Despite the loss, Knepp saw a positive for his squad, which will compete in one of the toughest Class A sectionals in the state at the end of the season.
“We have to play teams like Washington to get ready for our sectional, and I can’t think of a better team to play for us. They play hard, they are extremely well coached, it’s just a good game for us to play,” said Knepp.
Washington claimed the JV contest 44-18. Emily Mahan led WHS with seven points, while Sydnie Reed topped ND with 10 points.
Washington returns to action with a trip to Pike Central on Thursday, while North Daviess is scheduled to host Orleans on Tuesday.
