South Girls Throttle Ark City, Boys Falter

Pat StrathmanJanuary 4, 2019

With the start of a new year, Salina South girls basketball made sure to open 2019 the right way.

Senior Camdyn Schreiber poured in a career-high 23 points on her birthday, South forced 31 turnovers, and the Cougars throttled the Ark City Bulldogs, 59-17, to earn their first win of the season Friday night.

Salina South (1-6) didn’t have the ideal start, opening the contest with back-to-back turnovers. Once that was out of the system, the Cougars created an 18-2 advantage after one.

The ensuing quarter saw just five South points, but the Cougars responded with 30 points after halftime, including 14 from Schreiber to grab the Salina Ortho Player of the Game. Freshman Kylie Arnold added a career-high 13 points, seven coming in the first period.

Salina South returns to AVCTL-I play next when the Cougars head to Hutchinson to face the Salthawks. Pregame coverage begins at 5:45 on Y93.7.

Both teams struggled to find offensive rhythm in the return to the floor. Salina South took an early 4-0 lead, but saw the tables turn after Ark City’s first bucket with 3:40 left in the opening quarter. The Bulldogs finished the frame with a 12-6 advantage.

Ark City (6-1) flirted with a double-digit margin in the second, expanding the mark to 21-12 before South trimmed the deficit to 21-16 at the break.

The Cougars (1-6) hung tough with the No. 6 team in Class 5A, staying within six before Ark City hit a pair of threes and received an and-one bucket by senior stud Cevin Clark, ballooning the lead out to as many at 17.

South had one final push in the fourth quarter, but could never get closer than eight points. Sophomores Colin Schreiber and AJ Johnson had 12 and 13 points, respectively. Senior Elex Banks was the Salina Ortho Player of the Game, pouring in 19.

Ark City’s Clark recorded his second 40-point game of the season, matching the same mark as he did versus Maize South.
