In the first quarter, Hornets senior Carley McCammon got her team rolling offensively by scoring seven of Medora’s nine points.

West Washington attacked the post early and took a 21-9 lead going into the second quarter behind four points by Ryana Watson, Sydnee Moon and Hattie Griffitts.

McCammon hit a 3-pointer to open the second quarter, but West Washington responded by going on a 17-0 run, including eight points by Watson.

Elexus Morris added a free throw for Medora’s total, but the Hornets trailed 43-13 at halftime.

“We knew coming in that they were a lot stronger with their inside game,” Hornets coach Brad McCammon said. “We were just trying to slow the game down to create offense. We wanted to get penetration with Carley and Kailen (Flynn). We held them down a bit more this time.”

The Senators built a 62-20 lead until McCammon hit a pair of free throws and Flynn hit a 3-pointer to close the third quarter.

Flynn hit a 3-pointer to start the fourth quarter, but the hole was too deep for the Hornets, as they concluded their season at 2-22.

McCammon led the Hornets with 21 points, and Watson had 23 for the Senators.

Crothersville will face West Washington in the semifinals on Friday.

The Hornets will lose seniors Jadelyn Dean, McCammon and Tara Richey.

“I hate it for our seniors,” Brad McCammon said. “Carley had a heck of a ballgame, and Jadelyn will be missed. We were led by the seniors. This was their last chance to play basketball.

“I’m lucky to have the honor to have coached my daughter for two years. All our kids gave it everything they had, and we lost to a very good team. I’m proud of them.”
