WARSAW â€” Two weeks ago, the Warsaw Girls Swim Sectional shaped up to be largely a battle between the host Tigers and the Culver Academies with a significant drop-off for the rest of the field.
The boys tourney started out in much the same fashion Thursday, with Culver Military Academy and the Tigers crowding out the top eight with 23 and 22 finals berths, respectively, headed into the final round at the Warsaw Boys Sectional Saturday.
A pair of area teams are hoping the old adage that defense wins championships proves true at regionals this weekend.
