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

Fall Sports Winding Down For Longhorn Teams

The Fall Sports season for Kimball High is drawing to a close with the girls state golf finishing early this week.

The District cross country will run today (Thursday) at Bridgeport beginning at 3 p.m..

The volleyball team will be in action at the SPVA Conference Tournament in Grant this Saturday -- October 19th and their sub-district play is coming up the week of October 28th.

Football this Friday at Sutherland with a 6 p.m. kickoff time, and the Horns end the season at home with Bayard next Friday – October 25th, and it has been designated Homecoming night.



This past Friday night was Senior Parent night for the 10 Kimball High football players and what a loss this will be to the program as there were only 20 players listed on the program Friday counting the 10 seniors, some of who were sidelined with injuries.

The 10 seniors who will leave the program next year include Austin Lulf, Brendan Walker, Arthur Laveran, Jacob Withrow, Brayden Tyan, Blayanne Rohde, Ethan Greenwood, Dakota Lewis, Beau Hanks, and Stephen Bateman.

The final home volleyball match is October 22nd with Perkins County with 5 seniors to be honored with their parents including Nicole Delaplane, Jenna Greenwood, Ali Andreeti, Bailie Brower, and Sierra Rutledge.

The only senior listed on the cross country team is Lane Wasielewski, and the lone senior girl golfer is Carli Wurdeman, and I assume they will be honored along with the volleyball players.

Four Winds Golf Course

Play continues at the Four Winds Golf Course on the nice days, and this past weekend the 2-person triple play Fund Raiser Tournament was held at the Four Winds. A small turnout with two places paid. The winning team was a father-son team from Scottsbluff of Craig and Les Hall shooting a round of 64 with handicap. Kevin Thomas and Randy Bohac teamed up to shoot 66.1 for second place.

The Huskers

I have tried to keep my comments to myself in regards to the Nebraska football team. I love the Huskers and always will, but this past Saturday’s loss was embarrassing, something even Coach Scott Frost said. Maybe when AD Moos gets to build his 155 million dollar football update he has planned that will solve the problem! This is meant to be sarcastic.
