Batavia, GE, and Goshen girls finishing strong

Batavia’s girls and those from Glen Este and Goshen are enjoying the best finishes to the 2006-07 regular-season of varsity basketball.


Batavia is still in the midst of the Southern Buckeye Conference National (SBC-N) Division championship chase after a 53-32 beating of Blanchester. The host Bulldogs were in command all the way 10-3, 24-17, and 40-22. Batavia scoring leaders: Heather Hines 18 and Jamie Bare 13.

The Green and White handed Georgetown its first setback of the campaign in the Southern Buckeye Conference National Division. This triumph severely tightened the SBC-N race between these two teams. In a battle between the teams representing the county seats of Clermont and Brown counties, the former held slim early leads of 8-7 and 16-15 before widening the gap to 34-24 after three quarters of action. Batavia scoring leader: Heather Hines 11.

East Clinton was the most recent victim of the Bulldogs. Batavia returned from Clinton County with a 63-47 SBC-N triumph over the Astros. The Green and White was ahead throughout. Batavia scoring leaders: Heather Hines 17, Kayla Ernst 14 and Jamie Bare 10.
