McPherson High’s three losses — all to ranked teams — in the Ottawa Invitational last weekend didn’t hurt it in the state rankings, released this morning by the Kansas Volleyball Association.
The Bullpups remained No. 2 in Class 4A Division I behind Miege, which is first despite an 11-8 record as it plays big-class schools both in Kansas and Missouri.
MHS is 23-6 on the year. Two of its losses are to Lansing (No. 4 in Class 5A) and two others are to Newton (No. 5 in 5A). It also has lost to Goddard Eisenhower (No. 7 in 5A) and Blue Valley North (No. 6 in Class 6A).
Louisburg has climbed to No. 3 in 4A D-I and Abilene jumped a spot to No. 4. Hays rounds out the Top 5. Abilene and Hays are in MHS’ sub-state tournament in a couple of weeks.
Basehor-Linwood, Andale, Circle, Rose Hill and DeSoto completed the Top 10. MHS owns two wins apiece over Andale and Rose Hill and also has defeated Circle.
Smoky Valley came out of nowhere to appear at No. 6 this week in the Class 4A Division II rankings. The Vikings were ranked earlier in year before dropping out, but now they’re back in.
Hesston remains at No. 6 in Class 3A.
ELLSWORTH — Smoky Valley’s cross country team continued its sensational season with a dominating performance on Tuesday in the Ellsworth Invitational as it turned the meet into its own personal showcase.
The Viking boys had five medalists on their way to the team title, including winner Calvin Shannon (17:16) and runner-up Logan Windholz (17:45).
Also medaling were Zach Lott (8th in 18:52), Austin Lustfield (12th in 18:58) and Josh Peterson (13th in 18:59).
Other runners were Isaac Peterson (17th in 19:13) and Carter Couchman (53rd in 22:28).
The Viking girls were first as well and also had five medalists. They were Katie Adam (2nd in 21:52), Maggie Lambert (8th in 23:25), Sophia Peterson (9th in 23:31), Gracie Lott (11th in 23:48) and Cailey Cornett (14th in 24:44). Kaleigh Salzman was 28th in 28:48.
The Smoky JV runners also fared well.
Matthew Ruppert won the boys’ race in 20:36. Other placers were Julian Maldonado (13th in 22:15), Chace Penner (15th in 22:26), Chance Penner (18th in 22:51), Laurence Dahlsten (19th in 22:54) and Geoffrey Tubbs (27th in 23:42).
For the girls, Christine Richert led the way by taking 4th in 27:30. Other runners were Elena Schneider (7th in 30:24) and Alyssa Patrick (11th in 35:42).
“It was a great day for Smoky Valley cross country,” Viking coach Holly Lindquist said. “Our team goals for both the boys and girls teams were to finish in first place. We achieved it. Hailey Priddy and Jackson Menke are both injured and on the varsity squad. But we stepped it up and filled in nicely. I'm excited that we are at this point moving into league and regionals. It's nice to have great confidence going into these higher-stake meets."
HALSTEAD — A sweep of a triangular with Halstead and Hoisington on Tuesday has left the Hesston High volleyball team tied for first place in the Central Kansas League.
The Swathers were stretched to the limit in both matches. However, they were a runaway winner in the first set before losing the second. Fortunately, they rebounded in the third for the wins.
Hesston defeated Hoisington (25-10, 22-25, 25-21) and Halstead (25-5, 17-25, 25-11) to move to 8-1 in the CKL, 18-2 on the year.
Cami Richardson and Kailey Jo Ince notched 24 and 23 kills, respectively. Richardson also came up with 21 assists and Alaina Dunlavy had 19. Katie Thrasher had a great serving night with 11 aces, while Ince had 16 digs, one more than Richardson.
Hesston is right back in action on Thursday at Southeast of Saline and then competes Saturday in the Garden Plain Invitational as it’s a busy week.
