Cloud County finished 27-25 overall and 12-14 in the Eastern Division of the Jayhawk Conference.

Bohlmeyer played in 46 of Cloud County’s 52 games and was the leading hitter. She finished the season with a .497 batting average. In addition, Bohlmeyer led the team with 77 hits, which included four doubles and four triples. Bohlmeyer finished as the team’s leader with 45 runs and led her team with 18 stolen bases.

Latta played in 24 games and had a .230 batting percentage. Latta had 14 hits, two of which were doubles, and had one home run. Latta finished with ten RBI and scored 12 runs.

During her high school days at Fairbury, Bohlmeyer earned All-Conference first team honors and all-state honorable mention. Bohlmeyer is the daughter of Diane and Kelli Bohlmeyer. Latta was named NCKL All-League Outfielder during her junior and senior years. Latta is the daughter of Bob and Stacey Latta. Bohlmeyer will be an elementary education major while Latta will study K-12 special education.

Mathews is pleased to have the two former Thunderbirds joining the Bobcat squad.

All-Star Wrap: Division I West Blanks East 36-0

By Eric Allgood-KREP Radio 92.1 Belleville, Kansas

Players from across the state converged on Beloit this week to prepare for the 27th Annual 8-Man All Star Football Games.  Coaches and athletes enjoyed four days of practices and evening activities to come together to represent their schools at Trojan Field on Saturday, June 9th.

The Division I teams kicked off first.  Both squads fielded stout defensive efforts through the first half.    South Gray’s Coulter Croft scored on a one yard run, with Macksville’s Seth Filbert adding the 2 point conversion runto give the West an 8-0 lead with 7:53 to play in the 2nd quarter which also turned out to be the halftime score.

That would prove to be all the points the West squad would need, as they pulled away in the second half, to win 36-0.  In the 3rd quarter, Macksville’s Seth Filbert, hooked up with Lincoln’s Wyatt Schroeder on touchdown passes of 15 and 10 yards sandwiched around a safety, forced by the West’s defense to lead 24-0 at the end of the 3rd quarter.  After an interception at the goal line by Pretty Prairie’s Tanner Cooper early in the 4th quarter stopped a promising East drive, Croft would deliver the knockout blow on the very next play for the West breaking several tackles on an outstanding 74 yard run down the left side line to make it 30-0.  Kiowa County quarterback Ross Binford rounded out the scoring on a 3 yard run with 1:33 to play to make it 36-0 and the West defense made one last stand stopping Lakeside’s Miles Thomas inside the 5 on the game’s final play to preserve the first 8-Man All-Star Game shutout since 2004 and only the 4th shut out in the history of the 8-Man All-Star games.

“Sometimes in an All Star game, all you need is a couple big plays to get things going,” said Kiowa County’s Clint Young, head coach of the West squad.  “We knew with their size, we’d have to try to make some big plays and we got that in the second half.”

Filbert completely four of his eight passes for 78 yards, including the two touchdowns for the West squad, while Croft accounted for nearly half of the rushing total with 90 yard on just four carries while scoring twice.

East head coach Sam Meyers of Rock Hills, was pleased with his defense’s effort despite the points surrendered.  “The kids played hard all day, and all week at practice.  We threw a lot at them and we just never could get our guys some space.”

The East squad was lead offensively by Lakeside’s Miles Thomas who toted the pig skin 22 times for 77 yards and added 54 receiving yards on 3 receptions.  Despite the shut out on the scoreboard, the West only managed to out-gain the East, 280-260 in total yards of offense.

The West now leads the East in Division I series, 8-4.

All-Star Wrap: East Runs Past West In Division II

The Divison II game showed the promise of fireworks early on as Moscow’s Osvaldo Granillo took the opening kickoff 73 yards for a touchdown to give the West the first points of the game and Dighton’s Guy Fulmer would add the 2 point conversion to make it 8-0. The West would add another touchdown to lead 16-0 early in the 2nd quarter on a 3 yard plunge by Fulmer with the 2 point conversion good on a pass from Ashland’s Austin Stebens to Golden Plain’s Cole Christensen.

After that it was all East as they responded with forty-six unanswered points to take a 46-16 lead and went on to a 52-24 victory.

The onslaught of East offense began in the 2nd quarter as B&B signal-caller Eric Huerter hooked up with his Falcon comrade, Cody Heiman on a 17 yard touchdown strike. Huerter ran in the 2 point conversion to cut the deficit to 16-8.

On the next drive, the East completed an 8 play 60 yard drive capped by a 6 yards touchdown pass to Frankfort’s Jonathan Keating to pull the East to within 16-14.

By Eric Allgood-KREP Radio 92.1 Belleville, Kansas

The East took the lead for good on a 7 play 55 yard march capped by B&B’s Mitch Engelken’s 17 yard run with 2:38 to play in the 2nd quarter as the East led 20-16 at intermission.

South Barber’s Blake Wagenbach caught a 4 yard scoring pass from Huerter to extend the East’s lead to 26-16 with 9:13 left in the 3rd. After a three and out, the West attempted to punt deep in their own territory but Wilson’s Jake Stoppel blocked the punt and returned it 9 yards to give the East a 32-16 advantage. Engelken struck again with 1:08 left in the 3rd on a 41 yard scamper, the two point conversion made it 40-16. After an interception by Hanover’s Brent Bruna, the East struck quickly on the next play with Engelken breaking free for a 64 yard touchdown run to make it 46-16.

The West added their only points in the 2nd half on a Fulmer 25 yard scoring run to close the gap to 46-24 after a successful two point try, but the East finished out the scoring for the day with Huerter throwing his 4th touchdown pass of the day and his second to Keating, this time from 6 yards out to give the East an impressive 52-24 victory.

The Baileyville B&B trio of Quarterback/Safety Eric Huerter, Fullback/Linebacker Cody Heiman, and running back Mitch Engelken, made play after play on both sides of the ball to spur the East squad. Engelken and Huerter, who missed the state championship game in November with injury, accounted for two thirds of the offense rolled up by the East.

“The line did a great job opening some holes and coach called the right plays at the time to get us open,” said Huerter. Baileyville B&B’s coach, Justin Coup, used Engelken the best, as he set an unofficial All Star game record with 233 yards rushing on 20 carries while scoring 3 touchdowns on runs of 17, 41, and 64 yards. Huerter tossed 4 touchdown passes while completing 8 of 18 passes for 78 yards. He also scrambled and bootlegged his way to 72 yards on 10 carries and intercepted two passes on defense. Fullback Cody Heiman ran for 73 yards and caught a 17-yard pass for a touchdown while one of Huerter’s favorite targets was Frankfort’s Jonathan Keating who had touchdown catches of 6 and 14 yards. Wilson’s Josh Stoppel made it a well rounded effort for the East with a blocked punt which he scooped up and ran 9 yards for a touchdown to put the East up 32-16 midway thru the 3rd quarter.

All total, the East squad rolled up 529 yards of total offense, including 451 on the ground. Heiman, along with Hanover’s Brent Bruna led an East defensive effort that held the West to just 198 yards of offense.

“That was about as big and strong a line as you could put together in this state,” said Cheylin’s coach Max Keltz, head coach of the West. “I thought our kids did a great job fighting through the heat, but we just couldn’t make enough plays.” Ashland’s Austin Stebens threw for 69 yards and Dighton’s Guy Fullmer ran for 2 scores to lead the West.

“We take so much away from this week as coaches,” said Coup. “It’s so great to come together and bounce ideas and experiences off each other, because you know the guys on the other sideline have been through the same things you have.”

The East now leads the West 8-4 in the Division II series.

MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz announced today that Athletics Director John Currie has signed a contract extension through the 2018 academic year, a move that recognizes the success of the department under Currie’s leadership while providing continuity as K-State surges forward toward its vision of a model intercollegiate athletics program.
