COLONY — Ursula Billings is more than just a “one-trick pony.” Not only does the Crest sophomore run cross country and track for the Lancers, she also competes for the Iola Seahorses in the pool.
The Register is on the lookout for our area’s top athletes! Whether it’s on the court, field, course, track or otherwise, we want to honor the best our area has to offer.
Each month, we’ll pick three male and female athletes as nominees for our Allen County Area Athletes of the Month. Readers can vote for their choices right here on this page.
The poll will go live at the end of the month and will remain up until Thursday at midnight. We’ll announce the winners that Saturday in both our print and online editions.
Now, most athletes will come from the high school ranks, but if you know a seven-year-old who’s the Babe Ruth of tee-ball or a 57-year-old who is pickleball’s Serena Williams, we will happily include them as well.
Know a superstar you think should be nominated? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include stats and reasons why they deserve to be honored. Include a picture if they’re not a high school athlete, and they very may end up a nominee!

Recent Yates Center graduate Hadley Splechter is arguably the best long distance runner southeast Kansas has ever seen.
All of Allen County knows what Elysia Kunkler brings to the track and jumping pits. But what keeps the Iola athlete pushing the limits to become a state champion, and where does she go from here?
The Register is proud to announce that Yates Center’s Hadley Splechter and Iola’s Elysia Kunkler were voted as May’s Allen County Area Athletes of the Month.
You would think that after around three months of slaving away at a sport like softball, one might be interested in a break.
In Yates Center’s Madelynn Collins’ case, you’d be dead wrong.
The Register is back on the hunt for what readers consider are the area’s top athletes. Last month, we nominated six nominees who were the top of their class and now we’ve picked six more for May.
Yates Center sophomore golfer Easton Reynolds traded in his baseball bat and glove for a set of golf clubs around three years ago and he’s never looked back.
