Kearney, Mo., May 24, 2021: Kearney High School student-athletes performed well in several end-of-season matchups last week and over the weekend. This year’s Senior Athletics Awards were also announced recently. Congratulations to all of these Bulldogs!
The KHS baseball squad defeated both Lincoln College Preparatory Academy and Platte County R-3 in district playoff games last week at the Kansas City Urban Youth Academy. Their season ended after a hard-fought, rain-soaked game Saturday morning against top-ranked Smithville High School. They earned second place in the district and have a bright future with a young squad.
Jaron McClaran took 62nd and Brayden Schweizer earned 69th place in the state golf tournament last week.
The KHS girls soccer squad lost a tough game last week to Platte County in the district final. We came out with a 1-0 lead with a goal from Caysi Brown. In the second half, Platte County tied up the game. We went into overtime, where Platte County scored the game-winning goal, ending the game 2-1. We are so proud of this squad for earning second in the district this season!
Last Thursday and Friday, Kolby Smothers and Grant Woltkamp competed in the Class 2 State Tennis Tournament in Springfield. Smothers and Woltkamp played some of the greatest matches of their season, and placed fourth in the tournament!
On Saturday, the Bulldog boys track & field team traveled to Odessa to compete in the Class 4 Sectionals and it was a very successful day for KHS. We placed first overall, and we have qualified 11 events for the state meet on Friday, May 28, in Jefferson City. This is the largest contingent ever to qualify for state under Coach Scott Crall.
The KHS girls track & field team had a very successful day in Odessa competing for state qualifications at the sectional track meet. The team finished runner-up to St. Theresa’s Academy but did beat Platte County for the first time this season.
This group will compete Friday in Jefferson City at the Class 4 State Track Meet.
