In an emotional night where USD 380 Superintendent Matt Rogers was supported in his battle with cancer the Centralia girls’ and boys’ basketball teams picked up a sweep at home over Frankfort.


The girl’s game was full of runs by both teams as Centralia made clutch free throws down the stretch to pull away for a 57-49 victory.

The first quarter was back-and-forth to start before Centralia ended the quarter on a 10-0 run to take a 19-13 advantage after one behind five points from senior Olivia Kuckelman.

Frankfort battled back and pulled within 24-20 in the second quarter before Centralia went on another 7-0 run to take a 31-20 lead into the half with junior Avery Mars scoring eight first half points.

Frankfort finally got back into the game in the third by forcing five Centralia turnovers and pulling within 42-40 going into the fourth quarter behind two 3-pointers from Kacia Shirley and five more points from senior Alli Tommer.

But in the fourth, Centralia knocked down a perfect 10-of-10 free throws with senior Morgan Kramer nailing 8-of-8 to pull away late.

Kramer led the Panthers (10-5, 7-1 TVL) with 13 points in the win while Avery Deters and Avery Mars each added 11.

Frankfort (9-7, 3-5) was led in the loss by Tommer’s 14 points while Aubrie Rose added 11.

The boy’s game was all Centralia from start to finish as the Panthers forced 21 Frankfort turnovers in a 60-46 win to remain perfect in Twin Valley League play.

Centralia raced out to a 14-11 lead after one quarter behind five Frankfort turnovers and five points from senior Kamble Haverkamp including a deep 3-pointer at the first quarter buzzer.

The Panthers extended their lead to eight points going into the halftime break with six more points from Haverkamp while the Wildcats committed 10 total turnovers in the first half.

Centralia put the game away with a 17-8 third quarter taking a 17-point lead into the fourth quarter behind eight more points from Haverkamp.

The Panthers put the game away with 18 fourth quarter points as senior Cooper Deters knocked down a pair of 3-pointers and scored eight points in the final period.

Centralia (9-5, 9-0 TVL) was led by Haverkamp’s 21 points on the night he was honored with his Kansas Shrine Bowl Game invitation while Deters added 14 and Raef Osterhaus 11.
