Eagles end season with hard-fought game

Dodging number 31, Gracie Pfannenstiel moves in to the basket before the ball is knocked out of bounds by Hill City.

The TCHS girls’ basketball team faced the Hill City Ringnecks in the 2A Sub-State Semifinals on Thursday, March 1.  The game was an intense and hard fought battle, but the Eagles ended just short of a win.

During the first quarter, the Eagles started out on top, maintaining a slight lead.  However, the ladies struggled against the Ringneck defense, and the Ringnecks edged ahead in the second quarter.  When the buzzer signaled half-time, the scoreboard was 26-31.  It would be a deficit that the Eagles would not be able to make-up.

The Eagles returned from the locker room determined and focused.  Trego outscored the Ringnecks by one point and brought the point spread to four.  The Eagles and Ringnecks were basket for basket in the fourth, and both teams had 17 points. When the clock ran out, the final score was 57-61.

Lili Shubert was top point earner for the Eagles with 23 points.  Tillie Malinowsky followed with 11.

The Eagles ended with a 15-7 season.

Trego had one wrestler who competed in the State Wrestling Tournament on February 23-24 in Hays.

Dillon Dunn wrestled his way from the backside of the bracket to medal. Dunn lost his first match in overtime by decision against Charlie Nordquist of Marion. He won his next three matches by decision against Christophe King of Oskaloosa, Dane Whalen of Osage City, and Collin Rossillon of Perry-Lecompton. Wrestling for the third place match, Dunn lost by fall to Charlie Nordquist of Marion.   

This loss placed Dunn in the match for fifth and sixth place where he faced Adrian Gerber of Chaparral.  Gerber defeated Dunn in a 2-5 decision.  However, Dunn wrestled very well as a sophomore and earned a sixth place medal.

On Saturday, February 10, two Trego freshmen girls—Sydney Boyle and Jessika Chapman—competed at the second annual KSHSAA Girls’ State Wrestling in McPherson. Boyle left the meet with a fourth place medal around her neck.

In her first round, Sydney Boyle wrestled Cheyenne Harris of Humbolt and won by major decision. Boyle fell by decision in her second round to Haley Schafer from McPherson. Against Erie’s Katy Rounds, Boyle won by fall in the third round. In the final round, however, Altamont-Labette County’s Abbie Jones proved to be tough competition, beating Boyle by fall.

Jessika Chapman also attended. In her first round, Kaleigh Marbut of McPherson won by fall over Chapman. After a bye round, Meriden-Jefferson West’s Montana Grahem won by fall over Chapman.

One hundred and thirty-five girl wrestlers, a number nearly double to the number last year, represented 57 schools.

Coach Jeremy Samson commented on the event.

"This was a very cool event that really changed my perspective on girls wrestling.  This movement is real; there have now been nine states that are sponsoring wrestling as an official girls sport.  I believe in the near future KSHSAA will sponsor a girls’ only division."
