Written by Janae Rempel Tuesday, 19 February 2013 13:51The Marion girls showed improved penetration in the lane Friday night at Bennington and rallied to within two points of the home team in the final quarter, but couldn’t pull off a win, dropping the contest, 51-42.
The teams entered a back-and-forth battle in the opening minutes of the first quarter.
Kaelyn Thierolf scored six of the Warriors’ eight first-quarter points, but after a Thierolf basket at 2:58 that gave Marion a slim, 8-7, lead, the Bulldogs surged 7-0 to end the quarter in front, 14-8.
The Warriors found themselves in early foul trouble, drawing their seventh team foul just 11 seconds into the second period.
But the Warriors battled to within three, 19-16, following consecutive baskets by Kirsten Hansen and Katey...
Written by Janae Rempel Tuesday, 19 February 2013 13:50After suffering a homecoming loss to Bennington a week prior, the Marion boys went on the road to face the Bulldogs a second time Friday looking for a different outcome.
But Marion let a first-half double-digit lead slip away, and the Bulldogs surged to a 12-point, 67-55, victory.
The Marion offense found its spark to open the game, capitalizing on Bennington missed shots to lead 15-8 at the end of the first quarter.
“I thought we came out with more aggressiveness and attack in mind against (Bennington’s) 1-3-1, and the result was good ball movement leading to good shots,” coach Jeff McMillin said.
The Warriors built a double-digit, 19-8, lead one minute into the second period, and Jordan Hett scored Marion’s final nine...
Written by Don Ratzlaff Tuesday, 19 February 2013 13:50It wasn’t easy to explain how a three-point halftime deficit turned into a 58-35 drubbing Friday at Haven.
Hillsboro boys’ coach Darrel Knoll said it as well as anybody could: “They just got on a roll and we didn’t make the right plays to stop that roll.”
The second-half stumble jeopardized the Trojans’ hopes for a home game in the first round of sub-state. Going into the evening, Marion had clinched the No. 1 seed, but each of the next four teams—including Hillsboro and Haven—were sporting seven losses. Only three of those teams will play at home next week.
The first half was a game you might expect from a matchup of teams with identical records. Hillsboro got off to a 5-2 start before falling behind 12-11 on a...

“We wrestled very well,” coach Chad Adkins said. “We have the ability to win state medals in Hays.
“We just have to go be aggressive and wrestle our style. To win a state championship, we will have to wrestle the best tournament of the year.”
Senior Brody Carroll paved the way for Marion by winning the 152-pound weight class. Sophomore Beretta Janzen placed second at 113, while senior Evan Slater placed third at 220. Senior Eric Regnier and sophomore Adam Janzen...
