North junior high girls compete in MHC

The North Decatur junior high girls basketball teams concluded the seasons in the Mid-Hoosier Conference tournament last week. The eighth graders advanced to the final four of the tournament.

North 7th girls fall to Hauser in MHC

The 7th grade Lady Chargers ended their season last Wednesday by losing to the Hauser Lady Jets in the opening round of the MHC Tournament. North struggled to score in the first half and found themselves trailing 21-4 in the first half.

Spurred on by a rousing halftime speech, the Lady Chargers rallied only to fall short by four points, 37-33. The Lady Chargers were led in scoring by Maddy Day who scored a career-high 19 points (17 of those in the second half). Katie Kinker and Brittany Becker each added six points. Bekak Netherton ended the scoring with two. The 7th graders finished their season with a record of 4-5.

“I want to thank Bill Pratt and Blair Land who helped Nathan (Osting) and myself coach throughout the season,” said coach Julie Record. “They often worked with the girls ‘one-on-one’ on their skills at practices. Their individual attention really helped our young ballplayers.”

North 8th girls advance to Final Four

The 8th grade Lady Chargers advanced to the Final Four of the Mid-Hoosier Conference Junior High Girls Basketball Tournament held on Saturday, March 8th at Indian Creek. North’s 8th grade were victorious over Hauser and Southwestern Shelby during the week to qualify for Saturday’s games. North first beat the Hauser Lady Jets 42-16.

Saturday morning, the 8th grade Lady Chargers were beaten soundly by host Indian 43-29. Day led her team in scoring with nine points and Bohman scored seven. Howell and Dougherty added two each. North’s eighth grade team finished the season with 7-4.

“I am so proud of how far these girls have come from last year. What they did in the “off season” paid big dividends,” said coach Nathan Osting.
