Senior Sam Bies finished fourth in the 152-pound class, and the crown jewel of the day was once again sophomore Ashton Schuetter, who won the regional championship in the 195-pound class.

Jeffersonville 68, Southridge 40: The Raiders (8-12) dropped their third consecutive game and are 1-6 in their last seven. Senior Garrett Voegerl fouled out, but not before leading the team with 17 points. He was the only player with double digits for Southridge. The Raiders made all four of their free throw attempts.

Southridge will be back Feb. 15 at home against Pocket Athletic Conference rival Tell City.

Barr-Reeve 52, Northeast Dubois 44: Tough times continue for the Jeeps (11-8) who have suddenly lost four in a row after previously having a five-game win streak. Seniors Ethan Ziegler and Reece Bauer scored 15 and 14 points, respectively. However, this did not suffice. Northeast Dubois scored a mere two points in the third quarter.

The Jeeps return to action Tuesday at North Daviess.
