CIRCLEVILLE - This one was decided early.

The Ohio University Southern Lady Trailblazers jumped out to a 55-11 first half lead and cruised to an 85-31 rout of the Washington Bible College Thursday.

It was the first win of the season for OUS after opening with losses to the Rio Grande junior varsity and the University of Miami-Hamilton. Blazers coach Trisha Damron said the losses actually helped.
