Girls Basketball Holiday Tourney Champions

Written by Clinton Randall of Bluebag Media----UNION CITY, Ind. – The Lady Indians came from behind Wednesday night to beat Randolph County rival, Monroe Central, winning the 2nd Annual Union City Girls Basketball Holiday Tournament.

Turnovers plagued Union City as they trailed the Lady Bears most of the contest. Finally in the fourth quarter, the Lady Indians tied the championship game at 32 a piece with a basket by junior Baylee Hartman with just five minutes to play. They then took the lead… as senior Madeline Adams hit two free throws with 3:08 left in the game.

The Lady Bears had one chance to tie it up with seconds left before Union City junior Kora Kerns forced a jump ball with possession going to the Lady Indians with just one tick left on the clock.

“It was an exciting game with a championship type environment,” said Union City head coach Sarah Hines. “Monroe Central was able to get points from offensive rebounds and I told the girls at halftime we had to keep them (Monroe Central) off the boards if we wanted to win tonight.”

Union City held the Lady Bears to just two points in the final quarter of play to win the tournament championship by a score of 34-32. Junior Courtney Wise led the team with 10 points.

“We were able to make adjustments we needed during timeouts and keep Monroe Central from getting the lead back late in the game,” Coach Hines added. “I am very proud of how the team played all three games of the tournament. They have earned a little break before playing in the county tournament next week.”

Union City is now (14-2) overall on the season and will head to Monroe Central Jan. 8 for the annual Randolph County Tournament.
