By The Mercury

With wins in their sub-state finals on Saturday, the Rock Creek and Frankfort boys’ basketball teams advanced to their respective state tournaments.

The Rock Creek boys beat Riley County 64-59 in the Class 3A sub-state final at St. Marys, clenching a state berth for the first time since 1994.

Frankfort had a harder time in its Class 1A-DII game, going to overtime with Baileyville B&B, where the Wildcats won 55-54.

The Mustangs will play their state tournament in Hutchinson with action starting Wednesday. Frankfort’s state tournament in Hays will start on Wednesday as well.

Two other teams had a chance at making the state tournament, as both the Riley County and Wamego girls’ teams fell on Saturday night.

The previously undefeated Falcons lost to Silver Lake 50-44 despite 18 points from Kelly Thomson and 13 from Rachel Rheaume.

Wamego lost a game against Class 4A No. 1 Holton at Holton, 70-53.
