January 5, 2013While seven of the eight teams competing in the Greater Wichita Area League vs the Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League showed signs of struggling on the court having not played since last year, the Wichita Heights girls looked as though they hadn't skipped a beat even with the absence of their head coach Kip Pulliam on the bench.
In particular, Heights senior Katie Palmer ran a good show, running the floor well and making 12 of 16 from the floor to lead the Lady Falcons with 27 points in a win over Hutchinson.
Other games at Koch Arena saw the Heights boys hold off a Hutchinson team which came from 10 down late in the game to go up by one only to lose the lead again with 18 seconds left in the game as Semaj Harvey drilled a jumper to give the lead back to Heights
Trevor Turner lead Hutch with 26 points.
In the early games, Maize took the girls game with Northwest although they did not pull away for the final margin until the fourth quarter where they scored all 18 points from the line. In fact, Maize hit only six field goals in the game and scored 34 of its 46 points at the line. Keiryn Swenson scored 19 points for the Eagles while Rhiannon Taylor was high for Northwest with 14.
The Northwest boys got down early and slowly crawled back into the game with the two teams playing neck and neck most of the game until right before the end of the third quarter, Northwest's Tyler Brown hit a three pointer and was fouled on the play, making the free throw. That would prove to be the final margin as the Grizzlies won 41-37.
