The Batesville High School girls varsity basketball team needed less than 24 hours rest to knock off the Lawrenceburg Lady Tigers on Saturday afternoon.

Batesville led at each of the first three quarter breaks with the largest margin coming at the end of the third. The Lady Bulldogs extended a 29-16 halftime lead to 49-30 entering the final eight minutes.

One night earlier, the Lady Bulldogs suffered a 69-46 loss at East Central.

It was going as planned for coach Cox early in the game. Batesville took an 11-9 lead into the second quarter.

Then the Lady Trojans began to find some holes in the plan. East Central outscored the Lady Bulldogs 22-10 in the second quarter and took a 10 point lead at halftime.

The third quarter was much like the second. The Lady Trojans tallied 23 points as the margin grew to 54-35.

Baumer gave the Lady Bulldogs a lift with 16 points,10 rebounds and six assists. Rupp added 12 points and six rebounds.

Eleven different Lady Trojans scored in the game. Brooke Packer led the way with 21 points. Allie McCool was second on the team with 10 points followed by Kelsey Tippitt with nine.
