The Rye High School Boys’ basketball team split a pair of road games last week and await information on post season play.

Against Hoehne last Tuesday Rye led 34-32 at half but were outscored by 7 points in the third quarter and 14 points in the final quarter. Hayden Polk led Thunderbolt scorers with 15 points and Camden Goding had 13 points.

“Hoehne was the exact kind of test we predicted it would be,” shared Head Coach Kyle Spencer. “It was a tough, physical, competitive game. It was a battle until the last three minutes where Hoehne made one final push and we weren't able to counter. They scored a lot of late game free throws and a couple run-outs from scramble situations to create the big separation at the end.”

Four days later the Thunderbolts traveled to Simla and came away with a ten-point victory. Michael Valdez had 13 points to lead the scorers with Brock Benz and Hayden Polk each throwing in eight points.

“Simla was our most complete game of the year,” assessed Spencer. “We were able to counter every run that Simla made and took care of the ball. We separated ourselves on the offensive glass by winning big rebounds.”

Tuesday night the Thunderbolts ended the season with a game against Rocky Ford. Prior to that game Swallows and Rye are in a tie for the number three seed with the tie breaker being RPI.

It is currently a difference of .004 percent. If Rye win beat Rocky Ford, they will likely win the tiebreaker and go to Crowley County next Monday for the first-round game. If Rye lost Tuesday night, they will most likely host Las Animas in the play-in game on Thursday. Game times are tentatively set for 6:00pm for either scenario.
