Lodge, home at Pretty Prairie South Barber, home at Norwich Norwich, home Sedan at Argonia Oct. 16 at Udall by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” Ten things to know about the upcoming football season in Sumner Countyâ€¦1. The season scheduleâ€¦ It starts tomorrow. The preseason hype is over. And there are questions galore.Conway Springs will be taking to the field at Bluestem with one of its youngest lineups in years. By the same token Argonia-Attica host Sedan hoping to replicate last yearâ€™s magical season. Belle Plaine hopes to get off the snide at Medicine Lodge. Oxford is at South Haven – two teams with plenty of questions. Caldwell is traveling to Central-Burden with a few worries of its own.Here is the full schedule for 2015â€¦ at Central-Burden Caldwell at Argonia Douglass, home Oct. 2 at Independent at South Barber Udall at South Haven At CV-Dexter at Central OXFORD at South Haven Oct. 30 Flinthills at W. Trinity at Douglass Garden Plain, home at South Haven Sept. 25 at C. Springs 2. Letâ€™s start with Conway Springs â€¦Throughout the 21st Century, Sumner County football fans have seen more than their fair share of great football.We all know about Wellingtonâ€™s state championship runs in the early 2000s. There was South Haven that had a state championship run in 2008 and annually played deep into the eight-man playoffs when David Hughes was at the helm. Last season, it was Argonia-Attica making headlines by rolling to the state championship game in only its second year in existence!But, if there is one program that defines football excellence and stability in Sumner County, it would be Conway Springs. The Cardinals have seven of those state championship trophies placed majestically in the commons at its high school starting with the first one in 1998.But even a well established program like Conway Springs, can become vulnerable, and there are a few questions going into the 2015 season.3. Third in league?â€¦Every preseason, in Class 3A it is usually the same teams hyped at the top: Conway Springs, Silver Lake, Scott City, Rossville, Beloitâ€¦But in 2015, the Cardinals are not getting as much preseason respect as in years past. Both the Wichita Eagle and K-Preps polls have then listed as â€œothersâ€ in the Class 3A poll. And then the Eagle pulled the double whammy by picking Conway Springs to finish third in the Central Plains League – behind two other â€œCâ€ lettered teams â€” Cheney and Chaparral – not to mention Garden Plain getting a healthy fourth place not.4. The season aheadâ€¦Last season, Conway Springs was 8-0 and humming right along when it was stunned by Chaparral in the final regular season game 27-19. The Cards then were eliminated by Wichita Collegiate in the first round of the playoffs, making for a quicker than expected exit.Â In order for Conway Springs to return to former glory there are some big holes to fill especially on offense.The roster is smaller with 45 players out and just eight seniors and seven juniors.At the top of the list is Conway Springs lack of experience at its prized position – running back.Conway Springs lost its two top two running backs, Luke Fisher and Travis Wood. Fisher was a workhorse getting 1,596 yards while Travis Wood had 906 yards. It seems like forever since there was no Wood on the roster. But in 2005 Conway Springs has no Wood.5. A team of youthâ€¦Conway Springs will be running Colton Trehune as quarterback with Ben Pauly and Jacob Winter sharing duties at running back. Pauly has experience in the backfield getting 345 rushing yards in 2014.Conway Springs coach Matt Bieler hinted that there would be multiple backs in the backfield this season and no real featured back.Josh Dugan, a quarterback last season, is being moved to tight end. Gunnar Denney and Lucas Shaffer are also slated to be the wide receivers.The offensive line looks hungry and has experience. Wes Hullinger; the son of Gregg Hullinger, a Wellington High School graduate; will anchor the line as a 270 pound senior. Other potential starters include Skyler Kunz, Wyatt Botkin, Matthew Lange and Blake Biles.6. Meanwhile in Belle Plaineâ€¦Belle Plaine is currently strapped with a 19-game losing streak and is hoping that streak will end soon.The Dragons are traveling to Medicine Lodge this Friday to open the season and this is as good as chance as any to get in the victory column.Jason Jinkens, in his third year as Belle Plaine head coach, said the numbers are up this season and the practices have been more competitive. Cheyenne McClennan, a 6-0, 170 pound, senior and Trevor Lawless, a 5-2, 125, sr. will be the leading running backs.2015 Argonia-Attica team has 25 players out this season.7. State championship bound?â€¦Weâ€™ve said this before but it is worth repeating. The experiment of combining Argonia and Atticaâ€™s football program has been a huge success.The Titans were under the radar all last season. But that luxury is over. A&A is slated at No. 2 in the eight-man division II ranks one spot below Victoria in both K-Preps and the Wichita Eagle, which incidentally beat the Titans in the state championship game in November.8. A&A and its intimidating lineupâ€¦Co-coaches Lance Vandeveer and Luke Greenwood have a solid foundation returning from last seasonâ€™s 12-1 team. At the top of the list is Alec McDaniel, a 5-9 155 pound speed demon, who passed for 1,707 yards and 33 touchdowns, not to mention rushing for 1,546 yards and 35 touchdowns.But A&A has some holes to fill. The Titans have four returning offensive players and three defensive starters returning. Those starters include: Devon Newberry as running back; Troy Francis as offensive line, Aaron Harsh as tight end, Kolten Koerner as tight end, Seth Hemberger as running back and Brady Ricke as running back.A&A has 11 seniors with three juniors, three sophomore and eight freshmen.â€œEach team is different every year,â€ said Luke Greenwood, co-head coach at A&A. â€œThis team will have to have some leaders step up. We have high hopes and high expectations for this season.â€9. Caldwell reworkingâ€¦The Bluejays have three returning starters on both offense and defense and they are all two-way starters. Colten Ward is a quarterback/running back and defensive back. Kyle Bruey is running back and tight end and linebacker. Ross Kuehny is an offensive lineman and defensive end/linebacker.Overall, the Bluejays have 16 players out and only two 200 pounders.â€œThis season is going to be different for our team due to graduation,â€ said Sean Blosser, fifth year head coach. â€œWe are excited to watch the players that provided us with depth in the past step up and play a larger role on the team.â€10. Oxford and South Havenâ€¦Both Sumner County teams square off this Friday with a lot of uncertainty.Oxford is slated to finish seventh in the SCBL.â€œWe will be young this year, but due to injuries several players got quality time last year,â€ said Sean Burkes, seventh year head coach.In South Haven, Cody Wolf takes over the helm as the third head coach in three seasons.The team is predicted to finish ninth after sporting a 2-7 record in 2014.Follow us on Twitter.

12 Apr 2017 Cheshire’s Ruth Whitehead receives Micklem Award Cheshire’s Ruth Whitehead, who has played a prominent role in unifying men’s and women’s golf, has been recognised for her outstanding contribution to the amateur game with England Golf’s Gerald Micklem Award. Ruth is the first woman to receive the award, which was presented today by England Golf’s outgoing President, Marian Rae, at the organisation’s annual meeting. Ruth was a key figure in national women’s golf for many years and was closely involved with the merger of the English Golf Union and the English Women’s Golf Association (EWGA) which created England Golf. She has been a member at Delamere Forest Golf Club for almost 40 years, becoming its first woman director and is now is its first female chairman. Alongside Ruth’s club and national roles she has been a staunch supporter of her county, both as a player and an official, most recently as President in 2015/16. Ruth’s motivation has always been her pleasure in the game and she said of her award: “I’m overwhelmed, this is absolutely unbelievable. I have had such fun and enjoyment from golf, I’ve worked with wonderful people and made lovely friends. You don’t think of getting honours, you do it because you love the game.” Ruth started golf as a 14-year-old at Sandbach, Cheshire, and, during a membership which spanned 45 years, she was ladies’ captain in the club’s golden jubilee celebrations. She was also a member at a third Cheshire club, Sandiway, for more than 35 years and has been ladies’ captain at Royal St David’s, Harlech. Ruth’s active involvement with county, regional and national golf flourished when she retired as deputy head teacher of a large, successful comprehensive school in Nantwich. After joining the executive of the former English Ladies’ Golf Association she helped to modernise the organisation and transform it into EWGA. Ruth was the first chairman of the new operational board, looking after the association’s golfing activities. She was always hands-on, as busy on the course as in the committee room. Ruth ran many championships – with a particular soft spot for the English U13 and U15 girls – and officiated as an R&A-qualified referee. As a player, Ruth held a single figure handicap for over 40 years and still plays off 11. She was a Cheshire county player and was county senior champion in 1999. She has been county captain, senior captain and the captain of the Northern vets. Image © Leaderboard Photography

In that time span, they’ve only suffered one loss. They continued that success as they swept second place Clairton 3-0-1. “All the hard work over the summer is showing on the field,” said Bo Turner, the Hill District’s ACMFL representative. “The coaches are also working hard and the kids are taking direction from them. This has added to our progress as a football program.” This is a game-by-game breakdown of what happened in this series:
