The Hays High School girls' basketball team fell well short of Gardner-Edgerton on Saturday, losing 64-27 in the seventh-place game of the 19th annual Mid America Classic, hosted by McPherson High School.

Despite three losses in three days, Hays High coach Kirk Maska was pleased with the effort and the experience gained by his young players.

"It was a good experience for the girls to see what other people are doing and be involved in the skills contest. Mattie Schlaefli tied in the three-point contest and lost in the shootout. But she got there," Maska said.

"The speed of the game is still a little bit fast for us and height wise we don't match up with anybody. I think we are realizing things we have to change and work on and hopefully we can make some improvements."

Hays High was held to a lone field goal in the first half against Gardner-Edgerton and trailed 44-7 at halftime. The Indians kept pace with the Trailblazers in the second half, led by a team-high nine points from junior Brooke Russell.

"I was really pleased with Brooke," Maska said. "When teams go to zone like Gardner-Edgerton did there, Brooke can really shine for us because she can spot up and get a shot off for us. She had several baskets there in the third and fourth quarter that got us going a little bit.

"It was nice to see the girls smiling out there and playing well."

On Friday, HHS lost to Wichita Northwest 54-34 in the tournament's consolation semifinals. Sophomore Audra Schmeidler led the Indians with eight points.

The losses send Hays High to 0-13 this season, but with only one senior on the roster Maska believes with experience -- and continued effort -- there is plenty of reason to be optimistic.

"The girls have been positive and they are doing their best. It's just something that is going to take a little bit of time," Maska said.

"It depends on how hard they want to work and I think a lot of that is going to be done on their own. If it's important to them they will get to the gym on down time and work on things and hopefully we will get that taken care of and see some progression."

Hays High will host Salina South at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
