INDIANAPOLIS â€” Not satisfied with ending a 36-year sectional championship drought, the Eagles kept on rolling to eventual regional and semistate titles.
On Saturday, their historic run came to an end as defending state champion Washington handed Culver Military Academy a 61-46 loss in the Class 3A State Basketball Final at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” Indianapolis Metropolitanâ€™s boys basketball team answered every Triton challenge.
From the No. 2 Trojansâ€™ 12-3 game-opening run right through to Triton senior Griffyn Carpenterâ€™s triple with 5 seconds left, the unranked Pumas responded with defense, big buckets, key offensive rebounds and clutch free throws to down Triton, 59-55 in the Class A state final at Conseco Fieldhouse Saturday.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” While the Triton Trojans came up short in their goal of a second state title and Marshall County teams went 0 for 2 at the IHSAA State Basketball Championships, senior guard Jordan Everett earned himself a nice consolation prize with the 2011 Class A Arthur L. Trester Mental Attitude Award Saturday at Conseco Fieldhouse.
â€śItâ€™s a very prestigious award, and itâ€™s an honor,â€ť said Everett, who is ranked third in his class and plans to study engineering at the University of Louisville next fall.
