Girls open on road at Franklin County


The Rising Sun Lady Shiners open the 2017-18 basketball campaign on Friday, Nov. 3rd at Franklin County.

Coach Abby Friend’s troops held a scrimmage against Hauser on Friday, Oct. 27th. The scrimmage replaced the annual Ohio River Valley Conference Jamboree. The format consisted of four 15 minute quarters with a running clock and no free throws.

Rising Sun is short on numbers and will not have a reserve team. The 10 girl squad went to nine with 2:12 left in the opening quarter as senior Jayden McAlister re-injured a prior knee injury.

Senior Lucy Carrigan looked to be her usual form as the school’s third all-time leading scorer, coming off a single season best last season.

Danyka Groover looks to give the Shiners the size they need inside after missing last season with a knee injury.

Junior Sydney Bostic returns along with sophomores Emma Levi, Kinsey Price, Sydney Pitts, and Paige Groover. Freshman Maddy Wilson and Riley Barth round out the squad.

Rising Sun will play at South Decatur on Nov. 10th where they return home for three games and six of their next 10 prior to Christmas.

The Ohio River Valley Conference season opens on January 9th against Milan.
