Lady Apaches upset by Oak Hill

by Gary Andrews

On a horrid shooting night, the Wabash Lady Apaches suffered their second loss of the season Tuesday, falling to Oak Hill 41-40.

Things looked good at the start when Jaclyn Lewis hit and after a Claire Cromer three the game was tied at 5, but with 3:00 to go, someone put a lid on the Apache bucket as they shot just 2 of 14 for the quarter and trailed 12-6 after one.

The shooting woes would continue for Wabash in the second, as the Lady Apaches didn’t find the bucket until 3:36 left when Kyleigh Hampton hit from behind the arch and a minute later Lewis hit again. The good news was Oak Hill was struggling also and Wabash trailed just 14-11. After an Eagle bucket, Lyndsie Thomas would hit two free throws to make it 16-13. Oak Hill would make one last push, scoring with 3 seconds left on the clock and led Wabash 18-13 at the half.

Wabash County High School Basketball on Wabash WebTV

by Bill Barrows

Because of the Christmas holiday and final exams for county high school students, the sports schedule is fairly light this week.

On Tuesday, the Lady Norse of Northfield host Caston, the Lady Apaches of Wabash host Oak Hill and the Lady Knights of Southwood travel over to Bluffton for non-conference matchups. On the boys’ side, only one game is on the docket with Northfield traveling to Southern Wells.

The weekend offers an intriguing slate of games. On Friday, the Manchester boys and girls teams travel to Southwood for an evening of basketball that fans love. High school basketball is a bargain, but in this case, twice the action for the price! The other matchup is at Coolman Gym where the Apaches will host Northfield.
