Wamego High School continues with its athletic dominance over the rest of the North Central Kansas League during the 2022-2023 school year.

The Lady Raiders, who went undefeated in the NCKL volleyball season, are still undefeated in basketball while the Raider boys, who also won the NCKL football championship this past fall, are in 2nd place in the NCKL boys standings with a 6-1 record and are still 3-0  in NCKL action.

The Wamego wrestlers, meanwhile, did drop an NCKL dual this past Thursday night against Concordia, but the Red Raider wrestlers rebounded on Saturday and won the team championship in the Rossville Invitational.
