The TCHS girls’ basketball team defeated the Ellis Railroaders in Ellis on February 12.

The first quarter put the Eagles down by three points with a score of 9-15. During the second quarter, the Railroaders appeared to be holding the gap and outscored the Eagles by four points, leaving the score 21-25.

The Eagles scored one more point then the Railroaders during the third quarter shortening the gap. Continuing to struggle to pull ahead, the Eagles ended the fourth quarter in a tie. However, Trego outscored the Railroaders in overtime by three points, ending the game with a score of 51-48.

Libby Frost, a varsity player on the team, commented on the game.

“It wasn’t our best game, but we still pulled out the win. We came together and won as a team. For that reason, we are never out of a game.”

Two Trego girls traveled to McPherson on February 9 to compete in the Kansas Girls Wrestling Championship. Jessika Chapman and Sydney Boyle both performed well.

Chapman wrestled twice but did not place; however, Boyle placed fourth.

In pool play, Boyle pinned her first two opponents but lost in a 0-2 decision in her third match. She went on to win her consolation rounds, winning in a 2-0 decision and pinning her final opponent.

Boyle said, “Wrestling girls is a lot different than wrestling guys. It’s a lot fairer in matches  plus competing at girls state was a chance to get recognized for all of the work put in throughout the season.”
