It is the end of district play and we had some good and some not-so-good games. Bishop Carroll gave Hutchinson a scare, while Heights blew out Derby. We cover other games, but you have to watch the video to find out. So…watch it already.
Tonight was the final night of the regular season. And it was a good one.
Bishop Carroll nearly won at Hutchinson, which overcame a bazillion turnovers.

State volleyball is already up and at it, so are you at a tournament? Let’s get your updates and insights.
It should be a great weekend of volleyball!
Nathan Stiles, a senior at Spring Hill High, died this morning after becoming unconscious during Thursday night’s football game at Osawatomie.
Stiles was airlifted to the University of Kansas Medical Center during Thursday’s game, won by Spring Hill 99-72.
The Kansas City Star story has updates.
It’s Friday and it’s pretty much just 6A, 5A and 2-1A games tonight. Last night was a busy night with interesting district results. What will happpen tonight? Who will advance that we didn’t expect? Who won’t?
We get a nice opportunity to talk district football and regional soccer on the same night. So enjoy this Thursday edition of the two minute drill.
An old friend called tonight and said another friend’s freshman son had quarterbacked Spring Hill to a 99-72 victory over Osawatomie in a Class 4A district game.
Ever the skeptic, I asked for the dad’s cell number.
He answered and confirmed the score. Still a skeptic, and reminded about how my friend used to enjoy an adult beverage at college and pro football games occasionally, I asked for the Spring Hill coach’s number.
After a few minutes, coach Anthony Orrick called back. Coach, is that score right?
“Uh, yeah, it is,” he said, chuckling almost sheepishly. “Quite a game.”
Neither team is playoff bound, so this one was for pride. Orrick explained that Spring Hill ran the wishbone and attempted one pass all night. Conversely, Osawatomie threw on nearly every down.
In one 22-second period, there were 24 points scored.
The game started at 7 p.m. and “we just got done about 10:45,” Orrick said.
(In case you’re wondering, 171 points in a game isn’t near a state record. In 1927, Haven beat Sylvia 256-0.)
