Cross Country: “So far the season is going great,” junior Kiara Stamati said. “Our team is working hard everyday and ready to race. Our biggest accomplishment is being able to communicate with one another in how we are mentally and physically feeling. ”

At the Heartland Classic, the boys’ team finished 14th and girls’ finished 20th out of 39 teams.


Girls’ Golf: “Our first tournament was really great,” senior Sidney Henkensiefken said. “We had one of the scores as a team in while.”

The girls placed sixth in their last tournament.


Boys’ Soccer: “This soccer season has started out very strong,” junior Cole Slack said. The team has won four games, lost one and tied won while earning a combined total of 17 goals.


Gymnastics: “It’s never what you expect
it to be,” sophomore Cierra Ladesich said. “The constant overturn of athletes keeps the competitions interesting because you never know how good your competition will be.”

In the girls’ first meet, they came out on top with a first place win.


Football: “We expect to win every game we play in, just like any team does,” sophomore Ty Black said. “If we win each day at practice, we will win in games.”

The Cougar football team is now 3-1 with a big win over the Olathe South Falcons in overtime September, 14.


Girls’ tennis: “I think senior Olivia Sloan (her doubles partner) and I started off a little slower than we would have liked this season,” senior Mabel Anstine said. “I can definitely feel the momentum picking up. Practices are going better and our matches have been very competitive. I’m excited to continue with the season and see how far we can we can go.”

The team is currently 2-1.
