TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Topeka High School’s girl’s basketball team is off to a red hot start, winning 11 straight games without dropping one single loss on the season.

They haven’t been on this scorching hot start by accident. They have won with dominance every game. Topeka High has won by an average margin of 36 points per game. Topeka has also averaged 13.7 steals per game and the opposing teams have found it more than difficult to keep the ball on their court throughout the season.

The Trojans are 1st in the Centennial District and are ranked in the Top 10 in the state.

The Girls will face Seaman High on February 4th and will defend their 1st place ranking along with the undefeated streak.
