From Herald Staff Reports

After snow fell throughout the day, there were three-pointers and baskets falling for three local girls basketball teams on Thursday evening.

Here’s a brief rundown of Thursday’s girls basketball action.

Huskies 47, Wildcats 26: It was sort of an off-night for the Jasper girls basketball team as they struggled to make shots from the field, finishing 9-of-44 in the road loss to Evansville North on Thursday.

North jumped out to a 14-4 lead after the first quarter but led just 20-12 at the halftime break. However, the Huskies used a 27-14 advantage in the second half to pull away for the victory.

Kortney Ruhe led Jasper with 11 points while Meredith Hilgefort added five and Claire Knies finished with four while Ruhe and Knies both added six rebounds. Kenna Hisle led North with 14 points while Arieona Garrett had 13 rebounds.


Rangers 52, Commodores 43: After a stretch that saw three straight losses, Forest Park bounced back with a road victory over Perry Central on Thursday.

Perry Central held a narrow 21-20 lead at the halftime break but outscored the Commodores 18-10 in the third quarter and 14-12 in the fourth quarter en route to the victory.

Macie Zink led the Ranger with 17 points while Ali Welp added 15 points. Bree Noland led Perry Central in scoring with 18 points.

Bulldogs 58, Jeeps 37: Northeast Dubois’ tough start to the season continued on Thursday as they fell on the road to Orleans.

The Jeeps pulled ahead early as they led 12-6 after the first quarter but the Bulldogs took a 24-18 lead into the halftime break. Orleans used strong third and fourth quarters (16 and 18 points) to pull away for the victory.

Madison Cave led the Jeeps with 16 points while Hadley Fuhrman added six.
