Lady Chargers fall to Braves

Greensburg — The North Decatur girls varsity basketball team returned to the court for the first time since Dec. 15 Saturday, hosting first-place Indian Creek.

The Lady Chargers saw first-hand why the visiting Lady Braves lead the Mid-Hoosier Conference, falling 63-29.

North, now 6-6 overall and 2-1 in the MHC, fell behind 30-6 after the first eight minutes. Indian Creek built a 41-16 halftime lead on the strength of 18 points apiece from seniors Ally Lehman and Brooke Mathena. Lehman scored 14 in the first quarter alone. North senior Jenna Meyer led her team with eight at the half. Junior Abby Lamb had five, including a 3-pointer to start the second-quarter scoring.

Creek outscored North 9-4 in the third quarter. Highlighting the fourth quarter was a triple by North junior Andrea Volk, a Meyer jumper and a score by senior Cindy Krieger to conclude the Chargers’ scoring.

Meyer finished with 12 points on the day. Volk and Lamb each scored five, including a 3-ball each. Krieger scored four in her first action in nine games after sitting out with an injury.

Junior Anna Wallpe added three.

North JV girls beat Braves

The North girls junior varsity squad defeated Indian Creek in the first game, 34-27. Junior Alison Wallpe scored a game-high 20 points. Sam Krieger followed with six, while Morgan McKinney added four. Laura Haunert scored three and Megan Hoover chipped in one.

The Lady Chargers host Morristown Tuesday (tonight). The varsity game starts at 6 p.m. because Morristown does not have a junior varsity team.
