Lakin Broncs HPL Tournament Champions!

Lady Broncs 2nd in HPL Tournament

The Lakin Broncs completed their championship run through the Hi-Plains League Basketball Tournament with a 68-60 victory over the Southwestern Heights Mustangs at the Perryman Athletic Complex on the campus of Garden City Community College on Saturday night!  It was the boys first championship since winning back-to-back titles in 2007 and 2008.  The Broncs also avenged last season’s championship game loss to the same SWH team.

The Lakin Lady Broncs came up short in the championship game against the Meade Buffaloes, bringing home a second place finish in the HPL Tournament.  This was the first appearance in the championship game for Lakin since winning it all in 2000.  Although it was disappointing to finish the tournament with a loss, the girls wrapped up a very successful week and look to build on the strong showing throughout the rest of the regular season and into the post-season.

Congratulations and good luck the rest of the season Broncs!

Links to the brackets are below or on the athletics page for each team.

Please get out and support the Broncs and Lady Broncs!

Congratulations LMS Honor Choir Participants

On Saturday, January 23rd, seven Lakin Middle School students participated in the SWKMEA District Honor Choir in Dodge City.  Sixth graders Ally Brennaman, Megan Bell, and Kyle Hartman performed with the Elementary Honor Choir and seventh graders Julian Saxon and Bodhi Smith along with eighth graders Braxton Groth and Jordan Brink sang with the Middle School Honor Choir.

It is a great honor to be chosen to participate in the annual concert, and these young students represented Lakin very well!  A huge thank you to Mrs. Sonya Battin for all of her work in auditioning, practicing, and traveling with these students.  Also, thanks to the parents for supporting your kids in their musical endeavors.

Below is a video highlight of the concert featuring two songs from each performance.

News from Mrs. Terra Hill

Staff from all three buildings have been working hard at improving the school website.  This will help our parents know what we are up to in the classrooms and increase communication between teachers and families.  Teachers have had special training this year to get their information up online.  Some teachers have posted pictures from classroom activities and field trips that are fun to see.  Some teachers have links to websites that students use in the classroom and can practice on at home.  Some teachers have even posted part of their lesson plans so parents and students know what to do for homework.  Parents should be able to find contact information and schedules for teachers on the website.  Check it out on each school’s teacher pages at!
