(webcast) Rushville 47, Lawrenceburg 26- 3A-29 Championship

Rushville- Rushville added to its state-record girls’ basketball sectional championship total, earning its 32nd title Saturday in Memorial Gym, with a 47-26 victory over Lawrenceburg.

This game was part of our St. Elizabeth Healthcare Basketball Webcast Schedule and can be seen again on the IHSAA Champions Network.  The IHSAA charges a $10 fee for all tournament webcasts.

Coach Melissa Marlow’s Lions had to defeat two teams on back-to-back nights which both handed her club a conference loss in December.  Rushville did just that taking out Greensburg and Lawrenceburg to claim the 3A-29 crown for the first time since 2017.

For Lawrenceburg coach Zane White, he didn’t have his same Tiger team in Saturday’s finals which had defeated Rushville 50-38 on December 19.  Five LHS players were out of action for the championship. Three of which, Kirsten Cross, Kristin Roark and Kyah Chase, had accounted for 33 points, 21 rebounds and seven steals during their December victory.

But credit the Lady Lions who played three masterful games defensively.  They used speed, athleticism and heart to overcome their lack of size and hustled their way to a sectional championship.

Rushville scored the game’s first 13 points and led 20-5 at the end of the first quarter. Briley Munchel posted 10 points and Belle Gossett followed with eight as each Lion hit a pair of 3-pointers.  Lizzie Redar accounted for all five points for the Tigers.

While the scoring was lighter in the second period for Rushville, the Lions still added to their lead which was 32-10 at the break.  Olivia Yager netted eight points for the hosts which included a 3-ball and a 3-point play.  Redar, again, was the only player who scored for LHS and had all 10 of the team’s points at intermission.

Story continues.
