Ladies and Gentlemen, we would like to take this opportunity to recognize a team that 40 years ago this season brought home an Undefeated State Basketball Championship to Troy High School and to the Troy community. Their accomplishments and success is one that has never been matched and one that will always be the bench mark that all Troy teams will strive to achieve. Known as the “Cardiac Kids”, they moved through the 2A State tournament held in Topeka in the old Municipal Auditorium winning the 3 games by a total of 5 points defeating Quinter 76-74 in the Championship contest. The Trojans were the only high School team in the state of Kansas that year to end the season undefeated at 25-0.
And now for the players:
John Mike Marriott
And now the coaches,
Assistant Coach Lyle Rockey
Head Coach Kevin Kelley
The accomplishments of this group include being the Highland Tournament Champions, the DVL Tournament Champions, the DVL League Champions, Sub-State Champions and in the end, 2A Kansas State High School Boys Basketball Champions. In August 2008, the 1984 Championship team was inducted into the KSHSAA Hall of Fame.
Congratulations again and thank you for the memories and pride that you have brought to this town and to Troy High School.

Members of the Troy High School National Honor Society visited the Doniphan County Pet Rescue on Thursday, February 15. They helped organize the office and the isolation room, moved a grooming tub and multiple bags of supplies, and interacted with the animals. The volunteers went after school, sacrificing their own time for the effort. Special thanks to Trina Earl, Director of the Doniphan County Pet Rescue, for facilitating the event.

Troy Schools has finished their new multi-purpose room for the current students and future students of the district. This space is the former industrial arts room. Even though the board of education and administration were disappointed to see the industrial arts program go away, we are all excited about the opportunities and possibilities that exist in, and with this new facility. During the spring seasons the baseball and softball teams will be able to use part of this space for hitting and fielding practice. Currently Mr. Dominguez uses the room after school with students for weights and conditioning. Most students enrolled in a PE/Weightlifting class have begun using the room for their benefit also. A few new pieces of exercise equipment were added such as the treadmill and exercise bikes. The Booster Club has also designated funds for some new equipment when needed, which is very much appreciated.
Congratulations to 2024 King and Queen of Courts - Hayden Hegarty and Eva Fuemmeler!
