    Page 4 of 5 - The Newton middle school eighth-grade girls’ A basketball team finished a recent slate of games 1-2. Newton lost to Maize South 44-33 and Valley Center 38-20 before beating Hutchinson 35-22 to open the Pioneer League Division I tournament. “We started the game tight and it took us the first quarter to relax and play,” Newton coach Bob Graber said of the Maize South game. “Free throws were the difference in the game — our missed free throws and their made free throws. We were only nine of 22 from the line, while they were 10 of 13. Hopefully, we learned from this game that we can beat this team and are looking forward to getting a chance to play them in the finals of the league tournament. “We started the (Valley Center) game off with cold shooting, and it went down hill from there. We played with very little intensity. We needed to prepare ourselves better for this game. We just didn’t want the win enough to go out and earn the win. We need to step it up for the tournament. “We started out tournament play with a strong performance. The girls played hard and rebounded well.” Newton is 8-6, finishing regular season play in the Pioneer League 3-3.

    The Newton eighth-grade girls’ B team ended the season with a pair of losses, falling to Maize South 22-19 and Valley Center 28-20. “Free throws have won us games in the past, and unfortunately, a poor night at the line resulted in a loss for the Lady Railer B team,” Newton coach Chris Headrick said of the Maize South game. “That along with too many turnovers proved to be a stumbling block for the girls. “The Lady Railer B team experienced a defeat in the last game of their season against a feisty Valley Center team.” Newton ends the season 12-3.
