The Sheridan girls' basketball team took on the Class 2A fourth-ranked Lapel Bulldogs on Monday and came out on top 59-56.

The Blackhawks (10-2) had another big night from their stars but free throw shooting was key in their win over the Bulldogs (10-1).

As a team they shot 74 percent from the line but freshman Audrey Reed and junior Faith DeVaney each went perfect from the charity stripe to give the Blackhawks the edge. Both combined to shoot 20 of 20 from the free-throw line.

It's the team's sixth win in a row since their one-point loss to Carrol Flora earlier this month.

Sophomore Brittany Welch led the Blackhawks with 22 points and three steals. Senior Katie Hybarger was a monster on the boards with 13 big rebounds. She also chipped in three points and five assists.

The game was close the whole way with neither team willing to give up an inch. Sheridan led most of the way and were victorious after a late fourth-quarter buzzer beater fell short of the basket.

The Blackhawks will have a few days off before hosting their tournament next Monday. The Blackhawks will play the opening game of the tournament against the Indiana Math and Science Academy Knights at 11 a.m. The winner of that game will take on the winner of Hammond Gavit and Liberty Christian.
