Both McPherson eighth-grade girls basketball teams improved to 9-1 here Thursday with easy wins over Derby.

The A-team was a 40-25 winner as it had nice balance. Andrea Sweat’s 14 points were tops, followed by Cassie Cooks with 11 and Lakyn Schieferecke added 10.

The B-team, behind eight points by Rachel Carlson, scored a 27-10 success.

“Once again we had games where we shared the ball well,” MMS coach Jay Crawford said. “We play so much better when we share the ball and make plays for each other. We competed well and that’s what we have talked a lot about.”

The Bullpups play Monday at Andover. 

MMS A (40) — Mayfield 2, Strathman 3, Schieferecke 10, Cooks 11, Sweat 14.

MMS B (27) — Sweat 1, Hedlund 2, Collins 2, Pham 2, Tice 4, Mayfield 7, Carlson 8.
