Great Bend Middle School girls sweep pair
GB 8th girls
Great Bend Middle Schools Jordan Turner drives around a defender to score.

When a team has gone undefeated and outscored their opponents for the season 186-80, keeping them focused and motivated can be tough but not for GBMS 8th grade B-team coach, Courtney Maska.
Taking her perfect record to Garden City Horace Good Middle School, the B-team girls played with intensity and after taking an early lead secured a 39-8 victory improving their record to 8-0.
“It’s not how we make mistakes, but how correct them that defines us,” Maska said. “Our goal is to capitalize on their mistakes.”
For the A-team, the story was a little different with GCHG taking an early lead after hitting two three pointers. The Lady Panthers (7-3) battled back, held a 17-12 lead going into halftime. They outscored the Hawks 24-2 in the second half for a 41-14 victory.
“Our depth and presses just wore our opponent out,” said Great Bend coach Kyle Jeffrey. “By the fourth quarter, we took the press off, but scoring against a tired defense became easy.”

GBMS A team—Taryn Warren 14 points, Hanna Loomis 7, Daltrey Kurth 5, Alayna Irwin 4, Makenna Tinkler 4, Allyson Kaiser 3, Steele Brack 2, Melyne Fletchall 2.
GBMS B team—Arely Reyes 10, Emma Loomis 7, Jordan Turner 6, Daltrey Kurth 6, Yulisa Valdez 4, Joselin Pando 2, Kylie Fruend 2, Casandra Enriquez 2.
