Manuel Chavez led three players in double figures with 15 points as Wichita County managed to get a 57-43 win over Greeley County on Tuesday in Leoti.
Chavez was aided by Sheldon Whalen, who scored 12 points, and an all-around effort by Kayde Rietzke, who added 11 points, six rebounds and six assists in the victory.
The win for the Indians came in one of six games - three boys and three girls - which were played on Tuesday. Five of the scheduled boys-girls doubleheaders were postponed or cancelled due to a storm that hammered the southern part of the state.
