Western girls finish third at Twin Lakes basketball tournament.


Logansport went on to beat Class 3A No. 5 Western Boone 69-60 in the championship. Jennings scored 37 points.

Western had a dominant showing against Carroll in the third-place game. The Panthers led 15-5 after the opening quarter, 43-22 at halftime and 59-30 after three quarters.

“We pressed all over the floor and we were able to take control from the get-go,” Keisling said. “We played a lot of players. It was a good team win. Carroll is a nice, up-and-coming team so it was a nice win to get out of there with.”

Carley O’Neal scored 16 points, Caitlyn O’Neal scored 13 and Givens, Black and Brooklyn Campbell added seven apiece. Carley O’Neal and Black earned all-tournament honors.

Macy Willoughby led Carroll with 11 points.

Western went 2-1 in the invite, pushing its season record to 10-2.


Taylor lost twice on the final day of play at the Twin Lakes Invitational. In losers’ bracket play, Taylor fell 58-42 to Twin Lakes. Then to finish, Taylor fell 73-45 to Evansville Memorial in the seventh-place game.

Against Twin Lakes, Cami Hansen led Taylor with eight points and Brie Boehler added eight.

In the loss to Memorial, Savannah Delgado scored 13 points for Taylor and Hannah Mullinax had 10.

“I’m extremely pleased with these kids, the progression [Saturday],” Taylor coach Dennis Bentzler said. “We have had four games where we scored in the 20s this year. [Saturday] we played two quality teams. Offensively, we are much, much better. We are starting to attack the basket. The difference is we’re scoring in the 40s now and we’re still not shooting well.”

Bentzler said the squad took “baby steps” and expects the Titans to be better as a result of the tourney, despite taking three losses in the eight-team, two-day event. There were highlights despite the losses.
