South Loup Bobcats Sports 

“People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.” - Vince Lombardi

The South Loup Bobcats is a cooperative athletic organization including Arnold Public Schools and Callaway Public Schools.  The cooperative effort began in 2007 as a concept to strengthen numbers, giving all athletes an opportunity to compete.  The result is a new level of school spirit, excellence, and camaraderie that has reached beyond the athletic fields into our schools and communities.  The creation of South Loup Bobcats has been positive and successful and is often looked at as a model of teamwork and unity in high school cooperative sports.


Practices have changed a little bit since the beginning. When we started, we went week by week. Week 1 we were in Callaway or Arnold and then the following week we would rotate. Now, we have all fall sports in Callaway and all Spring sports in Arnold. The winter sports we still rotate week to week.
