It was a good night to be a Lady Indians fan.

Monday, Feb. 17 was Senior Night for the Lady Indians and they celebrated by trouncing the visiting Eldon Lady Mustangs.

The junior varsity Lady Indians won 51-37 and the varsity squad won 87-68.

The Lady Indians took the lead early in the varsity contest, and after fighting off some first-quarter surges, kept it for the rest of the night.

The Ladies go on the board early with a Hope Crane free-throw, followed by back-to-back three point shots by Malory Kabbage, then Emily Leer to make it 8-2 Hallsville.

Though Eldon pulled closer they never got close enough.

The first quarter ended 17-14, Hallsville and by the half, the Lady Indians were up 37-31.

By the third quarter’s end they were 17 points ahead of Eldon, 63-46.

The Lady Indians finished them off 87-68.

Avery Oetting led Hallsville with 23 points, followed by Leer with 12 and Lauren Proctor with 10.

Freshman Haley Henderson led Eldon with a game-high 26-points.

“Yes, she was on our radar,” Lady Indians Head Coach Matt Heet said afterward. “We had seen film, and did a pretty good job of covering her after the first, but I think the girls were taken off guard by her aggressiveness.”

He said a fast paced, uptempo game worked in Hallsville’s favor that night. “Tonight we were able to play fast and execute. It is not often we score in the 80s… Tis was a good night. The seniors all scored and we won their senior night.”

As the regular season nears its end, the Lady Indians are 14-10.
