“It a legacy that we want to keep doing,” Michael said.

MOUNDRIDGE – Kevin Vivanco, a junior at Moundridge High School, is a part of the Wichita Symphony Youth Orchestra Program as a percussionist.

Vivanco auditioned for the orchestra late last year.

“It was a one-on-one audition with a professor from Wichita State University,” Vivanco said. “I had to play a selected piece and we talked about the different techniques on the snare drum.”

As a percussionist, Vivanco said he also plays the bass drum and the cymbals as well.

“It’s not very different,” he said. “It’s a symphony, not a concert band. You get to relax a little more.”

Vivanco got involved with instrumental music at the elementary school level.

“I really enjoyed it in the fifth grade,” Vivanco said. “I love playing the snare drum. I feel like this is something I really want to do.”

GREAT BEND – Facing a deficit to start the fourth quarter, the Moundridge High School girls basketball team rallied for a 43-34 win against Little River in the third-place game in the Hilltop Hoops Classic Friday, Jan. 26, in the Barton Community College gymnasium in Great Bend.

MHS head coach Brian Holloway said the girls began playing to their abilities on the court.

“I felt like we started out the game almost pushing too hard,” Holloway said. “We were trying to do too much on our own.

“Bethany (Stucky) played a lot better in the fourth quarter,” he continued. “That made a difference.”
