Caney Valley Prepares for Sub State


The Caney Valley Bullpups closed the 2019-2020 regular season as one of the hottest teams in class 3A as they have won nine straight games going into the Sub State playoffs next week. 


The Bullpups started the season losing three out of their first four games but finished the season from there at 14-2 including the nine game winning streak to close the regular season. 


They will have a tough Sub State to get thru if they want to advance to the 3A State Tournament in Hutchinson. Caney Valley is the 3-seed while the path in front of them could feature 2-seed Wichita Collegiate and 1-seed Cheney. 


Caney Valley will begin their Sub State run on Monday night with a quarterfinal match-up at home against Wichita Trinity. Wichita Trinity is the 6-seed and have an overall record of 8-12 but they have played solid down the stretch going 5-2 over their final seven games. 


The game on Monday night will be played at Caney Valley high school at 6:00 PM and can be heard on 690 KGGF AM. 

ICC Women Fall While Men Advance


ICC will send one of its basketball teams to Dodge City after the women fell to Colby 66-63 in overtime, while the men emerged victorious over Seward County 84-74.


The 5th-seeded Pirate women fought hard but were ultimately upset by Colby, who came into the Region VI Division I tournament as the 12-seed. Independence will finish its 2019-2020 campaign with a record of 17-11.


The men came into the tournament as the 7-seed, and led most of the way against Seward County. The Saints could not keep up with Indy's shooting effort, as multiple Pirates crossed the double-digit threshold. The team shot 61 percent in the second half, with Demetric Horton leading the way in a 23-point performance. Terry Collins Jr. added 20 points.


Following last night's games, the Independence men will advance to Dodge City and will have an opportunity for to avenge the women when they take on 2nd-seeded Colby. That contest is set to get underway this Sunday at 7 pm.

Coffeyville Sends Both Teams to Quarterfinals


The Coffeyville women held off a very aggressive Garden City squad while the men cruised to an easy victory over Dodge City in the first round of the Region VI Division I basketball tournament.


The women's game was close throughout, with the 14th-seeded Bronc Busters looking to play spoiler. With Faith Simpson picking up two fouls in the first quarter, Coffeyville struggled at times to break away from the aggressive play that Garden City showed the entire night. While Coffeyville trailed by four at the half, the Red Ravens were able to jump back out in front in third quarter to set up what would be the most interesting moment of the night. With Coffeyville leading by 4 and just two minutes to play, Ania Markowska got into a verbal altercation with Garden City's Jaleah Bellany following a Bronc Busters foul. Bellany received a technical from the ref to go along with the original foul. While Markowska didn't receive a technical for her side of the incident, Garden City's Donetria McGee also received a technical after sharing words with a referee. That would send Kailyn Lay to the free throw line for multiple opportunites, with Lay making good on those opportunities and putting the game away for the Red Ravens. Final score was 79-65, with Simpson recording a season-high 37 points after going 17-22 from the field. Markowska was the iron woman of the game, playing all 40 minutes.


The men's game was certainly not as close, with the Coffeyville men jumping on Dodge City early. Coffeyville was dominant on both sides of the ball, jumping out to a 26-point lead before the half. The Red Ravens could also not be stopped on the offensive glass, picking up 27 rebounds and almost outpacing their defensive rebounding effort. The team shot 41 percent from the field and also made 18 of 20 free throws, which was instrumental in pulling away with the intial lead. With the lead firmly squared away, Coffeyville would let the Conquistadors get to within 22 in the second-half before eventually pulling away once again for the 36-point victory, 97-63. All ten Red Ravens scored during the course of the game, with Meikkel Murray leading all Coffeyville scorers with 19 and being joined in double-digits by Manny Crump (17), Larry White (13), Tony Hutson (11), and Bostyn Holt (10). 


Both Coffeyville teams will take on Barton County in the quarterfinals, which will be played at the United Wireless Arena in Dodge City. The women will play at 5 p.m. on Saturday while the men will take the floor at 3 p.m. on Sunday. Both games will be broadcast on US98, KUSN.

K-State Drops 8th Straight Game


Kansas State men's basketball took their 8th straight loss on Tuesday night at #2 Baylor, 85-66. It was the Bears' most lobsided win this season inside conference play. 


Baylor (25-2, 14-1) jumped out to an 11-2 lead in the first five minutes and never looked back. K-State (9-19, 2-13) trailed by as many as 28 in the first half and allowed Baylor to score 50 first half points. 


K-State has not won since late January and they have lost all of their conference road games this season. Cartier Diarra led the Wildcats in scoring with 19 points. The Bears were led in scoring by Matthew Mayer with a career high 19.

Caney Valley Closes Season with 9th Straight Win


The Caney Valley Bullpups will enter the playoffs next week riding high on a nine game winning streak as they closed the regular season on Tuesday night with an 85-49 win at Fredonia. 


The Bullpups (15-5) will either be the three or four seed in the 3A Cheney Sub State depending on the finish of Eureka who entered last night with the same record as Caney Valley. 


Fredonia will be the 7th seed in the 3A Galena Sub State as the Yellowjackets finish the regular season at 8-12 overall. 


Caney Valley opened the game with quick pace and never looked back. They led 22-10 at the end of the first quarter and then poured in 27 points in the second quarter to lead 49-28 at halftime. There was a running clock issued in the fourth quarter. 


The Bullpups were led by Trey Richie with 26 points and eight rebounds. Cam Melchiori and Jace Kaminska also reached double figures with 19 and 18 respectively. 


Fredonia was led in scoring by Layne Mayeske with 18 points. 

Seniors Honored Last Regular Season Game

Coffeyville wrapped up their regular season with Senior Night matchups against Pittsburg. Unfortunately for the Nado the Dragons would take both matchups with the girls winning 49-35 and the boys winning 75-41. The Lady Nado Seniors honored were Jalisea Senior, Ashley Isle, Amelia Maulsby and Shonase Collins. Despite it being Senior Night it was the juniors who put on the show with Ella Hendrickson having 13 for Pittsburg and Kylie Speer and Adyson Peck both having 11 for the Lady Nado. The girls will either finish 15th or 16th and will likely face either KC Piper or Eudora. 

The Nado boys honored their Seniors Taquise Newton and Seth Bromley. FKHS had their hands full with Gavyn Elkamil who had an impressive 27 points. Darrell Jones lead the Nado in scoring with 13. The Nado boys season likely came to an end tonight. In a special moment at the end of the game Senior Manager Jeremiah Jeffries got game action and scored the final two points of the game.

Coffeyville Baseball Takes Two Against Baker JV


Coffeyville found no shortage of runs on Saturday, run-ruling the Baker University JV squad 15-2 and 17-1 in an afternoon double-header.


The Wildcats found their only two runs in the first game in the bottom of the first, putting starting pitcher Alex Galvez in a bit of a bind. However, Coffeyville would promptly pick up three runs in the bottom of the first, two of which came off of a two-run home run from Riley Higgins. The Red Ravens would proceed to lead the rest of the game, scoring 6 runs in the second inning and 6 more in the fourth. Game 1 would end via the run-rule after the top of the fifth, with Coffeyville leading 15-2.


Game 2 saw Coffeyville jump out to a 2-0 lead after the first inning, and after a scoreless second, it looked like the game might be a little closer than the first contest. Unfortunately for the Wildcats, Coffeyville would come alive in the third inning and beyond, tacking on 15 more runs. Three home runs were hit in the game, with Adrian Perez, Brett Kennett, and Tyler Benefiel all putting home runs outside the left field fence. Starting pitcher Chat Hayes went four innings and struck out six, giving up just one hit and only three baserunners. Ciffeyville would take the victory after the top of the seventh, leading 17-1.


Coffeyville improves to 3-4 on the season with the victories. The Red Ravens will meet the Wildcats for a rematch on Monday, once again at Walter Johnson Park in Coffeyville. Our next KQQF broadcast of Red Ravens baseball will be next Thursday, when Hutchinson comes to town.

Grizzlies Spoil Homecoming for Nado


Homecoming night in Coffeyville as Maddison Adamson and Jayden Crawford were crowned Queen and King.  Unfortunately for the Nado they would drop both games to the Labette County Grizzlies with the girl falling 69-35 and the boys in a close one 58-54.  The Lady Grizzlies saw an outstanding performance from Sophmore Madison Brannin with a 26 point night and Senior Sydnie Stice who added 14.  Lady Nado Juniors Adyson Peck and Kylie Speer did their best to match the LCHS duo as they had 16 and 13 but it just wasn't enough.  The Nado boys saw the best games of the season from Junior Tariq Logan and Sophmore Ethan Viets as they scored 21 and 16 but the Grizzlies were able to match that with 21 points from Sophmore Eli Hestand and 19 points from Senior Ethan Jameson.


Last game of the season with Senior Night on Tuesday the Nado welcome Pittsburg to town.  The Nado girls currently set at the 14th spot in the Class 4A rankings they would need a win and an Atchison loss to move up a spot.  The Nado boys currently set at 18th and would need a win and losses from both Baldwin and Topeka-Hayden to move up.

Bullpups Extend Winning Streak


The Caney Valley Bullpups put together an impressive effort on Friday night winning at Erie 81-62 to extend their winning streak to eight straight games.

Two OT Games in Nado Matchup

Fort Scott completes the season sweep of Field Kindley as the Nado girls fall 66-61 and the Nado boys fall 52-48 as both games go into overtime. The Nado girls didn't see a lead until 10 seconds left in the game as Kylie Speer hit a 3 to give Coffeyville the 1 point lead but a free throw by Ella Beth for the Lady Tigers would send it into OT where Fort Scott would pull away for that win. The boys matchup was a back and forth battle as the lead was never more than 6. FKHS had an opportunity for the win with 2 secs but couldn't get the shot to fal and the Tigers would pull away in OT. 

Labette County comes to town on Friday and it's Homecoming for the Nado girls tip off at 6:00. 

West Elk Upsets Cedar Vale

The West Elk Patriots snapped Cedar Vale's 16 game winning streak on Tuesday night with a 42-36 win on their home court.

Our next scheduled game of the week will be on Friday as Caney Valley travels to Erie.

K-State Drops 5th Straight

Coffeyville Rocks Neosho, Wins Both Games


Coffeyville's two teams continued their winning streaks on Saturday, with the women taking down Neosho County 83-69 and the men winning 71-62.


The women's game was a scrappy affair, with the fouls racking up and the two teams making frequent trips to the free throw line. Neosho was the main benefactor, taking 35 free throw attempts and making 23 of them. However, Coffeyville was able to overcome the foul trouble and used a balanced scoring attack to take a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter. Although the Panthers would find a small run near the end of the game, the Red Ravens would coast to a 24-5 record and a 14-5 Jayhawk Conference record.


The men's game would be a close one, with both teams never really leaving the other behind. Coffeyville, playing without Manny Crump, found themselves playing with a smaller lineup more often than not. Kymani Dunham would struggle with fouls throughout the game, but Bostyn Holt would find himself to be fairly effective in the paint. Holt picked up 17 points off the bench to lead the team. The Red Ravens were also effective in their shot selection, shooting 47 percent from the field. Coffeyville improves to 21-8 this season and 13-6 in the conference.


Coffeyville will take next Wednesday off before finishing up the regular season next Saturday against Butler. The women will start at 5 p.m. with the men to follow afterward.

Nado Drop Both in Chanute

An unfortunate end to a long road trip for both Nado teams as the girls fall to the Lady Blue Comets 68-45 and the boys fall 64-36. A slow start would hurt the Nado girls as they ended the 1st quarter down 24-4. They were able to battle back and get it as close as 10 in the 3rd quarter but Chanute proved to be too much. The Nado boys played a good 1st quarter but Chanute would pull away in the second and never looked back. 


Coffeyville is back at home Tuesday in a matchup against Fort Scott

Kansas Defeats West Virginia


It wasn't the highest scoring affair, but Kansas got the job done on Wednesday, defeating West Virginia 58-49.


The Jayhawks actually trailed 30-24 at the half, as the 14th-ranked Mountaineers played the defense they've become known for over the 2019-20 season. However, it was Kansas who bunkered down when it mattered, first catching up to West Virginia and then scoring the last nine points of the game to get the victory. Devon Dotson led the Jayhawks with 15 points, with 11 of those points coming in the second half.


Kansas improves to 21-3 on the season and 10-1 in the Big 12 Conference. A home meeting with Oklahoma comes next, with tip-off at 11:00 this Saturday. As always, you can catch all Kansas Jayhawks basketball games on 104.1 KGGF.

Coffeyville Completes Season Sweep of Indy


It was an emotional night, but Coffeyville would find the effort needed to win two more games Wednesday, with the women picking up the 72-53 victory over Independence and the men handling the Pirates 77-74.


The Coffeyville women didn't have it easy at first. The Red Ravens would fall behind by as much as 6 points during the first half, but an absolutely brilliant plan to get the ball inside fed Faith Simpson early. Coffeyville would swing for the lead with a few minutes left until the half, and would hold onto that lead until the end of the game. Despite not having the size advantage down low, Simpson and Markowska would control the boards all night long, winning the rebounding battle against Indy's leading scorer, Brittany Reeves. Simpson would finish with 26 points on the night, and was joined in double digits by McKenzie Murrel-Patton, who found open space for multiple three-point shots.


The men's game was about as close as a game could get. The two teams traded leads multiple times throughout the game, but it was Independence that would head into halftime with the lead. Things would stay close in the second half, but Coffeyville would find a lead here and there and keep themselves alive. Leading by three with 6 seconds left, a deep three from TJ Collins would rim out, and the ensuing rebound by Larry White allowed the Red Ravens  to pick up their 20th victory of the season. On a more serious note, a scary moment came with 3 minutes left in the contest, as Manny Crump collided hard with the tiled wall on the side of the ICC gym. He was carried off on a stretcher. We will have an update on his status when we get one.


With the two victories, the Coffeyville women improve to 23-5 on the season and 13-5 in Jayhawk Conference play. The men improve their status to 20-8 and 12-6 in the conference. A matchup with Neosho County awaits Coffeyville on Saturday, and then the regular season will wrap up next Wednesday against Butler.

Nado Split in Parsons


The Lady Nado pick up their third win in the last four games as they beats the Parsons Lady Viking 63-43.  Junior Guard Kylie Speer helped lead the way for the Nado hitting five threes including two in the second half they helped Coffeyville pull away late.  Junior Bre Flanders had a nice game off the bench defensively creating turnovers and transitioning into easy baskets on the other end.  Head Coach Anita Walker says they've got a tough matchup on Friday against Chanute.  That matchup against the Blue Comets is the last road game of the season for Coffeyville as they return home for their final three games of the season.  With the win the Lady Nado are now 5-11 on the season.


The Nado boys fall to the 15-1 Parsons Vikings 71-44. Head Coach Tyler Thompson says despite the loss he is proud of the way the team played.  Coffeyville boys fall to 3-13 on the season and face Chanute on Friday.

K-State Struggles in Loss to Ok State


It was a redemption game for Oklahoma State in Manhattan on Tuesday night as the Cowboys picked up a 64-59 win over the Wildcats. 


The Cowboys (12-12, 2-9) lost at K-State last season by 39 points and made up for it this season with a victory on the road in Manhattan. 


It was their first win over K-State (9-15, 2-9) since 2017 and now sit in a tie for 9th place with the Wildcats in the Big 12 standings. 


K-State's high scorer was Mike McGuirl with a season high 16 points while the Cowboys were led by Yor Anei with 15 points. 


K-State plays at TCU on Saturday with the tip off scheduled for 4:00 PM. 

Sedan Holds Off West Elk


It was a wild and close ball game on Tuesday night at Sedan high school between the Blue Devils and the visiting Patriots of West Elk with Sedan holding on for a 45-44 victory. 


West Elk (8-9) got off to a fast start and led 15-7 after the first quarter but Sedan was able to battle back to only trail 22-20 at halftime. 


It was back and forth with multiple lead changes in the second half with it coming down to the final possession of the game with the Patriots having the ball with under five seconds to go but they were unable to get a shot up before time expired. 


The Blue Devils (10-6) win was big because both of these teams are in the same 2-A Sub State with a possible rematch looming in the first round in a couple of weeks. 


Dameion Hatten led the way for Sedan with 18 points and 11 rebounds while Kaden Walker chipped in with 11 points. 


Devin Loudermilk led the Patriots with 17 points while Caleb Walker added 13 points and four rebounds. 


The next scheduled game of the week on KGGF will be on Tuesday, Feb. 21st with Caney Valley traveling to Erie. 

Coffeyville Sweeps Allen County Again

Both Coffeyville Red Ravens teams took care of business on Monday, with the men defeating Allen County 82-74 and the women doing the same by a score of 74-55.


The Coffeyville women would jump out to an incredible 15-2 lead in just a couple of minutes, a lead that would never be in any real danger of the course of the game. Although the lead would never grow to be any bigger than 24, the Red Ravens would experiment with different lineups and let players who have not got much playing time over the year get more time on the court. Faith Simpson picked up another double-double on the night, racking up 26 points and 18 rebounds. Alana Kramer would add 11 points as the only other scorer to reach double-digits for the Red Ravens.


The men's game was a much closer affair, although Coffeyville's men jumped out to a similarly large lead as the women had done before them. At one point leading by as much as 16, the Red Ravens watched as Allen would chip away slowly at the deficit. Leading by 6 at the half, Coffeyville would let the Red Devils get back to within 1 point, but pulled away and managed to never let Allen retake the lead. Meikkel Murray led all Red Ravens scorers with 26, with Tony Hutson (19), Manny Crump (12), and Kymani Dunham (11) joining him in double figures. 


Coffeyville's women improve to 22-5 on the season and 12-5 in the Jayhawk Conference, while the men move their record to 19-8 and 11-6 in the conference. A rivalry awaits the Red Ravens on Wednesday, as the two teams will travel to Independence for a meeting with the Pirates. The women will tip off at 6 p.m, with the Coffeyville feed on US 98.1 KUSN and the Independence feed on Star 98.9 KQQF.

Cherryvale Mows Down Fredonia


In a game that looked like it could be a close thriller turned into a blowout on Friday night as Cherryvale downed Fredonia 76-56.


Cherryvale and Fredonia stood toe-to-toe in the first half and looked like to two fighters connecting on haymakers before the Chargers delivered the knockout punch in the third quarter and cruised to the easy win down the stretch.


Zaine Lantz lead the Chargers with 17 points and yanked down 3 rebounds while Landon Bennett pitched in 15 points and Gavin Hooper added 13 points. Cooper Odell and Layne Mayeske lead the Yellowjacket attack with 13 points a piece and Grayson Coulter was the only other Fredonia player in double digits with 11.


Cherryvale will take to the road next Tuesday to square off against Caney Valley while Fredonia squares off with Leon-Bluestem in the final game of their 3-game home stand on Tuesday. The next Game of the Week on KGGF will feature Sedan hosting West Elk on Tuesday. Tip off is scheduled for 7:30pm.

Coffeyville Women Win, Men Fall to Cowley


Two styles of basketball were on display Wednesday, as the Coffeyville women defeated Cowley County 48-46 while the men lost 96-91.


The women's contest saw both teams struggle to get anything going offensively. Coffeyville struggled to get the inside shots they have become accustomed to, while the Cowley women struggled to take notice of the shot clock, racking up four violations in the first half alone. With the halftime score holding an 8-point lead for Cowley at 20-12, Coffeyville would need to dig deep in the second half. After another uneventful third quarter, the Red Ravens would turn on the after burners in the final 10 minutes. Trailing by 10 at the beginning, Coffeyville would nearly double their point total and take their first lead of the game with just minutes to spare. Cowley would get three seperate opportunites to tie the game up, but solid defense each time forced the Tigers to take bad shots, and Coffeyville finally earned their 20th victory this season in its third attempt. Faith Simpson led all scorers, picking up a double-double with 15 points and 14 rebounds. Ania Markowska also picked up another double-double for herself, adding 11 points and 13 rebounds.


The men's game was vastly different, with the same Cowley squad that had beaten Coffeyville by 16 earlier in the year looking to increase the tempo at every opportunity. However, unlike the first contest, Coffeyville would keep up, actually heading into the locker rooms with a three point lead. Cowley would catch fire in the second half, unfortunately, sinking a barrage of three-pointers that have helped them become the sixth-ranked team in the latest NJCAA Division I polls. Coffeyville would stick around, often times getting back to within 9 or 7 points, but the Tigers proved to be too hot to handle once again as Coffeyville fell by 5.


The women improve to 20-5 on the season and 10-5 in Jayhawk Conference play, while the men fall to 17-8 and 9-6 in the conference. The Red Ravens will take a long road trip this Saturday, heading to Concordia for a matchup with Cloud County.

Chiefs Win Super Bowl, Mahomes Named MVP


Fifty years of waiting with most Chiefs fans either not born yet or too young to remember their last Super Bowl, and a lot has changed in the NFL since Super Bowl 4. The Chiefs needed all four quarters yesterday to come away with the victory against the San Francisco 49ers. After starting the game leading 10-3 the Chiefs would find themselves trailing 20-10 in the fourth quarter. Kansas City who trailed by double digits in every game of the post season would go on to score 21 unanswered points to capture the 31-20 victory.


Patrick Mahomes was named MVP as he threw for 286 yards, 2 touchdowns and rushed for a touchdown as well. Damien Williams rushed for 104 yards on 17 carries with a touchdown and added a receiving touchdown on 4 catches for 29 yards. Tyreek Hill had 9 catches for 105 yards and Sammy Watkins had 5 catches for 98 yards.

CCC Loses Both to Butler


Coffeyville suffered a rare sweep at the hands of Butler Community College on Saturday afternoon, with the women taking a 61-59 loss and the men falling 71-64.


The women's game was close throughout, with both teams trading baskets throughout much of the game. Coffeyville would use their skillful inside game to great effect, with Faith Simpson racking up baskets throughout the game. However, the Red Ravens would struggle heavily at the free throw line, and it would be those struggles that decided the game. Coffeyville shot just 8-26 from the line, leaving behind several opportunites to break away from the Grizzlies. A missed Coffeyville shot with 11 seconds left would give Butler one more chance with 3 seconds remaining following a timeout. Camille Downs would take the inbounds pass all the way to the basket for a final shot at the buzzer to give the Red Ravens their second straight loss.


The men's game saw Coffeyville pick up the first basket, but that would be the only lead Coffeyville would hold throughout the entire game. Butler would ride a massive run to take a 16-point lead, and although Coffeyville would reduce that lead to just 7 before the half, the Red Ravens just couldn't seem to get any further. Several key scorers for Coffeyville struggled throughout, and numerous fouls called on both teams slowed the game down several times to a battle of free throws. At the end of the game, Butler would not miss enough free throws to give Coffeyville much of a chance to mount a last second comeback.


After Saturday, the Coffeyville women fall to 19-5 and 9-5 in Jayhawk Conference play. The men fall to 17-7 and are also 9-5 in the conference. Both teams will return to action next Wednesday, when the Red Ravens play host for a rematch with Cowley County.
