Maisy Williams of Black Hills had a tooth knocked out at last year’s state basketball tournament and her jaw wired shut in another basketball injury in the fall. But after leaping 17-8 1/2 on Saturday in the long jump, she was a smiling 2A state champion.
The Tornados, just like last year, can’t beat the Mustangs and get knocked into the consolation bracket of the 3A state softball tournament. After losing to Redmond, 3-0, they rebound to beat Stadium, 4-0.
W.F. West High School senior Kendra Bottenberg celebrated her 18th birthday on Friday with a winning lottery ticket and a personal-best javelin throw that made her the 2A state champion. “It’s kind of like the coolest day ever,” Bottenberg said. Also, W.F. West’s Colby White captures 2A high jump state title.
