  • The Ingalls Lady Bulldogs outscored the Ashland Lady Bluejays 11-2 in the second quarter to build a 17-point halftime lead on the way to a 64-42 victory to clinch the Southern Plains-Iroquois Activities Association regular season title to go with their tournament title last month.

Kaisha Batman scored 17 points (including three 3-pointers) and Rebecca Wyatt added 15 (nine points in the opening quarter) as the Lady Bulldogs improved to 19-0 on the season and 8-0 in the league.

"We really focused well at home early. The girls played off the energy of the crowd and played as well as they have in a long time," said Ingalls girls basketball coach Roger Thurlow. "We've had a pretty tough stretch with good defensive teams. Offense is going to come and go, but our girls have played defense well this year."

Elizabeth McKinney scored 11 points (including three of her team's seven 3-pointers) to lead Ashland, who closes out the regular season with a 14-6 record.

Wyatt's scoring drive in the opening quarter helped Ingalls gain a 19-11 lead after eight minutes of play. Ashland had only a field goal by Kara Reimer in the second quarter as Bulma Galaviz scored four points to lead the Lady Bulldogs in the second quarter.

Ingalls increased the lead to 24 by the end of the third quarter to seal the victory.
