2019 Recap

Finished 6-4 after a 3-6 season in 2018. We had a great senior class who stepped up and turned things around for us. We started the season on the road for three games because our stadium wasn’t finished. Games two and three were neutral site games vs Caney Valley (at Chanute) and Humboldt (at Iola). Our last seven games were at home. We won our district for the first time in 17 years, won our first round playoff game vs Hutch Trinity, and then lost to a good Conway Springs team.
