MHS girls rout Blue Jays

By Grant Guggisberg

Manhattan High started slow, but finished in a big way, routing the visiting Junction City Blue Jays 71-21 to stay undefeated in Centennial League play and also clinch the top seed at sub-state in early March.

The Indians trailed 5-0 in the first quarter, but outscored the Blue Jays 33-2 the rest of the half and continued their dominance into the second half.

Darby Price led Manhattan with 15 points and nine rebounds. Caroline Ballard finished with 14 points with Amara Ehie adding nine points. Twelve players scored for the Indians.

Junction City was led by Kealee Rains and Kori Kamm, who scored nine and eight points, respectively.

Manhattan travels to Highland Park on Friday before finishing off its regular season with a tough week, hosting defending league champion Hayden on Tuesday and the other currently undefeated league team,
Seaman, the following Friday.
