The move to the boys’ side has been a good one for Alex Hutchins. The Hays High coach took last year’s team to the final four before the season was interrupted by a pandemic last March. Friday night, his top-ranked Indians defeated Great Bend 50-32 to cap the school’s first perfect regular season since 2013-14.
Only one team has managed to beat Hesston this season. After an overtime win against the Swathers, Lyons set its sights on No. 7 Hoisington Friday night in another premiere Central Kansas League battle.
Three-point shooting was contagious on Homecoming Night in Ellinwood. After the Lady Eagles made seven treys in the second half of their win against Kinsley, the Ellinwood boys followed with 14 3-pointers to net a running clock in a 63-30 win over the Coyotes.
