   On Saturday, January 16, the Barr-Reeve Lady Vikings beat the Forest Park Lady Rangers by a score of 60-45 to improve their record to 14-0. Three players reached double digits in the rout of the Forest Park (12-4) team. Liz Horton paced the Vikes with 18 points. Hilliary Fox got another double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds. Barr-Reeve shot an impressive 56 percent from the floor as a team and also won the rebound battle, 27-25. Barr-Reeve was playing for the first full game without their starting guard Terrell Miller who will be out for the season with a knee injury. Miller was averaging 10 points a game and was recognized prior to the starting line-ups in the Barr-Reeve game.  
   The Lady Vikings had the Rangers outscored at every quarter break and also put up more points in every quarter except for the fourth. Senior guard Audrey Blair had 11 points and 4 takeaways. Another senior, Morganne Doyle, almost matched her season averages with 9 points and 8 rebounds. Sophomore point guard Lindsey Graber steadily ran the offense as she scored only 3 points but tallied 8 assists. Tya Harmon scored 9 points.
   Barr-Reeve had only 12 turnovers with 16 team assists. The Lady Vikings shot 6-11 from behind the arc and 10-14 from the charity stripe. With the win, the number-two ranked Barr-Reeve Lady Vikings moved to 14-0 on the season and dropped the Lady Rangers to 12-4. Forest Park won the reserve contest, 44-29.
Barr-Reeve girls’ varsity win big over Northeast Dubois 59-29
By Ethan Doyle, BR Student Reporter
   The number-two ranked Barr-Reeve Lady Vikings hosted the Northeast Dubois Jeeps on Thursday, January 14. Barr-Reeve came away with a Blue Chip Conference win 59-29. The game proved that the Lady Vikings could win and win big minus the services of senior guard Terrell Miller.
  Points were evenly distributed among the players but were led respectively by senior forward and Valpo-bound Liz Horton. She had 17 points, while Miller’s replacement, Audrey Blair, knocked down two threes and tallied 11 points. Three girls, Morganne Doyle, Tya Harmon, and Lindsey Graber, spotted 9 points on the night. Doyle also added 7 rebounds while Graber ran the offense and had 5 helpers.
  Overall, Barr-Reeve won the rebound battle as they have all year, 36-23. Senior forward Hilliary Fox was only 1-8 from the floor for 2 points but she contributed in other ways by getting 6 assists and a monstrous 15 rebounds. Barr-Reeve jumped out to 32-7 lead by halftime and Northeast Dubois never recovered. The win moved the Lady Vikings to 13-0 on the year and dropped Dubois to 8-7.
  After the game, Coach Mark Holt was pleased with the way his team performed in spite of losing their starting guard Terrell Miller for the season. “I thought we play very well at both ends of the court and especially on the defensive end. Any time you limit Dubois to two points the first quarter, seven at halftime and 14 after three quarters, I think you have done a good job on them. Dubois is a very good team and they have lost some close games of late but I think with the toughness on defense we showed tonight we just took them out of their game plan. We wanted to play hard and keep the game out of reach and finish it off.” Although Coach Holt never mentioned anything about last year’s game, it may have been in the back of his mind that Barr-Reeve had a big lead at Dubois at the end of three quarters and Dubois scored thirty some points to overtake the Vikings for the win.
  In the junior varsity contest, the Vikings fell to Northeast Dubois 40-27 as their record fell to 6-5 on the season.  The Vikings were down 13-12 at halftime, but Dubois scored nearly every time they had the ball in the third quarter.
