All of these gridiron warriors led the Blue Comets to their best record (9-2) since 2013, and a trip to the Kansas Class 4A state sectional game versus Paola High School last Friday. The trip to the sectional game for the regional champs was just the seventh time in school history.
For volleyball, junior Sabry Trout achieved All-SEK first-team honors, while seniors Sophi Emiling and Makayla Schoenhofer made the All-SEK second team.
These volleyball players led the Lady Blue Comets to the sub-state finals.
“Well deserved for all three players,” CHS head coach Jory Murry said of her team members’ recognition. “Sabry led the team in aces, kills, blocks, and serve receive average. Makayla was second only behind Sabry in aces and kills. Sophi led in assists and was second in digs, even though she only played two rotations outside of the setting role.”
