2018 Hoisington Winter Jam Boys Championship – Pratt Greenbacks vs Hoisington Cardinals 1-20-18

The last game of the 2018 Hoisington Winter Jam saw the Hoisington Cardinals host fellow Central Kansas League member the Pratt Greenbacks. This year marked Pratt’s first time in the tournament and the championship game. The Cardinals came into the night as back to back champions of the Winter Jam.

The game featured a back and forth nature almost like a boxing match. One team would gain a lead only to see the other side fight back and tie or take a small lead. Pratt took a one point advantage into the locker room at halftime.

In the fourth quarter, Hoisington took advantage of working the ball inside and some free throws to gain a lead. The Greenbacks tried to launch multiple three-point shots, but none would fall. The Cardinals won the game with a 47 to 41 score.

They now have won the Winter Jam for three consecutive years.

2018 Hoisington Winter Jam Otis-Bison Cougars vs Hoisington Cardinals 1-19-18

The last game for the fourth day meant one last spot for the Boys Championship game for the 2018 Hoisington Winter Jam. The Otis-Bison Cougars faced off against the hosting Hoisington Cardinals.

Hoisington came into the game with a plan to limit the scoring threats of the Cougars. They took way many opportunities for Clade Anderson and left the work on the shoulders of Maitland Wiltse. Wiltse accounted for almost half of Otis-Bison’s 46 points, but the Cardinals totaled 58 on the night.

The win means the Cardinals will play for a chance to be Hoisington Winter Jam Champions for a third straight year.

A New Way to Cover Sports – Season Coverage Pass

In years past, I’ve gone to games around the area either on my own or to provide coverage for a media organization. Many times I would post the photos I took from those games on this website for you to see. My hope would be that by seeing the photos, people would also purchase downloads or prints.

This year, I’m trying something different. I am going to let you help decide my schedule.

How?

I am offering what I call the “Season Coverage Pass.” What this is, for a small fee, I will add in a minimum number of games of your student athlete to my schedule an provide a set photos from those games.

At the end of the season, you will get all the photos on a disk or USB drive. During the season, I will send you an e-mail to let you know when I post more photos to your private gallery. If you want to, you can order prints from this gallery also. I will add more details in the future, but I also plan to offer custom designed and printed multi-image collage posters and or albums if you would like.

How many games will I attend? With basketball, I’m planning on a minimum of two. For Wrestling, I will make it to at least one meet.

How many photos per event? My goal is a minimum of 10 photos per game/meet. Though depending on how things go, there could be more.

Obviously, if I get more than one student from a team signed up, that will make it more likely that I will attend more events and bring my cameras along.

How much is the fee? I will be charging $85 per athlete for the season. As an introduction, I will be taking $25 off to make it $60 for any one that signs up their athlete by December 7th.

If you are interested in signing up your student athlete for this great opportunity, give me a call at 620-923-3258 or fill out the form below to e-mail me.

McPherson Boys Basketball vs Great Bend 2-7-17

In Class 4A Division I, the McPherson Bullpups currently hold a rank of fifth. The reason for this high make became very clear in their game with the Great Bend Panthers.

The Bullpups spread out the scoring and quickly built a ten point advantage in the first quarter. The score remained stable for a while, then McPherson kept adding to the difference on their way to a 57 to 30 final score.

One notable event during the evening took place when Great Bend’s Kody Crosby scored his 1,000th career point in the second quarter. He joins an exclusive club in Kansas High School Basketball history.
