CINCINNATI — McPherson native Tanner Hawkinson showed the Cincinnati Bengals enough during the preseason to remain on the team’s roster for the start of the 2014 campaign.
Hawkinson will be entering his second year with the Bengals after being active for five games last year, getting into one.
Making the Bengals’ roster is quite a feat, considering their offensive line is regarded as one of the best in the NFL. It was thought that coach Marvin Lewis was going to keep 10 offensive lineman, but when the final list was posted, there were only nine.
Hawkinson, who started 48 straight games during his four-year career with the Kansas Jayhawks, has the ability to play multiple positions, which probably gave him an advantage over some of the other contenders. He was in a battle with former Kansas City Chief Will Svitek, who was among the Bengals’ final cuts.
HESSTON — If the Central Kansas League Preseason Volleyball Tournament is any indication, nothing much has changed this season.
Defending league champion Hillsboro — also the defending Class 2A state champion — rattled through the tournament undefeated to claim the title, but needed three sets to turn back the game challenge of Sterling (25-16, 19-25, 25-21). The Trojans earlier had to survive a three-setter with Pratt, so maybe the gap is closing.
Hillsboro had won pool matches against Kingman (25-20, 26-24) and Lyons (25-14, 25-8). In bracket play, the Trojans defeated Smoky Valley (25-20, 25-9) and Pratt (25-16, 23-25, 25-14) to advance to the finals.
Tourney host Hesston dominated Pratt 25-19, 25-13 to take third place. Earlier, the Swathers were 2-0 in pool play with successes against Smoky Valley (25-17 twice) and Larned (25-20, 25-10).
The Swathers then mowed down Kingman (25-13, 25-15), but were upended by Sterling (20-25, 21-25) in the winner’s bracket semifinals. They wound up 4-1 on the day.
Smoky Valley was 1-1 in its pool, with the win coming against Larned (25-14, 26-24). In the quarterfinals, the Vikes lost to Hillsboro, but came back to defeat Haven (25-22, 25-16). Smoky finished the day 2-3 for sixth place after losing to Kingman (26-24, 22-25, 12-25).
