The Circle Is Unbroken; The Nado's Season Comes To An End

Red Ravens cruise against Ottawa JV


The Coffeyville Community College Red Ravens women's basketball team came soaring out of the gates to start to the 2022-2023 season, winning 93-43 over the Ottawa JV Braves.


A team that struggled to shoot the basketball a season ago (39% from the field, 26% from 3PT), the Ravens shot 52% from the field in the game, as well as hitting 12 three point shots. This step forward was a great sign, according to 4th year head coach Tony Turner.


The Ravens were led by Jordan Snyder, scoring 18 points on 8-9 shooting. Other leading scorers were Bailey Layman with 15, Makenzie Davis with 13, and Jordynn Conner with 9. All 15 members of the CCC roster layed at least nine minutes in the game.

Preview: Bullpups battle Council Grove in playoffs


The Caney Valley Bullpups continue their quest for a 2A state football championship, with a game Thursday night against Council Grove. Both teams enter this matchup with a 7-2 record on the season.


Caney enters fresh off of a 44-16 win over the Eureka Tornados in the opening round of the postseason, while Council Grove had no problems with Fredonia, winning 48-8 over the Yellow Jackets.


The Bullpups, all season long, have showcased a ground and pound style of offense, designed by coach Criss Davis, and primarly executed by the two-headed monster of Jackson Griffin and Aston King. The two star running backs have combined for 300+ rushing yards in six different games this season, including last week against Eureka.


On the defensive side of the ball, Ben Matthews has become a massive presence off the edge for Caney, rushing the quarterback and sealing off the edge, not allowing running backs and receivers to get to the sideline. Another key piece of the Bullpups defense is Drake Stapleton, a senior who plays a large role in making sure each member of the defense is in the correct spot.


The Council Grove Braves offer talented players at both quarterback and running back, according to Davis. The defense is also stout, only giving up more than 16 points twice this season.


Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Thursday night, with pregame at 6:15. You can catch the Bullpups this week with the voice of Caney, Chris Freund, on the mighty 690 KGGF AM.


Coffeyville CC MBB starts tonight


There always seems to be great excitement surrounding the start of Coffeyville CC Red Raven basketball season, and the 2022-2023 edition brings no exception.


The Red Ravens will open tonight at 7:30 p.m. facing off with Southwestern JV. CCC is coming off a season where they finished 18-13, and 14-9 in conference play.


Although the roster is very inexperienced with 12 freshman, there is outstanding size, speed, and athleticism across the floor, particularly at the wings. Six players open the season listed at 6'6" or taller.


It is impossible to talk about Coffeyville basketball without mentioning head coach Jay Herkelman. Now heading into his 28th season at the helm of the Red Ravens, Herkelman is the winningest coach in NJCAA history, as well as a 2018 NJCAA hall of fame inductee.


A challenge presenting CCC this season is discovering who will emerge to help fill the void left by star guard Love Bettis, who transferred to North Carolina A&T. Bettis averaged 18.1 points per game last season, and Herkelman will experiment with different rotations and looks from his team to see who can become the top scoring option.

Coffeyville CC WBB tips off


The official start of the 2022-2023 basketball season is finally upon us, and the Coffeyville CC Red Ravens women's team have sky high expectations heading into tonight's season opener with Ottawa JV.


The Red Ravens are led by Tony Turner, who enters his fourth season at the helm of the program. The team has experienced consistent success in Coach Turner's regime, having a record of 19-11 a season ago, including 10-6 at home.


This season presents new challenges, however, with only two returning players averaging more than 3 points per game from last season (#12 Kennady Roach, #42 Cheyenne Banks). There is good size and speed on this roster, with eight players listed at least 5'9".


CCC will look to improve their shooting in the new season, after struggling to a 39% clip the previous campaign. A new opportunity to build a new legacy starts at 5:30 tonight in the season opener.
