Jace Barton • Mark Twain football • Junior

Barton rushed for 183 yards and a touchdown to lead Mark Twain to a 24-22 upset victory over North Callaway in an Eastern Missouri Conference game last Friday night. The standout scored from eight yards out in the second quarter and carried the ball 30 times on the night. He also made seven tackles on defense.

Maddie Janes • Hannibal volleyball • Senior

Janes led Hannibal with six kills during a sweep at Kirksville on Tuesday night to earn the Lady Pirates' eighth consecutive outright North Central Missouri Conference championship. The senior outside hitter is a key part of a balanced offensive attack engineered by setters Kyler Rademan and Kaylee Falconer.
