Jeffersonville outscored Columbus East 35-16 in the second half to erase a 29-19 halftime deficit to claim its first Hoosier Hills Conference victory Saturday night in girls' basketball action.

The host Red Devils ended a four-game skid with the win.

"We started a little slow, but were able to amp up the defensive intensity in the second half," Jeffersonville coach Matt Pait said. "That made the difference for us."

Haley Vogan led the way for the Red Devils (3-4) with a solid all-around effort. She finished with 19 points, nine rebounds and four assists.

Audrey Wetzel scored a team-high 12 points for the Olympians (5-2).
