Culver Military senior Anthony McHugh scored a second period nearfall against 138-pound No. 1-ranked Tommy Forte of Mishawaka in the finals of the Merrillville Wrestling Semistate Saturday. McHugh lost by a narrow 3-2 decision to finish runner-up at the meet and earn a spot out to the state finals next week.
Plymouth's Haley Harrell put up seven points in the fourth quarter to lead the Lady Pilgrims in a down-to-the-wire win over St. Joe Friday night and followed up with a team-high 10 points versus Marian in the New Prairie Sectional Championship Saturday.
NEW CARLISLE â€” After Friday nightâ€™s semifinal thrillers, Saturdayâ€™s New Prairie Sectional championship seemed like a bit of an anticlimax.
It sure didnâ€™t feel that way to the Lady Pilgrims though.
No. 10 Plymouth used its signature brand of swarming man-to-man to hold Mishawaka Marian to 1 of 6 shooting in the first half en route to an 18-7 halftime lead, and the Lady Pilgrimsâ€™ pressure never let up in an eventual 38-21 sectional championship victory over the Knights.
HAMLET â€” That old adage about defense winning championships held for Oregon-Davisâ€™ girls basketball team Saturday.
The Class A No. 2 Lady Cats switched up full-court and half-court defenses, restricted the scoring looks for Tritonâ€™s top shooters, and limited the No. 9 Trojans to 30 percent from the field in a 76-38 victory in the Class A Sectional 51 final at The Den.
MERRILLVILLE â€” Sometimes, rematches are a good thing, even when they donâ€™t work out.
Ask Culver Academies senior Anthony McHugh, who is riding a momentum wave into next weekendâ€™s state wrestling finals.
Itâ€™s not that he won a championship in the 138-pound weight class at Saturdayâ€™s Merrillville semistate tournament. Actually, he lost.
But in taking Mishawakaâ€™s Tommy Forte down to the wire before dropping a 3-2 decision in the title bout, McHugh proved he may be ready to make a long run up the awards stand at the state meet.
