It was a night to remember for Aailiyah Negonsott on Tuesday in Meriden as the star senior scored the 1,000th point of her high school career and helped her Jeff West girls post a 58-28 win against rival Perry Lecompton to improve to 12-2 on the season.  Aailiyah finished with 29 points, including 11 in the second quarter when the Tigers used a 20-7 run to take control of the game.  Perry was within 32-26 with just over four minutes to play in the third quarter, but Negonsott and the Tigers again answered to the tune of a 26-0 run that carried into the fourth period and make the score 58-26. 

Aailiyah is now the leading scorer in Jeff West history with 1,001 points and with five straight wins has the Lady Tigers ranked #7 in the state in Class 3A with a big game against Sabetha (11-3) coming up on Friday.  Heather Kahler added all 10 of her points in the second half and Kristin Biltoff chipped in seven for Jeff West.  

Perry led 10-8 after one quarter with Allison Nally scoring six early points and finishing with 12.  Yet, the Kaws had 19 turnovers and lost for the first time in three games to stand at 5-9 on the season.

The Perry Lecompton boys played with a lot of energy and passion on Tuesday in a rivarly game against the only team that had beat them this year in the Big 7 League.  The Kaws shot over 75 percent from the  field in the first half to open up a 13-3 lead and take control at 37-17 late in the second quarter before coasting to the win.  Conner Anderson scored 9 of his 16 points in the first quarter and Blake Farmer erupted for 10 of his 18 in the second quarter and the Kaws dominated the glass and pain production.  Conner Morgison hit a pair of early three-pointers and finished with 11 points as #10 ranked Perry Lecompton won their 10th straight game and improved to 12-2 on the season and 8-1 in Big 7 play.  

Jeff West again missed 6'5, senior forward Zeth Unruh and dropped their third straight game following a six-game winning streak.  The Tigers are 8-6 overall after Quinn Neunswander scored 16 points and was 8-8 at the foul line and Bryce Clements chipped in 12 points.
