Week-3 2016 and 2017 Thursday/Friday Night Games
As many of you may have heard, a fellow High School website has broken huge news about the open scheduling similar to these past two Sunflower seasons.
Beginning in 2016 and 2017, the Sunflower League will partner with our neighbors from across the state line in the Suburban League.
The Suburban League is made up of 25 local Kansas City, MO metro High Schools from as far north as Platte County, to as far south as Ray-Pec. These 25 schools are featured each school year under enrollment divisions of Blue, Red, White, and Gold, formerly known as the Big 7, Big 6, Mid 6, and Small 6.
Once the seasons begin, there will be 10 total match ups (20 games total) while the SM North Indians face the Lansing Lions, and SM East will play Rockhurst.
Sunflower vs Suburban (Week-3) - Home and Home Series
Lawrence Chesty Lions vs Lee's Summit West Titans - 1st meeting
Free State Firebirds vs Park Hill Trojans - 1st meeting
Leavenworth Pioneers vs North KC Hornets - 1st meeting
Olathe East Hawks vs Liberty Bluejays - 1st meeting
Olathe North Eagles vs Blue Spring South Jaguars - 1st meeting
Olathe NW Raves vs Lee's Summit North - 1st meeting
Olathe South Falcons vs Lee's Summit Tigers - 1st meeting
SM Northwest Cougars vs Grandview Bulldogs - 1st meeting
SM South Raiders vs Winnetonka Griffins - 1st meeting
SM West Vikings vs Blue Springs Wildcats - 1st meeting
SM East Lancers vs Rockhurst Hawklets
SM North Indians vs Lansing Lions
Congrats to both leagues on great non-conference games entering the following school years ahead.
For now, some rivalries will now be on hold due to these games.
The SM East Lancers and SM South Raiders will not see each other unless it is a playoff game in week-9, similar to the Olathe North Eagles not playing the Olathe East Hawks.
Thank you again to Olathe North AD Jason Herman and fellow officials spearheading these games.
