Campus girls to face Derby


By Travis Mounts

The Campus Colts girls basketball team faced a familiar opponent in Tuesday’s substate opener – the top-ranked Derby Panthers.
Campus closed out the regular season with a pair of road defeats, starting with a 60-28 loss to the Hutchinson Salthawks. The Colts managed just 2 first-quarter points, and found themselves trailing 30-7 at halftime to Hutchinson, the No. 6 team in Class 6A West.
The Campus offense was more productive in the second half, scoring in double-digits both quarters for a total of 21 points.
“Hutchinson played pretty well,” said Campus head coach Robbie Wright. “We got into some foul trouble early and we dug a hole.”
The Colts struggled with shooting against Hutchinson, a struggle they have dealt with all season.
The goal for the Derby rematch is simple, Wright said.
“We need to compete. The first two times we’ve played them, we’ve started strong and competed well,” he said. He wants the Colts to finish the first quarter, and then take it quarter-by-quarter. See results of this game and all Tuesday contests on Page A1.
Campus: Tya Tindall 13, Sadie Hubbard 7, Brooke Pfeiffer 6, Mya Free 2.

Points were hard to come by as the Colts lost 49-16 at Maize South in the final regular-season contest for both teams.
Campus’ defense did a good job in the first half, and the Colts found themselves within striking distance at halftime, down 19-13.
“We played a great first half,” said Wright. “The defense was good. We kept it low-scoring, which we need to do to have a chance.”
The Mavericks shut out the Colts in the third quarter, and won the second half 30-3. Maize South’s shooting improved a lot in the second half. The Mavericks were able to contain Campus senior Tya Tindall, who is normally the Colts’ top scorer.
Campus: Sadie Hubbard 6, Mya Free 4, Kara Smith 3, Tya Tindall 3.
