Chiefs' Tyreek Hill breakout star, trying to outrun past (semoball.com ~ Professional Sports ~ 12/01/16)
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Tyreek Hill has proven he can outrun just about anybody in the NFL. If only he could outrun his past, too. The rookie wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs has been a breakout star this season, evidenced by his performance Sunday night in Denver. Hill had nine catches for 52 yards and the tying touchdown, ran right around the Broncos' Von Miller for another score and even returned a free kick for an early TD that helped Kansas City to a crucial overtime victory...
Perryville boys basketball puts up points in opener to down Oak Ridge in Woodland Invitational (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/29/16)
MARBLE HILL, Mo. -- If someone had told Perryville boys basketball coach Justin Dreyer before Monday's season opener that his new-look team would score 85 points, the fifth-year headman probably wouldn't have believed them. After the game, the numbers on the scoreboard were undeniable, though, as No. 4 Perryville beat No. 5 Oak Ridge 85-49 in the quarterfinals of the Woodland Invitational Tournament on Monday night at Woodland High School...

A handful of young area soccer players have maximized their development in those two areas in 3-on-3 competition and are now reaping the rewards with success on the field...

For female student-athletes at five of the smallest schools in the area, the winter was a dead period. That number is now set to shrink by one.

With solid returning experience, Notre Dame girls basketball hopes to re-establish status as winner (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/21/16)
The Notre Dame girls basketball team hopes that some necessary struggles the past two years will pay off in 2016-17 with a squad that's been through the ringer and has built a special bond within the locker room and with the sport. After fielding an extremely young squad two years ago, long-time Notre Dame coach Renee Peters, now rounding out a decade helming the team, believes the growing pains are beginning to pay dividends. ...
Zalma boys basketball hopes to ride recent trajectory higher (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/21/16)
The Bulldogs have come a long way since Bryant Fernetti took the reins at Zalma before the 2013-14 season. Fernetti and his squad endured a 1-20 campaign that first year, but there was light at the end of that dark season. The win total jumped to 11 in Year 2, and the Bulldogs posted a winning mark at 14-12 last year...

St. Vincent boys basketball hopes past lumps pay off in 2016-17 (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/21/16)
Through the final six games of last season, St. Vincent boys basketball coach Bruce Valleroy inserted two sophomores from the junior varsity ranks into his starting lineup, and his team reaped the benefits. The Indians were 4-2 during that span, wrapping up their season with an 11-14 mark, and they return two full-time starters in 2016-17...
Daniel leads Scott County Central girls basketball in drop down to Class 1 (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/21/16)
Scott County Central girls basketball has no seniors and two juniors on its roster, but that doesn't mean the Bravettes don't have plenty of experience in the starting lineup. The Bravettes return three starters from last year's district-winning team. Now that SCC has dropped down from Class 2 to Class 1 and is the only team in its district, the team is ensured a fourth title in five years...
Scott County Central boys basketball hopes four returning starters can overcome loss of go-to player (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/21/16)
While Scott County Central boys basketball lost a two-time all-state performer in Jeffery Porter, coach Matt Cline doesn't believe experience will be an issue this season. After all, the Braves return four starters. While SCC didn't repeat as Class 2 state champions last year, falling in the district championship and ending an eight-year run of state quarterfinal experiences, those players gained valuable experience. Before last season, none of them had played varsity basketball, Cline said...
Change is the word in 2016-17 for Class 3 runner-up Saxony Lutheran girls basketball (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/21/16)
If there's a coach in the state facing the empty-nest syndrome this year, nobody has more right to it than Saxony Lutheran girls basketball coach Sam Sides. When last seen, Sides was coaching a cast of eight seniors in the school's first Class 3 state championship game...

Scott City girls basketball coach Travis Schiwitz doesn't expect an instant turnaround, but he believes his team is incrementally getting better.

Cohesion is one ingredient Scott City boys basketball coach Mark Dannenmueller says his team possesses as he enters his seventh year at the helm, and he hopes it will be accompanied by grit.

The Woodland girls basketball team concluded its season last year in the second round of the Class 3 District 2 tournament, but coach Robert Stein was pleased with the trajectory of his program.

Graduated star and new coach leave fresh look for Woodland boys basketball (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/21/16)
After consecutive seasons of 20 wins or more under Logan Nutt, Woodland boys basketball will have a new coach at the helm. He'll have to replace last year's leader in points, rebounds and assists. Zach Beel, an All-Missourian pick the last two seasons, is gone from last year's 20-7 team. While two full-time starters return, Beel's absence leaves a void. He averaged a double-double last season with 23 points and 12 rebounds plus four assists per game...
Smaller Perryville boys basketball team tries to fill voids (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/21/16)
Graduation has taken its toll on Perryville's twins, starters and height.

In its wake remains only two players with any varsity experience in seniors Josh Robinson and Aaron Mueller...
Perryville girls basketball enters fresh era with new faces, new coach (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/21/16)
If there is one certainty for the Perryville girls basketball team in 2016-17, it's that there will be a whole lot of new. Gone are a seven-player senior class, four starters and a coach of nearly two decades. With Vicki Lohmann stepping down after 18 years leading the Pirates, DJ Goodson takes over to usher in a new era that will feature some youth and a lot of new responsibilities for players who previously played bit parts...

Even after back-to-back three-win seasons, the Oak Ridge boys basketball team remains optimistic heading into the 2016-17 season. Excited, even. That's thanks to a returning core, better depth and an impactful new face. "I'm pretty excited," coach Adam Stoneking said. "It may not be the best team we've ever had but we're really competitive at every position, so everyone will be fighting for minutes. That's nice to be around."...
Despite continued youth, Oran girls basketball hopes to springboard off success, lessons (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/21/16)
A year ago, the Oran girls basketball team used an influx of young talent to vault to a 23-4 record -- a school record for victories and seven wins better than the year before -- but that reliance on youth occasionally failed the Eagles against top-tier opponents, including in a sectional loss to eventual Class 1 state runner-up Naylor...
Oran boys basketball hopes experience can help four returning starters take next step (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/21/16)
The Oran boys basketball team is going to look a lot like it did last year, so the question is how much it has learned from a season of some close calls. The Eagles return four starters from a squad that went 15-14 and lost five games by 3 points or less before falling to Advance in the district championship...
Leopold boys basketball hopes tough lessons last year pay off this time around (semoball.com ~ High School Sports ~ 11/21/16)
The Wildcats were short in the numbers department last season, feeling the squeeze in both bodies and wins in coach Corey Brownsberger's second season, which ended with eight players in the program and two wins. A casualty was the junior varsity team, which suspended play when a program with just 10 players to start the season was further depleted when freshman point Grant Koenig broke a leg in a non-basketball related accident just after the Southeast Missourian Christmas Tournament...
