Pioneer C Koontz’s college choices growing, race ’wide-open’

WAUKOMIS, Okla. — Colby Koontz’s college menu has expanded, but the 6-foot-9 Pioneer junior is no closer to making his decision on where he’ll be playing after high school.

After helping push Pioneer, now 11-5, to its seventh Skeltur Tournament since 2004 with a 14-point, 18-rebound outing on Saturday, Koontz - who added Oral Roberts University to a list of scholarship offers that already included South Dakota, Montana State and Lehigh - remained mum on his future.

“It’s wide open right now,” he said. “I’m just gonna see what I get and go from there.”

And why not? He’s still got a season left to potentially earn offers from top-flight schools, and Ivy League-ers Colgate and Princeton apparently have kicked the tires on Koontz, though not directly. So let the race continue

  • Cheer with a Cause ... And mom made the ceremony

    Pond Creek-Hunter softball shortstop Haylee Lorenz signed to play for Butler Community College (Kan.) during a small event last week, but perhaps the most important part almost didn’t make it.
