Six games down, four to go




While the Comanche Indians didn’t quite match the undefeated start they had to last season, there’s no doubt they have been exciting to watch on the field.

First-year quarterback Kale Reed has defied all expectations through six games, throwing for 361 yards on 35-of-75 passing with three touchdowns. He also has 760 yards rushing with 14 touchdowns.

Clayton Fennell has also carried the ball 50 times for 374 yards and five scores.

Offensively, Comanche is averaging 29.2 points per game, while only allowing 21.8 points per game.

With a 4-2 overall record and a 2-1 district record, it seems like the playoffs could be in the Indians future once again this season.

However, CHS arguably has one of the toughest stretches to navigate through to finish the year.

Friday, the Indians travel to Washington before another road contest against Hobart. Week nine will see Comanche try and slow down the offensive juggernaut known as Frederick, before hosting Hinton in Week 10.


Things started out strong for the Marlow Outlaws in 2012, but have since gone south.

After victories over Lone Grove and Comanche to start the season, MHS has only won one game in its last four contests.

With a 3-3 record to go with 1-2 in district, the Outlaws face a tough road to get to the playoffs under first-year head coach Rob Renshaw.

While the defense has been lights out, only allowing 17 points per game, the offense has struggled, only scoring 15.2 points per game.

Trey Coffman has carried the ball 167 times this season, for a total of 709 yards and six touchdowns. Senior quarterback Wakely Bergner has 449 yards passing on 35-of-72 passing with two TD’s.

Undefeated Tuttle will be next up for the Outlaws Friday night on the road. Marlow will then return home for senior night against Little Axe before road games at Bridge Creek and Kingfisher finish the season.

  • Duran Duran has one obstacle left: State

    Midway through her sophomore year, Comanche’s Alexis Duran had her athletic life taken away from her, but this spring she got it back in spectacular fashion.
    An ACL tear in basketball kept the three-sport star out for a full year before she got to compete again in track as a junior. Duran didn’t just show up and run, she pushed for medals and came just shy of making the state tournament, finishing one spot away by a tenth of a second.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
