Wildcats give six-time champ their strongest challenge yet

Senior Macy Doebele drives around a Central Plains player. She averaged a double-double at the tourney.

The Hanover girls found themselves in the state championship game for the third year in a row on Saturday in Dodge City. Though the Hanover girls were the two-time defending state champions in Class 1A-Div. 1, their Class 1A state championship game opponent was the Central Plains Oilers, who were the five-time defending Class 2A state champions.

Hanover was competitive in the first half, only trailing 21-27 at the break, before Central Plains pulled ahead to win 52-34 over the Lady Wildcats. This is the closest game the Oilers have had all season. Their six-straight state championships is a record.

Hanover struggled with shooting efficiency in the game, making just 24.4 percent of their shots and going 0/8 in the second half with 3-pointers. Central Plains shot 37.5 percent and made 15 of 16 free throws.

Hanover 10 11 3 10 34 Central Plains 12 15 11 14 52

Points – Doebele 15, Lohse 9, E. Bruna 6, Hynek 2, Hendrickson 1, Stallbaumer 1.
