    Newton downed Andover Central 43-39, Maize South 49-36 and Hutchinson 44-22 to open Pioneer League Division I play.
    "(The Andover Central game) was a great win for us," Newton coach Bob Graber said. "The girls were prepared mentally for the game. They came out strong, outscoring Andover Central 23-13 in the first half, and continued to play strong throughout the game. They bent a few times, but never broke. They held off every run Andover Central made. Areas we can improve on is on the ball defense, stopping double penetration.
    "The girls played a sound game (against Maize South). They adapted well to changes made throughout the game. They outrebounded Maize South 39-30. They did a good job of pushing the ball up the floor and attacking the basket.
    "I was concerned that the girls wouldn't be mentally ready to play (against Hutchinson), but my fears were unfounded. They were ready to play the minute they stepped on the floor. Our offensive execution was outstanding. Our defensive play was acceptable and we ran the floor well."
    Newton plays at 5 p.m. today at Derby.
