1967-68                       Return to Year-by-Year                              HOME

STATE CHAMPIONS  CLASS AA: Wyandotte  CLASS A: Wamego  CLASS B: Tribune  CLASS BB: Brewster

                        Hayden continued to rebuild during this season. Coach Bueltel brought the team back to a competitive status (13-9) and he would never have another losing season at Hayden. The previous year's sub .500 record was only his third losing season since he started at Hayden in 1952. Highlight of this year was the team's performance at the Topeka Invitational tourney. Hayden had prepared for the tournament with a surprising win over Topeka High. The first round win over Wichita East was a big upset at the time. Greg Laird played some of his best games during this period. Don Faught, Joe Konrade, Carl Beier and John Gibbs gained more experience this year as Juniors. 1968 would mark the last year of competition for Hayden in the highest state classification. Hayden came close to knocking off Topeka High in the Class AA Regional semi-final.
