Here’s an update on some of what’s been happening in sports for a couple of local schools.
Cimarron High School
This week, the Cimarron football team plays Meade in an rematch of last year’s exciting game. The team is 1-2, having lost to Scott City and Holcomb so far this season, activities director David Ediger said.
The Cimarron volleyball team has a busy week. They’re 2-2 in league play and 4-6 overall. They hosted a Tri on Tuesday, beating Southwestern Heights 2-0 before losing to to a strong Meade High School team. Today, the team begins its second Tri of the week against Southwestern Heights and Meade in Walsh, Colorado.
Meanwhile, both the girls and boys cross country teams had a strong week. They competed in Hugoton, Kansas last Saturday in meet which featured varsity-teams from 23 schools four states, according to the event’s athletic.net page. Both Cimarron teams finished fifth, and two members of the girls team finished fifth, Ediger said.
The school’s girls tennis team played in Meade on Tuesday, finishing third. Both No.1 and No.2 doubles finished second, while both singles players finished third.
Finally, the Cimarron girls golf team played in Colby, Kansas on Monday. One player finished ninth in the event.
Meade High School
In football, Meade is coming off its first win of the season, against Southwestern Heights last week. Meade High School athletic director Mike Wilhelm said he thinks the players and coaches are pumped up for the game, but also said Cimarron is probably one of the best 1-2 teams in Kansas, and that Friday’s game will be tough.
In volleyball, Meade had a strong last week, going 6-2 and sweeping both Cimarron and Southwestern heights. Meade’s volleyball team is 16-5 overall this season.
Like Cimarron, Meade’s cross country team also participated in the Hugoton meet. Wilhelm said the boys team finished ninth, including Ethan Thompson, who finished fourth overall.
On the girls side, there aren’t enough girls in cross country to create an actual team at Meade High School, so the girls competed as individuals. Wilhelm said all showed big improvements over last year’s personal-bests, which was good to see.
