Hawks News · Lady Hawk Girls Basketball Continues to Soar in Summer Play


At the Triton Central Shootout on June 16th both JV and Varsity Lady Hawks took the floor in 3 games.

The JV Hawks finished 3-0. They defeated Monroe Central, Bloomington North and North Knox.

The Varsity Team finished 2-1. The 2 wins were very impressive, as the Varsity Lady Hawks got to showed off some of the individual and team skills that they developed over the last few weeks.  Izzy Burr, Vanessa Wilson, and Ajulu Thathu showed the leadership expected of 3 returning starters. The wins game against Morristown and North Knox.  The loss came against Sectional Champion New Palestine.  The Lady Hawks competed well early in this game but New Palestine pressure eventually got to them.

This was the last of the Summer Shoot Outs for the team. Coach Gibbs said ” I love the work and the effort put in by many of the girls this summer. It was by far the best summer we have had in my 3 years at Decatur. I see growth in the program.  I think this work and dedication should spring board us into a great pre-season and an AWESOME 2018-19 campaign.”
