Limited squads start season for Hanover, Linn

Linn’s Ricardo Cardenas hands off to Kevin Alvarado in the 4x100 relay. They placed sixth as a team.

Hanover’s Jacob Jueneman took second in the 800 and third in the 1600 at the season-opening Valley Heights meet on April 2.

Hanover and Linn started their track and field season on April 2 with diminished numbers as a result of several athletes participating in an FBLA event on the same day as the meet, which was at Valley Heights. The Hanover boys placed fifth as a team with 49 points. The Linn boys were 11th with 16 points. No girls for either team placed high enough to score points.

Donkey ball event has near sell-out crowd

The Washington County Booster Club hosted donkey basketball Friday night in the high school gym. An estimated 700 to 800 people attended; the 500 pre-sale tickets sold out. The event featured teachers, students, alumni and local business owners who attempted to play basketball while riding uncooperative donkeys. Student Lauren Simmons, above right, and PE teacher Doug Thompson, above left, attempted to drag their stubborn donkeys after a loose ball. Players had to ride -- or hold the leads of -- their donkeys during the game.

This was one of many of USD 108 physical education teacher Doug Thompson’s many failed attempts at getting onto his donkey. He would get up on one side and slide off the other.

Garrett Stewart, above, fell from his bucking miniature donkey during the second round of games. Several people were unseated from their donkeys during the games.

After many attempts to get onto his uncooperative donkey Dustin Rogge threw a leg over the animal so that he could become an eligible passer. Players were required to be on their donkeys to travel down the court, pass or shoot the ball.

Teacher Bobbi Smith had an open shot because defenders were stuck at the other end of the court on stubborn donkeys.

Wildcats give six-time champ their strongest challenge yet

Senior Macy Doebele drives around a Central Plains player. She averaged a double-double at the tourney.

The Hanover girls found themselves in the state championship game for the third year in a row on Saturday in Dodge City. Though the Hanover girls were the two-time defending state champions in Class 1A-Div. 1, their Class 1A state championship game opponent was the Central Plains Oilers, who were the five-time defending Class 2A state champions.

Hanover was competitive in the first half, only trailing 21-27 at the break, before Central Plains pulled ahead to win 52-34 over the Lady Wildcats. This is the closest game the Oilers have had all season. Their six-straight state championships is a record.

Hanover struggled with shooting efficiency in the game, making just 24.4 percent of their shots and going 0/8 in the second half with 3-pointers. Central Plains shot 37.5 percent and made 15 of 16 free throws.

Hanover 10 11 3 10 34 Central Plains 12 15 11 14 52

Points – Doebele 15, Lohse 9, E. Bruna 6, Hynek 2, Hendrickson 1, Stallbaumer 1.
