ST. JOSEPH - New athletic director at Benton, Brett Goodwin's first hire at the school was to hire his replacement, Kerstyn Bolton. She takes over the program Goodwin has led for 17 years, winning two state championships, multiple Missouri Class 4 Final Fours and plenty of district championships. 

Bolton served as an assistant for the past three seasons at Benton. She played her high school basketball at Benton. 

"I plan to really continue the success we've had, you know, with the help of Brett but also just with an insane amount of work. Like I said I don't know, I don't have a lot of words it's all come fast but I'm just very thankful for what this opportunity is," Bolton said.

The Lady Cardinals return plenty of girls from last year's team. Their season ended with a sectional loss to Kearney High School.

A weak cold front will pass through for our Friday, giving us a slight chance for rain this morning ahead of it. We'll have cloudy skies through the morning into the afternoon so it will be dry in time for Friday night high school football. Temperatures will be near average in the middle 60s thanks to the breezy southwest winds, but the cloud cover will be the main factor.
