Lady Thunderbirds remain in SWIAC hunt

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Eastern Greene remained in the hunt to earn a share of the Southwestern Indiana Athletic Conference championship after a 56-48 victory over visiting North Central Saturday afternoon in a high school girls basketball game.

EGHS improved to 8-9 overall, 6-1 in the SWIAC. North Central slipped to 6-13, 2-5.

"It was good to get a win and remain in the battle for the conference, but we still need to put together four quarters," said Eastern Greene coach Zack Stevens.

Eastern Greene led 28-12 at the half.

"That's my team," said Stevens. "The way we played in the first half is the way we have been trying to play all season, at both ends.

"We rebounded well, defended and executed on offense. But we were unable to sustain that effort for four quarters. We are still working toward achieving that goal."

Alex DuBois paced the winners with 14 points. Amy Todd tossed in 11 points, Sierra New scored 10 and Brittany Martin added nine. Hannah Resler and Kim Arthur each added six points.

"It was good to see us have balanced scoring today," said Stevens. "We are starting to get a lot of contributions from a lot of different kids."

Katelynn Kennedy scored 13 points for North Central. Taylor Netherlain added 10 points.

EGHS won the junior varsity game 26-13.

Eastern Greene will play at Loogootee Tuesday and then host North Daviess Thursday in a game to decide who wins the conference title. WRV has a 7-1 mark while ND and Eastern Greene are both 6-1.
