Seymour’s Sterling, Trinkle earn HHC honors


The Hoosier Hills Conference released its honors for the 2021-22 girls basketball season, which was voted on by league coaches, and Seymour had two individuals make the list.

Kendall Sterling made HHC first team, and Brooke Trinkle earned HHC honorable mention.

Sterling averaged 13.5 points per game to lead Seymour on the season as the Owls finished 2-3 overall in the HHC to place sixth in the conference.

Sterling’s highest point total of the season was 21 points.

As for Trinkle, she averaged 12 points per game this season, totaling as high as 19 in a game this year.

Both players contributed vital roles that resulted in Seymour (11-11) winning its first sectional game in 10 seasons as the Owls defeated New Albany 59-47 on Feb. 1.

Trinkle scored 15 points in that winning postseason effort, while Sterling netted 10.

The Owls’ season came to a close against a rock-solid Jennings County team in the sectional semifinal, a game in which Seymour was tied with the Panthers at halftime.

Seymour will have both of these HHC honorees back for next season, and the Owls look to build off the momentum from this season.
