The Mitchell High School girls basketball team had no answer for Sarah Carr on Thursday.

Carr scored 24 points and pulled down 12 rebounds to help Huron defeat Mitchell 62-36 at the Corn Palace in Mitchell. Carr-who committed to play collegiate basketball at Dakota Wesleyan University earlier this season-was also a perfect 12-of-12 from the free throw line.

"That was one of her typical nights," Huron head coach Dave Stobbs said. "She gives you everything she's got and she works her tail off in the paint. I think one of the bigger things about her is that she's a great free throw shooter, half of her scoring output came at the free throw line."

The Tigers were 20-of-46 from the floor and 18-of-19 from the free throw line in the win. Meanwhile, the Kernels shot 15-of-46 from the floor and 4-of-9 from the free throw line. Huron raced out to a strong start, taking a 33-16 halftime lead.

"The game plan was to get the ball inside, and for the most part, we didn't do that until three minutes to go in the first half," Mitchell head coach Wes Morgan said. "We played with them in the second half but we got ourselves into such a hole in the first half and couldn't get out of it."

Leading the Kernels offensively was Tess Limberg, who had 12 points on a 5-of-8 shooting performance. Limberg's 12 points were a career-high for the freshman guard.

"I think the game worked out really well for me as I was able to get a few layups in," Limberg said. "But we just started the game a little too slow."

Jenna Weich was the other Kernel player in double figures, as she added 10 points in the contest. The Kernels were outrebounded 31-17, and committed 15 turnovers.

Mitchell (1-4) is back in action at 7 p.m. today against Watertown at the Corn Palace in Mitchell, while Huron (2-5) faces Brookings on Saturday in Huron.

"We have to have a short memory here but we have to learn from this game," Morgan said. "We'll have to come back with a lot of intensity and get after the kids tomorrow. It's not going to be easy, but we have to play hard and play smart."

Subvarsity

JV: Mitchell won 48-36. Tess Limberg led the Kernels with 13 points.

Sophomores: Mitchell won 25-23. Maggie Kattner led the Kernels with eight points.
