Seniors and underclassmen for coach Zane White’s Lady Tigers have never experienced a loss in this tournament and, for this season, have yet to lose. The Orange and Black now stands 18-0, the best start in program history.

Coach Mark Boggs’ Lady Pacers had an early 4-0 advantage, but the Tigers took over the lead at 6-4 and never gave it back.  At the end of the first eight minutes, the Burg led 18-11.  Tristyn Dennis’ two triples and a trio of field goals by Juliana Kemper led LHS. Aleiah Thomas also scored six for the Swiss.

The Tigers enhanced their favorable point spread to 13 at multiple points in the second period, including the 31-18 score shown on the board at halftime.  Dennis added five more points while Kristen Cross and Kristin Roark both chipped in four.  Kyah Chase sank a three ball and two charity tosses for five Pacer points.

Early in the third, the Tigers doubled up the Vevay ladies, 36-18, but Switz used the long ball to get back within 11 by quarter’s end, 45-34.  Three-point shots by Maddie and Jessie Duvall, Josie Meyer and Thomas all aided in the effort.  Dennis scored five more for Lawrenceburg which included her fourth trifecta of the game.

Switzerland County continued to scrap in the fourth quarter and drew as close as four, 48-44, but Lawrenceburg made six of the game’s final eight points to secure the 2020 title, 54-46.

Good three-point shooting (7/18) and decent free throw shooting (11/17) kept the Pacers in the game, but Lawrenceburg’s rebounding edge (33-24) helped lead to a 12-4 advantage in second chance points and 13 more field goal opportunities which ultimately decided the game.

Our Southeastern Indiana REMC Power Players of the Game were Lawrenceburg’s Tristyn Dennis and Juliana Kemper.  Dennis scored a game-high 18 points with two steals.  Kemper was close to a triple double with 13 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists.

Also of for the Tigers, Kierah Lowe logged seven points and six rebounds. For the Pacers, Aleiah Thomas and Kyah Chase both scored 11 points.  Thomas added eight rebounds and three steals.  Chase made all six of her free throws. Josie Meyer scored nine, converting all three of her three-point shots, and had four boards.
