Switzerland County recovered from a blowout loss the night before to knock off South Dearborn 44-42 in girls basketball Saturday in Vevay.
The Pacers suffered a 37-2 loss to Madison on Friday, a game that was stopped in the third quarter due to a leaking air duct. But Switzerland shrugged off the loss less than 24 hours later to pick up its first win of the season.
"I am very pleased with our effort tonight from our players. We had a balanced effort by all the girls who played for us," Switzerland coach Ashley Chase said. "We did a great job executing on both ends of the floor, hitting the boards, and making big shots. This was a big win for us and will help buld the confidence we need for the rest of our games in the next couple of weeks."
After trailing by two at halftime, Switzerland outscored the Knights by seven in the third quarter and held on for the win.
Senior Emily White led the Pacers with 12 points while Eve Galbreath and Kelsi Konkle scored eight points each. Brooke Todd chipped in six, Mercedes Parham had five, Bre Ricketts scored three, Shelby O'Neal had two and Makenzie Mathews scored one.
Kooper Vertz led South Dearborn with 21 points and Emily Townsend had 15.
Switzerland, now 1-1 on the season, hosts Rising Sun on Friday.
