You remember the game, don't you?
HAYS - The Hoisington High School wrestling team finished in a five-way tie for 23rd place at the Class 3-2-1A state wrestling tournament on Saturday.
HAYS - With second place in the Western Athletic Conference at stake, you knew it was going to be a Hays barn-burner on a cold, wintry Friday night out west.

DODGE CITY - Dodge City's girls handed Great Bend its first Western Athletic League loss 55-35 and Dodge City's boys completed a sweep with a 50-36 victory over the Panther boys.

Defending Mid-Winter Classic champion St. John (9-0) drew the top seed, but innovative scheduling gives the unbeaten Tigers three games next week. St. John will open against the Pratt-Macksville loser at 4:45 p.m. But the Tigers will still play in Friday's second semifinal game at 8:15 p.m. against the Pratt-Macksville winner, which is scheduled Tuesday. The other bracket matches Ness City against Nickerson and Larned versus winless Wichita West (0-8) in Thursday's games.
STAFFORD - Hoisington High, ranked third in Class 3A, swept the Stafford High dual competition with a 4-0 record to stay unbeaten in dual matches. Hoisington defeated Bluestem, 70-7; Chaparral 65-6; Lincoln 76-6 and Nickerson 74-3.
Great Bend's basketball team witnessed the future for Hays High Indians, and the future is very bright.
Great Bend's leading scorer Regan Unruh made the game's key play with an assist.
