Sectional tips off Tuesday night



In the second game Tuesday night, host Loogootee (3-18) will play rival Barr-Reeve (15-3) for the opportunity to face North Daviess (16-3) in the semifinals. The two teams met Dec. 27 and the Vikings came away with a 57-27 victory in front of their home fans at Kavanaugh Kourt.

The Lions will be playing a tough team in the No. 6 Vikings, but Barr-Reeve is coming off two straight losses to stiff competition in North Knox (48-29) and Vincennes Rivet (50-43).

“Our record isn’t really indicative of the growth that we have made in some areas that we want to improve on,” said Loogootee coach Chad Wade. “There have been a few games that the score indicated that we may not have finished the way we would have liked, but for the most part our kids are still playing hard and trying to come together to do the right things to have some success.”

The Lions are led by senior forward Christina Ziegler, but she will have her hands full against a front line for Barr-Reeve that includes senior Tracy Graber. Wade said that the first game was difficult, but his team has grown a lot since their late December game.

“If you look back at the first game, we were tied I believe after the first quarter and in the second quarter we had some turnover issues that ultimately hurt ourselves,” Wade said. “We got a little down on ourselves and stopped competing a little bit. We have been trying to get our girls that understand that the game is 32-minutes long and that’s what we need to understand if we’re going to be successful with as young as we are.”

Barr-Reeve didn’t get the most favorable match up possible as it faces the host school Tuesday night and if it wants to get through Saturday night and win a sectional championship, it will have to defeat the other two sectional favorites in North Daviess and Vincennes Rivet.
