SALINA — McPherson’s eighth-grade A-girls completed a fabulous pre-2014 portion of the schedule Saturday by thrashing Great Bend 46-18, their 12th win without a loss.

Taylor Robertson scorched the nets for 25 points and Mandi Cooks added nine.

“The girls have played very hard and have improved a great deal,” MMS coach Jay Crawford said. “It has been a very tough schedule with 12 of our 16 games for the A-team before Christmas break. We have played very well as a team and continue to put ‘Team Above Self.’ The team is looking forward to Christmas break, but will come back to finish the season strong.”

The B-team is 9-1 after a 40-12 domination.

Bailea Crist toasted Great Bend for 19 points and Mattea Black furnished 10. Crawford said the team still has six games left and is looking forward to finishing strong.

MMS A (46) — Williams 1, Barrett 1, Hein 2, Schrader 4, Gabel 4, Cooks 9, Robertson 25.

MMS B (40) — Williams 2, Schmidt 3, Barrett 3, Wilson 3, Black 10, Crist 19.
