Barr-Reeve Lady Vikings defeat Springs Valley to move to 18-1
By Louie Kavanaugh Jr.
   Barr-Reeve Lady Vikings struggled early in the first quarter with the Blackhawks, but once they got moving there was no stopping them. The Vikings held an 8-5 lead when Liz Horton went to the free throw line and hit for two free throws and that started a 13-4 run that put the Vikings up 21-19 after one quarter. Liz Horton hit two 3-pointers and two free throws in the quarter for 8 points and Hilliary Fox connected for 6. The Vikings continued to pull away as they extended their lead at halftime to 41-19 as they outscored Springs Valley in the second quarter 20-10. During the third quarter, the Vikings continued to pull away as they led 60-29 after three and won by a final count of 73-35.  
   Barr-Reeve hit ten 3’s on the night as five different players connected from behind the arc. Liz Horton led the Vikings with 20 points on four 3-pointers and 6-6 from the line. Two other players were also in double figures as Tya Harmon scored 15 on three 3-pointers and Hilliary Fox scored 12 points. Lindsey Graber and Morganne Doyle each scored nine points, Audrey Blair and Kayti Taylor had three points each, and Kylee O’Connor had two.  
   After the game Coach Mark Holt was pleased with his team’s effort and said, “When you have 5 different players hit ten 3-pointers that is hard to defend. We had a good inside/outside game tonight and the girls worked the ball well to get someone open.” When asked about how well BR did against Valley he said, “Valley is not a bad team, they played well, but we had a good night on both sides of the ball tonight. We tried several different defenses and some presses tonight getting ready for sectional.” When asked about playing Loogootee in the first game of the sectional, Holt remarked, “We definitely will have to be on top of our game. We are trying to get our team adjusted to playing without Terrell (Miller) and I think Audrey Blair and Tya Harmon have done a good job of filling in. We definitely miss Terrell, but we have to go on and we have some games before sectional to make that adjustment. Hopefully we will be ready.”
  The Vikings were 11-15 from the line while Valley was 3-5. The Vikings hit 49 percent from the field to Valley’s 40 and the Vikings out re-bounded the Blackhawks 28-18. The Vikings turned the ball over 10 times to Valley’s 20. There was no junior varsity contest as Valley does not have a girls’ junior varsity team.
