GIRLS' HOOPS: Hornets win fifth straight, 63-20 over Crothersville

HENRYVILLE — Henryville won its fifth straight game and its second straight Southern Athletic Conference contest, 63-20 over Crothersville on Wednesday.

Since opening 3-0 then dropping six straight, the Hornets won three close games then blew out Rock Creek and Crothersville in back-to-back outings.

On Wednesday, they held the Tigers to 20 points, including a shutout in the third quarter.

“Our team played well tonight on both sides of the basketball,” Henryville coach Josh Conrad said. “After the first two minutes of the game, our defense got a lot better mainly, because we were more active.”

On offense, freshman Emily Hollis scored 20 points and hit four 3-point shots. Nine different Hornets contributed to the scoring column, including 11 from Emma Hendricks, nine from Jasmine Harrell and eight more from Haley Huddleston.

“We feel like we are building some depth,” Conrad said. “We saw a ton of positives and had all the girls contribute positively.”

The Hornets will go for six straight when they visit Southwestern in Hanover on Jan. 10. That game is followed by home contests against Christian Academy (Jan. 15) and an SAC contest against Borden (Jan. 17).
