Wingate was even more successful, winning the County basketball title in 1932 when they beat New Richmond and again in 1935 and 1936. The gold and blue had won sectionals in 1917, 1918, 1922, 1925, and 1931. As all Hoosier basketball fans know, Wingate became the first repeat winner of the IHSAA State Championship by outclassing the entire field in 1913 and 1914.

LINDEN — Tri-West opened the game on a 12-0 run, and never trailed in a 75-21 Sagamore Conference win over North Montgomery on Tuesday night.
“We no-showed,” Chargers coach Ryan Nuppnau said. “We came out scared. And Tri-West is a very good team. Kirby for them is a heck of a player, and she can create on her own and they got going.”
Kirby, just a sophomore, scored 16 of her game-high 24 points in the first half, as the Bruins (7-3, 4-1 SAC) cruised to a 33-13 halftime le

LEBANON — The Lebanon Lady Tigers were ahead, but knew they could be better at halftime of Friday night’s Sagamore Conference match-up with Crawfordsville.
