    The North Harrison Middle School 7th grade girls’ basketball team won the Harrison County tourney 42-33 last week at Corydon Junior High School, and 26 points by the Lady Cats’ Jill Book helped to seal the deal.
    The Lady Cats were behind 6-4, when Book hit a three pointer, was fouled, and hit the free throw attempt to put her team ahead for good at 8-6.
    North led by a slim 10-8 margin at the end of the 1st quarter and it was still a slim 17-13 edge for the Cats at the half time break.
    In the second half, the 3rd quarter didn’t exactly do the Lady Cats any favors, as Corydon outscored them 9-8.
    The Lady Cats got 10 points from Book in the final period as they pulled away from Corydon. Book had an old fashioned three point play, and hit on a total of 8 of 9 free throws in the 4th. Book hit on a 9 of 12 free throws in the game (75 percent).
