'Hounds open season with victory in Iowa (09/01/15)
FORT DODGE, Iowa --For a guy who wasn't even on the roster submitted to the Tribune Thursday evening, Mike Glass did a heck of a job here Saturday as Fort Scott Community College's football team opened its season with a 21-10 victory over Iowa Central...
Tigers 3rd at Parsons in tennis opener (09/01/15)
PARSONS -- Fort Scott High School's tennis team tied for third place here Thursday in their season-opening tournament. The Tigers scored 7 points to tie with Pittsburg. Independence was the winner with 12 points followed by Parsons with 10. "It was about what I expected for the season opening match," Fort Scott head coach Lynn Barr said. ...
Competitive scrimmage helps Tigers (08/29/15)
There was a little more pomp and circumstance than usual prior to Friday night's Red and White Football Scrimmage at Frary Field, with the dedication of the high-school projects -- the new artificial surface at the stadium among them. But once things got going, head coach Bob Campbell and his staff were pleased to see their players put on a very competitive scrimmage...
Volleyball prepares for Tuesday opener (08/29/15)
Fort Scott High School head volleyball coach Carol Bingesser mixed things up at the team's Red and White Scrimmage in the FSHS gymnasium Tuesday afternoon. She decided to split up her varsity and junior varsity teams and put some of each group on each side of the net. Bingesser coached the Red team while assistant Jenna Campbell coached the White squad...
Eagle golf hosts 'rookie' tourney (08/29/15)
The golf season got underway for Uniontown's program Thursday when it hosted a junior-varsity level "rookie" tournament at Woodland Hills Golf Course in Fort Scott. The start of the tournament was delayed an hour due to a concern of possible rain but went off without a hitch...
'Hound gridders open season in Iowa (08/28/15)
Fort Scott Community College football's expectations this season aren't that high if one wants to believe the prediction for a seventh- place finish in the Jayhawk Conference coaches' pre-season poll. But with the nation's leading rusher returning in sophomore Devin Taylor (6' 1", 195, Soph., Nicholasville, Ky.), who gained 1,524 yards on the ground and scored 12 touchdowns last season, and defense full of NCAA Division I prospects, surpassing last season's 4-7 record and fifth-place finish is a reasonable goal.. ...
Tiger soccer short on experience (08/28/15)
A familiar face will be back on the sideline for Fort Scott High School's soccer team this season. But he'll need a while to get to know his team -- and the players might need some time to get to know each other. Following Thursday night's Red and White Scrimmage at Ellis Park, David Gray, who was head coach of the Tigers from 2006-09 and assisted his son, Kevin, from 2010 to 2012, takes over the team on short notice after Andrew Cline did not come back...

JV tennis opens Tigers' sports year (08/26/15)
The junior varsity tennis team became the first Fort Scott High School athletic team to take the field this academic year when it hosted a quadrangular Monday. No team scores were kept.

Nicole Konopelko of Pittsburg won the final match, 6-0...
2's give the 1's good workout at scrimmage (08/25/15)
Possibly the best thing about Fort Scott High School's scrimmage at the practice field Saturday morning wasn't the way the No. 1 offense and defense played but how the No. 2's on both sides were able to give the No. 1's a challenge. "We tell our young guys, 'If you can compete against our No. ...
FSCC volleyball completes 4-0 weekend at home (08/25/15)
Fort Scott Community College volleyball, ranked No. 20 in NJCAA Division II, took care of both of its opponents in straight sets on the second day of the Fort Scott Invitational at Arnold Arena Saturday.

Three are seniors, including three-time State Tournament qualifier Jennifer Harrison, Emmah Reeves and Char Hutchison. The fourth is junior Alex King...
Greyhounds No. 20 in pre-season Div. II poll (08/21/15)
Fort Scott Community College's volleyball team is ranked No. 20 in the National Junior College Athletic Association pre-season Division II volleyball poll, released Wednesday. The Greyhounds, 31-9 last season as they finished as Region VI-District N runner-up to Kansas City, begin their season today as they host their own invitational at Arnold Arena. ...
Patching it together (08/21/15)
FSCC volleyball hosts tourney to begin season (08/19/15)
Fort Scott Community College head volleyball coach Lindsay Hill has seven sophomores -- six of whom played here last season -- including the player who was last season's Jayhawk Conference-Eastern Division Player of the Year, returning. She also has eight freshmen, including a player she things could be this year's Freshman of the Year, giving her team a balance of youth and experience...
63 report to first day of football practice (08/18/15)
Sixty-three players, including about 23 freshmen, reported for the first day of practice Monday morning at Fort Scott High School.
