In between, Tabor hosted Southwestern Saturday.
Despite the weather, the Bluejays picked up four KCAC wins last week and improved to 10-6 in the conference and 16-22 overall.
“It’s been a great week,” coach Suzanne Unruh said. “The players have really stepped up and have played super tough. Getting a sweep from any team we play in our conference is huge.”

Halstead—With Sterling’s CKTL meet canceled last Tuesday, the Warriors traveled Friday to Halstead for the Conrad Nightingale Invitational.

The Warrior boys claimed first place among 15 schools with 86 points ahead of Berean Academy (81) and Hutchinson-Trinity (76).
The boys were aided by a number of top-three finishes. Earning gold medals were: Nick Meyer in discus (140 feet, 11 inches), James Jones in the triple jump (42-8.5) and Zach Hammond in pole...

Written by Janae Rempel Tuesday, 23 April 2013 12:55The Tabor baseball team remained one game behind KCAC leader Sterling after splitting two doubleheaders with the Warriors last week.
“It was an outstanding series,” coach Mark Standiford said. “Sterling is a very good team, and both teams played well. I am disappointed in the split; we were hoping to take three of four. So now we do not control our destiny.”
Sterling—After weather caused the first doubleheader at Sterling to be rescheduled later in the week, Tabor hosted the Warriors Saturday. The Bluejays (20-4, 30-12) defeated the Sterling (21-3, 39-11), 8-7, in Game 1.

Sedgwick—Marion dropped both games to Sedgwick Tuesday, 13-2 and 8-7.
In Game 1, Sedgwick took control early by scoring 10 runs to Marion’s one in the opening inning.
