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

It's Opening Week For Longhorns

Cross Country, Football, Golf And Volleyball Teams Begin Fall 2020 Season

The Fall Sports schedule is underway for Kimball High athletes as the girls golf team got things going by competing in the Sidney Tournament on Tuesday this week, and today (Thursday), they are back in action at the Bayard Tournament.

This coming Tuesday (September 1) they will host their own tournament with a 9 a.m. start time.

You fans are welcome to turn out to watch and cheer the girls on.

There will be open golf that day also, but call the Four Winds Pro Shop for tee times.

The Lady Longhorn volleyball team is also in action this evening (Thursday), traveling to Hemingford for a triangular that also involves Gordon, and then Tuesday (Sept.1) they are at home hosting Leyton with reserve/varsity matches and a start time of 4 p.m.

The Kimball High cross-country team will open the season at Scottsbluff this afternoon (Thursday) with a start time of 4:45.

The Longhorn football team opens the season at home Friday evening, hosting Hitchcock County with kickoff at 6 p.m. MST.



Jordan Greenwood is in his senior year at Midland College and it looks like he will get to have a fall golf season, or at least this is the latest word.

This weekend he will be returning to the Panhandle to play in the Pro-Am tournament at the Scottsbluff Country Club as a member of the Hays Roofing and Siding team. Other members of the team include his dad Kenny and Shane Hays along with one other amateur whom I don't know.

The Pro for their team is Noah Hofman, a former teammate of Jordan when they both played at Southeast Community College in Beatrice. Noah has turned Pro and is doing quite well.

There are three days involving the amateur team from Thursday thru Saturday and then the Pros close it out on Sunday. You fans might enjoy taking a trip north and watching some of this action!



Dillon Wise, our other Kimball High grad who is involved in college golf, has chosen not to return to McCook Community College this semester because of the coronavirus situation, but if things clean up somewhat Dillon will return the second semester and get in on the busier spring schedule.

He will miss only a pair of 18 hole tournaments that are scheduled at this time for the fall schedule.

Dillon will do some online courses in the meantime and also play some golf on the local scene.
