— Ottawa High, ranked No. 1 in Class 4A, had a few first-game jitters but lost them quickly in a season-opening 94-38 girls basketball romp over Kansas City Piper on Friday.

"I didn't know how we would react," OHS coach Cliff McCullough said of the rankings. "It took us a couple of minutes to settle in and then we kind of took over. We ran and ran. I thought we were a litle fatigued in the first half, but we have to run against teams."

The Cyclones led 43-20 at halftime and outscored KC Piper, 31-7, in the third quarter.

"We tried to come out after halftime and put the game away," McCullough said, "because we've had problems with letdowns in the third quarter."

Four Cyclones scored in double figures, led by Lindsey Dieterich's 26 points.

"It was nice to have four of our five starters in double figures," McCullough said, "and Katie (Sheffield) had nine, so we were right there, and if we get that kind of blance we should be all right."
