Video: Miraculous finish to Hanover's first state title
Watch freshman Tianna Lohse hit her team's biggest shot of the year.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try, try, try and try again.
That was the attitude of Hanover (Kan.)
freshman Tianna Lohse
, who made her first 3-pointer of the game — at the buzzer after six misses — in a 50-47 win over Olpe in the Kansas Class 1A state title game Saturday in Hays.
Lohse's first make coincided with Hanover's first state title.
"I had no idea (it was going in)," Lohse told Topeka Capital-Journal
reporter Nick Schwien after the game. "I was just hoping to get it and shoot it."
She did and it made coach Chris Beikmann look good. He was exalting Lohse to keep shooting even after her cold start. He said Lohse was one of the team's best long-range shooters all season.
She finished with just four points, while teammate Macy Doebele
led the way with 14 points and Ashton Jueneman
had 12 points.
