The Switzerland County Middle School seventh grade girls basketball team participated in the Shawe Invitational Tournament over Christmas break.

The Lady Pacers played two games: the first against Trimble County, winning an overtime thriller by a final score of 30-28. Kyah Chase scored 13 points in the win, while Jaden Harrell had eight; Maddie Duvall with four; and Jessica Duvall with three.

In the championship game of the tourney Switzerland County competed against a very good St. Ambrose team from Seymour. The Lady Pacers fought hard, but came up a little short in the end with a final score of 35-27 in favor of St. Ambrose.

Once again Kyah Chase led Switzerland County in scoring with 13 points; followed by Jessica Duvall with eight. Rounding out the scoring with a bucket from each were Jaden Harrell, Roechelle Bolton, and Nora Hankins.
