Time of the Season

Members of the Arkansas City High School, top, and Winfield High School football teams battle temperatures hovering near 100 degrees Monday afternoon on the official First Day of Fall Practice. Most practices around the area were limited due to the heat, which included a Heat Advisory issued by the National Weather Service as the heat index approached 110 degrees. The two teams open the regular season at 7 p.m. Sept. 6 in the annual Cowley Cup game at Richard L. Jantz Stadium in Winfield. The Bulldogs won a low-scoring 7-3 game last year at Bulldog Stadium in Ark City, and holds an unofficial 52-24-1 lead in the series.
