SALINA AREA CHEER POLL

Small School Cheer Poll Winner: Bennington HS By Matt Browning The Bennington Bulldogs were selected as the Salina-area cheer squad of the month. Bennington has 12 members on its team, which is impressive for a Class 2A school.

“Because we are a smaller school and it means a lot to a smaller community, it means a lot to us,” senior captain, Avery Feil said. Fellow senior captain, Madi Mathews, agreed with Feil that the size of the school and community make an impact on the cheer squad.

“Our numbers are smaller compared to other schools,” Mathews said. “But that makes us show even more school spirit.” Bennington’s facilities are tight and compacted, which can lead to a great

atmosphere on game nights.

“I think the game day setting is really fun,” senior captain, Kayleigh Harbaugh said. “We can pump up the game and make a neat environment.”

The Bulldogs work with the middle school cheerleaders throughout the year to help pave the way for the next group. They coordinate routines and perform them together at homecoming games. “We love the opportunity to collaborate with junior cheer,”

Mathews said. “We all get super nervous, but then we get more comfortable.”

Feil said the high school group tries to set an example for the future cheerleaders.

“The captains have worked with the junior squad to make sure they are at games,” Feil said. “We also taught them some basic stunts.”

SALINA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE TEAM OF THE MONTH

Nickerson Lady Panthers Basketball By Matt Browning The Nickerson girls basketball team was selected as the Wichita-area team of the month, which performed well in the Salina-area. The Panthers defeated Smoky Valley 52-35 on February 11th, which was their fourth victory out of a six-game winning streak.

“We have had several tough games in February,” Nickerson coach Jon McLean said. “Most of those games we just hung tough and got through some rough spots in the game and then made the right plays in the fourth quarter to come out with a victory. Our defense has been pretty good to keep us in the games. When our offense clicks we can be really tough to beat.”

going into halftime. In the second half, the Panthers never let Smoky Valley get back into the game, maintaining a doubledigit lead.

Josie McLean led the Panthers in scoring with 23 points, while post player Ava Jones chipped in with 13.

What makes Nickerson a threat in Class 4A is the amount of balance they have on their roster. Four players average at least eight points per game.

“This team has excellent size with two 6’2 post players in (Ava) Jones & Morgan Stout,” McLean said. “There are not many high school teams with the kind of size we have. We also have very good guard play with (Josie) McLean, Kieryn Ontjes, and Madison Ontjes. All three have pretty good ball handling and shooting skills.”

“The thing I love most about my teammates is our chemistry and the way we all get along on and off the court,” said Gilliland. “I also love that we are able to have fun while competing.” Competing for Sacred Heart gives Gilliland and source of pride. Being able to represent his school on and off the court is important to the junior. Gilliland has shared many moments with his teammates, but one stands out from the rest this season.

“My favorite memory from the season thus far was probably our win on senior night to win a share of the league title,” said Gilliland.

American Family Athlete Profile: Sacred Heart Basketball Insure carefully, dream fearlessly. Ally Cochran, Hannah Goetz, Audrey Smith and Amber Palen Four Salina Sacred Heart girls basketball players (Ally Cochran, Hannah Goetz, Audrey Smith and Amber Palen) were chosen as the American Family Athletes of the Month for February.

The past couple of years have been tough for Cochran, who tore her ACL last season during basketball season. She then had to miss softball and volleyball this season.

Goetz is involved in Junior Civitan, which is a community outreach program, as well as SAFE. Smith also runs cross country and participates in SAFE, yearbook and Culture Club at Sacred Heart. She will be attending Fort Hays State next year to major in psychology.

Palen is involved in volleyball, basketball, track and cheer. She is the editor of the yearbook, takes part in student council, the Vice President of SAFE and President of Junior Civitan.

“I am really honored to be nominated,” said Goetz, who participates in volleyball, basketball and track. “But I was also really surprised. It’s also cool to be nominated with my teammates.”

She said she has enjoyed her time at Sacred Heart. “I changed schools my eighth grade year from Solomon because my dad wanted me to have a good Catholic education,” Smith said. “It really stressed me out, but everyone really welcomed me.”

She also participates in Scholar’s Bowl and Science Olympiad and will be attending Notre Dame next year and then eventually to law school to become a tax attorney. “My dad when there and it’s a place where I always wanted to go,” Cochran said.

At this time she is undecided on where she will be attending college, she plans to study Communication Science and Disorders to become a Speech Pathologist. “I feel honored to be recognized,” Palen said. “I think this award is great because it recognizes the work we put in to be student athletes.”

Hellas Field of the Month: Northwest High School

6

Last summer, Hellas replaced Wichita Northwest’s ten-year-old turf in their football stadium. This time included a colorful addition that the whole school loves. “The previous Hellas turf had held up well and was still safe to play on but was past its warranty and it was time for a replacement,” said Lance Deckinger, Northwest Athletic Director. “Hellas did another great job installing the field and we even were able to add our school name and colors to the end zones, which was an addition the school was excited about.”

The turf installed is similar to that which professional and college teams play on and is a big plus for Northwest’s programs. “The students – PE classes, football, soccer, track, etc… – are excited to know that they get to play on a top of the line field, and we know Hellas is here to take care of us,” said Deckinger. “We appreciate the customer service Hellas has supplied Northwest and all their support of USD259.”

CLAY CENTER’S ACADEMIC ATHLETE OF THE MONTH

Clay Center’s Academic Athlete of the Month: Clara Edwards By Matt Browning Clay Center’s Clara Edwards is the Academic Athlete of the month for March.

Edwards is a two-sport standout for the Tigers, playing both softball and basketball, but softball is the sport she really excels at. She has committed to play softball at South Dakota, even though she is only a junior.

“I am grateful to have this opportunity (to be chosen as the Wendy’s Academic Athlete),” Edwards said. “It feels great.”

Being a gifted athlete is just part of who Edwards is as a high school student. She is also a 4.0 student and she would like to either get into physical therapy or become a pharmacist.

Trying to find a balance between high school athletics and academics was difficult for Edwards as a freshman, but she has since adjusted and now feels more comfortable. “I will watch film for a little bit then take a break and get some homework done,” Edwards said. “I have learned to love it all.”

Choosing South Dakota was an easy one for Edwards, who has won more than 30 games as a pitcher in two years for Clay Center and also led the Tigers to back-to-back Class 4A state tournament appearances.

Clara Edwards “I walked on campus and I knew that is where I want to be,” Edwards said. “It reminded me a lot of Clay Center and I know I will be very happy there.”

GIRLS WRESTLING

Making a Name for Themselves VYPE Magazine editor Matt Browning caught up with McPherson’s Kaleigh Marbut and Haley Schafer to discuss the status and future of girls wrestling. VYPE: Girls wrestling is the No. 1 growing sport in the country. Why do you think that is? Marbut: I believe wrestling is the number one growing sport in the country because as it’s getting sanctioned more and more girls are willing to try it because they won’t have to wrestle guys. I also know a lot of girls who weren’t allowed to wrestle because their parents didn’t want them wrestling guys. VYPE: What led you to getting involved in wrestling? What age did you start? Marbut: I started wrestling in first grade. I grew up around two of my male cousins who inspired me to try wrestling and I loved it! However I didn’t wrestle in second grade but I went back out in 3rd grade and wrestled through 6th grade then I took a break again and started back up in 8th grade and I’ve wrestled since.

VYPE: What are/were some of the challenges you have faced being a female in a male-dominated sport?

FEBRUARY 2020

:: NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS

:: VYPE KANSAS

8

VYPE: Wrestling is about toughness and dedication, but what are some other attributes the sport has taught you on and off the mat? Marbut: Wrestling has taught me determination and time management that I use in everyday life. Wrestling is one of the toughest sports so I know if I can do it, I can do most things. Schafer: On the mat wrestling has taught me that even in the hardest battles I can still win and be on top. Off the mat wrestling has taught me that nothing is given, everything is earned. These two things have built me to be the woman I am today. I couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunity that this sport presented.

::

VYPEKS.COM

Schafer: I was introduced to the sport at a very young age; I grew up watching my brothers wrestle throughout high school. In the third grade I started my journey of wrestling because I didn’t have a passion for any other sport like I had for wrestling itself.

Schafer: As a female wrestler I have faced many challenges. The biggest challenge I’ve had personally faced is simply being accepted into the sport wrestling itself. As it is a male dominated sport it never mattered if I was ever good or not. Everyone (not just men) never really liked the thought of women “taking on” a rough sport. I think still today most have a false image about why women want to wrestle. We don’t want to take over the sporting wrestling, we would rather share the passion and give different opportunities to young female athletes that we didn’t have and to show that we are more than just pretty things.

Kayleigh Marbut

VYPE: If you were to try and recruit girls to wrestle, what would be your pitch to them? Marbut: If I were giving

Haley Schafer a pitch to get girls to start wrestling I would start by telling them how I joined and the stories of some of the girls on my team that have joined. I would describe to them the opportunities girls wrestling provides them, such as: body confidence, a way to stay in shape, and a second family that will be there for you through anything. I would also explain to them that wrestling is a sport that is for any kind of body type and any kind of personality; we don’t discriminate. I would also make sure to tell them that the singlets aren’t as bad as they think and once you’re wrestling you don’t even think about it, because I know some girls worry about having to wear one. Mainly I would show them how much I love the sport and how it has shaped my life and made me who I am today. I wouldn’t be too pushy because that can turn some people away. Instead I would ask them to come to a practice and try it out and see if they like it. Because after one practice how could you possibly walk away and not continue with the sport. I would also tell them about the bounds that are created through girls wrestling and all of the fun memories we make, whether it’s the bus rides where we have singing competitions or fun games before practice and all of the inside jokes that have been created throughout the years. Schafer: If you want to prove to yourself that you can be, do, or achieve more than what you’ve ever believed possible. Wrestle! I have never experienced something so challenging to the point it would change my mentality for the better. Females are a different breed. Give it a chance and you won’t ever doubt yourself again.

WSU Tech Foundation Awards $415,000 in 2019 WSU Tech has created an opportunity for those affected by recent layoff announcements.

The Wichita Promise Scholarship will pay tuition and fees for eligible classes and programs aimed at either helping individuals learn a new skill, add on to their existing skill set or finish their associate degree.

By Matt Browning The WSU Tech Foundation had many accomplishments in 2019, filled with many opportunities to support the Wichita-area community.

The Wichita Promise scholarship awarded over $415,000 to 291 students in 2019 alone. Since its inception in the Fall of 2016, the program has awarded nearly $1.5 million in scholarships to 885 students.

“If you have been laid off because of the production suspension, WSU Tech is in your corner with short-term and flexible- and most important- tuition-fee training,” said Dr. Sheree Utash, WSU Tech President. “We have built these training opportunities with the laid-off worker in mind with short-term halfday classes so people can re-skill or finish their degree.” In addition to the Wichita Promise, the college received $100,000 from the band Metallica to train women in manufacturing careers. Of the 32 students enrolled, only three have not completed the program. “We have just been informed that we are

receiving a second Metallica grant for $50,000 in 2020,” said Gayle Goetz, Director, Community Advancement. “The second round of Metallica Scholars program will focus on bringing underrepresented populations and disadvantaged individuals, such as those living in high poverty areas, into technical education programs, like Machining Technology, Welding Technology, Automotive Service Technology, Climate & Energy Control (HVAC), Construction Science/ Carpentry, Information Technology, and Industrial Automation Machine Maintenance Technology.” WSU Tech also initiated a series of monthly Community Campus Tours to share information with the community about the industry leading, life-changing programs offered at WSU Tech.

Utash was also part of 25 leaders appointed to the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board to work alongside leaders from companies such as Apple, Walmart and IBM. Utash was able to bring U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Ivanka Trump to Wichita where they toured the NCAT campus and visited Textron Aviation. Trump had these words for what WSU Tech is doing for the community.

“What you are doing here really raises the bar for all of us and for educators across the country,” Trump said at the conclusion of a roundtable discussion on skills training at WSU Tech.

“If you’ve been laid off because of product suspension, WSU Tech is in your corner with short-term and flexible—the most important—tuition-free training,” said Dr. Sheree Utash, WSU Tech President. “We’ve built these training opportunities with the laid-off worker in mind with short-term, halfday classes so people can upskill, re-skill or finish their degree.” Classes start as early as March with most reskill classes completed in six to eight weeks and the schedules are only half-day. Additionally, WSU Tech provides personal career coaching by WSU Tech’s Career Services department.

“We understand that each person’s story is different and so we’re encouraging individuals to come in, tell us what they need and let us see how we can help them achieve their goals,” Utash said. “We are addressing concerns on an individual basis.” The scholarship is being offered through internal budgeting at WSU Tech as well as community partner donations, such as the recent Wichita Aero Club $10,000 gift.

If interested, people may call WSU Tech or email upskill@wsutech.edu to set up a time to come to the National Center for Aviation Training to speak with an advisor. Throughout the next few weeks, WSU Tech will also be holding information sessions.

“Our understanding is that because March 10 is the end of the WARN notice for workers laid off from Spirit AeroSystems, those workers will get their last paycheck on March 26 so this is a good thing for those who want to pursue additional skills,” said Keith Lawing, President and CEO of Workforce Alliance. “And of those workers who filled out a survey after the Rapid Response sessions, more than a third said they wanted to pursue additional training or school when asked about future employment plans.”

Student of the Month Kinsley Lackey McPherson High School

said. “I ended up dislocating my patella and injuring some ligaments on the inside of my knee.”

By Matt Browning

Lackey said he has enjoyed several aspects of his therapy.

Kinsley Lackey of McPherson was chosen as the Advanced PT Athlete of the Month for March. Lackey is a wrestler for the Bullpups and recently suffered a knee injury that required months of rehabilitation with Advanced PT, as well being put in a brace. During practice, Lackey’s leg got twisted while his opponent tried to perform a double leg takedown. “Thankfully it did not require surgery,” Lackey

“I have enjoyed learning all of the stretches and exercises to strengthen my knee,” Lackey said. “I have also been getting on the bike. I haven’t been able to do things like that in a while.” It has taken some time, but Lackey is beginning to regain his range of motion. “After months of not being able to completely straighten it out or bend it, I can finally notice some progress being made,” Lackey said.

Are you planning on undergoing a surgery in a few months? Did you know Physical Therapy before can help you recover faster and reduce complications post operatively? It may even save you money! Many studies show, when going into a major surgery, that high risk factors such as obesity, age, smoking and other comorbidities can affect the outcome of recovery. Complications are always a risk factor going into surgery and if your body is not physically strong enough to handle any of those complications, it can cause death. There are many factors that can affect muscle loss when undergoing a surgery. Prior to surgery, a lack of activity can play a factor such as someone who needs a joint replacement, abdominal surgery, cardiovascular surgery and etc. The person usually is experiencing too much pain or discomfort to do their normal activities, thus needing an operation. Another factor is muscle atrophy from bed rest while in the hospital and/or at home. Did you know some hospitalized patients spend up to 80% of time spent laying in the hospital bed? Lastly, there are studies how surgical strain can cause muscle atrophy. A study performed in 2014, titled “Merits of exercise therapy before and after major surgery”, of 4,733 high risk Medicare patients were studied on the effects of no therapy compared to therapy within 30 days of their total knee or hip replacement. It had a controlled group who did not receive preoperative exercises before their total knee/hip and a group who received 3 months of preoperative exercises before surgery. The preoperative exercise group had reduced delay in hospital stay and faster recovery, thus saving them money and time. The study calls it the “better in better out” approach. This means patient with high risk factors will stronger to withstand complications that may come their way post-operatively. There are many other studies that prove these results as well. If you are planning on undergoing an operationsoon, please ask your doctor if he feels therapy would be beneficial before and after surgery for you.

Salina Regional Coach of the Month: Salina South’s Seth White By Matt Browning Salina South bowling coach Seth White was named the Salina Regional Coach of the Month for March. White has spent the entirety of his four-year teaching and coaching career at Salina South, where he teaches business and is also an assistant track coach.

“It is awesome to be nominated for this award,” White said. “But I would not be the coach I am without the athletes I have had.”

In White’s previous three seasons, the Cougars’ boys and girls teams have placed in the top 10 at the Class 5-1A State Tournament. The girls team, in fact, have placed

inside the top five all three years, with a third place finish in 2018. The boys team finished fifth the same year.

“The youth program in Salina plays a huge part in both schools success,” said White, of Salina South and Salina Central. “Kids can start at a young age and bowl every Saturday, after the parents put some money down.” This season, Salina South’s boys team has the fifth best score in the state, with three bowlers averaging a score of at least 190. The girls team has a top ten score average.

Jayden Garrison of Little River was selected as the Salina-area Hog Wild Athlete of the Month for his performance against Goessel on February 7th. With the top seed in regionals and the outright league title on the line, Garrison poured in 29 points on 47 percent shooting. He made three three-point shots and made 8-of-10 free throws as the Redskins defeated Goessel 58-40. “We got it going early and took it to them,” Garrison said. “We scored some easy baskets early with our press and that let things come more easily. We wanted that one seed and to win our league.” Scoring is something that has always come easily for Garrison, who is averaging 22.7 points per game this season on 51 percent shooting, which is particularly impressive for a 6-1 point guard. “God has given me a talent and I am really thankful for that,” Garrison said. “But a lot of the credit goes to my teammates who always seem to find me when I am hot.” Garrison is just a junior, so he has not thought too much about his collegiate career. While he is also a standout running back in football, Garrison would like to play basketball at the next level.

JEAN CURRY COMMUNITY ATHLETE

Jean Curry Community Athlete: Nick Rost - Central

Proud monthly sponsor of VYPE's Community Athlete of the Month

By Travis Sloat Nick Rost may have waited until his senior year to pick up a second sport, but the swimmer soon realized he could travel just as quickly on land as he can in the water.

SALINA, KANSAS 70

Good Luck All Area Athletes!

“It was my first year ever running, and I ended up making it to our league meet,” Rost said. “I had a PR of 20:30 on the 5K. As for swimming, it’s been going on for about two months now, and will continue another month. I’m hoping to break both the 200 and 500-meter school records this year. As a team, I want us to medal our relays at state.” Rost is a senior at Salina Central, and he said he enjoys eating out with his friends and going to the movies in his free time. He also mentioned he loves cooking and baking. “I like to grill steaks with my father, and bake brownies for dessert,” he said.

The swimmer/chef said he is currently deciding between Kansas and Kansas State for his post-secondary education, where he will major in either biochemistry with a premedical emphasis, or mechanical engineering. As the Athlete of the Month, Rost said he embraces his leadership role, and credits his mother for nurturing in him the attitude of a champion.

REPUBLIC COUNTY’S EYANN ZIMMERMAN

Republic County’s Eyann Zimmerman By Joanna Chadwick Republic County senior Eyann Zimmerman considered himself an average wrestler throughout his career. He qualified for kid state wrestling six times, finishing between fourth and six place. He didn’t qualify for state as a high school freshman or sophomore, when he went 23-17 and advanced to the consolation semifinals in regionals before falling short. And then Zimmerman transferred to Republic County as a junior.

“It kind of clicked,” he said. “With coach Adam Polansky, it helped in the transition to me being a better wrestler. I went from 23-17 as a sophomore to 39-5 with 35 pins. “I was better physically and mentally. I had more confidence in myself.” Zimmerman finished second in Class 3-2-1A as a junior. In February, he was in one of the toughest regionals for heavyweights -- the top four ranked 3-21A heavyweight wrestlers were in his regional. Zimmerman was ranked fourth. “I just focus on what I want to do in every match,” said Zimmerman, who will play football at Bethel College. “It’s a confidence thing.” “When he moved here as a junior, he hit the ground running with us,” Polansky

Eyann Zimmerman

Polansky labeled Zimmerman as a bluecollar athlete -- he works hard every day, always pushing himself.

“He’s very consistent,” Polansky said. “He’s not going to wow you with anything. He’s not going to put up a five-point throw or anything like that. He’s just level…. He’ll stay within himself, he won’t try to do too much and that really helps him be consistent. No, he’s not flashy, but he’s big and strong and he’s tall. He also doesn’t get himself in a lot of trouble.” Polansky gives Zimmerman some of the credit for the improvement of Dallas Buss, who wrestles at 220. Zimmerman and Buss are practice partners. Buss improved from a losing record in 2019 to 20-10 by mid-February. “Eyann’s very fundamentally sound,” Polansky said. “You’re going to have to do the right things in practice to compete

with him. In wrestling, you’re only as good as your practice partner. We’ve really stressed that they get in those positions that are 50-50 positions, a coinflip position, and not just let your partner have that, but fight through it.” As for Zimmerman’s improvement, he credits Polansky.

“He has practiced a lot with me, which has helped a lot,” Zimmerman said. “He taught me much more…. Wrestling Adam helped make it much more realistic and helped me with the moves. He knows a lot, plus he’s strong, so he kicks my butt all the time, and that helps me a lot. “... I’m on my feet a lot. With heavyweights it’s a lot of head tying. You can’t really shoot on a heavyweight. That’s what (Polansky) focuses on with me. I try to fight inside, and he’s just a really strong dude.” Zimmerman has had plenty of tough matches this season, which prepared him to make a run at a state title.

“It’s all about the leverage,” Zimmerman said. “It helps you so much. You keep your feet back, you keep getting stretched out so he doesn’t shoot on you. It’s about leverage.”

This is Zimmerman’s final season wrestling because he’ll be playing football at Bethel College as a lineman. But he’s taken plenty of lessons from wrestling to help him in football.

“And I’m confident in that.”

“There’s a lot of toughness this year, and I’ve had a lot of tough matches, which is really helping me. “I’m focused in matches. I’m not worried about a guy’s record. I just wrestle how I wrestle and do what I do.

VYPE KANSAS

Polansky had watched Zimmerman wrestle as a kid.

said. “He got a couple nice wins last year, and it snowballed for him. He was dominant as a heavyweight last year. He works really hard in the weight room. He’s put 20 pounds on, all his lifts went up. He’s found himself this year in a dogfight at the heavyweight division.”

FIRST BANK KANSAS LEADERSHIP SPOTLIGHT

Leaders of the Month: Porclein Unruh & Bethany Herrel - Goessel Goessel High School’s Porclein Unruh and Bethany Herrel are this months First Bank Leadership Profile. The two varsity basketball players are leaders on and off the court for Goessel. “To me, leadership means always putting others before yourself. Being a leader is someone who can be a positive role model and lead by a good example on and off the court,” said Herrel. “Leadership means a lot to me because it is a chance for me to step outside of my comfort zone and make a difference in other’s lives,” Unruh said. Both girls can play multiple positions and love how coach Hoopes utilizes their talents. Off the court, the help start the FCA chapter at school. Something they are both proud of. “We got a lot of positive feedback from our peers. Many of them wanted to take this challenge up with us and start something as soon as possible. Once we had talked to administration they were extremely supportive and we were all so excited to get this program going at our school,” said Herrel.

Unruh added, “There has been a lot of positive feedback from our classmates on starting up FCA at our school. While it is not quite where we want it to be, the encouragement and advice from our peers has been great! We have also got a lot of positive feedback from our teachers and coaches, as well as community members.” Both student-athletes plan to attend college after graduation.

Campus High School Boys Basketball By Matt Browning The Campus boys basketball team was selected as the Visit Wichita Team of the Month for their second half comeback victory at Salina South on February 11th.

The Colts forced 17 second half turnovers and defeated the Cougars 64-55.

“We finally guarded in the second half and that defense led to some dunks,” Campus coach Chris Davis. “And that got everybody going.”

In the first half, Salina South shot over 60 percent and led by as many as 11 points in the first half, before going into halftime with a 34-25 lead. “This was one of the games you look on the calendar and circle,” Davis said. “People will look into the score and see we won, but Salina South played a great game.”

Last season, Campus lost five games and Davis believes those losses have helped shape this year’s team and how they cope

“They relish it (having the bull’s eye),” Davis said. “There were lessons learned from last season. I’ve said it all year long these guys are street dogs. They have fought for everything they have.”

DRIVE TO ZERO STUDENT OF THE MONTH Jasey Downing, Bennington Bennington High School junior Jasey Downing is a four-sport student-athlete and a member of the SAFE club. For Downing, being a member is important as she helps raise awareness on the importance of wearing your seatbelt. “My participation in SAFE is raising awareness throughout the community to wear your seatbelt and to not be a distracted driver. We use seatbelt checks to gather data to see if our awareness is helping improve over time. I am involved because I would like to be a part of a change in this area and make a difference for our future,” said Downing.

In sports, Downing love to compete and she loves who she competes with. “I love that my teammates and I, no matter what the sport, are always a family and are always there for each other whether it’s support in or out of sports,” Downing said.

SALINA ORTHO COMEBACK PROFILE

Salina Ortho Comeback Profile: Quinton Stewart By Matt Browning Quinton Stewart of Salina Central was voted as the Salina Ortho Comeback Player of the Month for the month of February.

Stewart suffered a left intra articular olecranon fracture with displacement during his junior season. He had surgery on October 23 and rehabilitated for nearly seven months.

One of the biggest obstacles that faced Stewart was being able to regain strength in his tricep. Now a year and half removed, he still does not have full strength and feels like he never will.

Even though he felt the pain, Stewart finished the game against Maize then also played the game after before getting an x-ray. “I didn’t think too much of it at the time,” Stewart said. “It was hurting pretty bad and I could barely catch a football. But I thought I could play through it.”

Stewart decided to graduate early from Salina Central and start his college career at Oklahoma State, even though it meant missing basketball
