Lady Indians fall to Washington


     The Hillsboro Lady Indians dropped their South Central Ohio League contest Saturday night, as they were defeated by the Washington Lady Blue Lions 56-29 at Hillsboro High School.

     Washington led after the first quarter 11-9, and then held the Lady Indians (0-3, 0-6) to four points in the second quarter, while scoring 17, for a 28-13 halftime lead.

     Hillsboro’s offensive struggles continued in the second half, netting a total of 16 points, scoring 10 in the third quarter. WSHS scored 14 points in each of the final two quarters.

     HHS was led by senior Shelby Coyle with eight points. Coyle made two 3-pointers. Jenni Willey made three shots from the floor for six points. Lady Indian senior Megan Barnes netted five points, making one 3-point shot.

     “I thought Jenni Willey had her best game of the year,” Hillsboro head coach Herb Mihalik. “She scored the first six points we had in the game and played good defense on Washington post player Robinson.”

     Morgan Price and Heather Storer each scored four points for HHS. A.J Sanders was 2 of 2 from the foul line for two points.

     HHS was 4 of 8 from the free-throw line, WSHS was 6 of 8.

     Frazier led all scorers with 11 points for the Lady Blue Lions. Frazier made four two-point baskets and one 3-pointer.

     Morritt and Robinson each scored 10 for WSHS. Robinson was 4 of 4 from the free-throw line. Knisley finished with eight points.

     Pendergraft and Chrisman each had six points for the Lady Blue Lions. Shaw made a 3-pointer for WSHS to finish with three points. Stauhler had two points.

     “You can not win games when you continue to have over 20 turnovers in a game, and shot 20 percent from 3-pointer, 36 percent from two-point and only 50 percent from the foul line,” Mihalik said.

     HHS will play again Friday, Dec. 18 against the Miami Trace Lady Panthers at MTHS.
