Dan LuceroMarch 12, 2021

In the last two seasons, the Golden Plains Bulldogs girls basketball team had run through their regular seasons unbeaten before stubbing their toes in the sub-state final, one step away from state. This year, Parker Christensen's group was determined to change that, and they did, reaching the state semifinals in Class 1A-II. The Bulldogs won all 20 of their regular season games, and as the sub-...

Dan LuceroMarch 2, 2021

The first, third, and fourth quarters contested between Colby and Norton in Norton on Tuesday night were as close as could be. It was the second quarter that doomed Colby, and ultimately ended their season. Norton outscored the Eagles 17-5 in the second frame and never trailed again in a 70-59 win in their 3A sub-state first round contest. Colby jumped out to an early five-point lead, but a ...

Lady Eagles Season Ends at Norton

Dan LuceroMarch 1, 2021

The Colby Lady Eagles picked the wrong time for their lowest offensive output of the season. Norton's stifling defense held Colby to just seven total field goals and a close game after one quarter became a rout as the sub-state hosts eased to a 44-21 victory in 3A first-round play Monday night. Colby led on two separate occasions in the first quarter, with Mackenzie Dodson's three giving the...

Lady Eagles Rally For Win; Boys Fall to Unbeaten Hays

Dan LuceroFebruary 12, 2021

A dominant third quarter propelled Hugoton's girls to a 56-41 win over Colby, while the Hugoton boys withstood Colby's fourth-quarter rally to win, 72-56. C...
