The Brown County Lady Eagles traveled to Seymour to tip-off the season with a scrimmage against the Seymour Lady Owls. Even though the Lady Eagles fell short in all four quarters, they showed some serious potential for a successful season.
The Lady Eagles fell short but that didn’t stop some of them from performing well. Senior Allison Stogsdill, coming off of a historic season put up 11 points and pulling in three rebounds. Gracie Matlock played acceptingly well, nearing a double-double by scoring 9 points and grabbing a total of 8 rebounds.
Missing the entirety of last season due to an ACL tear, Aubrey Hollander was the leading scorer for the Lady Eagles in Tuesday’s contest. Hollander put up 13 points, pulled in 8 rebounds, and dished out a game-leading 6 assists. When asked about her return on the court with her teammates, Hollander stated, “It was hard at the beginning because they got used to playing without me but after a while, I got back into it.”
The Lady Eagles played well on the defensive side of the ball tallying up a significant number of steals. The team pulled away ten steals total, six of which came from the defensive menace Anna Fleetwood. Even though the ladies were successful on that side of the ball, they also had some missed opportunities on the offensive side of the ball turning the ball over 19 times.
The Lady Eagles will be in action next against the Bloomington North Cougars at home on November 15th. The season tip-off was originally scheduled for November 9th to take on the Bloomfield Lady Cardinals but due to conflicting schedules for both schools, the event was cancelled and yet to be rescheduled.
