Senior guard Maggie Gilstrap became the all-time steals leader in Henryville girls’ basketball history on Thursday, as the Hornets defeated Rock Creek Christian Academy at Spurgeon Gymnasium, 62-36. It was Senior Night at Henryville.

Gilstrap made four steals to give her 283 in her career, surpassing former record holder Alicia Hatter who had 281. Gilstrap also scored a team-high 19 points and shared team-high assist honors with Katie Guernsey with four.

Hornet senior Erin Mohler tallied 14 points, and teammate Katie Spellman had nine points and a team-high seven rebounds.

Leading 23-19 at halftime, Henryville (14-7) outscored the Lions 25-10 in the third quarter to go up by 19 points. Gilstrap and Mohler combined to score 23 of the 25 points in the stanza.

“They just took over the game,” Henryville head coach Brian Guernsey said. “We started slow. We’re fighting through injuries and the flu, but I think we’re getting past that.”

Freshman Rachael Gary was the only Rock Creek player in double figures, scoring a game-high 20 points.

Both teams will play in the first round of the Class A Henryville Sectional next week. The Hornets will face Lanesville on Wednesday, while the Lions (3-17) will play eighth-ranked South Central on Tuesday.
