BOURBON â€” Triton standouts Griffyn Carpenter and Clay Yeo looked like a couple of racehorses just itching to charge out of the Class A Triton Regional gate.
However, saddled with two fouls apiece by the 2:52 mark of the first frame, the high-scoring duo sat the rest of the first half while starters Austin Davis, Jordan Everett and Quentyn Carpenter and reserves Blake Lemler and Zak Shively slowed the pace and steadied the reins.
CROWN POINT â€” The Eagles followed up their first ever sectional championship with a regional crown, and they did it with a dramatic flourish.
Senior forward Juwan Brescacinâ€™s tip-in at the buzzer bounced high off the rim before dropping back in to seal Culver Militaryâ€™s 54-52 win over Western in the championship game at the Class 3A Crown Point Regional Saturday.
The Eagles will now travel to Huntington North for their northern semistate against Columbia City â€” which trumped Harding 55-47 to win the Blackford Regional over the weekend â€” Saturday at 3:15 p.m. EST.
NORTH JUDSON â€” Coming back from a double-digit deficit is difficult. Against a team as sound as Westview, it is nearly impossible.
Down 12 to Westview at halftime of Saturdayâ€™s Class 2A regional semifinal, North Judson-San Pierre couldnâ€™t catch up. Aggressive in desperation, the host Bluejays racked up 25 fouls and were outscored 24-10 at the foul line in a season-ending 70-57 defeat.
NEW YORK â€” Waverly Neer had a feeling it might take a record pace to win the womenâ€™s 5,000-meter run at the New Balance High School Indoor Track & Field Championships.
She was right.Â
The Culver Girls Academyâ€™s starÂ senior and 2010 IHSAA state cross country champion set a national high school indoor recordÂ of 16:35.15 Friday nightÂ at New York Cityâ€™s famed Armory Center and still had enough gas left in the tank for a PR in the mile race Sunday.
