Neal and Jones were crucial in helping the Bombers garner a national ranking this past season and reach the state finals for the third time in four years.


Wichita State golfer Hunter Sparks, a Putnam City graduate, was recently named the Missouri Valley Conference Golfer of the Year.

Last week, Sparks led the Shockers to a 32-stroke victory at the conference tournament, finishing second individually.

With a season stroke average of 71.7, Sparks was named to the all-conference team for a fourth straight year.

Sparks finished in the top 25 in all 10 tournaments this year, with four top-five finishes.


Former Putnam City North standout Jarrod Jameson, now a junior at Tennessee Wesleyan, was named the All-Appalachian Athletic Conference Pitcher of the year last week.

After playing his first two seasons at Pratt (Kan.) Community College, Jameson joined Tennessee Wesleyan, which was coming off the 2012 NAIA national championship. The team is currently competing in the postseason after winning the conference's regular-season championship with a 20-3 record.

Jameson went 12-0 with a 2.61 earned-run average. He struck out 57 patters and walked 19 in 72 1/3 innings.


Powered by a young roster, the Casady girls golf team recently won the Southwest Preparatory Conference Tournament at Woodforest Golf Club near Houston.

Freshman Pauline Nguyen shot a two-round total of 162, with junior Nicole Nguyen at 163 and sophomore Elizabeth Freeman at 170.

This was the team's first conference title since 2002.
