2023-24 Season Review

The Lady Royals basketball program found success at all three levels during the 2023-2024 season. The freshmen team finished 8-2, the JV 18-1 and the varsity 13-9. The varsity season was highlighted by a 5-0 record in the Circle City Conference, winning the program’s 5th straight championship.  

The girls were recognized with many individual honors for their stellar season. Senior Claire Lindsey was named 1st Team Marion County and All-Circle City Conference. Fellow senior Taylor Turk ended her Roncalli career with a number of awards as well, including Honorable Mention Marion County, All-Circle City Conference, Hoosier Basketball Magazine Top 60 Workouts participant, and she was also named to the county roster for the 2024 Senior Girls All-Star Classic. Joining Taylor with an Honorable Mention Marion County and All-Circle City Conference recognition is freshman Elliot Leffler. Seniors Natalie Lehner, Aubrey Silcox and Taylor Turk were all awarded IBCA Honorable Mention Academic All-State.

The accolades did not stop there! Individual Roncalli awards went to the following Lady Royals: Claire Lindsey was named MVP, Taylor Turk was presented the Leadership Award, Most Improved went to Aubrey Silcox, and Natalie Lehner was awarded the Mental Attitude Award, Sportsmanship Award and she was voted Best Teammate. 

Team leaders for the season include Elliot Leffler in scoring with 13 points per game, sophomore Lydia Stahley led the team in field goal percentage at 58%, Taylor Turk led in rebounding at 5.4 per game, Claire Lindsey led the team in assists with 4.4 per game and junior Sara Rosko led the team in steals with 1.8 per game.

Head coach Jason Sims shares this about this year’s seniors, “The program will be graduating eight seniors who have all been great ambassadors for not only our program but for Roncalli High School the past four years. Claire Lindsey is a four-year varsity letterman who will be impossible to replace. Taylor Turk will continue her basketball career at Franklin College and has been our vocal leader. Aubrey overcame a serious injury and was voted our Most Improved Player. Natalie’s recognitions from her teammates speak for themselves, and Jasmine Horsman and Emme Scott played all four years in our program and improved each year. They were both great defensive players, and most importantly, were great teammates. The graduation of these six players plus our two senior managers, Izzy TenBarge and Ally Cissell, will be a great loss to Roncalli but will be a huge gain to the world.”
