Sectional tips off Tuesday night

After one of the most competitive seasons in recent memory, the girls’ basketball postseason begins Tuesday night.

Barr-Reeve, North Daviess, Washington Catholic and Loogootee are all trying to dethrone defending sectional champion Vincennes Rivet at Loogootee, while Washington is attempting to win its first sectional since 2004 at Vincennes Lincoln.

Class 3A Sectional 31 Washington-Pike Central

No. 10 Washington (16-3) enter the final game of the regular season today against Evansville Harrison. The Hatchets have netted their most wins in a season since winning their last sectional championship in 2004, when they compiled an 18-6 record.

Ally Hunsinger has led the Washington offense all season and along with fellow senior Audra Stallman and Cheyenne Jones, the Hatchets have a formidale front line capable of competing with anyone.

“The kids have done a great job throughout the season, using each game as a building block to get ready for tournament play,” said Washington coach Gretchen Miles. “I think the tight game situations that we have been in throughout the year (against very good competition) will help us when it comes to tournament time. Every coach will tell you that every team is back at 0-0 and what you did during the season doesn’t matter. On each game night, you have to be the best team on the floor.”

In the first game of the Vincennes Lincoln sectional Tuesday, the host Alices’ will play Heritage Hills at 7 p.m. and the winner will play Mitchell, Friday at 6 p.m. in the semifinals. Wednesday at 6 p.m., Southridge (12-5) plays Jasper and the winner will face the victor of the Washington-Pike Central game. Washington has lost to Jasper (11-8) in three of the last four sectional’s, including in last year’s first round, 47-46. One advantage the Hatchets have this year is that they have beaten every team in the sectional field, except for Southridge, who they did not play.
