Junior Broncos win MAYB basketball title

Winning five of seven games, the Spring Hill eighth-grade boys basketball squad recently captured first place in the Mid America Youth Basketball Tournament in Wichita.
The team won the C bracket title. Sixty-four teams from 10 states competed in the tourney.
“The championship completed a very successful first tournament,” said coach Duane Hodge. “I was real proud of the effort.”
In C bracket play, Spring Hill won four straight games. First round action saw the Broncos defeat Little River 42-17 behind Tyus Heinrich’s nine points.
Round two found Spring Hill winning by a lopsided 51-17 score versus Olpe. Danny Hodge had 20 points.
In semi-final action, Spring Hill defeated Emporia 37-27 behind the eight points of Nick Reynolds.
In the title game, Spring Hill won a re-match with Nebraska. Zach Mayhan led the way with 11 points and seven rebounds.
“Mayhan’s key 12-footer late in the game secured the win,” Hodge added.
Heinrich added seven points; Reynolds, four; Charles Elam, four; Conner Eckert, four; Michael Londene, four; Hodge, three; and Christian Esparza, two.
