Vickers scores 23 in senior night win
Senior night at Huntington saw the green and white storm out
to an 11-0 advantage after one period, and despite
Southeastern fighting back to eventually grab a second half
lead; the Lady Huntsmen regained control and held on for a
47-45 victory.

Southeastern started the second quarter on a 16-6 run to tie
the game, but Huntington responded to take a 22-18 lead at
the half. A key play late in the first half was what seemed like
a meaningless foul by Southeastern’s Catherine
Dresbach. The reason her second personal ended up being so
important is because the senior picked up a quick third early
in the third period and was forced to the bench for a lengthy
amount of time.

Huntington took advantage opening up a 32-22 advantage.
By the fourth quarter, the Lady Panthers were in jeopardy of
seeing it slip away, but another Dresbach – Merrilee –
took the game over down low. The 5-9 sophomore scored all
12 of her points in the final frame including a bucket that gave
Southeastern a late lead at 40-39 with just under three
minutes to play. Following a timeout, Huntington responded
by scoring four of the game’s next five points to lead 43-
41 with under a minute to play. This is when Catherine
Dresbach fouled out of the game.

Huntington freshman Jackie Kellough delivered two late free
throws and Huntington was able to record a few key
defensive stops as the Lady Huntsmen held on for the two-
point win.

In the loss, Sophie McCorkle shared team-high scoring
honors with Merrilee with 12 points. Catherine, who struggled
through a second half of foul trouble, was held to nine points.

For Huntington in the win, Madison Vickers scored a game-
high 23 points. Paige Danner added 10 points.
