FRONTENAC — The stage is set for the Frontenac and Girard High School boys’ basketball teams to square off in the Kansas 4A DII sub-state championship on Saturday, after both teams came away with wins on Friday night.

TROJANS TOO MUCH FOR BUFFALOES

Caleb Muia did his part in Girard’s 68-56 win over Prairie View, scoring a team-high 30 points to help the Trojans sustain a double-digit lead for a majority of the contest.

“I think we performed well,” Muia said. “I think we need to work on our defense and concentrate on not allowing them to shoot as often.”

RAIDERS SEND MUSTANGS PACKING

The Raiders followed it up with a 61-43 win in the second game of the night.

Frontenac set the tone early by jumping out to a large lead — with help from Daniel Watts and Hayden Pile — and never looked back en route to the win.

“I felt like our defense did a really good job,” FHS head coach Ryan Varsolona said. “Luckily, we were able to score some important points early on that put us in control.”
