        After grabbing a win over arch rival Scottsburg in their previous game, the Austin Lady Eagles made another Mid-Southern Conference (MSC) stop at Charlestown on December 2 to take on the hosting Lady Pirates.
        What was a close game in the first half turned around in the Lady Eagles' favor thanks in part to senior spark Katy McIntosh in the last two quarters.
        The Lady Eagles walked off the court with a 56-43 victory and improved their overall record to 5-0 on the year and 2-0 in the MSC.
        The first half began with a steal and a lay-in by Michelle Goodin which was followed up by 4 nice points made by McIntosh to put the score at 6-0 Eagles.
        When a basket from the paint by Shantel Gray gave Austin a 10-2 lead, the Lady Pirates called a quick time out to get some plays set up. Charlestown began to creep back into the game and eventually snatched a 16-15 advantage over the visitors.

      Big Brothers Big Sisters Washington County is still seeking volunteers for its Corporate Mentoring Program at East Washington Middle School.
    The corporate program, which was made possible thanks to a grant by the Washington County Community Foundation, is different than the regular program in that the adult volunteer is only asked to have lunch with their Little one day a week.
    “It's where someone from the community goes to the school and takes a child out to lunch once a week,” said BBBS Director Monika Spaulding. “They can go to the school and eat with them or they can take them somewhere.”
    Volunteers are asked to commit for a full school year. Bigs, or adult volunteers, are usually matched with students in the fifth or sixth grade so they can be together for additional years. But students are accepted to the program in the fifth through eighth grades.

    Salem's Annie Newkirk got the ball on the inbounds play, drove the length of the floor and scored a basket.
    Newkirk was also fouled on the play and convert the free throw that gave the Lady Lions a lead.
    The Lady Musketeers still had two opportunities to answer.
    Melissa Lewis missed a shot, but her teammate, Jocelyn Mousty was on the other side of the rim for the rebound.
    She went up for a wide-open layup, but couldn't convert.
