Last Chance U Returns in July


Netflix's Last Chance U: Indy Part 2 is set to debut in the middle of July. Coming off a Kansas Jayhawk Conference Championship in 2017 the Pirates were confident heading into the 2018 season. The Last Chance U crew will follow a drastic drop off as the ICC football team goes 2-8 in the 2018 season. With the camera crews already gone it will be interesting to see if the show discusses any of the events involving now former Head Coach Jason Brown and the German football player Alexandros Alexiou.


Part 2 will debut July 19th on Netflix.


Merrifield Makes Case for All Star Team

The Red Ravens were able to get a win in the second game to force game three but Colby's offense proved too much as they would win 22-12 and advance to the next round.

Caney's Kaminska One Strikeout Away From National Record



The hard throwing ace from Caney Valley High School Jace Kamiska, saw his consecutive strikeout state record end tonight at 32. In his start against Humboldt, Kaminska's first batter grounded out to first base. 

That put Kaminska's thirty-two consecutive strikeouts the second longest streak ever in the nation behind the record of 33 just a single strikeout away.

He did however end the game with 15 strikeouts in a seven-inning complete game which Caney Valley won 3-1.

Kaminska so far this season has 73 strikeouts in 27 inning pitched and he's only a junior. Kaminska has already committed to stay in Kansas and will be playing for Wichita State.

With high school baseball’s regular season winding down. The Caney Valley Bullpups are currently playing its best ball. The Bullpups have won six consecutive games including a 17-1 walloping of Neodesha on Monday.

Bullpups look to continue their dominance as they currently sit at 11-3 on the season.



Two Days of Good News for Chiefs Fans


Some good news coming to Kansas City Chiefs fans the last two days. Yesterday the team added more to a defense that needed to see some improvement from last year when they traded for Seattle Seahawks Frank Clark. KC sent this years first round pick and next years second round pick and they will swap this year's third round pick with Seattle. The Chiefs also signed Clark to a 5 year $105.5 million extension moments after the trade was announced.


This afternoon the Chiefs got more good news as the Johnson County District Attorney announced that he would not be filing charges against the star wide receiver Tyreek Hill in the child abuse case.


Royals/White Sox Benches Clear


Tempers flare in Chicago as the Royals and White Sox had a benches clearing incident in the bottom of the 6th inning. In the bottom of the 4th inning Chicago Shortstop Tim Anderson hit a two run home run and had a nice bat flip to celebrate which Royals Pitcher Brad Keller didn't seem to appreciate too much. In Anderson's next at bat Keller hit him with a pitch resulting in the benches clearing.


Things got pretty heated between the two mangers as well Ned Yost and Rick Renteria. Brad Keller saw his first career ejection and Tim Anderson his 4th. The game still goes one and you can tune in on Start 98.9 KQQF.


CCC Loses Assistant Coach to Rival

Royals 3 Game Win Streak


Walk-off win completes the series sweep of the Cleveland Indians. It was pitching that did it in the first two games only allowing 1 run combined in both games, which was a welcomed sight for most Royals fans.  It was the bats in the finale of the series scoring 9 runs, hitting three home runs(Duda, Merrifield and Soler) and the walk off single by Hunter Dozier scoring Terrance Gore in the bottom of the 9th. 


KC now on a three game win streak heads to Chicago to take on the White Sox tomorrow pregame at 6:30 first pitch 7:15 on the Mighty 690 KGGF.


RMS Student Breaks Long Jump Record


Roosevelt Middle School Track competed at Iola Tuesday, which is the largest Middle School Track Meet in the state. Several students placed first including Dantevius Boykin who broke the long jump record with a 19 feet 9 inches jump.


With 20 teams competing the RMS teams all placed in the top 10. The seventh grade boys finished 1st, eighth grade boys 8th, seventh grade girls 6th and eighth grade girls 5th.


One Streak Ends, Another Continues


Another blown save for Royals closer Brad Boxberger as Kansas City falls to Seattle 7-6 in the 10th. Boxberger's ERA is up to 9.95 with an 0-2 record on the year. Whit Merrifield's hitting streak came to an end as he went 0-6 on the afternoon and while that streak ended KC's losing streak continued they've now lost 10 straight games.


It doesn't get any easier as the 8-4 Cleveland Indians come to town tomorrow pregame at 6:30 and first pitch at 7:15 on the Mighty 690 KGGF.


Royals Hit Streak Record Broken


Not a lot has gone right for the Royals this season after winning their first two games.  However, second baseman Whit Merriefield entered tonight’s games on a 30 game hit streak dating back to last season. He needed one hit to break the franchise record.  In the 7th inning he laid down an RBI bunt single that tied the game and broke the record. 


Unfortunately for the Royals they gave up the go ahead run in the top of the 9th and couldn’t get a run across with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th losing 6-5.  Now at a nine game losing streak they finish the series against the Mariners tomorrow with pregame at 11:30 and first pitch at 12:15 on Star 98.9 KQQF.
