By GRANT MEECH Eyewitness Sports Hoxie football is on shaky ground. The Indians finished 1-8 in 2008 and have only 17 kids out for practice. Not the friendliest environment for a new head coach, but this is the team Lance Baar inherits. Linebacker Dylan Salmans should lead the Indians on defense, but Hoxie will have to work as a team to have a lot of success with not much size. "Obviously we are low on numbers, and we are pretty small," Baar said. "We are not going to have a lot of size.

The Hoxie boys came into the Class 1A, Division I Sub-State tournament at Trego Community, the only team with a winning record and heavy favorites. But this tournament had already been littered with upsets before the Indians took to the court on Friday night. And Hoxie knew a little bit about upsets. The Rawlins County Buffaloes has just four wins during the regular season, and upset Trego in the sub-state opening round. But one of those regular season wins came back in December over Hoxie.

One last win in the bag, Ashland's players looked so natural: accepting their medals, raising the trophy and posing for photos with the over-sized bracket - all the typical stuff state champions do. Not surprising. They've been rehearsing that role all season. Ashland finished off a 26-0 season, surging past Udall 67-58 , Saturday, to claim the 1A Division I title at Emporia's White Auditorium.  All the while, those state championship attributes were on full display. “These kids have taken us on one heck of a ride,” said Ashland coach Kit Walker.

The girls' state championship between No. 1 Olpe and No. 2 Hoxie was highly anticipated. Both were undefeated coming into the title game but only one could leave that way. Although the Lady Eagles came in as the No. 1 team in the state they found themselves playing catch up. They never overcame an early deficit however and Hoxie earns back-to-back state crowns 68-63. It seemed like Olpe bit off more than they could chew early. They just couldn't make their shots. Hoxie on the other hand had three threes in the first quarter alone.

When you live out here west of Salina, your perspective on what is big sports news is quite a bit different. And usually it is much smaller, at least when it comes to schools size. But the heart and the work ethic of these kids is just is big, so I pay tribute to them in my favorite coverage of the 2012-2013 season.

It's probably not customary for teams to dance the 'Cupid Shuffle' before a big match. But based on the way the Olpe Eagles played Saturday in Hays at the Class 1A Division I championship, more teams may start considering it. The Eagles blew past Hoxie in straight sets 25-11 and 25-17 in straight sets to advance to the title match. Waiting for them on the other side was St. John, the two time defending state champions. The Tigers needed three sets to get past Centrailia 25-15, 20-25, 25-11.
