Volleyball, cross country enter postseason

Two fall sports are headed to postseason play Saturday. Football finishes its regular season Friday at Centralia, and will begin postseason next week.

After two games at St. Marys Tuesday night, the postseason for the volleyball team is near. The Chargers will play at Herington for Sub-State Saturday, and  KSHSAA will release the Sub-State seeds Wednesday. 

Cross Country enters the postseason after a difficult regular season. The Cross Country team ran in the Mid-East League meet Thursday. Sophomore Rebekah Stuhlsatz finished 4th place in the girls race and Senior Eli Mumpower finished 9th place in the boys race.

Tennis brings experienced squad to regional

Tennis will enter the postseason Friday, participating in the regionals meet at Smoky Valley in Lindsborg. 

“I feel good about our team, but I definitely know our regional is very tough,” head coach Brendan Praeger said. The team is looking forward to the competition, but knows it could be tough to send players to state. “This is the most experienced team I’ve ever had,” Praeger said, “They’ve been in this position before and know the challenges.” With seven senior players, many have the experience needed to perform well.

At the start of the school year Mid-East League athletic directors and administrators met to establish changes for athletic events to avoid risks associated with COVID-19. While some changes will affect fans, the actual participants in most activities will only experience small changes.
