The Marion High School girls basketball team was battered by Smoky Valley’s senior guard-forward tandem of Rhys Pihl and Jenna Koch Friday night and absorbed a 77-60 loss in Lindsborg.
Winter wrapped the region in a blanket of snow, but Koch and Pihl were red-hot, combining for 54 points. Pihl led the Vikings with 32 points, while Koch added 22.
No other Viking topped six points, but the eruption from the twosome wiped out double-digit efforts from Marion’s Julia Zeiner, Lindsay Hett and Kayley Heerey.
