Owls grab first HHC win behind dynamic duo

The twin towers of Grace Meyer and Grace Schrader led the Seymour girls basketball team to a big win, 67-59, over Jennings County on Tuesday night.

Meyer scored 27 points and hauled in 10 rebounds, while Schrader had 24 points and nine rebounds to lead the Owls to their first Hoosier Hills Conference win of the season. 

Aidan Hiester added seven points for the Owls and was followed by Alyssa Perry’s four, Brooke Trinkle’s three and Jamya Miller’s two. 

The Owls locked down the victory over Jennings County with an impressive mark down the stretch at the free throw line. Seymour was a perfect 10-for-10 from the charity stripe to secure the win.

Braves take down No. 1 Salem

The Brownstown Central girls basketball team earned a big win over Class 3A No. 1 Salem, 54-50, on Tuesday night behind a 19-point second-quarter effort. 

Katherine Benter scored a team-high 19 points to lead the Braves to the promised land and was one of three players to score in double figures for the Braves. She was 3-for-4 from the 3-point line and a perfect 4 of 4 from the free-throw line. 

Freshman Maddy Hackman scored 16 points and was 4 of 6 from behind the arc.

Both Hackman and Benter shot 6-for-11 from the field.

Ashley Schroer scored 11, while Halle Hehman and Kelsey Wischmeier scored five and three, respectively. 

Hehman pulled down a team-best seven rebounds, while Emma Klinge dished up a team-high five assists. 

Cougars continue to dominate

Two huge efforts from Sydney Jaynes and Bailey Tabeling led the Class A No. 5 Trinity Lutheran girls basketball team to a dominating 68-39 win over South Ripley.

Tabeling and Jaynes would have beaten the Raiders on their own, as they combined for 57 of the Cougars’ point tally. Tabeling scored 30 and Jaynes dropped in 27 to pace the Cougars. 

Rounding out the scoring, Kailene Cockerham had five points, while Hannah Sabotin, Hannah Durham and Emma Schepman each chipped in two.
