The 2022-2023 high school sports season in the state of Kansas is now complete and the North Central Kansas League had three teams place in the top four in its respective sport and state classification.
Wamego High School laid claim to two of those top four finishes as the Lady Raider softball team won the Class 4A state championship and the Red Raider boys track team finished in 3rd place at the Class 4A state track meet. Chapman’s Lady Irish track team finished in 4th place at the state track meet.
Here is a look at what each NCKL school did in their respective teams during the final week :
