Lyons (25-7, 25-21), Collegiate (25-22, 25-20), Ellinwood (25-19, 25-21) and Hesston (25-21, 25-20) without dropping a single game to reach the championship round. Haven won a game, but the Trojans won the match (25-14, 16-25, 25-23) on a thunderous spike by Dakota Kaufman.
Haven more than made a match of it after Hillsboro steamrolled the Wildcats in the first game of the championship series. With the second game knotted at 8-all, and then 12-all, and then 16-all, Haven rattled off nine consecutive points, robbing Hillsboro of its...
Written by Don Ratzlaff Friday, 05 September 2008 17:51A game that turned into a shootout between two young squads ended when when the Hillsboro Trojans stuffed Sacred Heart’s live-or-die bullet in the final seconds to escape with a dramatic 35-34 win Friday (Sept. 5) in Salina.
The Knights appeared to the Trojans dead in their sights when they cashed in on 10-play, 54-yard touchdown drive in the final 4 minutes of the game to pull within a point at 35-34 with 41 seconds left in the contest. But on the 2-point conversion attempt, the Trojans front line stepped up and stopped running back Colby Wetter a yard from the goal line to preserve the victory.
In the early going, it appeared the Knights would have their way with the Trojans, using a no-huddle offense to march up and down the field...
Written by Andrew Ottoson Friday, 05 September 2008 17:49Marion High School football team began their season with a 21-6 win at Lyons, and breathed a collective sigh of relief when the final horn sounded. After one truly forgettable first half, the Warriors trailed Lyons 6-0 after numerous bad penalties allowed the Lions to sustain a drive into the red zone. The Warriors forced an apparent stop--the third apparent stop of the drive, and fourth of the half--and looked to have held the hosts to a field goal when holder Brennan Clark turned a low snap sow's ear into a silk purse touchdown run around the right side of the Marion field goal defense. Lyons missed the point after.
Marion regrouped during halftime and smacked Lyons in the mouth during the first series of the third quarter, driving...
