SOUTH WEBSTER — The South Webster Lady Jeeps made sure that just one wasn’t enough.

With their lopsided 41-point (65-24) victory over visiting Belpre, the Lady Jeeps won their second straight Division IV sectional championship — and a berth in the Southeast 1 district semifinals this Saturday.

South Webster jumped ahead of Belpre 21-0 through the first period, and never looked back in their 65-24 win.

Entering halftime with a 28-13 lead, the Lady Jeeps posted their best quarter of the game in the third period with a 27-5 margin.

Four Lady Jeeps reached double figures in scoring in the win, led by senior Bri Claxon’s game-high 23 points.

Claxon made a game-best eight field goals and went seven-of-eight at the foul line in the tournament win.

Sophomore Bella Claxon scored 16 points and knocked down three of South Webster’s four made threes as a team.

Faith Maloney and Skylar Zimmerman both scored 11 points, while Kerith Wright added four on a pair of field goals.

As a team, the Lady Jeeps went 13-of-16 at the foul line and made 24 total baskets.

No. 4 seed South Webster advances to Saturday’s Division IV Southeast District semifinal — where they’ll face No. 5 seed Paint Valley with a trip to the district title tilt on the line.

Tipoff between the Lady Jeeps and the Lady Bearcats is set for 3:30 p.m. on Saturday (February 19th) at Piketon High School.
