Season highlights: Coach Rick Harris and Smoky Hill had another difficult season as part of the Centennial League, but the Buffaloes did double their win total from the previous season to two. Though not gaudy statistically, Paige was a bright spot in her first varsity season, especially with her tenacity on the defensive end. She contributed occasionally on offense and cracked double figures with a 10-point effort in a competitive loss to Overland. Paige will play in the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.
Paige vs. Aurora teams: vs. Hinkley (9 points); vs. Cherokee Trail (3 steals; 3 points, 2 steals); vs. Grandview (0 points; 1 point); vs. Overland (10 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists; 1 point); vs. Eaglecrest (1 point, 4 rebounds)
