Girls basketball

Seymour rallies to win

The Seymour girls basketball team had a huge final four minutes to rally back and defeat Rushville 53-46 on Thursday afternoon.

Seymour was down seven in the fourth quarter, but back-to-back 3-pointers from Grace Schrader and Brooke Trinkle pulled the Owls within one. After a Rushville basket, Trinkle hit another 3-pointer to tie the game. A big-time bucket by Schrader in the paint a few moments later gave Seymour a lead with under two minutes to play.

A pair of free throws by Kendall Sterling put Seymour up by five points with 40 seconds to play, and she hit two more with 14 seconds left to go up seven.

The Owls outscored the Lions 16-2 over the final four minutes to get the win.

Sterling led the team in scoring with 19 points, Schrader scored 13, Trinkle had 11, Journee Brown had seven and Greer Henry had three to round out the scoring.

Seymour, which has won three straight, is now 8-6 on the season and will play again Jan. 4 at home against Scottsburg.
