The Fall Sports are Here

It’s always fun to hang out with some friends and watch the big games in your living room, but there are also plenty of opportunities this fall to get out and take in some of the local high school and college teams that compete in the Topeka/Shawnee County area. Washburn always fields competitive teams, and many of the area high schools have teams worth checking out as well.  Even if you don’t have a specific rooting interest, it can be a fun way to spend an afternoon or evening with family and friends. And it’s often times more affordable than going to see a professional or major college team. Here are several of the fall sports schedules for local teams I would encourage you to check out:
