COLUMBIA — After winning a game against Camdentonon Thursday with a final score of 66-60, the Hickman Kewpies girls basketball team advanced to the Class 5, District 9 final against Rock Bridge. However, this turned out to be a game they simply weren't prepared for.

On Saturday, the Rock Bridge Bruins defeated the Hickman Kewpies in the Class 5, District 9 championship with a score of 60-25. Although this means that the Bruins will get to go on to sectional play at 6 p.m. Wednesday in Camdenton, players said the best part of the game was how much fun they had with their defense against the Kewpies. Bruins guard Sophie Cunningham said it was "the best defense our whole team has played in a long time."

In boys basketball, Hickman rolled past Jefferson City 65-51 on Friday in the Class 5, District 9 championship to move on to the state tournament.

On Saturday, Fr. Tolton Regional Catholic High School lost its game against Canton. Ending the game with a score of 72-66 in Class 2 state quarterfinals, Tolton was one game away from qualifying for state. Michael Porter Jr., Tolton's freshman leading scorer, ended the game with 24 points.
