The team also competed at the SWMO Championships last week. The results are below from coach Krev:

Opening Varsity Prelim, the 200-medley relay team of Missy Mizel, Lucy Hough, Addyson McKnight and Alexis Hapner set the tone for all of the Yellowjacket swimmers. Seeded 5th, they dropped their time by almost 3 seconds, setting a school record to grab the 2nd seed in the finals. As the 4th seed in the 200-free relay, they again dropped the school record by almost 3 seconds to claim the 2nd seed. Lucy and Missy secured the second and third seeds in the 50 free, both in season best times.  Lucy would capture the 1st seed in the 100-breaststroke with a school record.  Missy would grab the top seed with a season best time, closing out the varsity prelims. 

The 200 Medley relay would foreshadow the SWMO JV meet. Hidden in the 14th place finish by Elisha Dickens, Marissa Gress, Abigail Tague and Bayley Kranz, was an 11 second drop in time. Nahia Arrasate dropped 3 seconds and Ella Johnson dropped ¾ seconds to finish to 2nd and 3rd in the 200 Free.  Addyson McKnight contributed a personal best time to finish 1st in the 200-individual medley, dropping 3 seconds.  Dropping almost a second, Alexis Hapner swam a state qualifying time in the 50 free, finishing first.  In the 100-butterfly, Sadie Rinck demolished her personal best by 15 seconds, Kamilla Windsor lowered her time by 3 seconds,  grabbing 2nd and 3rd.  The personal best just kept coming, Addyson McKnight dropped 1.5 seconds, Alexis Hapner droppedm2.1 seconds, and Jenna Masseydropped 2.34 seconds,  finishing 1st, 2nd and 4th in the 100 free. Dropping 7.5 seconds, Ella Johnson swam her best ever 500 free, taking first place.  The 200-free relay of Windsor, Massey, Elisha Dickens and Johnson finished 5th. In perhaps the most stunning individual performance, in the 100 breaststroke, Sadie Rink, seeded 17th, drops her personal best time 10 seconds to finish second. Possibly outshining Sadie, the 400-free relay of Jenna, Nahia, Nahia and Ella, Kamilla, seeded 9th, drops 46 seconds to win the relay. The JV team finished in first 4 times, 5 second 5 times, and third 3 times, taking home just over just over 1/3 top positions available.

The 200 medley relay final opened the SWMO Varsity Finals, with a thrilling and hotly contested race.  Missy, Lucy, Addyson, and Alexis finished 2nd just finishing ahead of Ozark by ¼ of a second.  The 50 free had the top 5 separated by 4 tenths of a second. Missy finished second and Lucy third.  Alexis, Addyson, Missy and Lucy captured second in another thrilling relay, where the difference between 1st and 3rd was .5 seconds. Missy finished first in the 100-backstroke and Lucy finished 1st in the 100-breaststroke.

LHS basketball teams compete at tournaments

It was a busy weekend for the boys’ and girls’ basketball programs.

The girls’ team hosted the annual Mid-Missouri Bank I-44 Lady’s Classic on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Made up of eight teams, the Lady ‘Jackets (6-12 overall) brought home the consolation championship with 51-42 win over Warrensburg.

In their first round matchup, LHS fell to a talented Lee’s Summit West team, 58-49. On the backside, they bounced back on Friday night, defeating St. Charles 67-53.

“We couldn’t get quite close enough to put them (Lee’s Summit West) away,” head coach Brian Decker said. “We moved over to the left hand side and had a quality performance, especially on the defensive end against St. Charles.

“Honestly, out of all the teams in the tournament, we are the only ones who pressed every possession and I think that helped us because the other teams were gassed by the third day. It gave us a good advantage, we wore them down, and we pulled it out at the end.”

The boys’ team competed at the 45th annual Hermann tournament on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Lebanon went 2-1 to a third place finish with wins over Wright City and St. James.

The livestreams of those games can be found on the Jacket Nation Sports YouTube page.

The team will compete at the Ozark Invitational on Saturday, January 6, Carthage Invitational on Saturday, January 11, and the Zizzer Invitational on Saturday, January 13.

Basketball teams compete at Holiday Tournaments and boys pick up rivalry win over Camdenton

Both the Lebanon High School girls’ and Lebanon High School boys’ basketball teams competed in Holiday tournaments over the Christmas Break.

The Lady ‘Jackets went 0-2 at the Pink and White Lady Classic with a 82-48 loss to Nixa in the first round and a 66-44 loss to Bolivar on the consolation side.

They are set to face Camdenton tonight (January 4) at Boswell Auditorium and hope to start the 2024 year off with a victory.

We had coverage here for the LHS boys’ first round loss to the Mountain Grove Panthers in a tight battle, 65-62. The ‘Jackets had a chance to tie the game at the buzzer, but came up short.

The loss pushed Lebanon to the backside of the bracket where they would go on to defeat Reeds Spring (63-27) and Aurora (83-62).

In the Consolation championship, it was Bolivar who came out on top after a tough shooting night for LHS, 52-41.

Lebanon was down 13-3 after the first quarter and 30-19 at halftime. They would go on to outscore the Liberators in the 3rd, but were outshot at the free throw line 26-8 at the end of 32 minutes.

In their Highway 5 rivalry game against the Camdenton Lakers on Tuesday, January 2, the Yellowjackets brought the traveling trophy back home with a 68-52 win in Camden County.

LHS shot 47 percent from the field and had 14 points off turnovers in their victory.
