North Decatur senior too much for Lancers


Behind the hot shooting of senior Jenna Meyer, the North Decatur girls basketball team defeated visiting Mid-Hoosier Conference rival Edinburgh 65-52 Thursday night.

Meyer, who was coming off a career-high 34-point effort in a win against Milan, burned the Lancers for a game-high 25 points.

North Decatur improves to 9-7 with the win. Edinburgh falls to 4-12.

The Chargers’ offensive plan from the outset was clear — get the ball down low to Meyer. They succeeded, finding Meyer frequently for short jumpers and easy layups.

With the game tied at 6-all, senior guard Autumne Burton knocked down a 3-pointer to give the Lancers an early lead. But it wouldn’t last.
