Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

Jock Talk

The Fall Sports season is fast coming to an end. Kimball plays their final football game tonight (Thursday) with a 6 p.m. kickoff at Bayard. It will be a battle of 3 win-4 loss teams with the winner going to an even 4 and 4 season. The calendar also shows a junior high football game with Morrill at Kimball tonight at 4 p.m.

State cross country in Kearney tomorrow (Friday) and Kimball has 3 qualified runners including freshman Chantel Malson in the Class D girl’s race, and seniors Zach Wagner and Thomas Lenzen in the boy’s race. Wagner ran 6th at District and Lenzen 11th, while Miss Malson was 10th in the girl’s race. Congrats to these 3 Kimball runners, and also to Banner County High’s Deven Sullivan who ran 4th at the same District.

The Kimball volleyball team will be at Gordon on Saturday for the Western Trails Conference Tournament. There is freshman/JV volleyball at Morrill on Monday, and on this coming Tuesday, October 23, it is Senior Parent’s Night as Kimball hosts Sidney for a full slate of volleyball beginning at 4 p.m. The Kimball senior girl golfers and their parents will also be honored.

The weatherman says the winter storm is now history and we should have some nice weather this week, and this weekend. Chad Wise, Four Winds Golf Pro, is still wanting golfers to sign up for the fund raiser, triple play tournament this Saturday, October 20th. It is a two person event and you set your own tee times. A fun format where you play 6 holes of scramble, 6 holes of best ball, and 6 holes of alternate shot. Advanced tee boxes for older players and handicap is involved for all players. Call the pro shop to get registered and for more info.

An update on a couple of former Kimball Four Winds Golf Course assistants to Course Superintendent Jeremy Williams. Josh Kent, who left Kimball to accept the head job at the Mitchell golf course has now moved to Mesquite, Nevada to manage a course there. Aaron Koski, who took Josh’s job at Kimball, has now accepted the head job at Mitchell which Josh vacated. Both individuals were valuable personnel at our Four Winds and we wish them both well at their new locations.
