The Guerin Catholic girls basketball team hadn’t won a game for almost three weeks - until Tuesday night.

The Golden Eagles (3-15) ended a five-game losing streak with a 45-34 home win over the University Trailblazers (14-6).

Senior Sydney Geis led Guerin in scoring with 13 points on 3-of-13 from the field. The Golden Eagles, who held the lead at the end of every quarter, jumped out to a 15-10 advantage after the first.

Eight Golden Eagles saw action in the game, and every player contributed in a positive way. Freshman Olivia Labus and senior Carly Hammons joined Geis in double figures with 10 points each. Junior Hanna Bills scored four and freshman Claire Sawyer and senior Danielle Mason each chipped in with three.

Sophomore Lindsey Syrek finished with a game-high 14 points for the Trailblazers, including making six of University’s 12 free throws. Senior Natalie Nickless scored 10, sophomore Lily Snyder had six and junior Lucy Snyder chipped in with four. University shot 10-of-56 from the floor as a team. Nickless made the Trailblazers only two 3-pointers.

Guerin took a 26-17 lead into the locker room and came out of a low-scoring third quarter with a 32-22 edge. The Golden Eagles outscored the Trailblaz- ers 13-12 in the final eight min- utes to secure their third win of the season.

Geis finished one rebound shy of a double-double with nine boards and also registered an assist, a steal and a block. Labus also finished one rebound away from a double-double. While she didn’t score, sophomore Sarah Holba grabbed seven boards.

The Golden Eagles only shot 14-of-49 (29 per- cent) from the floor as a team, but they connected on 6-of-14 (43 percent) from beyond the arc. Guerin also made 11-of- 18 at the charity stripe.

Guerin returns to the hardwood on Friday, when they travel to face Circle City Conference rival Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory. The Golden Eagles currently sit at 0-3 in conference play, while the Braves are 0-1. 

University will look to end its three-game losing streak Thursday at Tri-West Hendricks. The Trailblazers are 5-4 on the road, and the Bruins are 7-3 at home. Tri-West Hendricks is on a two-game winning streak.
