Cats quell Raiders

From Herald Staff Reports

With any young team, progress can arrive in many forms. A gritty overtime win one night, a humbling from one of the state’s best the next.


Tuesday, the Southridge girls basketball team received the latter, accepting a 55-25 loss to Class 3A No. 2 Evansville Mater Dei at Huntingburg Memorial Gym three days after its two-point squeaker past county rival Jasper.

The Raiders (1-2) remained within seven points of the Mater Dei (1-0) at halftime before the Wildcats surged past Southridge 34-11 following the break, when Indiana University commit Maura Muensterman deposited 14 of her game-high 24 points.

Aubrey Main guided the Raiders with a team-high 11 points, including six during the final quarter, and Kayla Voegerl chipped in seven points.

Southridge will conclude its season-opening four-game homestand Friday night when Evansville Bosse (2-1) visits Huntingburg.
