Second half better than first

BATESVILLE — It was a delayed start to the season for the Batesville High School girls varsity basketball team.

After their opener against Lawrenceburg was postponed, the Lady Bulldogs kicked off the season with Seymour on Tuesday.

The Lady Owls got out to a fast start and established an early lead which they were able to turn into a 57-46 victory.

The Lady Bulldogs trailed 17-7 at the end of the first quarter and later 36-18 at halftime.

Typical of a Matt Maple coached squad, the Lady Bulldogs did not give up.

Batesville went on to outscore the Lady Owls 15-9 in the third quarter and 13-12 in the fourth.

Unfortunately, the Seymour lead was too great to overcome.

"The first half was a little sluggish," Maple commented. "I was very pleased with the second half effort.

"This is a solid Seymour team and we were able to outscore them in the second half," he added.

In addition to a rejuvenated defensive effort, the Lady Bulldogs cut their turnovers in half from 14 in the first half to only seven in the second. This allowed Seymour fewer extra opportunities to score.

The Lady Bulldogs shot just 18-of-55 from the field for 32 percent and 9-of-17 from the free throw line. These numbers should improve as the season progresses.

Bailey Baumer and Brooke Rohlfing carried most of the load offensively for the Maple’s bunch. Baumer finished with a game-high 16 points, while Rohlfing added 11. Rohlfing led the team with seven rebounds and four steals.

BHS loses junior varsity contest

The Lady Bulldogs suffered a 40-22 loss to Seymour in the junior varsity contest.

The game was close for the first six minutes before the Lady Owls outscored Batesville 10-2 in the second to take a 17-8 lead into intermission.

Again, the Lady Bulldogs played nearly even with Seymour in the third only to let it slip away in the fourth. Seymour took a 30-18 lead into the final quarter.

Samantha Heidlage and Kelli Hartman led BHS offensively with six points each. Shelby Rupp was next in line with four.

Rupp grabbed a team-high five bounds followed by Kelsey Gausman and Tara Prickel with four apiece.
