After making a record-tying seven 3-pointers in Friday night’s semifinals against Andale, McPherson High’s Taylor Robertson was the odds-on favorite to win the Mid America Classic’s 3-point shooting contest on Saturday morning.

And to the surprise of no one, she did.

Robertson scored 22 out of 30 possible points in the contest. Second place went to Brooke Russell of Hays, while Kyli Webber of Valley Center was third.

In a somewhat amazing story in the free throw contest, injured All-Stater Kylee Kopatich of Olathe South competed despite the fact she’s out for the year with a knee injury. But she was able to stand to shoot free throws, making 32 of 35 for the win.

Andale’s Rachel Friedrichs took second after a playoff with Hays’ Audra Schmeidler.
