GIRLS BASKETBALL: Warsaw claims its 16th sectional title

DUNLAP — DUNLAP — Northridge had a dream of making history. Warsaw just wouldn’t let it happen.

Warsaw’s Lady Tigers pulled away in the third quarter and defeated the Northridge Lady Raiders, 46-35, in the championship game of a Class 4A basketball sectional at Concord’s McCuen Gym.

It’s the 16th sectional title for Warsaw while Northridge, finishing with a 19-5 record, was denied its first.

The Tigers, now 22-1, move on to a four-team regional next Saturday at Valparaiso High School.

Northridge scored the first four points of this defensive struggle and still led, 15-14, at halftime by outscoring Warsaw 5-2 in the second quarter.

The Tigers took control with a 14-3 scoring command in the third period as the Raiders went 2-for-13 from the field in the middle two quarters.

Raider coach Doug Springer said, “In the first half, we executed our game plan by attacking and blocking out. Warsaw picked up its pressure and got on the boards in the third quarter. Their strength and size took over.”

Down 30-20 with 6:39 to play, the Lady Raiders refused to fold.

Senior Haley Schrock hit a ‘3’ from the right corner and her twin sister Madison then scored on the end of a fast break.

After a Warsaw score, Haley Schrock hit another ‘3’ from the left corner and suddenly Northridge was within 32-28 with 4:56 remaining.

But, the Raiders could get no closer and Warsaw iced its sectional championship by scoring its last 12 points from the free-throw line in the final 2:33.

“We gave away height and weight in about every game we played this year,” said Springer. “But, our kids continued to fight. We got it within four, but just couldn’t hit some shots down the stretch.”

Haley Schrock had 15 points and seven rebounds to lead the Northridge effort. Sophomore Taylor Miller scored eight points and Madison Schrock five.

“I can’t thank the Schrock twins enough for what they have done for our program,” said Springer. “They put the program on their backs and brought us state recognition. Northridge has been in only five championship games over 40 years and three of those were in the last six.”

Warsaw’s head coach is Michelle Harter who was a sophomore on Wawasee’s 1985 state runnerup team coached by the late Dale Brannock. Harter led the Warriors with 12 points in the state title game against Crown Point.

“As a player, it was tremendous to win in the tournament,” said Harter. “As a coach, I just wanted to win it for our seniors. They listen and trust the staff.

“We knew it would be a battle with Northridge. They have some tremendous shooters, have great fundamentals and continue to attack.”
