Seymour loses close game to Scottsburg

The Seymour girls basketball team hosted Scottsburg on Tuesday night for the Owls’ senior night, honoring their four seniors — Grace Schrader, Kendrick Sterling, Eliza Cash and Kaylee Waskom.

It was a close game, and Seymour had a chance for a game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer, but the shot didn’t fall and Scottsburg won the ball game 46-43.

Seymour led 36-22 midway through the third quarter, but Scottsburg ended the game on a 24-7 run to come away with the victory.

Head coach Jason Longmeier said on the radio after the game that there hasn’t been a game this season where Seymour felt like they let it slip away and should’ve won, but Tuesday night was the first time the team felt that way.

Grace Schrader led Seymour in scoring with 16 points, Kendall Sterling and Brooke Trinkle each scored nine, and Journee Brown, Kendrick Sterling and Greer Henry all put in three points.

The Owls, now 8-7 this season, will play at home again on Thursday night against Columbus East.

Much like Seymour, the Brownstown girls team also had a close loss, this one coming from a team from the Hoosier Hills Conference.

Madison left The Pit at Brownstown with a 44-41 victory on Tuesday night.

The Braves, now 9-9 this season, will play again on Saturday at home against Charlestown starting at 1:30 p.m.
