Garden City Football versus Great Bend 10-19-18

The Garden City Buffaloes made the familiar trip to Memorial Stadium to face the Great Bend Panthers.

A win would hand the Western Athletic Conference title to the Panthers. A loss would mean just a share of the title along with two other fellow conference schools.

Great Bend quickly let it be known that they wanted the trophy all to themselves. The Panthers scored about three minutes into the game. On the next Garden City snap, Dalton Miller would strip the ball away from the Buffalo and take it in for six more points.

The Great Bend Panthers went on to win the game by a score of 49 to 6.

Great Bend Cross Country Invitational 8-30-18

The first week of high school competition saw teams of runners head to the Lake Barton course for the Great Bend Cross Country Invitational.

Due to a hot and humid late August day, the race director decided to shorten the length from the normal 5K to a 4K (2.49 miles). This decision came out of a concern for the safety of the runners.

Great Bend’s Mayra Ramirez won the girls varsity race with a time of 17:01.9. Great Bend also took first in the team competition over Salina South with a team score of 47 to 55.

In the boys varsity race, Salina South’s Keetan Munsell won with a blistering time of 13:28.7. The next closest time was Great Bend’s Ryan Nicholson with 14:05.5. Great Bend took first in the team competition with 23 points versus Garden City’s second place with 46.

Garden City Football versus Great Bend 10-21-16

Week Eight brings the regular season to the close for Class 5A and 6A. For the game in Great Bend, the game meant more than just the last of the regular season for the Panthers and their visitors, the Garden City Buffaloes.

Several Senior players would suit up for their last time in a regular season game. Both teams entered the evening with an undefeated record. Add to all of this, the winner takes home the 2016 Western Athletic Conference league championship for football.

In what many saw as a potential high scoring affair, the game actually turned into a defensive battle. Each team would mount a drive only to stall out. They did manage a touchdown each going into the locker room at halftime.

The second half saw another touchdown for each team. After Garden City missed a late field goal, the game went into Overtime.

Garden City took the ball first and scored. Then they stopped Great Bend inches away from the end zone. The Buffaloes won with a score of 21 to 14.
