Girls sectional draw announced

Lady Hatchets take Jasper in first round; Cougars, Vikings face off

WASHINGTON — Anticipation is not the word to describe girls basketball Class 3A and A sectionals once the tournament gets underway at Jasper and Barr-Reeve next week.

Washington (14-5) plays Jasper (11-9) in the second game in the opening night next Tuesday. Barr-Reeve (14-4) and North Daviess (15-4) meet in the second game on the same night at Barr-Reeve.

At Jasper, Heritage Hills (10-9) and Mitchell (12-5) open the Class 3A tournament with the Hatchets and Wildcats closing the opening round.

Pike Central (4-16) awaits the game one winner to open Friday’s second round, while Vincennes Lincoln (6-13) meets either Washington or Jasper in the evening’s second game.

Shoals (4-14) and Loogootee (2-16) meet in the Tuesday Class A opener at Barr-Reeve with the Vikings and Cougars playing the second game.

Vincennes Rivet (16-4) awaits to meet the first-game winner to open Friday’s round, with the Vikings or Cougars then set to play Washington Catholic (2-18) in the second game.

Friday winners at both sites then meet Saturday for the respective class championships on Saturday.

Washington coach Gretchen Miles was not having any discussion of the meeting with the Wildcats being a sectional championship game. Washington, Jasper, who has won the last three Class 3A titles, and Mitchell would appear to be entering the sectional as the likely best of the field.

Jasper defeated Washington, 45-44, at Hatchet House, Dec. 11. The Hatchets defeated Mitchell, 65-49, one week ago at the Hatchet House.

Miles did note that if there was a game her team would like to have back, it was the game with the Wildcats. At the same time, she believes the tournament is available to anyone in the field.

“If you compare the ballclubs, I think all of the games will be very competitive,” Miles said. “Jasper is the defending champion, and they would still be the favorite with wins in the last three years. I think you have to look at the tournament for the team that plays the best that particular night.”
