Article Image Alt Text

Hanover’s Tianna Lohse will play basketball at Cloud County Community College.

The recruiting process for Hanover senior Tianna Lohse with Cloud County Community College went a little different than usual. “It was all done over phone, email and text. They sent me a virtual tour of the campus,” said Lohse, describing her process with Cloud County Community College. A few weeks before sub-state Lohse had thought about CCCC as an option, wondering if they would reach out. Shortly after Hanover clenched the sub-state title and gearing up for the State tournament in Dodge City, Lohse began talking with the coaches at CCCC about the chance.

Hanover and Clifton-Clyde came out with aggressive defenses in the Class 1A substate girls basketball championship game on Saturday in Riley, but Hanover’s up-tempo offense and full court press proved troublesome for Clifton-Clyde. Hanover jumped to an 8-2 lead to start the game, eventually causing Clifton-Clyde to call a time out halfway through the quarter to try and slow things down. Hanover sank three 3-pointers in the first quarter and went 6-6 from the free throw line to end the quarter with a 17-9 lead.

Hanover used their deep bench to rotate through a lot of substitutions in the second quarter, staying very fresh. They also stayed hot from the 3-point line, again sinking three from beyond the arc, including one at the very end of the half by Tianna Lohse to go up 30-13 at the break.
