Sectional tips off Tuesday night


Washington defeated Vincennes Lincoln, Nov. 26 (46-34), Jasper, Dec. 17 (50-45), Heritage Hills, Dec. 27 (61-47) and Pike Central, Jan. 9 (58-19).

“I think when you take a look at the field, it is very competitive,” Miles said. “I think as the first round goes, the toughest game would be Jasper and Southridge, because I think that was a two-point win for Southridge early in the year. The thing about Pike Central (3-18) is while their its record doesn’t show it, they play a tough schedule and when we played them early on in the year, we played them on a Thursday and they didn’t practice the entire week because of bad weather. No matter what the score was during the year, you have to prepare for every team the same way.”

Washington is hoping to have as close to a clean bill of health. Lupe Perez, Carrie Lane and Shawna Webb were out of the lineup Saturday on Senior Night in the Hatchets’ 40-34 loss to North Knox. Miles is hopeful two of the three will be back to face Pike Central.

“Carrie (Lane) has a contusion on her forearm, which is a deep bone bruise, but she will be out this week and hopefully get her back in the swing of things on Saturday,” Miles said. “Lupe (Perez) is doing a lot of strength training and therapy with her ankle this week. Hopefully she’ll be back in the swing of things again Saturday or Monday. Both are projected to be ready when it comes to sectional time. Shawna (Webb) has a concussion and of course, you have to go through the school protocol with the trainer, give her the impact test and go through different drills in different situations and there are so many other things to get off the checklist first. We want to make sure she is completely OK.”
