Seymour goes to 4-0

GREENWOOD — The Seymour girls basketball team continued its hot start to the season as the Owls went on the road and defeated Greenwood 61-33 on Saturday afternoon.

Seymour shot 64.1% from the floor en route to its dominating victory, including making 4-of-8 3-pointers.

“It helps when you make shots,” head coach Jason Longmeier said. “We set the tone defensively, and when you see some shots fall, your confidence only goes up from there. I thought this was our best all-around game this season.”

Kendall Sterling led the Owls in scoring with 20 points, followed by Brooke Trinkle with 14 points, Lainey Jackson scored seven, Journee Brown had six, Elizabeth Kirby six, Greer Henry four, Jaidyn Nichols had two and Sophie Skidmore had two.

The Owls are now 4-0 this season, which is the program’s best start to a year since 2015. Seymour will next play on Friday night at Batesville with JV starting at 6 p.m. and varsity to follow around 7:30 p.m.

Seymour’s JV team is also 4-0 after beating Greenwood 30-24. Emmy Followell scored 11 points, Skidmore had eight, Abby Otte six, Claire Skaggs had three and Jada Miller had two.

“We’ve got to get some things right, but hey, we can get them right off a winning note, right?” Longmeier said. “Our program is definitely going in the right direction right now.”

PAOLI — The Brownstown Central girls basketball team needed more than four quarters to decide a winner when the Braves traveled to Paoli on Saturday night.

After taking a 9-3 lead after the first quarter, Paoli outscored Brownstown 26-15 over the next two quarters, and the Rams led 29-24 heading into the fourth quarter.

Brownstown battled back, and the game went into overtime tied at 35. It was the Braves who were able to prevail in the extra period, winning the game 43-40.

Kalee Borden led Brownstown in scoring with 11 points, and Maddy Hackman scored 10. Jenna Klosterman added eight, Camryn Thompson scored six, Kelsey Schneider had five and Harley Toppe had three.

Borden also had five assists and seven rebounds, and Hackman and Schneider each had five boards.
