Spearville vs Hodgeman County 10-24-14

Week Eight of the Football season saw District Matchup with two long time foes as the Spearville Lancers traveled to Jetmore to face the Hodgeman County Longhorns.

Both teams came into the game undefeated. Spearville jumped out to an early three touchdown lead in the first quarter. In the second quarter, Hodgeman County woke up and put some points on the board. The second half was a back and forth affair, but Hodgeman County could not erase the edge that the Lancers gained early in the game.

Spearville won the game by a score of 50 to 28.

Central Prairie League Volleyball Tournament 10-18-14

As the Volleyball season winds down, the members of the Central Prairie League gathered in Hoisington for their annual tournament.

All nine teams were split into three pools in the morning. Then in the afternoon, each team went into another pool to play a triangular to decide their placing.

The Central Plains Lady Oilers won the tournament this year with LaCrosse coming in second and Ellinwood third.

Smith Center Football vs LaCrosse 10-17-14

The LaCrosse Leopards hosted the Smith Center Redmen for a football game.

It had been while since both teams had locked up. Though now the two teams enjoy different success than last time. LaCrosse remains high ranked in Class 2-1A. Smith Center is in the middle of rebuilding the football team.

The experience and size of LaCrosse showed as they opened up to a 21 to 0 lead and never gave it up. The Leopards finished the night with a score of 48 to 14.

KVGB Great Bend City Edition 10-15-14

I like to listen to AM 1590 KVGB in the mornings. The hosts of their early show, Patrick Burnett and Steve Webster promoted this week’s episode of the Great Bend City Edition show.

The reason for the promotion, one of them, Steve, would be the chew toy of the Great Bend Police Department’s K-9 Officer, Kia.

Since I work nearby, I arranged my schedule to be there in time to have my cameras ready. I did have to watch where I stood. One of the police officers warned me that if the dog saw me and not its real target, well I would become the new one. Given how fast on my feet I am not, I took that to heart.

Fortunately, Kia (pronounced with a silent A) found his proper target.

Below are some of the pictures I took during the show:

Hoisington Jr Cardinals Football 10-4-14

I was asked by a parent to come out and shoot a game of the Hoisington Junior Cardinals Fifth and Sixth Grade team. How could I turn down an opportunity to shoot some football under full sun?

Because of the sun, I took the opportunity to shoot some of the game using a 2x teleconverter, which made my 200mm lens into a 400mm. That is why you see some tighter shots than normal here.

Otis-Bison High School Volleyball 10-13-14

I have been to a few of Otis-Bison’s Volleyball games this year. Though, usually I’m there to Line Judge, which leaves little time to take photos.

I decided to combine photos from three matches into one gallery which you can see below:
