Staff report

SIDNEY — As expected, the unbeaten Sidney Lady Jackets had an easy time with Greenville in Greater Western Ohio Conference North basketball action at the high school Wednesday.

Sidney rolled to a 65-24 victory to run its record to 17-0 heading into a formidable challenge Saturday at Vandalia, which was just one game behind Sidney in the North standings heading into last night’s action.

Sidney’s win over Greenville ran its regular-season winning streak to 35 in a row, which is a school record.

Greenville entered the game with just two wins on the season, and proved to be no match for the Lady Jackets. Sidney scored the game’s first nine points and opened up a 16-2 lead after one quarter.

By the half it was 30-7, and when Sidney post player Celena Taborn got hot in the third quarter, it became a 30-point lead. The 6-foot-2 junior had 14 points in that quarter alone, including two three-pointers. And she went on to add six more in the final period to bring her total for the game to 27, which is a season high. She entered the game averaging 12.8 per game.

Taborn also had seven rebounds and six blocks.

Sylvia Hudson added 14 for Sidney and Kaitlyn Davis finished with 10.

“We rolled from the start,” said Sidney coach Megan Mummey. “Everyone contributed and played unselfish. We played solid defense and did what we needed to do. Now we have a big test on Saturday at Vandalia.”
