From Herald Staff Reports
The Forest Park boys basketball team hit the road for a non-conference battle while one local girls basketball player was honored as one of the top seniors in the state of Indiana.
Here’s Tuesday’s prep sports rundown.
Rangers 55, Pioneers 46: After a tough PAC loss last Friday to Heritage Hills, the Forest Park boys basketball team bounced back with a road victory over Boonville on Tuesday evening.
The Rangers came out of the gate with a fiery intensity as they held the Pioneers to just two first quarter points and went into the halftime break ahead 20-14.
The Pioneers had a 17-10 advantage in the third quarter to take a 31-30 lead into the final quarter but Forest Park wouldn’t goa way easily.
Drew Howard’s three-point shot early in the quarter made it 37-36 Rangers and they’d never surrender the lead from there, scoring 25 points in the quarter to seal the deal.
Curt Hopf led the Rangers with a 19-point, 16-rebound performance while Drew Howard added 14 points. Simon Jacob also added nine points and 12 rebounds.
Southridge’s Neukam honored: Raider senior basketball player Mady Neukam was selected as one of the honorees for the Hoosier Basketball Magazine’s top senior girls basketball players in the state of Indiana.
Neukam has the potential to be one of the 60 players selected to compete in the Hoosier Basketball Magazine’s 38th annual Top 60 senior girls workout which is held at the University of Indianapolis.
She finished her high school career as the seventh leading scorer in the area as she averaged 10.5 points per game, scoring a total of 230 points during her senior season.
