This week, we spoke to activities and/or athletic directors from Spearville, Meade and Cimarron.
Here’s your weekly rundown over what happened this week with sports at some of the nearby high schools outside of Dodge City.
Spearville High School
The Spearville Lancers girls volleyball team went 2-0 this week, beating both South Central and Fowler this week.
On the gridiron, Spearville beat Ashland 54-8 in a half. It was the second time this season the Lancers had beaten a team by that score, with the first being just a week earlier against Minneola.
Cimarron High School
The Bluejays volleyball team is 10-10 overall and 4-2 in league play after playing in a tournament in Ulysses, Kansas last Saturday.
The Bluejays lost to Ulysses in two sets, Hugoton in two, and beat Dodge City in three. They later lost to Lakin and Dodge City.
Cimarron activities director David Ediger said he thought the team played well overall, showing as much consistency as they might have all season.
In cross country, the Bluejays ran in Stanton County, Kansas last week. The girls team took second, while the boys finished fourth. Courtney Clinesmith finished third, Morgan Clinesmith finished sixth and Madison Ediger finished 16th.
Meanwhile, the Tennis team played at Ashland. The No. 1 doubles team finished first, and the Bluejays as a team finished second overall.
Meade High School
The Meade High School volleyball team continues to do well, having beaten both Cimarron and Southwestern Heights last week to move to 16-5 overall.
In cross country, one of the boys finished second and the team finished fourth when they ran in Johnson-Stanton County. Meade high school athletic director Mike Wilhelm said the race was extremely windy.
“A lot of the times weren’t as good, but when you factor in the wind, I thought the kids did really well,” Wilhelm said.
