SR Lady Raiders claim road victory over Southwestern Hanover Rebels
Following their long bus ride on Friday, Nov. 20, to battle Christian Academy of Indiana, New Albany, where South Ripley Lady Raiders Varsity won 61 to 37, the basketball teams were back on the bus and headed South to Southwestern Hanover on Saturday, Nov. 21. This trek ended positively as well for varsity players with a 57-24 win over the Lady Rebels. This is the fourth victory under their belts and better because the ride home was much shorter. The recent double victories were a welcomed resolve, after the rough season loss against rival Jac-Cen-Del at JCD High School, which was followed by victories over both the Batesville Lady Bulldogs and the Lawrenceburg Lady Tigers. South Ripley may have taken one lump, but they are definitely not poised to take more. Varsity action resulted in a significant Raider out-scoring of their Lady Rebel opponents to a final count of 57-24 over the balance of regulation play.
