Golf: HHS Golf played at the Sacred Heart Invitational at the Salina Municipal Golf Course on Thursday, April 15.

Six teams were eligible for team scores. Hillsboro came in 5th with a total of 402 points.

Junior Frank Wichert did well with a total score of 88.

“I am very proud of Frank. This was his career low round to date and his first time breaking into the 80s. That is generally a big milestone and often leads to a huge confidence boost. The nice thing is that he has identified just a few little things to improve on that can save him several more strokes per round. I believe his game is moving in a very positive direction,” said head coach Scott O’Hare.

Senior Paul Glanzer had a score of 102 and junior Eli Dalke came in with a 105.

“At this point the others are struggling to post numbers that they are capable of. All five of them have developed decent swings that can produce solid golf shots. The biggest issues at this point are consistency, club selection, and course management. These things will be a big focus for us over the next several weeks,” said O’Hare.

The coach has a plan for the next meet and is pleased with the way his team is listening to his instruction.

“They all need to develop the ability to consistently swing the club to make solid strikes, identify the distances they are hitting each club on average, and then learning how to recover from bad shots to reduce the damage. I am proud of how all of our golfers are working to improve. They have been very coachable and enthusiastic about working to get better,” said O’Hare.

Track: HHS hosted the CKTL track meet on Tuesday, April 13. Six teams participated including Berean Academy, Sterling, Sedgwick, Goessel and Douglass. Hillsboro took 3rd for both the girls and the boys.

Softball: The Hillsboro Softball team swept Remington last week, 21-7 and 16-6. Both games were big offensive showings for the Trojans.

In the first game, Hillsboro broke free of Remington in the fourth inning when they went up 7-2 before adding three runs in the fifth and a whopping 11 in the sixth.

Skylre Stucky led the way with four hits and five RBI on offense for the game. Reese Hefley pitched in three hits as did Anslee Brewer.

In the second game, Hillsboro wasted no time and got up 6-2 in the first inning. They played Remington to a stalemate in the second inning, but then poured in seven runs over the next three innings to take a healthy lead, 13-6. Three runs in the seventh gave them the final margin of victory, 16-3.

Hefley had two hits and three RBI to led the way offensively while Kori Arnold led the way pitching, going all seven innings and striking out five Remington batters.



Track: Marion High School hosted the Marion CKTL meet on Tuesday, April 13. Six teams participated including Halstead, Inman, Lyons, Hesston, Herrington and Marion. Marion came in 6th place for both girls and boys.

“Man, what a tough meet but what a great meet to participate in. By the end of the meet the weather was pretty brutal. Our workers do a great job of hosting this meet and it seems that it just keeps getting tougher every year,” said head coach Grant Thierolf.

The Warrior girls were led in scoring by Anne Baliel, who placed second in the pole vault and second in the 200M.

“She is still getting her timing down in the vault, so she didn’t go as high as she would have liked but it is early. Abigail had another solid day for us in the jumps and ran a very good 200M in some challenging conditions. Grayce ran well and continues to get better at the 400 in the 4x400M relay. Mckinnon had a good day, just missing on some points in the shot and discus but getting a place with a PR in the javelin throw. Heidi ran a solid leg for us in the 4x400M relay and will add to her workload in the next meet. Gabby did a nice job in the 100M hurdles and will add the 300M hurdles in the next meet. Amber Miller had a good day, posting two PRs in her events. She is working hard to get better and it is nice to see improvement,” said Thierolf.

The Warrior boys were led by their two seniors with Todd Palic placing first in the javelin and second in the discus.

“He is off to a good start and will only get better as the season goes along. Burton Harshman was on the way to a very good meet when he came up with an injury in the triple jump. We hope to get him back in a couple of weeks and look forward to his leadership and coaching ability in the next couple of weeks. Chance Shults had his best day of the year in the pole vault. He and Campbell Winter give us a chance to score points in the vault and in the hurdles at each meet and they will just continue to get better as they improve their technique. I was really pleased with our two young distance runners. Tristen Dye raced a great race in the 800M, staying with the first group all the way through the race. Big Time Run! Christopher Beery ran well in his heat of the 1600M and then gutted out an uncomfortable 3200M Solid day for those two. Jonathan Frese ran a pretty good 200M, he had the fastest time by a freshman and will work to build that speed in the coming weeks,” said Thierolf.

The Warriors will compete at Halstead on April 23.
