Hoisington finale

I’m in Hoisington for the fourth time in the past six days. Nothing against the town or the people, but I’m glad this will be the last time I’m in the Activity Center until September, when the Cardinals host their volleyball tournament.

I’ve got a break right now while Hoisington and LaCrosse are playing the third place girls game. Victoria played a doubleheader earlier with both squads winning, and Russell has a twinbill next, starting with the boys vs. Hoisington in the third place game, followed by the girls vs. Ellinwood for the championship. The Eagles defeated the Lady Broncos 63-40 in the season opener Dec. 5 at Ellinwood, and Russell will have to play over its head to win today. Ellinwood is 10-0, but sadly, it is assigned to the same sub-state as Central Plains, the reigning Class 2A state champion.

Russell’s girls played their best game of the season in routing LaCrosse 56-34 yesterday. Megan Boxberger was hitting just about everything she put up, including five 3-pointers, and Kyleigh Kasper dominated the paint on both ends.

Wednesday night at Buffalo Wild Wings Salina went very well. I stayed until 9:30.

I did absolutely nothing Thursday. The Seroquel I took before going to bed the night before whipped my butt. I did not get out of bed until after 3, and I had no energy whatsoever to go to Hoisington later in the evening for Victoria’s games. But since I could go today, no big deal.

This may be my last basketball for January. I’m scheduled to leave for Kansas City tomorrow and not be back until Friday, but by that time it will be too late to go anywhere, and besides, I have to be in Oberlin at 9 a.m. Saturday for a wrestling tournament.

It’s been an amazingly good stretch of weather this month. All of the snow has melted, and the temperatures have been hovering between 45 and 55 (7 to 12 Celsius) for the last week. I;ve been wearing short sleeves to Hoisington with only a sweatshirt on top.

I’ve been productive during the wait for Russell’s games. I got three stories written for Osborne, meaning all I have to do is write my column and I’m done with that. With the trip coming up tomorrow, that gives me a great head start. The more I can do now, the less I have to rush Monday and Tuesday.
