Inman’s girls swamped Fairfield 44-21 Tuesday night to advance to the semifinals of the Sedgwick Invitational.

The Teutons came in as the lower seed, but tore out of the gates on a 9-0 run and later led 17-2.

Naomi Williams was a tower of power on the inside with 14 points to lead the Teutons, who play at 7:30 p.m. Thursday against Conway Springs.

Also at Sedgwick, Canton-Galva appeared headed to the semifinals as well, but Wichita Independent charged back in the fourth quarter to nip the Eagles, 35-34.

The Eagles took a four-point lead into the fourth quarter, but Independent scored nearly half of its points in the final eight minutes.

Erika Smith had a terrific game for C-G by draining four 3-pointers on her way to 16 points.


• Elyria Christian School girls 49, Chase 27 — The Eagles continued their pursuit of .500 with a convincing win to move to 6-7. With a win over Smoky Valley Home Educators in their homecoming game at the Eagle Dome Friday, ECS would be back at the break-even mark.

Anna Adamyk scored 19 points to lead the Eagles, including 10 free throws. Addison Fields and Rachal Adamyk added 11 points apiece.

“Chase did a good job slowing the game down in the first half,” said ECS coach Greg Fields, whose team led only 11-10 after a quarter before catching fire. “We had a very difficult time scoring the ball in the opening minutes.  Addison did a good job hitting some outside shots to open up the inside.  Anna and Rachel scored a lot of points for us around the basket.  Once again, Emily Thiessen had a solid game on the boards (seven rebounds).”

• Chase boys 45, Elyria Christian School 33  — The Eagles, for the second game in a row, started well, up 9-6 after a quarter, but that first win of the year continues to be elusive.

Spencer Kaufman had one of his best games of the season with 12 points.
