The Batesville High School junior varsity basketball team was impressive in a 47-22 victory over South Ripley in the championship game of the Ripley County tournament on Saturday.

The Bulldogs set the tone with a quick start in the first quarter.

Freshman Garrett Burkhart sparked the Bulldogs with 11 first quarter points, including a trio of 3-pointers.

Evan Blanken gave the Bulldogs a needed lift at the offensive end in the second half. The junior center scored eight of the team’s 17 points over the final two quarters.
