With May nearly here, it will not be long before high school sports teams head into regional action and try to qualify for State events.
Here is a look at the assignments that have been made by the Kansas State High School Activities Association.

Regional assignments will only impact the Cheney Cardinals, who play at the 3A level. Cheney will host an eight-team softball tournament, while the Cardinals’ baseball team will compete in nearby Kingman.
