PH girls secure tie for conference title

PENDLETON — The Pendleton Heights girls basketball team celebrated its seniors by torturing Yorktown for 32 en route to securing at least a tie for the Hoosier Heritage Conference title here Saturday.

The Arabians galloped past the Tigers 74-36 in a game that was over eight minutes into the contest when the home team was up 27-8. Yorktown didn't pass the 27-point mark until less than four minutes remained in the contest.

The seniors being honored were Kiawna Cottrell and Taylor Siefken and both stepped up for the occasion.

Each one of the pair hit 6-of-8 from the field and grabbed four rebounds. Siefken added a free throw to finish with 13 points and Cottrell notched 12.

"I don't think this will sink in that we're finishing our senior season until it is actually over," said Siefken. "We are preparing for our next game."

The seniors had plenty of support in this game from their teammates. Freshman Sam Hammel topped all scorers with 16 points, hitting 7-of-10 field goals and both of her free throws. "Just when you think she can't get any better, she does," said PH coach Holly Hollinger.

Hammel handled the ball much of the time the Arabians were running their offense and also was active as the point of the PH 1-3-1 zone. That zone forced 21 Yorktown mistakes even without putting the full-court press into action.

Junior Morgan Landes reached double figures with 10 points and freshman Adrienne Phillips was just shy with nine.

Hammel and freshman Kelsey Burton tied for the team high in rebounds with six apiece. Four of those from Hammel came off the offensive end.

"It is really nice to see the whole team playing well together now," said Cottrell. "I'd rather be doing this now than at the beginning of the season."

Only Katy Johnson scored in double figures with 12 as the Tigers were forced into woeful 11-of-43 shooting for the game. The Arabians had no such distress, hitting 33-of-52 from the field.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

Left guard Donald Thomas hit the ground following an 11-on-11 running drill and was visibly upset when he finally was helped to his feet. He threw his mouthguard away in anger and attempted to walk off the injury with trainers away from the rest of his teammates.

The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
