Effingham High School continued its hot season with a 46-31 Apollo Conference victory over Mount Zion Monday evening in girls basketball action.

The Hearts took a 10-4 opening quarter lead and led 19-8 at halftime. EHS outscored the Braves 27-23 in the second half.

Josie Zerrusen was the lone EHS player in double figures with 14 and pulled down seven rebounds. Jantzen Michael chipped in with eight points. Caitlin Kaufman pulled down seven boards.

"This was another good effort for us tonight," said EHS Coach Jeff Schafer. "We came out and played great defnese in the first half and that was key as our offense wasn't very good. We made some good ajdustments at halftime but then failed to execute some easy shots. To their credit, we couldn't put them away. We just kept battling. We made a nice run at the end of the half, getting some great minutes from our bench. The bench was excellent tonight.  We have one more Apollo game before the break and need to take care of business Thursday against Paris."

The Hearts improve to 3-0 in the conference, 8-0 overall.
