The final game of the KSHSAA Class 5A Girls Basketball Quarterfinals pitted the Great Bend Lady Panthers versus the Seaman Lady Vikings.

Great Bend jumped to an early lead. Seaman would chip away at that lead from time to time, even taking a lead themselves in the Second Half. The Lady Panthers went on an eight point run to take back control and went on to win the game with a final of 60 to 46.

CPL Volleyball Tournament – Otis-Bison vs LaCrosse 10-19-13

For another time this season, the Otis-Bison Lady Cougars squared off with the LaCrosse Leopards. This time, it was in Pool Play for the Central Prairie League Tournament.

By the time these two teams met, the Pools had been decided and neither team would be going on to the Semi-Finals. This fact did not dampen either team’s competitiveness. Both teams claimed a game causing it to go to a third and final game.

Otis-Bison won the final game, and the match.

Hoisington Cardinal Wrestling Classic 1-31-14

I made it to the Hoisington Cardinal Wrestling Classic for the last couple rounds. This was the first time I ever went to a wrestling tournament, not to mention shot it.

It was quite the experience. Once a round started, they moved quickly. I would move from mat to mat looking for the next pairing and trying to find a the right moment to press the shutter.

I learned a lot on how to shoot wrestling, but I know have far, far much more to learn.
