Kenton Ridge girls trip Tipp


All-around scoring and an early lead helped Kenton Ridge to a 61-55 girls basketball win over Tippecanoe on Saturday.

Kenton Ridge began the game with a 17-6 first-quarter run. From there the Cougars held the lead and held off Tipp. The teams were tied for second place in the Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division prior to the game.

“The key was we got out ahead of them,” Kenton Ridge coach Ed Foulk said.

Kenton Ridge lost to Tipp 80-73 on Jan. 5. Halee Printz led the Red Devils with 31 points. Saturday, Kenton Ridge made Printz a point of emphasis and held her to five.

Sydney Bates led Kenton Ridge with 13 points, seven rebounds. Stefanie Davis scored 12 while Paige McCrary had 11. Sara Thornton scored 10.

Carly Clodfelter led Tipp with 17. Erica Comer scored 12.

The teams split the regular season battles — now comes the playoffs. They may meet again.

“I wanted this win to give us a little more initiative for tournament time,” Foulk said. “We may play them again, hopefully we’ll get that far and have another showdown in two weeks.”

Ben Logan 37, Indian Lake 16: Jessica Yoder had 16 points, nine rebounds to lead Ben Logan. Ciarra Wirick had seven points, four rebounds and three steals.

Boys basketball

Madison 63, Cedarville 32: Cedarville was held to 13 points in the second half.
