Track and Field regional performance list

Bobby Nightengale

The KSHSAA released the performance list from regionals, which basically stacks up how all of the state qualifiers did from every regional. The way I look at it, it's kind of like a state meet preview. Of course, some people will improve their times during the state meet in Wichita ...

Softball City Showdown Thoughts

Bobby Nightengale

One day after Lawrence High's offense provided a few blast-offs, Free State's softball team won on a walkoff Wednesday. The two games were completely different, but somewhat fitting for the rivalry. LHS can swing the bats as good as any team in the Sunflower League, and that was on display ...

Boys tennis at regionals

Bobby Nightengale

Free State High senior Stephen Anderson and junior Sam Solis had a state tournament berth within their grasp but they just couldn't fully grab it. The doubles pair fought back from a one-set deficit to force a tiebreaker, but ultimately lost, 7-6, 2-6, (7-2). "It was really hard, especially in ...

Athletes of the Week

Bobby Nightengale

Just a week after Lawrence High junior Rebecca Finley set a school record in the discus, her twin sister, Matia, topped it. Matia Finley had a throw of 155 feet, 8 inches on Friday which ranks 10th all-time in Kansas state history. Ottawa's Kearsten Peoples set the all-time mark at ...

One big piece of the Firebirds' success was senior Maren Kahler, who scored goals in wins over Shawnee Mission North and Olathe Northwest. For LHS baseball, sophomore Parker Kirkpatrick was great at the plate and ...

Free State baseball has terrible luck

Bobby Nightengale

There's plenty of types of bad luck. Sometimes when you're playing poker, you just can't get the right cards. Sometimes you forget your umbrella when it rains. Then there's what happened to Free State's baseball team on Thursday. The Firebirds stranded 13 runners on base, including eight in scoring position. ...

Athletes of the Week

Bobby Nightengale

Two future college athletes had big weeks and helped their respective teams in large ways. Free State High's Bailey Sullivan, a TCU signee, led the Firebirds track and field team to first place in the Blue Valley Relays. Along with her record setting run in the 1600-meters, she also helped ...

Free State's boys track and field team looking to surprise

Bobby Nightengale

Free State High's boys track and field team finished in fourth place at the Blue Valley Relays on Friday. Though they didn't win the meet like their girls' team did, that doesn't mean they haven't shown a lot of potential. Free State coach **Jordan Rose** had an interesting take on ...

LHS sophomore making his way as a relief pitcher

Bobby Nightengale

It's not easy being a pitcher when your team trails by a few runs. One bad inning, and you can take your team out of the game. Pitch a good inning, and you can only hope your team can give you a lead. Lawrence sophomore **Daonte Lowery** had to do ...
