Student Athletic Council

Student athletes from a variety of sports' programs at Southport were chosen to represent athletics and be the voice of Southport student athletes. So far this year they have developed a new sportsmanship statement. They just shot a video that will be played on the video board before games in the Fieldhouse reading the statement below.

"Southport High School is committed to demonstrating respect for all of our fellow athletes, coaches, officials, and spectators. All representatives of the Southport athletic programs, as well as the student body, should exhibit positive behavior. A core value in athletics at Southport High School is to stay humble through victory and defeat. Together, we will make our community proud and will show what it truly means to be a Cardinal."

The following week, the girls would host two Conference Indiana opponents in Columbus North and Bloomington South. Against the Bulldogs, the Lady Cards had a slow start but put up a good fight the rest of the way. Ashley Raisor lead the Lady Cards with 11 points. Against the Panthers, the girls battled hard but came up short. They lost by four with Kyra Duncan and Lexie Green leading the way with 12 points and 11 points. The Bloomington South game was a special evening as Southport honored iconic basketball coach Marilyn Ramsey.

Arsenal Tech visited the Fieldhouse to round up the pre-Thanksgiving schedule. The Lady Cards jumped out on the Titans early and continued to build on their lead. Savannah Edington led the way with 14 points and 9 rebounds.

Avon arrived to finish off the month and several home games on the schedule. The Orioles were a strong team but the Lady Cards played extremely hard. A solid all around effort was put forth by the girls but they fell to Avon. On this night, members of the youth basketball teams were recognized.
