“Cross country. They are in the top 50 for ESPN’s high school rankings. I think they’re the only Kansas team ranked nationally.”

Your answers are always short, "yes, no, or none", is that because you feel the need to rush your answer so that you can be first?

It's because they're trolling. They get on at the right time, write two words, and everybody freaks out on practically a daily basis. And they get to laugh about it every day.

I thought it was goat wrestling. Not that I would ever say something so mean but in high school my friends would always refer to your hometown as a place where the women are ugly and the goats are nervous. Of course that was many years ago and I'm sure completely inaccurate.

Lawrence High School. Football till Wedd took over

Coach Wedd has had good kids but very little serious talent since the outstanding 2005 team that lost in a very close game in the State semifinal matchup. Barring a rash of injuries, this could be a good year. You may want to revisit your comment at the end of this season.

LHS hasn't really had good FB since the days when this town had just 1 high school. The split really hurt the talent.

I seem to recall that we had a pretty good basketball team. Our football was horrid.

Riots and demonstrations not to mention smoking of all sorts. There was a lot of drug use too.

Nothing. We stunk at everything. I don't think we had a winning record in any team sport.

LHS!!! The school was best at football. State champs (pretty much always) and featured in Life magazine (at the time it was a big deal).

The students were best at dragging Mass and chowing down at Allen's Drive-In.

I do remember back in my High School days that Lawrence was the team to beat, that we could, of course, never beat. My how times have changed.

If memory serves me right, we cruised down mass st. Haskel south of 23rd is where we drag raced.

My high school was a national power in basketball. 20+ state titles.

Football, at least my senior year. We went undefeated and won the KS state championship.

We had spurts of being good at many different sports throughout the years but I can't think of one sport that we were known to dominate year after year. Maybe things have changed though, I haven't gone to a sporting event there in years but I do enjoy going to my local town's home high school football games when I can.

Remember if you can't be an athlete then be an athletic supporter!!
