Boys Basketball

The boy's team started off their season with a scrimmage against Lawrence Central. This tune up was held at the Fieldhouse on the 19th. The Cards then spent the next week traveling to both ends of the state. On Wednesday before Thanksgiving, they made the trip to Jeffersonville and then on Saturday traveled to Merrillville. The team got off to a slow start against Jeffersonville but battled back to make it a competitive, hard-fought game. The Cards just couldn't close the early hole they found themselves in and the Red Devils pulled away late in the second half to win by 13. Against Merrillville, the team got an early lead and maintained it throughout the first half but by the end of the third the score was tied. The Cards ran out of gas in this one. Merrillville outscored Southport in the fourth quarter dealing the Cards their second lose of the season. This week, Southport will play Center Grove on Friday and then host Ben Davis on Saturday.


The freshmen team began the season against the Falcons of Perry Meridian. The boys came out of the gates quick and got up on their opponent with defense and transition points. The final score was 57-41. The team traveled with the JV and Varsity to play in Jeffersonville. On the Monday after Thanksgiving Break the boys hosted Ben Davis. They won by a score of 54-42. They traveled to Center Grove last night to face the Trojans. The team battled but lost by one.
