Tribune staff reports
Down 11-7 through one quarter Saturday at Borden, the Seymour girls basketball team rallied by outscoring the host Braves 21-12 in the second quarter en route to a 68-43 win.
“The first quarter, we were a little sluggish. The second, third and fourth quarters, we averaged 20 points per quarter,” Owls coach Jason Longmeier said. “We pressed the whole game. Our defense led to a lot of our points today.”
A big positive, Longmeier said, was balance in scoring. Sidney Carr led the way with 15, while Logan Personett had 12, Morgan Ritz 11 and Maci Lubker 10.
The Owls snapped a four-game skid, and they are 6-11 going into Tuesday’s Hoosier Hills Conference game at home against Jeffersonville.
Trinity Lutheran 55
South Decatur 49
The Trinity Lutheran girls missed several free throws and layups, but they were able to pull ahead by 11 points at halftime on their way to a 55-49 victory.
Cougars coach Mike Lang said the team missed 16 opportunities at the free-throw line (21 of 37) and eight or nine layups.
“All week long, we talked about pounding it and getting to the foul line and not settling for 3s,” Lang said.
Brianna Sons led Trinity with 16 points and eight rebounds, and Kyra Klosterman scored 12 points.
The Cougars are 7-7 going into tonight’s varsity-only game at Shawe Memorial.
