It is the most wonderful time of the year…Yep, it is Signing Day!

O

kay, I know, it is also the holiday season of Thanksgiving and Christmas. (By the way, doesn’t it seem like we have forgotten all about Thanksgiving and gone right from Halloween to Christmas?) I want to focus on Thanksgiving because it also corresponds to my other favorite time of the year - Signing Day, the day we thank the accomplishments of student athletes by letting them continue their athletic and academic careers through scholarship awards. You are probably all tired of this yearly bandwagon I jump on but I cannot think of a more important thing that VYPE does than recognizing kids who are able to use their athletic abilities to further their education and prepare them for life after sports. As a reminder, less than one percent of all high school

Douglass girls (from left) Emily Nahr, Bayley Nispel, Samantha O’Neill, Maressah Milum.

Bulldog seniors (from left) Drew Chadic, Cody Holthaus, Chase Bannister, John Gardner.

and college athletes are able to make sports (at least on the playing field) a career. The other 99 percent use athletics to help them go to college and prepare to become doctors, lawyers, CEO’s, carpenters, entrepreneurs, philanthropist and other careers that make a positive impact on our world. So, when you look through the pages of our annual Basketball Preview, make sure you take some time to look at all the kids VYPE is recognizing for their signings. Whether they have decided to go to a junior college or a D1 university, they have all

made a commitment to better themselves and make an impact on the world outside of athletics. We all should be proud of them, their parents and everyone else who have helped them achieve this goal; coaches, administrators, teachers, etc. As usual, I also like to recognize those schools that go above and beyond in terms of the effort they put into recognizing their kids. Doug Carr at Andover Central always stands out. Take a look at the column I did last year about this time. It details Coach Carr’s commitment. Others like Maize South, Kapaun Mt. Carmel (10 signees the week of 11/11), Buhler, Bishop Carroll and many others also do wonderful jobs with signing activities. To recap, what makes a great signing activity? •

Prepare a date and time in advance and let people know about it (Including VYPE)

Invite the entire student body or as much as possible

Allow coaches to talk about the kid

Highlight where the kid is going to college and what they are pursuing as a major

Treats!

Switching gears, but not by much, I want to recognize another school for their commitment to student athlete recognition. For the first time in my seven years of VYPE, we were invited to a preseason press conference with coaches and players from Douglass High. Let me say that again, A PRESEASON PRESS CONFERENCE! I mean, this was the real deal; held in a room that looked like it was built for press conferences, seats for press, seats for coaches, a background with Douglass High logos and sponsor logos (Mid America Orthopedic which is also a VYPE sponsor) and the opportunity to not only interview coaches but also student athletes! It was fantastic! When I asked their AD, Jason Menard, the boys’ coach, Ty Unrau, and the girls’ coach Jason Wilson “why” they did this, their answer was exactly what I was hoping for - ”We did it for the kids!” They used words like exposure, hype, preparation (for the next level), discipline and teamwork. You can read all about their responses to the press questions in their profile. But on this page, VYPE says, THANK YOU!

that they had even mentioned me during their interview and made me feel so proud of them as they always do. So again, thank you for your work in recognizing our local athletes. You made “our” senior year even more special and brought tears of joy to this mom’s eyes.  The surgery was successful and is now in my past, but the smile on my face from that VYPE issue will remain far into the future. On a side note, I just have to tell you that I am so proud but still surprised to be the mom of athletes.  I was NEVER athletic, and am still in awe of their skills.  Taylor was a state qualifier in tennis this year and Toby went to the state meets for cross country and track in the past as well. Sincerely, Carla VanCleave Thank you Clara for being a great mom and a VYPE fan! And more importantly, on behalf of the entire VYPE Community, we wish you a speedy and full recovery!

My twins (Toby and Taylor VanCleave ) were one of the sets highlighted in your twin issue. Taylor and Toby VanCleave Shortly before they were selected, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor that would require surgery.  When I learned they would be featured in the September issue, I knew I really had something to look forward to after my surgery date.  It gave me something positive to think about during a difficult time and it really touched my heart when they brought me home a copy during my recovery.  I was surprised to see

COMMUNITY ATHLETES OF THE MONTH

Jami Reichenberger, Bishop Carroll JAEDYN LEDESMA , WELLINGTON H.S.

Jaedyn is a senior at Wellington High School and will be a three-sport athlete for four years when she graduates in May, competing in cross country,

basketball and track. She played football as an eighth-grader and caught a TD pass against Mulvane. Jaedyn was crowned Homecoming Queen this

year, finished second in the league cross country meet, sixth at regionals and 22nd at the 4A state meet. She carries a 3.36 grade point average and has

been accepted at the University of Kansas where she plans to major in Athletic Training, with a minor in Nutrition. Jaedyn is very active in the BIGS in School program at Wellington, which is a smaller version of Big Brothers Big Sisters.

She also volunteers at the Wellington Recreation Center as a youth basketball coach. Jaedyn helped organize and start a non-profit group called Momentum

Movement that raises funds for those less fortunate. They recently presented woman battling cancer a check for $1,500 from a bake sale to use to fulfill a wish on her bucket list.

Davis-Moore Chevrolet is proud to be the presenting sponsor for VYPE Magazine’s Community Athletes of the Month! Davis -Moore Chevrolet understands that success in high school athletics is not only measured by what happens on the field. What student athletes accomplish off the field by volunteering within the community is as important as what they accomplish on the field and deserves the same recognition. Each month, Davis-Moore Chevrolet will recognize two area student athletes that excel within the community through volunteer work, charitable work and community involvement.

W

hen Jami Reichenberger went diving for a soccer ball during a training session last January, the last thing she expected was to suffer an injury that would cause her to miss the first three weeks of the 2013 season. But, that’s exactly what happened when the ball smacked into the tip of Reichenberger’s left thumb at the wrong angle, causing a broken thumb for the Bishop Carroll sophomore. The injury took place on Jan. 18. Reichenberger, the daughter of Ron and Joni Reichenberger, was slated

to be Bishop Carroll’s starting goalkeeper for the 2013 season, but all that was put on hold once x-rays showed the broken thumb. The x-rays were forwarded to Dr. Prince Chan of the Kansas Orthopaedic Center, who saw Jami in his KOC office three days later. An hour-long surgery was performed by Dr. Chan on that same day – Jan. 21. “He had to go in and insert three pins to put the bones together,” said Joni Reichenberger. “She spent four weeks with the pins in and then had a couple different casts on her hand.” Jami missed the first three weeks of the season, which included practice and the season-opener against Emporia.

But, after the two-month rehabilitation, she was back in goal for the rest of the season. Joni said the care provided by Dr. Chan and the staff at Kansas Orthopaedic Center was “fabulous.” “From the time we walked in until we were released in March,” Joni said. “Once (Jami) thought she felt the pins move. They took a look at it immediately and got it checked out. They were very good, very attentive and answered all our questions.” Jami will start her third season as the Golden Eagles’ goalkeeper this spring and hopes to eventually play college soccer. She also played volleyball as a freshman and sophomore at Bishop Carroll.

Parents, coaches, principles, teachers and fans can nominate a student athlete by contacting Mike Cooper at 316-218-3579 or mike.cooper@vype.com

Rugby

he goal of the Spartans Rugby Club is to introduce the world-wide game of rugby to the high school athletes in Wichita and the surrounding communities. The Spartans’ club, founded in January 2008, is open to teens from all Wichita and surrounding community high schools. The Spartans operate as part of USA Rugby. The Spartan coaches have been trained and certified by USA rugby. The object of the game is that two teams, each of fifteen players, scores as many points as possible by carrying, passing, kicking and grounding the ball. The wide variation of skills and physical requirements needed for the game mean there is an opportunity for athletes of every shape, size, and ability to participate at all levels. Rugby is a sport for men and women, boys and girls. It builds teamwork, understanding, cooperation and respect for fellow athletes. The goals of the Spartans Rugby Club are for safe competition, the pleasure of participating; the courage and skill which the game demands; the love of a team sport that enriches the lives of all involved; and the lifelong friendships forged through a shared interest in the game.

Specific objectives …

• Create a much-needed contact sport option for high school athletes. • Teach the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship, and good citizenship. • Develop a positive environment which brings teenagers, their families and friends closer together. • Continue to be competitive within the state Kansas. • Long-term, compete for State and National Championships, as well as have players move on and play at university and professional clubs in the US and around the world. Practices begin in November and games will start in March. A state tournament takes place each May with all the Kansas teams coming together for the opportunity to be named the best in Kansas. Contacts for the team are coaches Britton Harper and Wayne Janne. You can find our group on Facebook – Spartan Glory Spartan Rugby.

RUGBY

SPOTLIGHT Ross Gasper

Rugby has been a part of Wichita’s sporting tradition for 40 years now, and the Spartans program is the U-19 rugby club for the Greater Wichita area. Primarily comprised of high school aged players who live within an hour’s drive of Wichita, their matches are played in the Spring and Summer. This month, we feature current Spartans player Ross Gasper. Vitals: 5’9”, 195, 17 years

School: Southeast of Saline (Senior)

Number of years playing rugby: 2 years What made you decide to play rugby? “I had seen a few games on TV before and always thought it looked pretty interesting. When the season came around, and my close friend Konnor Thompson asked me if I wanted to go and start practicing with him and his rugby team in Wichita, I decided to go for it.” What is your greatest rugby memory so far? “So far, my favorite memory of rugby would have to be a practice from this past May. It had rained the night before, and the pitch was a complete mud pit. Of course, we practiced anyway. During a scrimmage portion of practice, whenever someone broke loose they would dive and slide across the try zone to score. Because it was so muddy, tackling was very difficult, so whoever was running the ball looked like an all-star.” What are your individual goals for the season ahead? What are the team goals? “My individual goal is to be a leader on the team. Most of our leaders from last year have moved up, so I want to step up and fill that role. The team goals are the same as always—recruit more athletes and win State.” On the men’s team (age 19+), the Barbarians: “They are a great group to be around, and they treat us like we are one of them. I have even enjoyed the opportunity to play with them during the summer in Sevens matches and this past fall in some of their B-side matches. Even though I would play different positions than what I was used to playing, they were able to teach me what I needed to know in order to play that spot.” Do you recommend rugby to other high-schoolers? “I definitely recommend it—learning a new sport like rugby is a blast. It may be really confusing at first, but once you understand the rules I can easily say that you will have the time of your life playing.” For more details on rugby in the Wichita metro area, visit www.wichitarugby.com, or search for “Spartan Glory Spartan Rugby” on Facebook, or just e-mail us at info@wichitarugby.com.

Setting a High Standard

“Any player that put on a South jersey must be at every practice. They must take care of their job as a student. Maximum effort would be required at every moment.”

Kendrian Elliott had a dominant freshman season, averaging 18 points and 13 rebounds a game.

South Girls the New Powerhouse By Matthew Browning

T

he first time Antwain Scales stepped into the South High gymnasium as the head coach of the girls’ basketball program, he sensed a feeling of failure among his players. This was a foreign concept for Scales, who played for the Titans during the Steve Eck glory years and was also a successful AAU coach. Not one game had been played, and yet the Lady Titans were already defeated. They figured they were going to lose and a new coach wasn’t going to change that. “The lack of confidence was overwhelming,” Scales said. “Those girls had never experienced winning before, so they had no reason to expect it now.” Scales knew the defeatist attitude went way deeper than basketball. Very few people held those young ladies accountable on or off the floor. Before Scales, players would miss practices unexcused. They wouldn’t stay eligible. They wouldn’t give effort. So discipline was what Scales instilled first. Any player that put on a South jersey must be at every practice. They must take care of their job as a student. Maximum effort would be required at every moment. “We wanted to set a standard,” Scales said. “There was no motivation; no work ethic. We wanted to show that those things wouldn’t be tolerated.” Over the three seasons before Scales took over,

The defending Class 6A state champions from South High with head coach Antwain Scales: (from left) junior Patriece Dodson, senior Eldria Franklin, senior Rachala Ross, sophomore Kendrian Elliott, sophomore Ericka Mattingly, junior Kirea Rogers, senior Madison Northcutt and junior Syndi James.

South went a combined 17-46, so there was no reason for anyone to think his first year would be any different. But something happened - players started to buy into what he was preaching. He told them defense and effort would win games. Maximizing every minute they played would lead to success. Focusing on what’s best for the team and sacrificing as an individual would make basketball fun again. And, sure enough, the turnaround began. In Scales’ first season, the Titans went 16-8 and qualified for the Class 6A tournament; a remarkable turnaround from the season before, when eight losses were reached shortly after Christmas. That was just a taste of what was in store for South.

Talent Level Rises While the mentality of the program changed in Scales’ first season, the talent level changed in his second. All of a sudden a program with no desire and little talent began to carry itself with swagger and had a loaded roster. Madison Northcutt, who was a second team allleague performer at North in 2010-2011, transferred to South for its EMT program. Eledria Franklin played at Collegiate in 2011, but then transferred to

Northeast Magnet and began playing for the Titans. In the beginning, Scales’ demanding ways were a culture shock to both of them, but ultimately they began to understand everything he was saying. “He’s really tough on us, but it’s worth it,” Northcutt said. “All of the structure and hard work … we wouldn’t be where we are without him (Scales).” The big coup, both literally and figuratively, for Scales and the Titans was 6-foot-3 freshman Kendrian Elliott, who dominated the City League in her first year, averaging 18 points and 13 rebounds per game. With Elliott, Northcutt and emerging post player Kirea Rogers, South all of a sudden had a dynamic frontcourt that was as good as any other in the state.

First and Only Loss While it was only the second game of the 2012-2013 season, South was going to find out just how good it was. The Titans were playing Kapaun Mt. Carmel, the

defending Class 5A champs. South lost to the Crusaders 40-32, but then something clicked. It’s hard to say for sure if that game was a turning point, but the schedule certainly indicated it was, as the Titans won their next 23 games, including a 46-44 thrilling victory over Heights in the state title game. It was South’s first girls’ basketball state championship since 1978. Nearly 18 months had passed since Scales had taken over the downtrodden program and now the Titans were state champions. Not only was South a talented team, it was a cohesive unit that clicked on every cylinder. “We are together all the time both on and off the basketball court,” Franklin said. “Having that bond went a long way for us last year.” With everyone back from last season, the target is squarely on the Titans’ back. Last year, South was the hunter; trying to chase down Heights and Kapaun. This year, everyone is chasing them; a new level of pressure with which the Titans have never dealt. “We can get better,” Northcutt said. “We didn’t go undefeated last year, so there is room for improvement.” Franklin said being content is something nobody ever thinks about. “We have to Madison Northcutt, who has signed with Pittsburg State, averaged 11 points and 10 rebounds a year ago.

F E AT U R E be prepared every game,” she said. “It’s going to be a challenge because the target is on our back, but we will stick together.”

Maintain the Program Sure, the state championship means a lot to Scales, but longevity means perhaps more. Teams have come along and won in spurts, but have not been able to sustain that success. Scales wants this to be a program, not just two or three years of success. “I look at the KU men’s team,” Scales said. “They don’t ever rebuild, they just reload. Sometimes they win on tradition more than anything else. I want that for South, because the school and the program have taken its lumps.” Scales had few believing in him two years ago and it still might be too early to say that South is the next powerhouse in the City League. But as Scales said, one thing is for sure. “We’re never satisfied.”

Head coach Antwain Scales demands discipline and defense.

The Titans went from a losing record to Class 6A state champions in two years.

Unfinished Business Eisenhower seeks perfection

By Jim Misunas

G

oddard Eisenhower’s basketball team has some unfinished business to attend to, led by firstteam all-stater Trevon Evans and 6-foot-6 center Trevon Evans and Matt Morris. the Eisenhower Tigers are ready to Evans will be one of the soar this season. state’s high-profile recruits after averaging 25.8 points and 8 assists per game last year. An upset loss to KapaunMt. Carmel last year ended the Tigers’ 19-2 season and prevented back-to-back Class 5A state appearances. Narrow post-season losses to Bishop Carroll (2012) and Kapaun the past two seasons have proven the Tigers are close to their goal of competing for a Class 5A state basketball championship. Eisenhower coach Steve Blue believes the loss to Kapaun showed the Tigers must develop mental toughness to achieve their goals. “Kapaun played a very physical game and was the more focused team,” he said. “We did not compete that night and Kapaun was the hungrier team.” Evans said the Tigers learned a valuable lesson against Kapaun. 32

VYPE.COM | HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS | NOVEMBER 2013

“We started off good against Kapaun and let it get away in the fourth quarter,” he said. “We learned we couldn’t take any plays off. We have to keep working and pushing ourselves to play our best basketball. We’ve got to continue to play together as a team.” The 6-foot Evans is being recruited as a point guard, but features the all-around skill to play as a comboguard. He’s a stylish ball-handler and passer who can score off the dribble or off a screen. He showcased his jumping ability with three dunks last year against Maize South. “Trevon is an extremely gifted young man,” said Blue. “He’s a tremendous shooter coming off picks, and taking someone off the dribble. What separates Trevon from other athletes is how much he hates to lose. He is ultra-competitive, and will play to win every time he steps on the court.” Evans has scholarship offers from Northern Colorado, Weber State and Texas Pan American. Wichita State has shown recruiting interest. Evans plans to wait and see if

other schools show interest. “I really like when I drive the lane and give a no-look pass to a teammate,” Evans said. “I want to help my teammates. I prefer to look at myself as a combo guard. I can make plays off the dribble.” Blue said Morris is one of the Tigers’ team leaders. “Matt is a great rebounder and has a good shooting touch from 15 feet,” Blue said. “He can post up and score and catch on the wing and knock down a jumper, which makes him tough to defend. Matt plays with a lot of enthusiasm and will push this team to reach their expectations.” Morris averaged 12 points and 9.5 rebounds per game last year. “We’ve learned to stick together as a team and play our roles,” Morris said. “We’ve got to show up and compete every game. It’s a tough goal to look at, but our main goal is to win every game. If we play together as a team, we believe that will happen.” Eisenhower also returns 3-point specialist Brennan Stemple (10.2 ppg.), Daniel Southworth (6 ppg.) and Bailey Strunk (6 ppg.). A promising newcomer is Tyler Buchanan, a 6-5 Indiana transfer, who averaged 10.6 points a game for Lafayette Jefferson last season. Buchanan can play inside and outside. The Tigers feature six players with starting

experience and Blue Matt Morris has started since expects a high level of play his sophomore year. from the outset. “They know the expectations and what we demand of them,” Blue said. “This is the most experience we have had returning. They are ready to rise to the occasion.” Eisenhower operates a motion offense that allows its guards to drive into gaps and into the lane for passing and scoring opportunities. A pick-and-roll scheme also creates scoring opportunities. “Trevon is our point guard so the offense starts with him, but all the guards have the freedom to create as long as they are not being selfish,” Blue said. “If you play hard on defense you will have the green light on offense.” Blue is a defensiveoriented coach, whose team plays man-toman 99 percent of the time. The Tigers focus on tough, hard-nosed defense that creates scoring opportunities at the offensive end. Blue believes defense is where basketball games

are won and lost. “We run some trapping in the half-court, but our defense is based off great on-ball pressure and being in great help position and ready to rotate, Blue said. “You will see us take the pressure up a notch and do some full-court pressure to better utilize our personnel.” Blue said his goal is for his team to focus on one practice and one game at a time. If the Tigers do that, Blue believes the

they have an opportunity to do something special. “Our expectations are extremely high and our goal is to improve each day,” Blue said. “If we improve each day, the ultimate goal of winning league and getting another opportunity at state will happen.” Blue stresses a team concept and consistent approach. He senses his team’s focus slipped a notch near the end of last season. “Late last year there was a drop off and that cannot happen,” he said. “We have got to be accountable every day in practice and have got to be our teammates’ biggest fan.” Blue senses that a senior-dominated lineup realizes it’s their time to shine. “There is always motivation,” Blue said. “But, the fact that this senior class has not accomplished their goals, and that we have been close, definitely is on our mind. It will be a motivating factor all year.” Blue played on state championship teams for coach Steve Eck at Wichita South and served as head coach for seven seasons at Goddard before switching to Eisenhower three years ago.

Where Do We Go From Here?

City League Reloads After Ellis, Frankamp By Bob Lutz

T

he Perry Ellis era ended in 2012. Along with it, the Heights basketball dynasty came to a screeching halt. And now Conner Frankamp, who passed Ellis last season as the City League’s all-time scoring leader while finishing up his iconic high school career at North, has moved on to play at Kansas, just as Ellis did. Now, people wonder, where does the City League go from here? The answer: It’s not likely to go anywhere. It’s probably going to remain what it has been for going on five decades now, the best basketball league in Kansas. No Ellis. No Frankamp. No dominant team. No incumbent state championship team. No worries. “First of all, we’ve got a long, long history of excellent players and excellent teams in our league,’’ Heights coach Joe Auer said.

VYPE.COM | HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS | NOVEMBER 2013

“We’ve had eras of great players and great teams going back to the 1960s and all the way to today. What happens is that the next stars will start to emerge.” And with Ellis now in his second season at KU and Frankamp in his first, there’s more room on the big stage. City League teams have won 35 state basketball championships, 31 in the highest classification. It all started when East put a dent in the ongoing Kansas City Wyandotte dynasty - 11 state titles during a 14-year span from 1957-70 - by knocking off Wyandotte in the 1962 state championship game. Wyandotte’s domination was ultimately stopped not by one team, but by a slew of them that comprised the City League. Southeast broke Wyandotte’s four-year state championship winning streak in 1971, then East won in 1972. Heights won in 1977, followed by four in a row from South. Since 1971, the City League has produced 26 of 43 state champions in Kansas’ largest class. It’s been Perry Ellis and Connor a remarkable run, not only for Frankamp were two of success but for consistency. the greatest players City League teams in first Class in City League history, 5A, then 6A, have won five titles but more good ones during the 1970s, six during the are on the way. 1980s, six more during the Photos by Phil Zivnuska 1990s, six from 20002009 and so far three since 2010.

You think this league is going to shrivel up and die because it doesn’t have players with the

But so could six or seven other teams. East is probably the favorite, but that doesn’t mean Southeast, North, Heights, Kapaun Mt. Carmel and Bishop Carroll couldn’t be in the mix. And it’s probably best not to sleep on West or South, either. “I think once we get past the Christmas break and into midCity League Players To Watch January, you’ll see a few of these players around the league start to rise to the top,’’ Kapaun coach John Cherne said. “I saw a lot Bishop Carroll - Conner Evans, 6-4, jr.; Luke Hohl, 5-10, sr.; of good young talent this summer from a lot of the kids in the Patrick Carney, 6-0, soph.; Matt Price, 6-4, sr.; Brett Bell, 6-6, jr. league.” East - Samajah Jones, 6-0, jr.; Zach Jackson, 6-4, There won’t be an Ellis in the league this season. There won’t jr.; Xavier Kelly, 6-5, soph.; Tyas Martin, 6-3, sr. be a Frankamp. There might not be players of that caliber in the league for a while, if ever.

The City League has gone more than two seasons without a championship in Class 6A/5A only twice since 1970. There was a four-season dry spell from 1973-76, and another four years without a title from 1983-86. The City League was shut out in its quest for a sixth straight 6A championship last season as North and East fell in the first round. But, if history has taught us anything, it’s that it won’t be long until one, two or three teams from the league are threatening to win a state championship. “This is probably going to be a year in this league where it’s wide open,” said Auer, the dean of City League coaches and Heights’ coach since 1995. “I think it’s pretty exciting for everybody. There’s a clean slate for everyone this year, especially with Perry and Conner now gone and that run we were on that ended. It’s kind of refreshing for everyone, I think, not to know who the dominant teams and players are going to be.’’ There are still a bunch of good players in the City League. Some of the names, though, will be new. “There are a lot of returning players coming back,’’ Southeast coach Melvin Herring said. “The difference might be that people are going to be coming out this season to watch a particular game and not a particular player.’’ Herring, though, believes he has a couple of potential stars in sophomores Jerrick Harding and Elijah Payne, not to mention junior Octavious Loudermilk, who moved in from St. Louis late last season. East coach Joe Jackson has 6-foot junior guard Samajah Jones, who went toe to toe with Frankamp in a couple of games last season and didn’t back down. Jackson is also high on 6-5 sophomore Xavier Kelly, who is back in town after spending a year in Georgia. And 6-4 junior Zach Jackson, Jackson said, might be East’s best overall player. Heights returns senior Ealy Bell. And Jarez Barnes, the son of the late Cortez Barnes, a former Heights All-State player, is a Falcons junior. North’s Squires expects guards Tarius Williams and Zach Beard to have big seasons as they try to prove North wasn’t just about Frankamp. Collins believes 6-9 senior Cortez Carr will emerge at

Northwest. Bishop Carroll coach Lonnie Lollar is excited about some of his players, including 6-4 junior guard Conner Evans. Kapaun also has talent. West has a new coach, Carl Taylor, who really is an old coach. Old in terms of being the City League’s all-time winningest coach for his work at Southeast from 1992-2012. And new South coach Charles Gunter, who has been an AAU coach for 14 years, likes some of his returning players, including 6-6 senior Jordan Moore. “Players like Conner and Perry don’t come along often,’’ Gunter said. “But I look around this league and I think the freshman and sophomore classes are really loaded. There are going to be some good players coming up in the City League.’’ There always are. There always will be.

Panthers Look To Continue Success

W

By Harold Bechard

hat happens when you put the best basketball team in school history on the court? Eventually those talented players will graduate and need to be replaced. That’s the case in Derby where the Panthers produced a 20-4 record and third-place finish in the Class 6A state tournament last year. Two starters return for the Panthers, who are expected to battle for the AVCTL-I title once again this season. Returning for the Panthers are 6-2 senior Jeremy Dunham and 6-2 junior James “Papi” Conley, who both averaged around eight points a game, and four other lettermen, none over 6-1. “Although we have two guys in Papi and Jeremy with a ton of experience, the pieces we put around them this year will be inexperienced at first,” head coach Brett Flory said. “We lost several good seniors from the best team, in school history last year. How fast our new players progress will be a huge key for us. We have a chance to be very good and versatile in our pressure defense.” Maize High expects to improve considerably from last year’s 8-13 mark. Five starters return, including 6-5 junior Connor Lungwitz, a second-team all-league pick last year, and 6-1 senior Aaron Shaw, who was an honorable mention choice. “We return a lot of kids with quality playing time from a year ago,” coach Chris Davis said. “We might be one of the better defensive teams that we’ve had here at Maize.”

Gunar Drinner, a 5-10 senior, was HM all-league last year. “We have a good mix of experience and youth,” Cameron said. “We will get better as our young kids gain experience.” Hutchinson returns 5-6 senior Braydon Wells, who was HM allleague last year. The Salt Hawks also return five lettermen, including 6-3 senior Jezel Parra. “These are hard-working kids who love to compete and play the game of basketball,” coach Nate Henry said. “This team lacks size and depth, which we hope to overcome with great effort and execution.” The Campus Colts won just two games last year, but that is expected to change. Three starters return and head coach Russell Herman has four more lettermen and a host of younger players looking for varsity playing time. “Our biggest strength is our depth. We have 16 players who similar talents vying for playing time in an eight or nine-man rotation,” Herman said. “We should also have very team-oriented and unselfish players.”

AVCTL-II Athough Eisenhower High (see story, Page 32) is expected to be one of the top teams in Class 5A, Division II in the AVCTL is more than just the Tigers. Andover, Andover Central and Maize South will push for that top spot, while Valley Center, Arkansas City and Goddard will be improved. In fact, it was the Andover Trojans (17-6) who reached the 5A state tournament last year before losing to Mill Valley in the first round. The Trojans return two starters, including 6-6 senior Adam Dekoning, who averaged 11.3 points and 8.2 rebounds a game last year and was named first-team all-league. Also back is 5-10 senior Ryan Bezdek. “We have good leaders in Ryan and Adam, as well as our other seniors,” head coach Chad Willmott said. “If we can stay healthy, we should be able to keep freshman legs on the floor at all times.” Andover Central was 17-5 a year ago and finished second in the league race to Eisenhower. The Jaguars return one of the state’s top sophomores in 6-2 swingman Darraja Parnell, who averaged 13.3 points a game as a freshman. The Jags also have five senior lettermen returning. “Our margin for error will be small, but we have a hard-working group of seniors for this team,” coach Jesse Herrmann said. Maize South will feature the 1-2 scoring punch of 6-3 junior Kade Kordonowy and 6-9 senior Brett Barney. Both averaged just under 15

points a game. The Mavericks were 8-13 a year ago, but expect to make a big jump in that win total with five returning starters. Barney struggled with injuries last year, but is a versatile player who is being recruited by several schools across the country. Kordonowy was a second-team allleague choice last year, while Barney and 5-8 sophomore guard Payten Ricks were HM picks. In addition, the Mavs have six other lettermen returning, four of them 6-3 or taller. Valley Center could be the league dark horse this season. The Hornets won seven games a year ago, but returning a slew of players – four starters and seven additional lettermen for head coach John Wetig. Blake Crager, a 6-3 junior, could have a breakout year. “Our depth is a definite strength as well as comfort in our system and with each other,” Wetig said. “Size will be a struggle for us, but we’ll try to counter that with speed and athleticism.” Arkansas City and Goddard will both look to move up the league ladder. Ark City welcomes back six lettermen from a 4-17 team, including junior guard Skyler Bryant and senior forward Trent Gashler. Goddard head coach Kyle Taylor has three starters returning from a 3-17 team, including 6-3 senior Tucker Vang, who averaged 11.4 points a game last year. The Lions will also be bolstered by the addition of 5-11 senior transfer Ryan Nordquist, who averaged 9.2 points a game at Buhler last year and was an allleague selection. “We have a great group of kids who will play hard and play together,” Taylor said.

AVCTL-III Who will challenge McPherson in Division III? The El Dorado Wildcats could be that team with two starters and seven other lettermen returning from a 14-7 team. Those starters – 6-1 senior Travis House and 6-5 senior Jared Haury – both had strong junior seasons. House averaged 15.5 points per game and was named first-team all-league, while Haury averaged 10.4 points and 6.6 rebounds. Another senior, John Scott, averaged 7.2 points off the bench. “Last season’s success should allow this group to enter the season with

Central Plains The CPL should be as balanced and competitive as it’s ever been, but the team that went through the league schedule unbeaten last year – Trinity Academy – is picked to win it again. Head coach Steve Miller welcomes back four starters and four lettermen from a 16-6 team that was 9-0 in league play. “I love coaching these young men because they play so hard,” Miller said. “They come to practice with the attitude that they want to get better. They play unselfishly and as a team.” The Knights are expected to be a deep team with speed and quickness, but don’t have a lot of size. Matt Jones, Tyler Burns

“The players have worked extremely hard during the off season and have improved in many aspects of the game,” Buchanan said. “We lost four seniors , so we will be looking to see which players will step up and fill the vacant spots.” Collegiate doesn’t have the marquee name player, but the head coach Mitch Fiegel’s Spartans are loaded with depth. Seven lettermen return from last year’s 15-8 team and Collegiate is expected to be one of the top teams in Class 3A this season. Seniors’ Brodey Dick and Landon Root will be two of the leaders, while sophomores Jack Copher and Xzavaier Adams are expected to be in the starting lineup. The Spartans have a deep and talented sophomore class, including Rose Hill transfer Austin Waddell, who started at RHHS as a freshman. “On page, we look young and if you want to just consider the academic school year, we are,” Fiegel said. “But, we are wise beyond our grade. For the first time since 2010, we will have the opportunity to guard baseline to baseline for 32 minutes and we’re excited about that prospect.” Clearwater features one of the league’s top players in 6-1 senior John Becker, who scored 15.6 points a game last year. The Indians were 15-6 and also return starters Reed VanDeest (10.5 ppg.) and Devin Roth. Collin Neises, a junior, averaged over five a game off the bench. “Forcing tempo with defense and aggressive offense will be the trademark style of this team,” coach Dustin Clevenger said. “John (Becker) has had a special career at CHS. He is a dynamic player and has the ability to take over games at both ends of the court.” Augusta welcomes back three starters from an 8-12 team, including 6-0 junior Connor Hurst, who averaged 12 points a game. Kyler Steinkamp and Brandon Smith, a pair of 6-3 seniors, are back, and the Orioles will get a boost with the return of 6-4 senior Sean Brandenburg, who missed last season with an injury. “We have athleticism, speed and experience, but we need a couple young kids to step up and take some minutes,” coach David Stephenson said. Wellington returns just four players from last year’s 5-15 team. One of them is a good one in 6-5 junior Trevor Nance. The Circle Thunderbirds could be the league dark horse with three starters back from a 3-17 team for first-year coach Bo Horyna – senior Paul Richard (6.0), junior Braden Kirkpartrick (10.0) and senior Jake Smith (7.0). Garrett Cannon, a 6-5 junior, also averaged 7 points a game off the bench. “We have quite a few returning players with varsity experience,” Horyna said, “but, we will see how quickly they pick up the new system.”

Brett Barney of Maize South is drawing interest from college recruiters across the country. and Preston Miller all averaged between 8 and 10 points a game last year and several others were in the 4 to 6 range. The Douglass Bulldogs are expected to make a big push for the CPL title this season with all five starters returning from a 10-12 team. Two of those starters – 6-5 senior Cody Holthaus and 5-11 senior Chase Banister – averaged 18.7 and 17,0 points a game and form one of the top 1-2 scoring punches in the state. Holthaus also pulled down 7.6 rebounds a contest. The Bulldogs held their own preseason media day to showcase their program. “This is a special senior group. We all arrived in Douglass four years ago and we have been together for four years,” head coach Ty Unrah said. “Expectations are high. We return our top eight scorers from last season, but we have to improve defensively. We average 58 points per game but allow 59. That doesn’t work.” Senior forward John Gardner (8.0 ppg., 5.2 rpg.) and senior guard Drew Chadic (6.4 ppg.) also return along with junior guard Rip Fraley. The Cheney Cardinals won 18 games last year and return starters for head coach Lee Baldwin – 5-10 junior Cameron Hill (10.0 ppg.) and 6-4 junior Ty Patterson (8.0 ppg.) – as well as senior reserve Tyler Amsink who coach calls the most improved player in the program. “We have the potential to be nine or 10 deep,” Baldwin said. “We have the potential to be a better defensive team than last year.” The Independent Panthers have just one starter returning from last year’s 18-6 team that qualified for the Class 3A state tournament – 6-5 senior Michael Kay (6.5 ppg.) – but do have five other lettermen, including four seniors, also returning. The Panthers set a school record for wins last year and reached the state tourney for the first time. “Our depth should be good,” coach Rob Fields said. “We have a good senior class and good sophomore class and should be able to get in up and down the court.”

Garden Plain welcomes back two senior starters from an 8-14 team – Clayton Milford and Nick Thimesch – as well as four additional lettermen for head coach Chris Grill. “It’s nice to have our starting point guard back in Clayton and starting center back in Nick,” Grill said. “We have many played back that played quality minutes.” Conway Springs features one of the area’s top players in 6-1 guard Ross Rasmussen, who averaged 16.5 points a game last year and earned first-team all-league honors. Junior guard Nick Oswald and sophomore guard Dylan Murphy also return. “Ross can score in multiple ways; he gets to the basket and has a nice mid-range game,” head coach James O’Brien said. “This team has a chance to be very good offensively.” Chaparral will look to make a big push to improve on last year’s 7-14 record. The Roadrunners return four starters, including 6-9 senior center Jaden Miller. Also back are seniors Adam Capps and Ryley Menhusen and junior Shawn Nulik. Bluestem has three starters back from a 4-16 team and an additional four lettermen, but the Lions could struggle against bigger opponents. Belle Plaine returns two starters from a 2-19 team – junior Brett Gooch and sophomore Brandon Happy.

Central Kansas This could be a banner season for the Hesston Swathers, who were 20-3 last year, but failed to reach the 4A state tournament after losing to Abilene on the Cowboys’ home court in the sub-state tournament finals. The Swathers of head coach Greg Raleigh have four starters return and all averaged in double figures a year ago. Grant Raleigh, a 6-1 junior and the coach’s son, averaged 14.1 points and 3.7 assists per game. He was joined on the allleague first team by 6-6 senior

Wyatt McKinney, who produced 12.0 points and 7.8 rebounds a game. Ryan Schadler, who had an all-state season on the football field, scored 11.8 points a game last year and was second-team all-league, while junior Tyler McCartney averaged 11.6 a game. “We will have some size and good athleticism,” Greg Raleigh said. “We should be good defensively and bigger and stronger. Playing with a consistent effort and intensity is something we must continue to work on.” The Kingman Eagles should make a jump from last year’s 8-13 season as three starters return, including two who averaged in double figures – 6-2 senior Mitchell Packard (12.8 ppg.) and 6-3 junior Brandon Bradshaw (11.4). “This team will be based on solid defense and excellent rebounding on both ends of the court,” head coach Steve Bangert said. “Scoring will be very balanced. Each starter has the potential to lead the team in scoring on any given night.” The Haven Wildcats will have to work to duplicate last year’s 14-9 mark and sub-state runner-up finish. They return no starters and just three lettermen. “The key to our season is to see how quickly some of our guys step up and contribute at the varsity level,” coach Lonnie Paramore said. The Halstead Dragons could be the dark horse in the CKL this season. They feature one of the league’s top players in 5-7 senior guard Anthony Santiago, who averaged 17.4 points a game last year and was named first-team all-league and honorable mention all-state. The Dragons return four starters in all and won six of their final seven games of the season to finish 9-12. Nickerson has three starters returning in the hopes of turning around last year’s 5-16 season – Joey Stockinger, Nate Hiatt and Ethan Belden.

football injuries. Darin Ward, the leading scorer from last year, will miss the season with a knee injury. Devan York will also miss time as well because of an injury. Three starters return from Oxford’s 12-9 team of a year ago, including 6-6 junior Derek Williams, who averaged 8.6 points and 6.5 rebounds a game. The Wildcats have five lettermen also returning. “These kids have played together for a long time and they are a true team,” head coach Kyle Green said. “They don’t care who gets the glory.” South Haven was 22-3 a year and finished second in the Class 1A-I state tournament. But, the Cardinals lost 10 seniors from that team and have just two lettermen returning for first-year coach Kalen Fitch. Central Burden is in the same boat. The Raiders were 20-2 last year, but have no returning

Heart of America Berean Academy is traditionally one of the best teams in the HOA and the 2013-14 should be no different. The Warriors return two starters from a 13-8 team, including 6-2 senior Loren Peare, who averaged 11.4 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. “We have a lot of experience back and should be a better shooting and offensive team this year,” head coach Lewis Wiebe said. “I think we can have a pretty well-balanced team if things come together for us.” Trinity Catholic will look to bounce back from a difficult injury-riddled season. The Celtics return six lettermen from a team that won four games, including six seniors and two juniors. “We are coming off a tough and difficult season. Injuries, inexperience, a tough schedule and other factors played a role in the low win total,” Hammersmith said. “We need to play tougher. I’m talking about the mental toughness part of the game, not the physical part. “ Sedgwick is coming off another highly-successful football season and the Cardinals hope that carries over to basketball. Five lettermen return from an 11-10 season. Also back is junior Brylie Ware, who missed last season with a knee injury. “We have a solid group of underclassmen that worked hard throughout the offseason,” head coach Darren Crumrine said. “Although we are low on upperclassmen, they are good kids and capable of being positive leaders.” Remington won 15 games last year and advanced to the sub-state finals, but the Broncos are starting with a near clean slate. Only two lettermen return and the Broncos will be young and inexperienced.

Heart of the Plains The Cougars of Central Christian had an outstanding season in 2012-13, winning 19 of 23 games and reaching the Class 1A-II state tournament. Three starters return for head coach Adam Clark, including senior Zac Krehbiel, who averaged 12.1 points per game and his brother, junior Ben Krehbiel, who scored 11.6. The Cougars also have four lettermen returning. One of them is 6-8 junior Noah Starkey. “We will be a deep team with good size,” Clark said. “We will push the ball on offense.” Fairfield was 11-11 a year ago and the Falcons have three starters back, including one of the league’s top players in 6-4 senior John Dealy, who averaged 15.6 points and 10.6 rebounds a game. Dealy set a single-game school record with 25 rebounds in one game. Fellow seniors Ryan Ewy (7.8 ppg.) and Eric Schoenecker (8.1 ppg.) also return. “We are coming off a 7-2 football record, one of the best in school history,” head coach Luke Bauman said. “I had a blast coaching these guys in football (as an assistant) and look forward to coaching them in basketball.” Attica will look for more improvement after last year’s 13-winning season. The Bulldogs return all five starters, including 6-1 sophomore Devon Newberry, who averaged 16 points a game last year. Austin Newberry scored 11 points a game and the team will be bolstered by the addition of 6-4

Others Veteran coach Ron Allen is back on the sidelines again after taking a year off from coaching. Allen is with the Sunrise Christian Buffaloes, who return four starters from a 17-14 team. The Buffs are looking for a big year. Marcus Fager, a 6-7 sophomore, has Division I potential and 5-10 senior Dinagio Mackie is a solid point guard. The Wichita Homeschool Warriors return

three starters from, a 20-8 team that won the KCAA regular-season title last year. Nolan McClure, the son of head coach Brian McClure, averaged 12.2 points a game. Also back is 6-5 junior Matthew LeBegue, who had averages of 9.1 points and 6.9 rebounds a game. But, the team took a big hit with a season-ending football injury to returning guard Levi Peffly. Terrance Micheaux is starting his first season at World of Life and may have one of the state’s top players in 6-7 senior Luka Radosevic, who is being recruited by the likes of Gonzaga, Virginia and Arizona. “He will be one of the better players in the state,” Micheaux said. “Hands down, he is big time.” Editor’s Note: Information on the Wichita City League starts on Page 36.

Hesston has one of the top teams in 3A thanks to senior Wyatt McKinney. junior Austin O’Connor, a transfer from Wichita South. Burrton reached the Class 1A-I state tournament last year and have three starters returning, including senior Caleb Hurst and juniors Nathan Harper and Kris Lane. All averaged between 7 and 8 points a game for head coach Tony Hoopes. Pretty Prairie will be a young team this season with just one starter and one lettermen returning from a 13-9 team. Cunningham, meanwhile, has two starters back from a 15-9 team and one of them may miss the season because of a football injury. Norwich won just two games last year, but could improve on that with four starters back. One of them – sophomore Jacob Norris – won’t be back until after Christmas because of an injury.

South Central Border Udall has won 73 games over the last four seasons under head coach John Mayes, but the Eagles have some work to do this season. Three starters return, but none averaged more than 5 points a game last year as Michael Propst did the majority of the scoring. But, the Eagles also have four lettermen back and one of them – Tylor Kistler – will be back from a football injury after Christmas. Caldwell won 10 games last year and the Bluejays have three starters returning, but they have been hit hard by

City League: The Chase Is On

an anyone slow down the South High express in the City League this season? Class 6A defending state champion Wichita South (see story, Page 28) is the obvious favorite with all five starters back from a team that went 24-1, but teams like Kapaun Mt. Carmel, Bishop Carroll and Heights might have a say in the matter. Kapaun has been to back-to-back 5A state tournaments – winning the state title in 2012 and finishing fourth last year – and has three all-league starters returning from a team that went 20-5 overall and 15-1 in the league race. The Crusaders handed South its only loss last year. Junior guard Samantha Bachrodt, who has verbally committed to Drake University, was an all-league and all-state player last year for Kapaun, averaging 11.1 points a game. She will be joined by returning starters Grace Hagan, a 5-10 junior, and Sydney Kuhn, a 6-1 senior who will play volleyball at Notre Dame. “I think if we can find four young players who can develop this year, we can be very competitive in 5A,” KMC head coach Marvin Estes said. “We are blessed with three players who are excellent arhletes and basketball players.” Bishop Carroll returns four starters from a 13-9 team for second-year head coach Taylor Steven. Jordy Miller, a 5-11 junior, averaged 12.8 points and 5.2 rebounds a game, while 5-11 junior Shelby Lopez scored nearly 10 a game. The Golden Eagles have eight lettermen returning – three seniors and five juniors. “Our biggest strength this year will be our depth,” Steven said. “Being a first-year coach last season, it took a while for the players to adjust to a new coach’s way of doing things. They did a great job of this and overcoming adversity with the injuries we faced.” Heights lost seven games last year, but still reached the 6A state game before losing a two-point decision to Wichita South. The Falcons have reached the final four of the state tournament nine consecutive times under head coach Kip Pulliam, losing just 21 games during that stretch. Heights returns five lettermen from that 18-7 team, including its lone senior – Kiersten Parks, a 5-10 guardforward. The Falcons also bring back 5-8 junior guard Rae Rae Owens. Northwest was 10-12 a year ago and returns three starters from that team, including 5-9 senior Calea Carr. East was 9-12 last year and returns one starter in 5-8 senior Kimirra Lee. Three other seniors return as lettermen. North High

Jessica Steffen, a 5-9 sophomore, averaged 11 points a game while the coach’s daughter, Taryn Torgerson, added 10.5 a game and has been named all-league three years in a row. This could be a very good year for the Mulvane Wildcats. Destynee

Donaldson, a senior, averaged 11.0 points and 6.8 rebounds a game last year and is one of four returning starters from the 15-6 team. Aubree Burkhart, also a senior, is back after scoring 8.4 a game. It’s been a long dry spell for Winfield. The Vikings haven’t has a winning season since 1988. They return three starters and six additional lettermen this year with the hopes of ending that streak.

Junior forward Kynnedy Myers averaged 8.9 points and 6.6 rebounds a game last season, while Autumn Lipscomb scored 8.5. El Dorado coach Shauna Riedy welcomes back four starters from a 5-15 team.

AVCTL-IV Andale is one of the teams to beat each year and this season is no different. The Indians were 17-4 last year and unbeaten in league play. They return two starters, including 5-3 junior guard Brittany Meyer, who scored 13 points a game. Lauren Rowland, a 5-9 junior, is also back. Clearwater has possibly the league’s top player in 6-0 forward Bryna Vogel, who has signed to play volleyball at Kansas State. Vogel averaged 19 points and 11 rebounds a game, but is the lone starter returning from a team that went 16-7 and reached the 4A state tournament. However, the Indians do have five other lettermen back. Circle could make a strong push this season with seven lettermen returning from an 11-10 team. The T-Birds will look to play pressure defense once again and will feature a guard-oriented offense. Augusta looks to gain ground in head coach Tracy Anderson’s second year. The Orioles have two starters and seven lettermen back from a 6-16 team. Eric Adams takes over a team that has won 60 games over the last four years and the expectations haven’t changed. Two starters return – 5-9 senior Jaedyn Ledesma and 5-6 senior Carlie McComb. Collegiate has struggled the last couple years, but the Spartans return four starters and five more lettermen from a 4-16 team. The future looks bright with seven of nine returnees being sophomores.

Central Plains Garden Plain has been one of the top girls’ basketball programs in the area for years and not much has changed. The Owls, despite a coaching change, are still the team to beat according to the preseason coaches’ poll. The Owls, however, return just one starter – 5-8 junior Noelle Dooley – from last year’s 24-2 team that finished second in the Class 3A state tournament. Two other lettermen – 5-10 senior Lizzie Costello and 5-5 sophomore Daylynn Doyle – also return. The Cheney Cardinals will be a strong threat for the CPL title with four returning starters who averaged between 6.0 and 10.2 points per game last year. The Cardinals are experienced, with eight of the top 10 players being seniors or juniors. Taylor Denney, a junior, averaged in double figures. Trinity Academy is another team with depth.

Central Kansas Hesston has won 37 games over the last two seasons, but has been eliminated by McPherson in sub-state play each year. The Swathers won’t have to worry about that this season. They dropped to Class 3A and with eight lettermen, including four starters, returning from a 20-3 team, coach Matt Richardson’s team will be one of the best this season. Caylee Richardson, a 6-0 junior, averaged 11.2 points a game last year, while her younger sister, Cami, scored 9.1 a game. Kelsey Unruh is a 6-1 junior who scored 8.4 a contest last year. Haven was 18-5 last year and finished second in sub-state play. The Wildcats return 10 lettermen from that team, including three seniors. Kingman welcomes back two starters and three lettermen in the hopes of improving on last year’s 6-15 record. Halstead features all-league guard Sydney Beat, who averaged 12 points a game last year. Beat is one of five returning starters for the Dragons.

Heart of the Plains Norwich has won 61 games over the last three years, so expectations are high even when just one starter returns from last year’s 23-2 team that placed second in the Class 1A-II state tournament. That one starter is 5-9 senior Bailey Poe, who averaged 9.8 points and 7.5 rebounds a game. Pretty Prairie could challenge once again as four starters return.

rotein powders have been used by bodybuilders and athletes for decades. While many believe protein supplements are intended for athletes and bodybuilders only, protein is a crucial part of any well balanced diet. Protein is comprised of amino acids, 9 of which are considered essential because the body cannot make them, they must be supplied by the diet. Protein is essential for growth and the building of new tissue as well as the repair of broken down tissue - like what happens when you exercise. 1 gram of protein per body pound, per day should be consumed for a well balanced diet. There are many foods protein can be found in, such as meat, nuts and dairy products, but sometimes getting the amount of protein you need from just food can be tough, so protein shake supplements make it easier to get the protein you need.

Boys’ Cross Country

And The Beat Goes On Carroll claims Fifth Straight Title By Taylor Eldridge

T

here was not a David Thor or a Gage Garcia or a James Hampton on the Bishop Carroll boys’ cross country team this season. Essentially what the Eagles were working with were two runners coming off disappointing seasons, three more who were unproven in larger roles and two who were threeyear junior varsity runners. To some, that outlook would be bleak. To Bishop Carroll, that’s just what it calls its fifth straight Class 5A championship team after the Eagles used a group of unknowns to extend their dynasty in record-setting fashion

and setting the new record for team points in the process. Carroll scored a record-low 30 points in their victory on Nov. 2 in Lawrence. Carroll was expected to dominate the past four years because it had dominant runners at the top of the lineup. But, this team to be the best of the bunch? Few saw this coming. “Am I proud of these seniors in a special way? Yes, I am,” coach Cory Swords said. “They believed in themselves at times where I don’t think anybody outside the Bishop Carroll program believed in what they were doing.” Many believed Carroll’s string of championships was over with the graduation of Thor. Then the Eagles proved their doubters wrong with new seniors. When those runners graduated, the process repeated. But, the Carroll dynasty chugs along because of runners like Damien Hiser and Lucas Clupny, who stuck with the program for all four years even after suffering tremendous set-backs and never being on varsity until their senior year. After not even being one of the top 14 runners on the team as freshmen, Clupny finished as an all-state runner and Hiser a state champion. “We talk a lot about fortitude and about making the right choice when the right choice isn’t always the easy choice,” Swords said. “I think Lucas (and Damien are) an excellent example of that. This sport rewards the patient. If you’re patient and you put your time in,

you too can accomplish great things.” Carroll won because Nick Martin, Paul Becker, and Hunter Nance recognized their potential and met it at the end of the season. Martin, whose breakout spurred on Carroll to an upset of North in the City League championships, finished third overall at state and Becker and Nance were right behind him in fifth and sixth, respectively. Matt Arnold, another senior leader, and Clupny rounded out Carroll’s score in 11th and 12th place, while Seth Arnold and Hiser also were part of the championship run. With four seniors graduating, it seems once again that Carroll’s run is coming to a close. But, that’s just what they say every year after Swords and the Eagles collect yet another improbable championship.

Hanna had finished ahead of Osen. Winfield also finished second as a team in 4A with Noah Camp (14th, 17:31) also collecting a state medal and Tyler Wallace, Drew Keller, Drew Chrisman, and Chauncey Toon contributing.

North’s Senior Finale The Wichita North foursome of Tristyn Villa, J’Quon Williams, Nico Hernandez, and Jeremy Brittain wrapped up sterling careers at the state meet. The Redskins finished second in 6A as a team for the second consecutive season. The four were the backbone of a resurgence in the program, as the Redskins claimed their first City League championship last season in decades and established North as a

running program. Williams was the top finisher for North at state, taking ninth overall in a time of 16:26, while Brittain also picked up a medal in 16th place at 16:40.

Fonseca Finish Wichita West junior Dominick Fonseca led for stretches of the 5A race, but was not able to sustain it and finished runner-up in a time of 16:19. It concluded another tremendous season by Fonseca, who promises to challenge for the title again next season.

Winfield knew that it likely had this year’s state championship runner on its team; it just didn’t know who it was. Senior Josh Hanna was the defending 4A state champion, but an injury robbed him of his summer training, and sophomore Riley Osen ascended to take over his spot atop most races during the course of this season. But, when it mattered most, Hanna rose to the occasion and delivered his season’s best performance at the Class 4A state in Wamego to defend his title in a time of 16:25, eight seconds better than Osen.

The Wright sisters have all taken turns helping Douglass win Class 3A championships and now the Bulldogs are winners of three straight, as the youngest sister junior Suzie Wright – helped lead them to another title on Nov. 2 in Lawrence. But, Douglass had a difficult time convincing anyone it was capable of a three-peat, even its own school. Girls on the team said that their peers thought the title streak was over after Savannah and Sarah Wright, who now run at Wichita State, graduated. “It was really a lot of pressure on me,” Suzie said. “A lot of people didn’t have faith in us. A lot of people in our school didn’t even think we could do it. We wanted to prove everybody wrong and it’s an awesome feeling.” But, this victory was much more than Wright adding a third championship to the family. It was about the team at Douglass overcoming its adversity. While Suzie was wonderful, finishing seventh overall in 16:19, it was actually sophomore Klair

Andover duo finds success It was a breakout season for two first-year runners at Andover, as sophomore Nikki Zielinski and freshman Carly Flake topped off tremendous debut seasons with Top-10 finishes at the 5A state meet. While Flake was eighth in 15:56, Zielinski ran her best race of the season to finish fifth overall in 15:43. The two traded off the top spot on the team throughout the season and finished as one of the best 1-2 punches in the state. “It’s been a wild season,” Zielinski said. “I never expected to get this far. I thought maybe I would get to state, but fifth at state? It’s amazing. This is so cool.”

was ridiculous. Aquinas had the first four runners across the finish line and put its fifth in seventh place overall, but ahead of every other state-qualifying team’s top runner to complete a perfect score of 15 points. “That was seriously impressive,” Carroll coach Ran Nielsen said. “I thought we ran pretty well and we were still 50 points back.” Carroll logged a second-place performance, as Alyssa Cooke (10th, 16:03), Amanda Reggeti (12th, 16:03), Victoria Reggeti (14th, 16:04), and Amanda Goebel (21st, 16:33) all were solid.

Maize falls short Injuries and illnesses came at the wrong time of the season for Maize, which had hopes of a Top 3 finish crumble as both maladies struck the team in the final weeks of the season. Maize was still able to finish in fifth place overall, led by junior Deidra Walker and her sixth-place finish in 15:28. Other runners for the Eagles were Kassidy Watkins, Sydney Roy, Nicole Goebel, Kaitlin Ayres, Shea Roy, and Aaren Morrell.

but many drivers voluntarily engage in activities that increase crash risk. Living in today's digital age, many drivers feel obligated or pressured to remain connected to their social media in the car. As drivers, we need to remember that being a safe, defensive driver commands our full attention. Studies tell us dialing or talking on the phone can increase crash-risk four times, and texting while driving can increase crash-risk eighth to 23 times! One recent study says drivers age 17-19 are the worst offenders of texting and driving, so make sure you tell your friends that you don't use the phone while driving.

Chasing The Gold Cheney, Trinity second; Kapaun finishes third By Kyle McCaskey

T

he gold standard for volleyball in Kansas remains St. James Academy. At the Class 5A state tournament in Topeka, Kapaun Mt. Carmel had hoped to avoid a final four matchup with the reigning five-time champions. “We wanted to be paired up with St. Thomas Aquinas for the semifinals, but we messed it up ourselves by losing to Andover on the first day,” said Kapaun’s Audrey Grant. That left the Crusaders as a stepping stone for St. James, which

captured its sixth consecutive title with a three-set victory over Aquinas. It marked the first time all season St. James (46-0) had lost a game in a match. “They are just loaded with amazing athletes,” said Kapaun coach Terri Hessman. “Clearly they have strong tradition, but they have some of the most athletic volleyball players I’ve seen in Kansas.” Losing in the semifinals leaves little time to hang one’s head. Kapaun was forced to rebound quickly, as the Crusaders were served up a rematch

with Andover for third. In a tight battle, Kapaun responded, taking the match 25-21, 25-23, to finish the season with a 38-6 record. Andover finished at 37-7. “Third in our eyes is 10 times better than fourth,” Grant said. That sentiment held true for most of the south-central Kansas teams at state, as none could bring home the top prize. Cheney and Trinity Academy came close. Cheney (36-8) split the first two sets of a Class 3A title fight with Silver Lake 27-29, 26-24.

“They were as tight and intense as any sets we had played all season,” said Cheney coach Sara Walkup. The Cardinals looked finished early in the third set, however, falling behind 10-0. But a quick string of points put Cheney behind 15-14 before ultimately falling 25-19. The surge to the runner-up trophy was not surprising, considering Cheney’s murderer’s row of regular season competition. “You’re one step behind everyone else if that’s not something you attempt to have in your schedule,” Walkup said. Included in that schedule was

Trinity Academy. The Knights swept through pool play in 4A Division II, including a three-set triumph over Santa Fe Trail. Those two squads met again in the championship battle, but with a reverse decision – Santa Fe Trail took the title 25-16, 23-25, 25-18. “We made history at Trinity by winning our league with no losses. No team has ever done that at Trinity,” said Trinity coach Marie Gosha, whose team finished with a 40-5 record. “I am so proud of them. It was just great to be here and experience all this.” A trio of Trinity seniors – Annie Friesen, Jenna Gosha and Emma Hilgenfeld – made the state all-

Rose Hill (33-11) picked up two wins in pool play to advance to the semifinals, but fell to eventual state champ Bishop Miege. In the consolation match, the Rockets fell short of avenging their pool play defeat the previous day to Chanute, settling for fourth. The Rockets fed off enthusiasm all season, riding it to their state appearance. “Our passion and competitiveness and heart were unbelievably above average,” said Rose Hill’s Kynnedy Myers. Myers, a junior, paired with outside hitter Kylie Pfaff to create a formidable onetwo punch. Pfaff moves on next season, leaving Myers to lead the troops as a senior in 2014. The Rockets had their eyes on a state title this year, and next year will not be any different. “Our goal is not going to change,” Myers said. In 2012, Argonia was

Rose Hill loses Heartbreaker in Finals

hose that saw Rose Hill early in the season probably could see what the players were seeing, too. That is, an above average team likely destined for a fairly quick postseason exit. Those that only saw the Rockets early in the campaign are likely rubbing their eyes, double-taking to see Rose Hill nearly took the Class 4-3-2-1A state championship. “We had team camp, and we really didn’t look as strong as a team as we were in past years,” said Rose Hill junior Christian Helmke. “At first, we didn’t think we were going to go too far.” Helmke and senior Kenton Weber agree that the Maize South matchup 10 games into the season was the turning point. There, Rose Hill

took on a motto, focusing on becoming a family. That carried the Rockets all the way through their 1-0 victory over Baldwin in the semifinals. Helmke polished off a cross from Czyz Taylor for the gamewinner. “I was so happy. He tried running away from me but I just wrapped him up and brought him to the ground,” Weber said. “We just dog-piled him.” Positive thoughts were elusive after the title game with Bishop Miege. The Rockets allowed a late goal, but thought they tied it up when Taylor won a 50-50 Parker Smith ball from the goalkeeper. The Rose Hill referee disagreed, calling a foul. Parker Smith of Rose Hill heads up the “We all wanted that first place field against Bishop Miege in the Class 4-3so bad, to hold that trophy,” 2-1A finals.

Zach McGrath Kapaun

Luke Ketter Bishop Carroll

Zach McGrath of Kapaun and Luke Ketter of Carroll battle for the ball in the 5A third-place match.

Crusaders third again Kapaun Mt. Carmel lost its 5A semifinal battle with St. James Academy, but found a little solace in which opponent it drew for the third place game – another duel with cross-town rival Bishop Carroll. “It almost felt like a championship game for us,” said Kapaun keeper Elliott Fulghum. The clash did not disappoint. Rhys Allen scored his 32nd goal of the season in the first half to give Kapaun a 1-0 edge, but Carroll’s Taylor White connected with a bending equalizer in the second half. The decisive moment came when Kapaun’s Braeden Marshall broke free on the backside. Unchecked, he found a one-on-one opportunity and made it count, volleying a ball past the outstretched hands of Carroll keeper Luis Fernandez. “I’m just thinking it’s Carroll, and it’s our rivals – I have to finish, because I don’t get that many opportunities in a game,” Marshall said. “I have to capitalize on it.” Winning third place was not ideal for the Crusaders (16-5), who have now settled for that placing four years in a row. But there is something to be said for owning the occasion, brushing off the sorrows of the previous day to end the season with a victory. “No matter what the situation, when you step across that white line, you’re competing,” said Kapaun coach Alan Shepherd. “You’re a competitor. You’re an athlete.” Carroll (16-4-1) put puzzle pieces together as the season wore on, replacing seven starters. It came together enough to clinch an appearance at state. The Golden Eagles lost their semifinal game with eventual state champ St. Thomas Aquinas. “Sixteen wins is nothing to hang your head about,” said Carroll coach Mike Skaggs.

The running back gets the ball and heads down field; he makes a sharp cut and feels his knee buckle and falls to the ground. He’s unable to get up and feels a sharp pain in his knee and notices immediate swelling. The team’s athletic trainer and physician examine the knee on the sideline and notice extreme tenderness over the inside of the knee and increased motion with manual testing. What happened? The knee is a complex joint that can be injured in all types of sport. Some of the most common injuries are anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and meniscus tears. Planting and twisting on the knee can tear these structures requiring surgical repair. Feelings of instability and pain along with knee swelling should alert the athlete that further evaluation is needed to rule out a serious injury. This athlete was evaluated with x-ray and MRI, which revealed an ACL and meniscus tear. This type of injury often occurs from a non-contact injury in which the athlete plants his or her foot and twists while running. Sometimes a player with this injury may feel little pain initially and try to continue playing only to have their knee give out again while running, which could cause further injury to the knee. Complete ruptures of the ACL and meniscus tears are repaired arthroscopically, by using a camera inside the knee to visualize and restore the anatomy of these damaged structures. A brace and crutches are often used after surgery to protect the repair and the athlete may need to be non-weight bearing for a period of time. Knee injuries are common in contact sports. ACL injury prevention programs have been established and studies have shown can help prevent this injury. With appropriate rehab and sports specific physical therapy, most patients are back to sport within six months after surgery.

State Soccer

TO A HEALTHIER YOU!

Challenges for Derby For Derby (16-5), its journey to 6A state was a life lesson on battling through tragedy, an unfortunate path that demanded young teenagers face challenges like men. Midway through the season, midfielder Clayton Matzen was killed in a car accident. Perspectives changed. “We came together big time,” Derby coach Paul Burke said. “That moved us more together as a team – not that you want that situation, but they grew together. They spent every waking hour together.” The season became a dedication to remembering Matzen’s desire on the field. The Panthers also drew on the experiences learned from falling one game short of state the previous season, losing to Washburn Rural. “When we went to Washburn Rural, it was an experience for everybody. We had to learn what that type of game was about,” Burke said. Derby was knocked out in the semifinals 2-0 by Blue Valley Northwest, which went on to claim the championship. The Panthers took their second loss in the third place match, falling to Olathe East, which lost its only game of the season in the semifinals.

Emilio Montanez of Wichita East (center) jostles with Derby’s Caleb Brussow and Chase Sacket in the 6A state quarterfinals.

Looking ahead, Burke believes Wichita-area schools can compete with the top 11 players of the northeast programs, but have yet to build the depth. The team wants to make state appearances more frequent, but Burke will take some time to reflect on this year’s success. “I, as a coach, will live it up,” he said. “You never know when you’ll make it back ever again.”

KMC’s Allen selected Kapaun Mt. Carmel senior Rhys Allen has been selected as a midfielder to play in the third annual High School AllAmerican Game on Dec. 14 in Philadelphia. The game, sponsored by Choice Hotels International, features 42 of the top high school seniors in the country. Allen is a three-year letterman for the Crusaders and led Class 5A with 32 goals scored this season. Allen is one of two Kansans selected for the game. The other is forward Steven Enna of St. James Academy.

VYPE Magazine Youth Sports Report Wichita

Study: Young athletes continue to play through concussion symptoms Despite the widelyknown risks associated with concussions, many high school football players said they wouldn’t report symptoms to a coach and would continue to play even if they had a headache resulting from an on-field injury, Medical Xpress reported. In a survey of 120 high school football players, 30 reported having suffered a concussion, and 90 percent said they recognized the risk of serious injury if they returned to playing too quickly after a concussion. The majority of the students also recognized the symptoms of a concussion: headaches, dizziness, difficulty with memory, difficulty concentrating, and sensitivity to light and sound.

However, 53 percent said they would “always or sometimes continue to play with a headache sustained from an injury,” and only 54 percent indicated they would “always or sometimes report symptoms of a concussion to their coach,” Medical Xpress reported. Doctors from the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, where the study was conducted, said their findings were worrisome. “We aren’t yet at the point where we can make specific policy recommendations for sports teams, but this study raises concerns that young athletes may not report symptoms of concussions,” says Dr. Brit Anderson, an emergency medicine fellow at Cincinnati Children’s and the study’s lead author.

Anderson noted more research needs to be done into how to better educate these athletes – and how to more effectively spot concussions in high school players.

“Other approaches, such as an increased use of sideline screening by coaches or athletic trainers, might be needed to identify injured athletes,” Anderson said. It is estimated that up to 3.8 million sports-related concussions occur in the United States every year – and concussions make up approximately 8.9 percent of all high school athletic injuries, Medical Xpress noted.

this season and was assisted by Larry Allen Jr., Javon Garcia, and Eric Davis Sr. This new football program broke ground in 2012 and has set the bar high for youth football at the club. Coach Allen has literally come out of semiretirement after spending the last 20 years coaching in high school to begin this new football program at The Boys and Girls club. Allen is no stranger to the area. He was a star running back at South High in the early 1970’s, helping to lead South to its only City League championship in 1971. Upon

graduation, he attended Garden City Junior College where he was an all-star running back. Coach Allen retired from playing football after a successful stint at the University of Dayton. Coach Allen began his coaching career with the Wichita Colts’ football program in 1976, a Junior League program that his dad started in 1964. Coach Allen spent twelve years coaching youth football, mentoring some of the great names in City League history including Hall of Famer, Barry Sanders. Coach Allen also spent ten years coaching at Kapaun Mt. Carmel High School, three years at Wichita Heights High School and three years at Sunrise Christian School, and five years at Southeast High School. Coach Allen said he’s “on a mission” to create a football power in the Boys and Girls Club of South Central Kansas. But, he will also quickly remind you that strengthening academics and ushering/mentoring boys into manhood will be top priority as well.

Children and sports: Choices for all ages

C

hildren’s sports promote fitness, but not all children thrive in formal leagues. Want to give your child a head start on lifelong fitness? Consider children’s sports and other kid-friendly physical activities. With your encouragement and support, chances are a few sports will spark your child’s interest. Fan the flame by taking your child to local sporting events and sharing your own sports interests with your child. Consider age-appropriate activities. Your child is likely to show natural preferences for certain sports or activities. Start there, being careful to keep your child’s age, maturity and abilities in mind.

Ages 2 to 5

Toddlers and preschoolers are beginning to master many basic movements, but they’re too young for most organized sports. Keep in mind that toddlers who participate in organized sports also typically don’t gain any long-term advantage in terms of future sports performance. At this age, unstructured free play is usually best. Try: running, tumbling, throwing, catching and swimming.

Ages 6 to 9

As children get older, their vision, attention spans and transitional skills, such as throwing for distance, improve. They’re also better able to follow directions. Consider organized activities such as: T-ball, softball or baseball, running, soccer, gymnastics, swimming, tennis and martial arts. Carefully supervised strength training is OK at age 7 or 8, too.

Ages 10 to 12

By this age, children have mature vision and the ability to understand and recall sports strategies. These children are typically ready to take on complex skill sports, such as football, basketball, hockey and volleyball.

Contact sports

Before allowing your child to participate in a contact sport, consider his or her age, maturity, and physical size. Are the physical contact, aggressiveness and competition involved developmentally appropriate for your child? Will your child enjoy it? Because children enter puberty at different ages, there can be dramatic physical differences among children of the same sex — particularly boys. - Source: The Mayo Clinic

The Sumner County Drug Action Team :

The Spirit of Wellington and Sumner County Champions of Character Our caring community helps you discover who you are becoming— on the court, in the lab, on the stage or in the chapel—by providing the space and support you need to grow as a person, build your faith and have some fun! • Bethel boasts 160 student-athletes who have been named NAIA All-America Scholar Athletes. • Threshers have won more than 57 conference titles. • All athletes participate in service either through local activities or regional trips.

T

he Sumner County Drug Action Team is a nonprofit coalition whose mission is to reduce and prevent drug and alcohol usage in Sumner County. Our coalition is formed by adult and youth volunteers with diverse backgrounds, with the common interest for their community. The knowledge and efforts of those volunteers have made SCCDAT’S mission possible in our many communities. Sumner County has been blessed with great traditions. These traditions are upheld through athletics, academics, family and those in our community. Keep in mind that not all traditions are positive. Fortunately, the majority of our young adults make decisions and are good role models. However, tradition sometimes does get in the way of making good decisions. At times, a tradition needs to be broken and a new positive one put in its place. I would like to take this time to encourage ourselves to think about the traditions in their community and ask, are they worthy? Are the traditions good or are they questionable? Is the decision going to affect you or others? Are the consequences of that decision worth it? In today’s world, making good choices is becoming more difficult. As parents and role models, we have a stake in our communities and ensuring that the decisions of a few don’t influence us all. The saying “it

takes a village to raise a child” is very true. However, I would rather think of a community as a chain. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Together we can make the chain stronger. If one link is struggling to hold together, the rest help until the strength is found to become solid. The more we work together for the common good, the better our whole community becomes. We all realize this; the problem is people just don’t take action. Others cannot be expected to address the issues. If we desire things to change for the better then we must do our part now. It is time to start a new tradition, one in which we all do our part. Once again I encourage you to be a positive role model, so those around you can see the change and we all have a part in being a part of positive change in our community. Together we can make a change.
