This week, we spoke to activities and/or athletic directors from Meade and Cimarron High Schools.
Here’s your weekly rundown over what happened this week with sports at some of the nearby high schools outside of Dodge City.
Cimarron High School
The Cimarron cross country teams ran in Elkhart, Kansas yesterday in the league meet. Last week, the girls team won their home meet, while the boys finished second.
On the tennis courts, the Bluejays also had success. The No. 1 Doubles team qualified for State after a strong showing at Regionals. The team is in Kansas City today and tomorrow, said David Ediger, Cimarron High School Athletic Director.
The team will also send one golfer to state, Ediger said. Aspen Bell will be competing at the state tournament Monday.
Meade High School
The Meade Buffaloes volleyball team finished up won the league-title on Tuesday as they finished up their regular season. The team went 23-8 through the regular-season, going 8-0 in league play.
“They did really well,” said Mike Wilhelm, athletic director for Meade High School.
The team now heads to Sublette, Kansas, where they will play the league-championship tournament. In addition to possibly letting the team finish as League Champions, the tournament also allows them the chance to build momentum going into playoff play, Wilhelm said.
Like Cimarron, the cross country teams were in Elkhart, Kansas Thursday night for the League meet there. The coaches seemed excited Wilhelm said, despite a few recent setbacks.
In tennis, the Meade tennis team had two teams of doubles-players qualify for state. Those teams are really excited Wilhelm said, and left Thursday for Kansas City.
