Staff report

The Sidney High Lady Jackets have righted the ship after a 1-3 start to the season, notching their third straight victory Monday night in a makeup game against Vandalia at the high school.

The game was originally scheduled for Saturday but was called off because of the weather. When the two teams finally got together Monday night, the Lady Jackets came out firing, hitting four three-pointers in the first quarter and four more in the second on their way to a 60-50 victory.

It was the start of an ultra-busy week for coach Megan Mummey’s squad, which is back in action tonight at Greenville before hosting St. Marys Thursday.

“We started off nailing eight threes in the first half,” said Mummey, whose team is now 4-3 overall and 3-1 in the Greater Western Ohio Conference American North. “We hit 12 of 18 from the field in the first half and I knew they would come out pressuring us in the second half. It gave us fits, but we were able to slow it down and get the ball in the hands of the right people. So I was very peased with our overall offense. We had a lot of girls contribute in the scoring column.”

Celena Taborn, Sidney’s 6-foot-3 senior post player, had an outstanding game with another double-double. She had 17 points and 11 rebounds, and added five assists and five blocks.

“Celena really stepped it up coming down the stretch by doing the little things we needed to get the win,” Mummey added.

Sidney charged out to a 16-11 lead after one thanks to threes from four different people. That was repeated in the second quarter, leading to Sidney taking a 32-20 lead at the half.

But Vandalia (2-2, 5-3) wasn’t going away. The Lady Aviators made a charge in the third quarter, outscoring the Lady Jackets 17-11 to get right back in it and trail just 43-37 after three quarters.

Olivia Schoenherr led the Vandalia charge, hitting two three-pointers and scoring 10 of her 12 points in that quarter.

Sidney had three players in double figures, led by Taborn. Carrie Nuss hit three three-pointers and finished with 14 and Alinda Kindle added 13. She had two threes, as did Hayley Powers.

Vandalia (50) — O. Schoenherr 12, Franklin 2, A. Schoenherr 7, Fletcher 10, Knight 8, Petrosky 9, Burley 2.
