Marshall Football Brings Experience
     The practices are done; it's time to play some football. The Chillicothe Hornets football team opens play Friday night at home against the Marshall Owls. The road team has won each of the last two meetings: Chillicothe winning at Marshall last year 21-0 and Marshall winning in the opening game of the new stadium two years ago. Hornets Coach Phil Willard says Marshall returns experience with seven back on offense and seven starters back on defense
          <Audio: Phil Willard>
     Willard stated Marshall likes to run the football using the pro split-back veer, some option and a little bit of power I and counter trey. The game has been pushed back one hour due to heat with the kick off at 8:00pm.

Cross Country Set to Compete
     The Chillicothe Cross Country teams look for improvement over last year when the boys took 4th and the girls 3rd in the Midland Empire Conference. Coach Tim Riekena says 12 runners return from last season.

He also has several new runners out this year but cautioned that it can take half a year or more before runners can expect to be ready to contribute on varsity. The season opens Sept 2nd at Maryville.

Changes In Sports Over The Years
     Nothing stays the same and that includes local high school sports. Chillicothe Principal Brian Sherrow, a former student athlete and head coach, sys the biggest change in sports from when he was a student in Chillicothe is the number of sports now offered.
          <Audio: Brian Sherrow>
     Sherrow also points to the heightening focus on sports due to the abundance of sports on television, the internet, and increased focus on recruiting services by Colleges.

Golf Team Returns Everyone
The Lady Hornets Golf Team had a strong season last year, placing 2nd in the MEC meet and 3rd in the District meet, sending one to the state golf tournament. This year everyone from that team returns under new coach Bob Long

     Expect last year's state qualifying team and conference champion Smithville to be the strongest contender for the MEC title


Volleyball Working For Start of Season 8/20
The Chillicothe Volleyball team will rely heavily on younger players for success this year. Five seniors graduated last year and this year's team has only two Seniors. Coach Karen Jackson hopes to have a set line up in place soon so the team can be ready for the start of the season
          <Audio: Karen Jackson>
     The Volleyball team opens play August 28th at Trenton

Soccer Wants District Title
     The Chillicothe Boys Soccer team has been on a roll the last few seasons with back to back 18-win seasons and three straight district title game appearances. Unfortunately they have yet to win a district championship. Coach Tim Cunningham hopes this is the year they can take the next step.
          <Audio: Tim Cunningham>
     Cunningham has a strong group of seven returning starters including five seniors that made the all-conference team last year.

Girls Tennis Numbers Look Good
     Numbers out for Lady Hornets Tennis are good again this year with nearly 20 girls on a team that returns the top five of six varsity players. Coach Ed Douglas is pleased at the numbers out this year. He says not every girl has a goal of being a state champion. Others have more modest goals, and that's just fine with him.
          <Audio: Ed Douglas>
     Chillicothe returns four players with State Tournament experience including Syndi Whiteside who placed 2nd in state last year, Ali Stephens who placed 4th in state and Kelly Westphal and Chelsea Long which qualified for the state doubles tournament last year.
