Just one week remains before the holiday break for the high school basketball season and Friday night the Atchison Redmen played host to the Rossville Bulldawgs. Atchison split the doubleheader with the Lady Dawgs taking the girls game 48-36 while the Redmen took the boys game 70-45.


The night began with the Atchison girls searching for their first win of the season and while the Lady Red played well at times their youth and inexperience showed in a 48-36 loss to Rossville.

The Lady Dawgs jumped out to an 11-6 lead after the first quarter as Atchison’s only points came from senior Kadejah Ross while the Lady Red also committed seven turnovers.

Atchison played much better offensively in the second quarter only committing two turnovers, but the Lady Red couldn’t find a way to stop Rossville senior Caila Hill as she notched seven points in the quarter to push the Lady Dawg’s lead to 20-14 at halftime.

Hill put the game away for Rossville with eight more points in the third quarter, as the Lady Dawgs pushed their lead to 15 points after three quarters.

Hill was outstanding all night long finishing with a game-high 27 points on 11 of 16 shooting from the free throw line.

Atchison had chances in the second half to pull back within single digits, but nine was the closest they got as Kadejah Ross led the way with 18 points while the Lady Red shot just 5 of 18 from the line.

The loss dropped Atchison to 0-5 on the year, while Rossville improved to 2-3.

Rossville: Caila Hill – 27, Caylee Zemek – 6, Taylor Morelli – 5, Destiny Bergstresser – 4, Mary Shults – 3, Erika Hatina, Katie Glotzbach – 1.

Atchison: Kadejah Ross – 17, Ayden Saunders – 8, Winny Harris – 3, Zamauria Herring – 2, Katy Harris – 2, Kenliegh Liggett – 2, Amari Rawls – 1.


The boy’s game was all Atchison to start as the Redmen got out to a 20-4 lead after the first quarter before going on to win 70-45.

In that opening quarter Atchison used their defense to create offense forcing nine Rossville turnovers while seven different players scored in the first for the Redmen.

Rossville played much better in the second quarter as five different guys scored, but Atchison freshman Christian Bowen-Webb dropped seven points to help the Redmen hold onto a 15-point lead at halftime.

Atchison sophomore Xavier Hernandez followed Bowen-Webb up with seven points of his own in the third quarter, as the Redmen put the game out of reach before blowing it open with a 20-point fourth quarter.

Bowen-Webb led Atchison with 18 points, while Hernandez finished with 15 and sophomore Xavier Cushinberry 10.

Atchison (2-3) will next be in action Tuesday hosting Savannah, while Rossville (0-5) travels to Silver Lake.

Atchison: Christian Bowen-Webb – 18, Xavier Hernandez – 15, Xavier Cushinberry – 10, Christian Arnold – 8, Garyeon Simpson – 7, Omarion Daniels – 4, Patrick Denton – 2, Hannibal Vick – 2, Malachi Vick – 2, Alex Martin – 1.
