Prep sports wrap: 1/4January 3, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
A career-night from a Heritage Hills sophomore girls basketball player and some solid swim times were among Thursday night’s prep sports highlights.
Here’s a brief rundown of what you might have missed.
Warriors 43, Raiders 32: It was a strong start on Thursday night for the Southridge girls basketball team but a big fourth quarter from North Knox helped the Warriors pull away late for the victory.
Southridge and North Knox were tied at 15-all after the first quarter and the Raiders trailed by just three points at the halftime break. However, North Knox’s strong free-throw shooting on the night (19-of-21, 90 percent) and their 12-4 advantage in the fourth quarter helped lead them to victory.
Myah Montgomery led Southridge with eight points while Mady Neukam and Kennedy Nalley both finished with seven points each.
Patriots 52, Rebels 38: Rebekah Gordon has had her fair share of solid games throughout her first two years with the Heritage Hills girls basketball team but Thursday night might have been her best one yet.
Gordon finished with a career-high 27 points (12-of-18 shooting) and nine rebounds in the Patriots home conference victory over South Spencer.
The Patriots led 22-14 at the halftime break and never looked back as they outscored South Spencer in every single quarter.
Avery Neff added 10 points for the Pats in the victory.
Jeeps split meet with Rebels: The Northeast Dubois boys and girls swim teams traveled to Rockport to battle South Spencer. The Jeep boys were victorious 100-47 but the girls were defeated by the Rebels 132-37.
First place finishers for the boys were Cole Tretter (200 freestyle), Colby Stafford (200 individual medley, 100 butterfly), Carter Beckman (50 freestyle), Trenton Harrison (500 freestyle), Preston Brinkman (100 backstroke) and the 200 medley relay (Harrison, Beckman, Stafford, Brinkman) and 400 freestyle (Harrison, Brinkman, Tretter, Stafford) relay teams.
The lone first place finisher for the Jeep girls was Anna Schnell who placed first in the 100 freestyle with a time of 1:08.43. Schnell was also second in the 200 freestyle (2:31.28).
