Owls outlast Olympians

The Seymour girls basketball team went on the road and came away with a big Hoosier Hills Conference win at Columbus East 54-51 on Thursday night.

Claire Marshall hit two free throws with 11 seconds left to give the Owls a three-point lead, and East couldn’t convert the game-tying 3-pointer as time expired.

Journee Brown led Seymour in scoring with 19 points on the night, and Kendall Sterling added 13 points. Marshall had eight points, none bigger than the two free throws at the end.

The Owls are now 11-5 this season and will be back in action on Saturday afternoon at North Harrison.

Brewer leads Trinity in win

After Brewer, Bailey Tabeling scored 17 points, Liza Froedge had 13, Madison Keith 10 and Laura Roeder four.

“Those four can go out and get a lot of points,” Trinity head coach Mike Lang said after the game. “Jo is a gamer.”
