Lady Lions finish final week 3-0

Coach Marlow wins No. 200

With three games in the final week of the regular season, the Lady Lions looked like they are ready for the postseason – winning all three by an average of 30 points per contest.

The Lady Lions defeated Franklin County 63-24, New Castle 76-51 and South Dearborn 70-43 and in the process gave head coach Melissa Marlow her 200th career victory. Marlow is now 201-123 in her 14th year as the head coach of the Lady Lions.

The Lady Lions capped the week by defeating South Dearborn and earning the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference title. The Lady Lions went 7-0 in the EIAC with East Central second at 6-1 and Connersville third at 5-2.

Against the Lady Knights, the Lady Lion took the early lead on a bucket by Mackenzie Campbell and free throw by Casey Yager. The Lady Lions never trailed in the game. After a South Dearborn bucket by Kooper Vertz, the Lady Lions got a 3-pointer from Makayla Herbert and free throw from Keragan Niehoff. South Dearborn tied the game at 11 on a 3-pointer by Morgan Wolfer, but the Lady Lions closed the first quarter on a 9-0 run. Five points from Kaitlyn Howe and a conventional three point play by Niehoff had the lead at 19-11.

Rushville extended the lead to 16 points on two occasions – on a traditional three point play by Herbert and 3-pointer from Brooke Ash. South Dearborn closed to within 12 at the half, trailing 38-26.

The Lady Lions did not let up in the third quarter – opening the second half with the first six points. Kelsi Ash’s bucket had the lead at 44-26. The lead ballooned to 21 on a bucket by Niehoff. South Dearborn made a little run in the late portion of the third, but a 3-pointer from Campbell made it 54-35 heading to the fourth.

Back-to-back 3-pointers by Herbert and Campbell opened the fourth and put the game away. Rushville outscored the Lady Knights 16-8 in the fourth to cruise to the victory and the EIAC title.
