Junior Katren Rienbolt made 6 free throws in the final 1:06 of play Saturday night to propel Fort Scott High's girls to the Kansas Class 4A State Basketball Tournament next week with a 47-41 victory over top-seeded Frontenac in the Fort Scott Class 4A Sub-State Tournament championship game at the FSHS gymnasium.

The Tigers (17-5) have won 13 consecutive games and 17 of their last 18. They return to State for the first time since the 2007-08 season.

Fort Scott led by as many as 9 points early in the fourth quarter. But Frontenac (18-5) rallied with the aid of two 3-point field goals during a 9-2 run capped by Haley Wilson's triple from the top of the key with 1:35 to go that tied the score at 41-41.

Rienbolt put the Tigers ahead when she made the first two of her late-game free throws with 1:06 to go. They were earned on a foul away from the ball.

Rienbolt and Sidney Maycumber each scored 12 points for Fort Scott. Rienbolt also had 9 rebounds while Brianne Lawrence grabbed 7. Hannah Tourtillott handed out 3 assists.

Fort Scott's boys saw their post-season run come to an end with a 64-56 loss to top-seeded Anderson County (17-6). The Tigers (9-13), the tournament's No. 7 seed, led 18-16 after one period. But the Bulldogs opened the second quarter with an 11-0 run.

Fort Scott got within 59-54 with 1:28 to go with a Johnathan Stark 3-pointer off an Anderson County turnover.

A layup by Alex Fink brought the Tigers within 60-56 with 52 seconds left.

Kaleb DeLaTorre led the Tigers with 14 points. Eric Tastove scored 23 points for Anderson County and Spencer Walter added 10. Those two combined to make 14 of 23 field-goal attempts.

Greater detail and more photos will appear in Tuesday's edition of the Fort Scott Tribune.
