FULTON â€” Oregon-Davis put Morgan Township away with an 18-0 run spanning from the end of the second quarter through most of the third to reach the championship with a 43-28 semifinal win, but the Lady Cats couldnâ€™t recover from a slow start against top-ranked Canterbury to fall 64-45 in the title game at the Caston Girls Basketball Regional Saturday.
FORT WAYNE CANTERBURY 64, OREGON-DAVIS 45
INDIANAPOLIS â€” Bremenâ€™s Abraham Hall scored a takedown over Elkhart Centralâ€™s Dominique Stauffer with 1:08 remaining for a 3-1 decision and the heavyweight championship at the 74th Annual IHSAA State Wrestling Finals Saturday.
Hall, who entered the finals ranked No. 2 in the state by Indianamat.com, beat No. 1-rated Kaden Suter of Martinsville in triple overtime in the semifinals to advance to the title match before finishing off an unblemished 50-0 season with the championship. He was also named the winner of the Ward E. Brown Mental Attitude Award.
Filchak wins fly at Riley
Penn won the South Bend Riley Sectional with 480 points, while Bremen placed sixth with 170 points Saturday.
Nolan Filchak earned the Lions their lone state finals berth with a top finish in the butterfly, where he topped the field with a time of 52.58.

ARGOS â€” Similar game, same result.
Oregon-Davis claimed its first win of the season over Argos in the Bi-County consolation round Jan. 21, and the Dragons were hoping for a reprisal on their home floor Friday. But once again Argos couldnâ€™t hold onto a tentative lead down the stretch, and the Bobcats outlasted their hosts for a 48-46 win at Phil Weybright Gymnasium.
Trojans stumble at Valley
A slow start bit Class A No. 4 Triton in a 59-45 loss at Tippecanoe Valley Friday.
The Vikingsâ€™ boys basketball team doubled up the Trojans at halftime, 32-16, and following a big Triton run, pulled away in the fourth quarter.
Nick Kindig scored a game-high 24 points to lead the Vikings.
Junior Clay Yeo scored 23 points to lead Triton.
â€˘Â TIPPECANOE VALLEY 59,
Score by quarters
Triton: 10 16 31 45
Tippy Valley: 19 32 35 59
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth has been something of a first half team lately, building big cushions in the first two quarters and holding off opponents in the second half.
That all changed Thursday.
Not that the Pilgrims had a slow start â€” they opened with a 21-14 first frame and led by six at 32-26 at the half â€” but it was an 18-6 third quarter that made all the difference, and Plymouth cruised to a 69-45 Northern Lakes Conference season-closing win over visiting Wawasee on Senior Night at The Rock.
CMA earns 20 finals cuts at Warsaw preliminaries
Culver Military Academy earned a total of 20 top eight berths to the finals at the Warsaw Boys Swim Sectional prelims Thursday, while Plymouth recorded six top eight finishes to move onto Saturdayâ€™s finals.
CMA earned three finals berth in three different races, including a one-two finish in the 200 free as Jorge DeLaVega topped the preliminary field and Samuel Curtis earned second.
WARSAW â€” Culver Academies head coach Major Tom Duckett is mum about making any predictions about a sectional championship.
Two weeks ago his girls swim team surprised him with the programâ€™s first-ever team championship, and thatâ€™s just what the boys are hoping to do as they enter tonightâ€™s Warsaw Sectional prelims on the heels of an undefeated dual meet season.
Plymouth joins the 13-team Warsaw field tonight at 5:30 p.m. with the finals and consols set for the top eight and 16, respectively, Saturday morning, while Bremen enters the 10-team South Bend Riley Sectional field.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” Last year, Abraham Hallâ€™s fourth-place finish at semistate earned him a tough draw heading into the state wrestling finals, and he missed the cut from Fridayâ€™s opening round to the second day of the tourney Saturday.
The Bremen seniorâ€™s heavyweight championship at Merrillville last Saturday gave him a more favorable draw this time around, and heâ€™s hoping to capitalize with a top finish as the 74th Annual IHSAA Individual State Wrestling Finals get underway Friday at 6 p.m. with the quarterfinals set to begin Saturday at 9:30 at Conseco Fieldhouse.
