RENSSELAER â€” A week ago, Plymouthâ€™s girls basketball team ended a three-year sectional championship drought at New Prairie.
The Lady Pilgrims advanced through Griffith 32-25 in the morning game at Rensselaer Central, but their run at the programâ€™s first regional championship since 2008 fell short when the No. 10-ranked squad dropped a 44-28 decision to No. 4 Benton Central in the title game Saturday night.
FULTON â€” Oregon-Davisâ€™ latest Canterbury tale ended like each of the previous four: elimination at the Caston Girls Basketball Regional.
This time, Class A No. 1 Fort Wayne Canterbury hit 62 percent from the field over the final three quarters, placed five players in double figures, dominated the boards, and pulled away for a 79-54 win over the second-ranked Lady Cats in the Caston Regional final Saturday.
The defending state champions Cavaliers, who knocked off OD in the 2009, 2010, and 2012 regional finals and 2008 regional semifinal, ended the Catsâ€™ sensational season at 22-4.
WARSAW â€” Host Warsaw and Culver Military Academy swept through Saturdayâ€™s boys swim sectional.
Warsaw just won a few more.
Winning eight of the 12 events, the Warsaw Tigers won their sixth-straight sectional crown with 498.5 points, followed by CMAâ€™s 439.5.
â€śIt wasnâ€™t the way I wanted it, obviously, but it was the way I thought it would end,â€ť CMA assistant coach Major Tom Duckett said.
When Warsaw wasnâ€™t winning, CMA was, led by senior Bryan DeVries.
