Kosse and Kort

September 29th was a night to remember as the Bobcats rolled over the Lawrence- Nelson Raiders despite the Raider’s 18-14 lead the first half. Coach Streff said,” it was a tail of two halves we made a lot of mistakes the first half and the second half we played much cleaner and pulled it away from them.”

The final score was 40-24 keeping the winning seasons going for the Blue Hill Bobcats. With this win, the Bobcats remain undefeated this season.

BH Volleyball players line up with youth

Far from a surprise, the Lady Bobcat volleyball won their game vs. the Silver Lake Mustangs in a Tuesday night matchup. They came out strong with a first set finish of 25-8, the second set was 25-3, and they closed the first and final set with a score of 25-4.

It was youth night, a chance for young volleyball players to watch the game and get recognized. The youth volleyball players got to high-five the high school players after they were introduced. This gave the kids a chance to see what they will experience in high school.

Season Kicks off with New Traditions and a Bobcat Win

Kort and Kosse

The Blue Hill Spirit Squad got quite the workout as the Blue Hill football team defeated the Meridian Mustangs on Friday, August 24.

This year the Spirit Squad is starting a new tradition of doing kicks and push-ups for all points scored. They do push-ups for 30 points and then switch to kicks.

The final score was 58-8, giving the spirit squad quite the workout.

The bobcats are expected to keep the tradition alive and go far this year in the Nebraska state playoffs.

Another new addition this fall for the cheerleaders is stunting, which includes a basic lift while the girls are cheering.

With the changes to spirit squad and a talented group of football athletes, this fall will be a great season to follow.

by Katlyn Brooks

This week, the girls and boys basketball teams are participating in the Twin Valley Conference. Tonight, the boys basketball team will be playing Deshler. Tomorrow, the girls will play Lawrence-Nelson.

Boys basketball is participating in the 3rd round of TVC tonight, playing the #1 seed. “We’re looking forward to the challenge,” head coach, Joe Hubl says. He is proud to say that his team has won the last 7 out of 9 games. The boys have also won the past 2 out of 3 TVC tournaments.

The team has improved vastly since day one, both offensively and defensively. Their biggest improvement; however, is the ability to control and take care of the ball. Hubl stated that there are much less turnovers.

As for the rest of the season and next year’s team, Hubl says he’s very optimistic. “It’s been fun watching our young players since the beginning of the season.”

The girls basketball team plays Lawrence-Nelson at 6pm at the Kenesaw High School.

On Saturday, February 4th the girls and boys will both be competing for 3rd and 4th. If victorious, they will then compete for 1st and 2nd.

BlueHill Basketball: BlueHill@ Superior

By Johnny Bauman

Thursday, December 7th The Blue hill boys and girls basketball teams traveled to play the Superior Wildcats. The Girls game started of very fast paced, with the superior girls having a high advantage it was difficult for our girls to work around the taller girls, but as the game  progressed the girls made moves and closed a 12 point lead down to two points late in the forth quarter. The lead then slipped as time was ticking off  and the girls lost 46 to 38. The Boys game started off a bit slow with not so many points being scored and both teams showing some aggressive defense. The points broke loose throughout the second quarter and the home crowd was a real challenge for the boys to overcome, however the boys team tagged along and was only down by 3 most of the time. After half time the boys lost the surge and fell back throughout the third quarter. Finally the fourth quarter the boys made a huge leap and was down by one, but the momentum was short lived and the boys lost 45-35
