The uplifting victory also signaled the fourth win in the past five games for the Lady Chargers.

North led 12-8 after the first quarter, and 23-15 at the half.

Eight different players, including all six seniors, scored in the third quarter to give North a 42-22 lead at the third stop.

North hosts Switzerland County (4-4), a potential sectional opponent, Saturday afternoon.

Lady Cougars post comeback win

The South Decatur girls basketball team trailed by nine points late in the third quarter, but the Lady Cougars roared back to post a 55-49 win over host Morristown.

Despite multiple starters with four fouls in the fourth quarter, the Cougars made clutch shots and secured the ball down the stretch. South outscored the Yellow Jackets 15-6 in the fourth quarter.

South improves to 4-5 overall and 2-3 in the Mid-Hoosier Conference, its second straight MHC win.
