The Arabians doubled Frankton’s output Tuesday, Jan. 14, and won 60-30.

Lady Arabians fall hard to Anderson
Pendleton Heights went into its Madison County Tournament first-round game at Anderson Friday, Jan. 10, not in the best shape, physically and mentally.
It showed on the scoreboard, as the Indians handed the Arabians a 71-40 defeat and ended their four-game winning streak.
PH dropped to 9-4 and sustained its biggest margin of defeat since the 2009 Arabians fell to South Bend Washington by 32 in the semistate.
“We played scared,” PH coach Holly Hollinger-Gutierrez said. “We prepared all week and we thought we were ready, but we just didn’t show up.”
