McPherson’s eighth-grade girls’ B-team rolled to a pair of wins Saturday in the Salina Lakewood Jamboree to up its record to 13-1.

The Bullpups rode a 17-point performance by Bailea Crist to nearly double up Great Bend, 31-16. Then she scored 16, and was aided by Mattea Black’s 15 points, in a 35-17 rout of Hays.

“We played very well in both games, our defense was right on point,” MMS coach Jay Crawford said. “Bailea Crist and Mattea Black carried us offensively. The girls played with great energy. I was very proud of how well we competed on both ends of the court. This group has improved in every game.”

MMS B (31) — Schmidt 2, Brooks 2, Wilson 2, Black 8, Crist 17.

MMS B  (35) — Wilson 2, Brooks 2, Black 15, Crist 16.
