  • HAYSVILLE — The Newton High School boys’ basketball team had some nervous moments, but came away with a 50-36 win over Campus Tuesday in Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League Division I play in Haysville. Newton trailed for nearly the entire first half, and part of the third quarter, before taking over in the fourth. Campus was held to 10 points in the second half. “We made a change at halftime in our press, and I thought our guys adapted to the change very well,” Newton coach Don Cameron said. “We didn’t shoot very well. Defensively, we played well, but we have to attack the basket. I was proud of the kids’ courage and perseverance.” Newton snaps a six-game losing streak, improving to 5-12 overall and 3-6 in AV-CTL I play. Campus falls to 2-15, 0-10 in league play. The Colts drop their fifth straight. Newton sweeps the season series. Austin Krogmeier led the Railers with 17 points. Eight other players scored. Marcus Saucedo led Campus with 10 points. Newton fell behind 5-0, but came back to tie the game 8-8. Campus then made a 9-0 run, including a four-point play. A Braeden Morrison layup broke the run and got Newton within seven at the end of the quarter, 17-10. Down by nine early in the second quarter, Newton drew as close as four with chances to get closer. Campus again pulled out by nine, but the Railers closed to within five on a pair of Brendan Downey free throws with 2.9 seconds left in the half, 26-21. Newton opened the third quarter with a 7-0 run capped by a Krogmeier three-point play and a short Downey jumper. Campus regained the lead with a pair of treys, but Newton responded with a 12-0 run to lead 40-32 at the end of the period. Newton opened the fourth quarter with layups by Josh Carlgren and Krogmeier, set up by Campus turnovers. Campus missed its first six shots from the field in the fourth quarter. Campus took a time out, but turned the ball over twice. Newton missed layups on both chances. Campus finally broke the shutout in the quarter with one of two free throws with 3:52 remaining in regulation. Newton plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Derby, 15-3 after a 70-53 win over Hutchinson. “They are a strong, state-ranked (fifth) Class 6A team,” Cameron said. “Our guys will show up to play Friday. We need to take care of the ball. They are a good defensive team. They are long, athletic.”
