 Colt Hightower led the Pups with 14, while Ben Matthews and Nathan Kaminska added six point apiece.

Red Raven Softball Take Flight in Sweep


A new era of Red Raven softball that features new coaches, new players, and a new standard of success for the program reached a season high point this afternoon, sweeping the North Arkansas Pioneers.


The Ravens gain their first two wins of the season, and first two wins under new Coach Meredith Smith. 


In Game 1, the Ravens were led by pitcher Justina Raye who threw 5.1 innings with seven strikeouts in a 5-4 victory. Offensively, CCC was able to muster 10 hits and scored the game winning run in the top of the seventh inning.


Jade Jimboy had the game winning hit, as well as recorded five crucial outs in relief on the mound. Summer McAlister had three hits and two runs scored as well in the opener.


The bats stayed hot in Game 2, as the Ravens won 7-6. Grace Batdorf had four hits and three runs scored, with two runs batted in as well in a complete offensive performance. McAlister also added two more hits in Game 2, giving her five total hits on the day.


Joe Airington pitched for CCC and like her Game 1 teammate, went 5.1 impressive innings with five strikeouts.


The Ravens are in the win column, and playing their best ball of the young season. They look to continue momentum when they return home on Thursday for a doubleheader with Seminole State College (OK).

New Royals Reliever Delayed due to House Fall


A pitcher that is expected to be a vital piece to the 2023 Royals bullpen will be delayed a few days due to an unconventional injury.


Left-handed pitcher Aroldis Chapman was supposed to make his Royals debut over the weekend, but will be delayed due to facial injuries suffered in a fall at his home. Chapman slipped on Saturday night, and cracked a tooth as well as split open his lip, requiring stitches and a trip to the emergency room.


Due to the pain and lack of sleep, Royals manager Matt Quatraro pushed Chapman's debut for KC back a few days. Chapman played catch and took fielding practice earlier today, and is expected to throw a bullpen tomorrow and make his game debut later this week.


Chapman says despite the odd situation, he feels good and is ready to help the team.


The reliever is coming off a disappointing season with the Yankees last year, and signed a one year deal with the Royals in an attempt to revive his career at the age of 34.

Jayhawks Get Ready to Battle Texas Tech


Fresh off a narrow victory over the weekend that gave them sole possession of 1st place in the Big XII conference, the Kansas Jayhawks return to the court tomorrow night for a date with the Texas Tech Red Raiders.


Kansas enters the game 24-5 on the season, while Texas Tech has taken a step back from their Sweet 16 run last year, and sit just 16-13 on the year. The Jayhawks won the first matchup between the two teams 75-72.


The Red Raiders have picked up momentum as of late, having won four straight until a one-point loss to TCU over the weekend. Kevin Obanor is the leading scorer for Tech, averaging 15 points per game.


Dajuan Harris Jr is coming off of a 17 point performance versus West Virginia, in which he also had a career high six steals.


The top seed for the conference tournament is still up for grabs, and the Jayhawks will look to take advantage of controlling their destiny with just two games remaining.


Coverage of the Kansas Jayhawks and the Texas Tech Red Raiders begins at 6:30 p.m. CT tomorrow night on Greatest Hits 104.1 FM.

Royals Off to Hot Start in Spring Training


There have been many reasons to be excited so far with the Kansas City Royals, from young players performing well, to three wins in the first four organized games.


Kansas City dropped their first game of the spring earlier today to the Milwaukee Brewers, after winning each of their first three. However, with the spring focus on player performance and development, there have been plenty of players turning heads to this point.


The Royals, typically known for speed and defense, have been mashing baseballs so far this spring. The team has the second most home runs out of any team in the league, and is also 7th with an .880 team OPS.


The team has seen a nice balance of contributing players, from known pieces Hunter Dozier and Salvador Perez, to young stars MJ Melendez and Vinnie Pasquantino, and even some non-roster veterans, like Matt Duffy and Franmil Reyes.


The Royals still have nearly a month to gain reps and figure out the best 26 players for their Opening Day roster, when they battle the Minnesota Twins on March 30th.

Red Ravens Sweep Seward as Regional Playoffs Near


The Coffeyville Community College Red Ravens finished off their final regular season home game in style, with a convincing doubleheader sweep of Seward County.


The Lady Ravens won Game 1 76-66, and clinched the 5 seed for the KJCCC Regional Tournament in the process. Makenzie Davis had a career high 18 points to lead CCC in scoring.


The Lady Ravens will face either Garden City, Pratt, or NW Kansas Tech in the first round of the Regional Playoffs this weekend.


The men's team kept their hopes of a regular season conference title alive, beating the Saints in Game 2 94-68. The Ravens remain one game back of Dodge City for the top overall seed. Landon Glasper led the Ravens with 21 points on the afternoon.


The Red Ravens will conclude their 2022-2023 regular season on Wednesday evening against NW Kansas Tech. Tip is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. CT on KUSN 98.1 FM.

Lady Nado Beat Labette for First Time in 9 Years


Coffeyville splits the doubleheader against Labette County. The Lady Nado beat LCHS for the first time in nine years with a score of 44-33. The Nado boys would fall in a close one 41-39.


The Lady Nado would trail after the first quarter 13-9 but would use a 20-point second quarter to lead 27-21 at halftime. Aubriona Noblitt hit back-to-back threes that would give the Nado the lead and Coffeyville would not trail again. Savannah Viets and Chaunte Porter would hit free throws at the end of the game to prevent the Grizzlies from getting back into the game. The Lady Nado finish the season 6-14 and travel back to Fort Scott for the first round of Sub-State.


The Nado and Grizzlies would go back and forth in their matchup. LCHS would lead 10-7 after the first quarter but the Nado would head into halftime with a 20-19 lead. The Nado would control the third quarter as well leading by one 32-31. The Grizzlies would flip the script in the fourth taking jumping out to a lead but the Nado would close the gap and with 16 seconds left had a chance to win it. Jamarrion Logan had a look at a game-tying layup that he couldn't get to go and LCHS would grab the rebound and run out the clock. The Nado boys fall to 5-15 on the year and will travel to Atchinson for the first round of Sub-State.

Offensive Woes Lead to Both Losses for Nado


Second-half offensive struggles were the story for Field Kindley as they drop both to Fort Scott on the road. The Lady Nado fall 46-24 and the Nado boys 41-32.


The Lady Nado went into halftime trailing by 10, 25-15. Taiylor Caron had 11 first-half points. The Lady Nado struggled to find any rhythm in the second half offensively only scoring three points in the third quarter and just six in the fourth quarter.


The Nado boys kept the game close through the first three quarters trailing by one after the first, 10-9, two after the second, 22-20, and three after the third, 33-30. Coffeyville would go on an over seven-minute drought offensively in the fourth only managing two fourth-quarter points.


Both teams fall to 5-13 and Coffeyville will end the regular season on the road at Labette County.

Wildcats Pick Up Massive Win, Sweep Season Series with Baylor


Playing in front of the home faithful will certainly solve rough stretches, and following a five game road losing streak, the Kansas State Wildcats have responded in a big way with wins over Iowa State and beating the Baylor Bears 75-65 last night.


Kansas State improves to 21-7 with the win, while Baylor falls to 20-8 with the loss. KSU also sweeps the regular season series with the Bears, after beating Baylor in Waco earlier this season.


The Wildcats were sharp sharing the basketball, dishing out 20 assists as a team on a night where 3-point shots weren't falling. Keyontae Johnson had 25 points on 11-17 shooting to lead KSU.


Markquis Nowell was only sensational, posting yet another double double with 14 points and 10 assists. Nowell was also the closer at the charity stripe, going 10-10 at the free throw line to put the game away.


The win keeps the regular season conference championship hopes alive for the Wildcats, as they currently sit two games back of both Kansas and Texas. The Wildcats will travel to Stillwater to face off with the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday.

Jayhawks Grit Out Win Against TCU


The Kansas Jayhawks are playing their best basketball of the season, and are beginning to look like a Final Four team once again after a win against the TCU Horned Frogs.


Kansas holds off a late TCU comeback bid and holds on to win 63-58. The Jayhawks improve to 23-5 with the win while TCU falls to 18-10 with the loss.


On a night where Jalen Wilson only scored seven points, KU was able to play strong defense, win the rebound battle, and do the little things necessary to leave Fort Worth with a win.


Gradey Dick led the Jayhawks with 19 points, while Kevin McCullar Jr also had 15 on the evening. The KU defense held the Horned Frogs to just 30% shooting on the day.


The Jayhawks stand tied with the Texas Longhorns at the top of the conference standings, and will travel back to Lawrence for a showdown with West Virginia on Saturday afternoon.

Caney Splits With Fredonia In Tuesday Night Basketball Action


 Two exciting basketball games this evening between the Fredonia Yellowjackets and the Caney Valley Bullpups. Fredonia won the girls matchup 41-40, but Caney won the guys contest 63-48. 
 Colt Hightower led all scorers with 21 points, while Ben Matthews added 13 and Nathan Kaminska had 11, including two clutch 3-pointers in the 4th quarter. The Bullpups best quarter of the season was the 4th quarter of this game, when they pulled away from the Yellowjackets after being tied at the end of three. 
 Joel Dutton had 13 in the loss for Fredonia. 

 The Caney Lady Pups had a chance to win at the buzzer, but the shot came up short.
 It was senior night for Caney. Now the teams get ready for postseason play. 


Red Ravens Prepare for Cloud County Doubleheader


Following a bye earlier in the week, the Coffeyville Community College Red Ravens hit the road for a weekend doubleheader with the Cloud County Thunderbirds.


The Lady Ravens enter the day 11-9 in conference play, and trying to snap a four game losing skid. The Thunderbirds are 9-11 in conference play and looking to earn a huge win in their quest for a first round home game in the playoffs.


The Thunderbirds are one of the toughest teams to play on the road in the KJCCC, and coach Tony Turner says it will be a dogfight for his team today.


Cloud County won the first matchup 70-53, behind 25 points from Maimouna Sissoko. The Thunderbirds had four players score in double figures, and scored 15+ in each of the four quarters. The Lady Ravens struggled and only converted on six 3-pointers, and shot 28% for the game.


The men's team is back in 1st place following losses by Dodge City and Butler. Coach Jay Herkelman says that if the Ravens can stay where they are at in the standings, they will recieve a first round bye followed by a home game.


CCC ran away in the first matchup with Cloud, outscoring the TBirds by 11+ in each half. The Red Raven defense stepped up big, holding Cloud to 35% from the floor, and just 4-18 from beyond the arc, as well as forcing 19 turnovers.


Coverage of the Coffeyville Community College doubleheader with Cloud County begins at 1:45 p.m. CT on KUSN 98.1 FM. Tip of Game 1 is scheduled for 2, with the second game immediately following.

Nado Debut Siren in Honor of Former Coach


Field Kindley High School basketball drops both to Chanute in final home games of the season with the Lady Nado losing 49-44 and the Nado boy's falling 47-36.


Despite a career-high from Brooklyn White, scoring 14, the Lady Nado couldn't complete the fourth-quarter comeback attempt. Coffeyville struggled to get to the free throw line and struggled from the charity stripe as well. The Lady Nado didn't attempt a free throw until late in the third quarter and were only 1/6 from the free throw line in the game.


In between games, the Nado unveiled their new Nado siren. The siren is dedicated to late Nado Coach Mario Grant. His wife Jamie Grant and their youngest son sounded the siren for the first time.


The Nado boy's started the game strong and would hold a lead after the first quarter. Chanute would tie things up heading into the half and then take the third after the third. The Comets would pull away in the fourth. Just like the Lady Nado the boys struggled from the free throw line going 1/6.


Both teams fall to 5-13 on the season and have their longest road trip heading to Fort Scott on Tuesday.

Kansas Welcomes Baylor for Major Top 10 Matchup


A heavyweight showdown is in the cards in Lawrence, as the #5 Kansas Jayhawks welcome the #9 Baylor Bears to town in a matchup of two teams tied at the top of the Big XII conference.


The Jayhawks enter as 5.5 point favorites, and are looking for win number 22 on the season. KU is also 12-1 inside Allen Fieldhouse this season.


Baylor features a strong offense that averages 79 points per contest, led by the talented freshman Keyonte George. The Bears are 9-1 in their past 10 games, and the defense has only improved as the year has progressed.


Two teams enter tied atop the conference, but only one will remain following today. Coverage of the #9 Baylor Bears and the #5 Kansas Jayhawks begins at 1:30 p.m. CT on Greatest Hits 104.1 FM. Tip is scheduled for 3.

Kansas State Back at Home Against Iowa State


Following the toughest stretch of the season and five consecutive road losses, the Kansas State Wildcats get to play back in front of the home faithful this afternoon as they welcome Iowa State to Manhattan.


KSU opens as a three point favorite, as they attempt to win their 20th game of the season. Iowa State is currently one game ahead of Kansas State in the standings, which means this matchup has major conference standings implications.


Both teams are just 4-6 in their last 10 games, with Iowa State struggling offensively, and Kansas State taking a step back on the defensive end. Something will have to give in this matchup of top 20 teams.


Coverage of the #19 Iowa State Cyclones and the #12 Kansas State Wildcats begins at noon CT on the Mighty 690. Tip is scheduled for 1.

Central Upsets Sedan in HS Game of the Week


A back and forth first half resulted in a dominant second half by the Central Raiders, as they upset Sedan in our High School Game of the Week.


The Sedan Blue Devils had rarely been truly tested this season, entering last night with a 19-1 record on the season. The Blue Devils struggled mightily with turnovers, and seemed to have costly giveaways whenever they attempted to close the gap.


Junior Tristan Wade did convert on six free throws in the second quarter to give Sedan a three point halftime lead, but Central outscored the Blue Devils 34-17 in the second half.


The Raiders get positive momentum heading towards postseason play, as they improve to 13-10 on the season. Sedan falls to 19-2.

Erie Sweeps Caney In High School Basketball Action

 Two exciting games, and two victories for Erie in basketball action tonight. The Red Devil ladies defeated Caney 42-39, while the boys defeated the Bullpups 46-44 in Double Overtime.


 Colt Hightower (Caney) led both teams with 19 but fouled out toward the end of the fourth quarter. Both teams scored two points apiece in the first overtime, but Ethan Dillinger (Erie) took over in the second overtime with 13 to give his team the win.


 Nathan Kaminska added ten points for the Bullpups. 


 Caney will take on Fredonia Tuesday at home to close out the regular season.



Look at Royals Top Prospects Entering 2023


Now that star shortstop Bobby Witt Jr has officially graduated prospect status and entered the big leagues, let's take a look at the Top 10 Prospects for the Kansas City Royals entering 2023, and what you can expect from them this season.


1. Gavin Cross, outfielder

Cross is the 2022 first round pick of the Royals, and can play at all three outfield spots. He is most likely a corner outfielder that has good speed and power, and will climb to the upper levels of the minor leagues in 2023.


2. Tyler Gentry, outfielder

Gentry is incredibly athletic, and coming off a spectacular season where he mashed .326 with 21 home runs. He has also developed his vision, walking at a higher rate, and cutting down on swing and misses. He will be a player to watch closely in spring training, and should make his MLB debut in Kansas City this season.


3. Maikel Garcia, shortstop

Garcia signed with the Royals when he was just 16 years old back in 2016, and he has developed nicely in the six years since. He appeared in nine games for the Royals last year, and is a strong defender with good speed, that makes up for his lackluster power. Garcia is the cousin of former Royals SS Alcides Escobar, and should play a role in the Royals infield this season.


4. Nick Loftin, outfielder/utility

Loftin is a very interesting player, because he has a nice hitting approach and above average speed, but does not necessarily have a permanent position. Drafted as a shortstop, Loftin has played second base and the outfield as well in his career so far. Loftin should get playing time this spring, and could be another MLB debut watch for the Royals.


5. Cayden Wallace, third baseman

Wallace was the second round pick in last season's draft, and made a nice first impression in rookie ball with a 130 wRC+. He has impressive vision and power for his age, being just 21, and showed signs he could be sound enough to play third base long term. Wallace will be continuing his development at the High-A potentially Double-A levels this season.


6. Frank Mozzicato, left handed pitcher

Mozzicato, the seventh overall pick in 2021, was drafted because of what he can be, not necessarily what he is right now. His athletic build and pitching motion shows potential of a future big game ace, however his velocity and control haven't caught up quite yet. Still just 19 years old, Mozzicato will look to take a leap forward in High-A this season.


7. Beck Way, right handed pitcher

Way is one of the most intriguing arms in the Royals system with inticing pitches and an unconventional low arm angle. Acquired in the Andrew Benintendi trade last year, Way throws a fastball in the upper 90s with a punishing slider and changeup combo. The slider is MLB ready, and if the changeup can develop as well, Way will be an interesting player to watch in Double and Triple A this season.


8. Ben Kudrna, right handed pitcher

A second round pick in 2021, Kudrna is a local product from Shawnee Mission Kansas. A tad more polished than Mozzicato, Kudrna has a strong fastball and changeup combination. The next step for him will be getting more swings and misses, as his strikeout rate is below average. He will also be in High-A this season.


9. Carter Jensen, catcher

Jensen has the smallest sample size of anyone on this list, being just a 19 year old that spend most of his career in the organization complex. However, his numbers are eye catching, with a high walk rate and 148 wRC+. Jensen is a statistical monster, with his swing and results consistently ranking in the top 5 of Royals minor leaguers.


10. Angel Zerpa, left handed pitcher

Zerpa spent a good portion of last season with the big league club, and had mixed results much like many young arms on the Royals. His strikeout numbers look sensational and his walk rate isn't a concern, however an ERA approaching 7 and 28 home runs allowed put a dark cloud over his first big league summer. Zerpa has great stuff, with two fastballs, a slider, and a changeup, and will look to crack the Opening Day roster in KC.

Potential NCAA Tournament Opponents for KU and KSU


With the NCAA Tournament officially a month away, and both the Kansas Jayhawks and the Kansas State Wildcats looking like championship contenders, it's time to analyze some potential opponents both teams could see at the beginning of the tournament.


The Kansas Jayhawks are currently projected as the top overall seed in the East Region, according to ESPNs Joe Lunardi. The projected matchup is with the Rider Broncos, the currrent favorite to win the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Other potential 16 seeds that the Jayhawks could see are Morehead State, Howard, Alcorn State, and Farleigh Dickinson.


The Kansas State Wildcats are projected as a 4 seed in the Midwest Region. The Midwest Regional final will take place in Kansas City. The projected matchup is with the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles, the anticipated champions of the Sun Belt Conference. Additional projected 13 seeds that could be on the radar are Utah Valley, Yale, and Hofstra.


The 2023 NCAA Tournament Selection Show will be on Sunday March 12th following the conclusion of the conference tournaments. All KU and KSU tournament coverage can be heard on our family of stations.

Ravens Can't Hang on to Late Lead


The Coffeyville Community College Red Ravens suffered their first loss on the diamond this spring, falling 6-4 to Northeastern Oklahoma A&M.


It was a tight affair all afternoon, with NEO scoring the first three runs of the day, before CCC rallied and took the lead in the bottom of the eighth inning. However, the Ravens could not close the door, and surrendered three runs in the ninth, coming up short.


Kaden Arr is credited the win for the Norsemen, while Ryan Leiker suffers the loss for the Red Ravens. Coffeyville was led by sophomore designated hitter Ryan Ready, who had a pair of hits and two runs batted in on the afternoon.


The Red Ravens will return to the diamond tomorrow, as they travel to Edmond Oklahoma to play in the University of Central Oklahoma Festival.

Wildcats Continue to Slide in Loss to Oklahoma


The Kansas State Wildcats could not stop the bleeding, dropping their fifth consecutive road game in a 79-65 loss to the Oklahoma Sooners.


The KSU defense was not as sharp as normal in the game, allowing the Sooners to shoot 51% from the field, and score 43 points in the second half. The Wildcats drop to 19-7 with the loss.


Nae'Qwan Tomlin continued to build upon his NBA draft stock, posting 17 points and 10 rebounds in 32 minutes. Keyontae Johnson and Markquis Nowell each had 14 points for KSU as well.


Coach Jerome Tang commented after the game and said that although defensive execution has been an issue at times this season, this is the first instance of effort on the defensive end being an issue.


The Wildcats will have a chance to get back on track at home against #18 Iowa State on Saturday.

Jayhawks Roll Against Oklahoma State in Stillwater


The Kansas Jayhawks overcame a tough test against a scorching hot Oklahoma State team, beating the Cowboys 87-76 in Stillwater.


KU improves to 21-5 and is tied atop the Big XII conference. Oklahoma State falls to 16-10 with the loss.


The Jayhawks were able to pull away in the second half, shooting 66% from the field after the half led by a career high 26 from Gradey Dick. Kevin McCullar and K.J. Adams both had 15 points as well for KU.


For the Cowboys, a career high 27 from Kalib Boone wasn't enough. Former Jayhawk Bryce Thompson also contributed 17 points for Oklahoma State.


The Kansas Jayhawks will be back in action on Saturday against the #9 Baylor Bears in Lawrence.

Chargers Spoil Fredonia Senior Night


The final home game for a group of five Fredonia seniors was spoiled by their rivals in our High School Basketball Game of the Week.


Cherryvale was able to defeat the Yellow Jackets in a physical battle for the second time in as many weeks, this time with a 65-59 final.


Brock Robertson led the Chargers with 21 points in a night that Stetson Schafer was not at his peak form, and senior forward Danny Vigil was outstanding on the offensive glass. Sophomore Carson Ellis also was a spark providing 10 points for Cherryvale.


Ashton O'Neal and Jeremiah Couch both played well for Fredonia, and senior Joel Dutton converted on four 3-pointers on the night, but it was not enough for a Fredonia team that did not lead the entire game.


Our next high school game of the week will be Friday night in Sedan, as the Blue Devils host the Central Raiders at 7 p.m.

Nado Drop Both to Parsons on Senior Night


Field Kindley drops both to Parson on Senior Night with the Lady Nado falling 49-36 and the Nado boys losing in overtime 64-61.


The Lady Vikings had a strong first quarter to open up with a 21-10 after one. The Lady Nado defense would pick it up after the first but could only ever get it as close as seven points before Parsons would extend their lead back to double digits. It was a seven-point game 38-31 heading into the fourth but Coffeyville's offense stalled only scoring 5 points in the quarter. The Lady Nado were led by Taiylor Caron who had 14.


The Nado boys would lead by as much as double digits in the first half and hold a 28-22 halftime lead over the Vikings. A big second half by Jessie Jones, who had 16 of his 24 points in the second half, would send the game to overtime. The Nado, who had a 5-point lead with just over a minute left in the game, missed key free throws down the stretch. The Nado shot 11/21 from the free throw line with five of those misses coming in the fourth. Keshawn Hayes led the Nado with 16 points, including a big layup and foul to extend the lead back to five.


Both teams fall to 5-12 on the season. The Nado take on Chanute in their last home game on Friday.   

Kansas State Aiming to Snap Road Skid


The Kansas State Wildcats have lost four consecutive road games, and look to snap that streak tonight in Norman against the Oklahoma Sooners.


The Wildcats remained at #12 in the latest Top 25 polls, and sit at 19-6 on the season. Oklahoma has had a tough conference season, featuring a very strong defense but an inconsistent offense that struggles at teams to keep up.


Senior star Keyontae Johnson was held under 10 points for the first time all season in the loss to Texas Tech, and will need to show up in a big way to secure the 20th win of the season. The Sooners have lost four straight by double digits after an impressive 24 point win over top ranked Alabama.


Kansas State has a drastically better offense in this matchup, averaging nine more points per game, and also more assists and 3-point shots.


Coverage of the Kansas State Wildcats and the Oklahoma Sooners begins tonight at 7 p.m. on the Mighty 690. Tip off is scheduled for 8.

Jayhawks Draw Red Hot Oklahoma State


The Kansas Jayhawks face a difficult test tonight when they travel to Stillwater to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys.


The Jayhawks are 20-5 on the season, and have rebounded nicely from a disappointing loss to Iowa State by defeating Texas and Oklahoma. Oklahoma State is playing their best basketball of the season, climbing back into conference championship contention with seven wins in their last eight games.


KU does feature the stronger offensive firepower in this matchup, with Jalen Wilson, Gradey Dick, and Kevin McCullar Jr. just a few of the players on the roster that can create on that end of the floor.


The Cowboys do have an elite level defense, however, allowing only 63 points per game and less than 30% from behind the arc. Oklahoma State is also one of the premier shot blocking teams in the Big 12, blocking 5.3 shots per contest.


Coverage of the Kansas Jayhawks and the Oklahoma State Cowboys begins at 6:30 p.m. CT on Greatest Hits 104.1 FM. Tip off is scheduled for 8.

Red Raven Softball Looking to Soar Under New Staff


The Coffeyville Community College Red Raven softball program looks to look forward to a new era of competing under new head coach Meredith Smith.


CCC enters the 2023 season with a inexperienced roster that lacks collegiate reps, but does not lack the skills or talent needed to make an immediate impact. Assistant coach Mike Neal says that all players on this year's team have the opportunity to be an impact player for the Red Ravens.


The Red Ravens will be challenging themselves early, with their first six games of the season, as well as eight of the first ten, away from home.


A key for CCC this season will be attacking hitters on the mound and keeping opposing offenses off the scoreboard. Neal says the pitching approach varies by situation, but will emphasize throwing the proper strikes.


The Red Ravens will be in action for a doubleheader against Oklahoma Wesleyan JV beginning this afternoon at 2 p.m. CT.

Red Raven Guard Kennady Roach Prepares for Next Chapter


A valuable member of the Coffeyville Community College Red Ravens is looking forward to the next chapter of her basketball career.


Kennady Roach, a 5'10" sophomore from Vinita, Oklahoma, has been a critical wing for the Lady Ravens the past two seasons, with the combination of 3-point shooting and stout defense.


Earlier in the season, Roach announced she would be continuing her career with the Missouri Southern State Lions following the season. Roach says that the connections she has made at MSSU and the relationships she has built with the coaching staff made it an easy decision.


The sophomore guard takes pride in being a leader for the Lady Ravens, both on the court with her game, and off the court with her mentality and attitude. Roach says she has a fantastic relationship with Coach Tony Turner, and the two have always seemed to be on the same page.


Roach is averaging 10.4 points per game this season, including a career high 31 points in a win over Garden City earlier this year. Roach and the Lady Ravens still have plenty to play for in the home stretch of this season, however the future appears both bright and exciting for the sharpshooter guard.

Chiefs Rally to Beat Eagles in Super Bowl LVII


For the third time in franchise history and the second time in the past four seasons, the Kansas City Chiefs stand alone atop the football mountain.


The Chiefs rallied from a 10 point halftime deficit to defeat the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in Super Bowl LVII. Patrick Mahomes was named Super Bowl MVP following a 3 touchdown performance without a turnover, all while playing with a high ankle sprain.


The Kansas City offensive line played their best game of the season, preventing the NFL's best pass rush from generating pressure on Mahomes. The Eagles went into the game as the first team in NFL history to have four players with at least 10 sacks in a season.


The Chiefs were also able to run the ball extremely effectively, rushing for 158 total yards. Mahomes, Isaiah Pacheco, and Jerrick McKinnon all averaged at least five yards per carry on the night.


Travis Kelce, Pacheco, Kadarius Toney, and Skyy Moore were the touchdown scorers for Kansas City in the game, while Harrison Butker bounced back from a missed kick in the first quarter to kick the game winning field goal with just eight seconds remaining.


The Chiefs enter the new season as the early betting favorites to repeat as champions, and the Super Bowl parade is expected to be Wednesday afternoon in Kansas City.

Red Ravens Split Weekend Showdown with Independence


The Coffeyville Community College Red Ravens end the weekend battle for Montgomery County with a doubleheader split against the Independence Pirates.


The Lady Ravens were unable to snap their skid, losing their fourth consecutive game in a 61-53 loss. Cheyenee Banks and Kennady Roach each had 16 points for Coffeyville, but the Ravens were unable to capitalize on key free throws and possessions down the stretch. Valentina Ojeda led ICC with 17 points.


The men's team continued to cement themselves as a serious conference championship contender, winning the second game of the doubleheader 94-84. The Ravens scored 57 points in the first half, shooting 56% from the field and jumping out to a 20 point halftime advantage.


Nathan Johnson had 27 points for CCC, and Landon Glasper contributed 20. Amare Haynie stepped up in a big way as well with Camian Shell in foul trouble, posting 14 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists in the victory.


CCC is on their bye week and will not play on Wednesday this week. Their next game will be Saturday against Cloud County on the road. Coverage begins at 2 p.m. CT on KUSN 98.1 FM.

AL Central Division Offseason Moves


With both the Kansas City Royals and their division rivals reporting to spring training next week, it's time to look at the key players added and lost for each team in the AL Central in what figures to be a tight division race.


The Royals emphasized going after veteran arms, adding Jordan Lyles, Ryan Yarbrough, and resigning Zack Greinke to the rotation. The bullpen was also bolstered with lefty arms Josh Taylor and Aroldis Chapman. On the offensive side, Matt Beaty and Johan Camargo were invited to camp with hopes of making the roster.


The Chicago White Sox lost a key hitter in Jose Abreu, and will hope that former top draft pick Andrew Vaughn can simulate his production at first base. Chicago also signed Andrew Benintendi, a solid contact hitter and defender to bolster their outfield, as well as Mike Clevinger and Jake Diekman to add depth to the pitching staff.


The Cleveland Guardians, the reigning division champions, feature one of the strongest young pitching rotations in baseball with the likes of Tristan McKenzie, Shane Bieber, and Emmanuel Clase. The Guardians also added to their offense, bringing in talented first baseman Josh Bell, as well as power hitting catcher Mike Zunino.


The Detroit Tigers had a relatively quiet offseason, with their only major additions being pitcher Michael Lorenzen and outfielder Matt Vierling. However, the Tigers still have an intruiging young core of players that has as much talent as anyone in the division, and with another year of experience under their belt, will look to take a step towards competing. Outfielders Riley Greene and Akil Baddoo, first baseman Spencer Torkelson, and pitchers Tarik Skubal and Matt Manning are all key young players to watch in Detroit.


And the Minnesota Twins had the flashiest signing in the division this offseason, resigning star shortstop Carlos Correa to a six year contract. The Twins underwent a very underrated rehaul of their roster, adding utility bat Kyle Farmer, outfielders Joey Gallo and Michael A. Taylor, catcher Christian Vazquez, and star pitcher Pablo Lopez.


These five teams all report to camp next week, with spring training games beginning two weeks from today.
