Prep sports wrap: 12/11

From Herald Staff Reports

One local girls basketball player received an honor earlier before her team was scheduled to play tonight while three area swim teams were in action.

Here’s a brief rundown of Monday’s prep sports action.

Girls Basketball


Bulldogs 53, Raiders 51: The Southridge girls basketball team saw its three-game winning streak come to an end on the road as Evansville Bosse was able to squeak out a narrow two-point victory.

The Raider loss came just hours after freshman guard/forward Myah Montgomery was selected as the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association District 3 girls player of the week. Montgomery averaged 32 points and 4.5 rebounds in two wins for the Raiders last week including a 38-point outpouring in an overtime victory over Pike Central.

On Monday, the Raiders nearly stretched their winning streak to four games but couldn’t quite get past Bosse. Individual statistics were not reported from this game.
