Liberty Christian sprints by Bloomfield for Class A title

Jeff Robison

   The Liberty Christian Lions had never reached the state championship stage before, but they made their debut memorable. The Lions raced home on an 18-0 sprint to finally pull away from the Bloomfield Cardinals for a 64-45 victory in the IHSAA Class 1A state championship game on Saturday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

   Lions senior Greg Dixon sparked the breakaway with a layup and blocked shot starting at the 6:29 mark of the final quarter, after Bloomfield had realized getting back to a 44-43 deficit, following Liberty going up by 12 points (40-28) to start the second half.

   Teammates Franklin Nunn and Ronny Williams kept pace with baskets, steals, and rebounds as the Cardinals faded. Bloomfield’s Brandon Van Sant ended the Liberty Christian run with a dunk, but that came with just 36 seconds left on the clock.

   Bloomfield trailed almost the whole way, but the Cardinals were able to keep within one or two possessions during that time, trailing by four at the first two quarter breaks and three (44-41) after the third quarter break.

   Van Sant carried his team’s offensive load, with some help from inside help from Eli Combs and perimeter help from Zach Skinner. However, Skinner’s success rate went by the wayside late, allowing the Lions athletic edge to cement the victory for the Anderson-based school.

   Nunn and Van Sant tied for game-high honors at 19 points. But, three more Liberty players reached double figures as Caleb Hardy had 14, Dixon 12, and Williams 10. Meanwhile, the Cardinals could get just one more player to that plateau, with Combs hitting 10 points.

   Combs did receive a measure of consolation, however, as he was awarded the Ray Craft Mental Attitude Award during postgame festivities.

    Liberty Christian finished its title run with a 26-4 record, as did the state runner up Bloomfield.

Lapel Takes Sting Out Of Howe For Class 2A Crown

Jeff Robison

INDIANAPOLIS-The Lapel Bulldogs made it two-for-two for Madison County in the day session of the IHSAA State Championships on Saturday, as the Bulldogs jumped on Indianapolis T. C. Howe for a 33-15 halftime lead and rolled to the Class 2A title by a final score.

Lapel junior JonRoss Richardson had no match in the paint from the Hornets, as he generated 13 points before halftime, and a double-double for the game.

Meanwhile, the defense employed by coach Jimmie Howell’s squad limied Howe to 6 of 28 shots in the first half. Most importantly, Lapel frustrated Howe’s big stinger Brian Warren into 1-of-10 shots during first half action.

Howe had no answers after the break either, as Lapel’s advantage swelled with the game’s length.

Richardson led everyone with his 21 points and 11 rebounds, with much of his work done on the offensive glass. The Bulldogs ruled the paint to build up their lead, also thanks to Tristan Carpenter, who came in with 12 points and nine boards, and Preston Scott, who provided nine more points in the paint. Senior guard Kamron Herrington also had double figures with 11 points for Lapel.

Warren ended the day with 5-of-19 shooting, scoring a Howe team-high of eleven points along the way. No other Hornet had more than six points for the day.

After the game, Warren was named winner of the Ray Craft Mental Attitude Award for Class 2A.

Lapel captured its second state championship, and first Class 2A crown, ending the year at 26-4. Howe concluded the year at 23-8 in its first IHSAA State Finals appearance.

 Jac-Cen-Del battled through Charles A TIndley in the Regional, through Vincennes Rivet in the Semi-State just to get to the Class 1A State finals where they let their frustrations out on Argos.

  The Southern part of the state was considered the stronger of the two parts of the state and it came into plain, clear sight at Banker's Life Field House on Saturday afternoon.

 The Eagles of Jac-Cen-Del shot 40% percent for the game and held Argos to 22.4% percent. Jac-Cen-Del scored 24 points in the paint to Argos' 14 and the Eagles bench outscored the Dragons' eight to three.

  For the Class 1A Champion Eagles, sophomore Lily Simon scored 16 followed by versatile Jordan Day's 12 points and four assists. Rosie Newhart and freshman Mariah Day adding eight. Hayley Bruns scored seven. 

  Argos was led by senior Courtney Dunlap's 18 while no other Lady Dragon tallied double figure scoring.

  Jac-Cen-Del's Abby Wagner was the Patricia L Roy Mental Attitude Award Class 1A Award winner

Class 2A | Lafayette Central Catholic (25-5)   56  Covenant Christian (23-6)  43

 Knights Conqour Warriors

 The morning session closed with LCC winning their first 2A Class championship as they downed a very competitive Covenant Christian squad.

  Most of the focus coming into the tilt was likely on LCC senior Cameron Onken, who helped lead the Lady Knights to last year's state 1A championship but as Covenant Christian found out, it was good in theory but not in reality.

   Onken tied up CC's best player junior Racehl McLimore on the defensive end of the court allowing Libby Bonner, a six footer sophomore dominate the paint with 16 points and thirteen rebounds and left open freshman Lexi Thompson to bomb away and draw out CC's defenders, inevitably securing the win.

    Onken had a off night shooting from outside, as Cameron went five of 16, including two of four outside the arc but Onken went aggresive to the basket and can nine of twelve free throws while recording nine rebounds to go along with her 21 total points.

    Onken was backed by Bonner's 16 and Thompson's 12.

    Senior Kaitlyn Luikart led Covenant Christian with 15 while Rachel McLimore added 14.

    Cameron Onken was the Class 2A Patricia L Roy Mental Attitude Award winner

Class 3A Heritage Christian (26-4) 51   North Harrison (28-3)  45

 Eagles Escape Cougars Bite

 Heritage Christian High School were absent from the state finals from  2010 through 2013 in any class. The Eagles have made up for that time with two state championships in 2014 and 2015 in Class 2A and adding their first in Class 3A in their first attempt.

 If anyone thought HC was going to wallop North Harrison, boy were they in for a eye-opening experience as the Lady Cats didn't roll over and play dead.

 One Eagle soared above every player on the court as Tyasha Harris was simply unstoppable during large stages of the game.

 Harris was nine of fifteen from the field, including a one for two from behind the arc while going eight of nine from the free throw line, while adding four rebounds and tying team-mate junior DaShawna Harper's seven steals in 30 minutes of action all in front of Purdue Head Coach Sharon Versyp, among several D1 coaches in attendance.

  Harper added ten points and seven steals while Katlyn Gilbert scored eight points, hauled in eleven rebounds and added four steals while Darby Foresman scored six points.

   Heritage Christian claimed nineteen team steals and only 12 turnovers.

   For North Harrison, playing without sophomore Cali Nolot, the Cats just maxed their efforts on the Fever home court.

   Freshman Lily Hatton just brought it all day and ended her day with 11 points, seven total rebounds and tying Ta'Shia Phillips state finals record with eight (8) blocks. Senior Carly Burson added ten points on five of thirteen shooting and five boards while team-mate junior Stevie Burns added nine points and six boards and four steals.

   The game was decided by turn-overs with HC compiling 12 of them while North Harrison committed 23 turn-overs.

    The Patricia L Roy Mental Attitude Award winner was North Harrison's Carlie Burson.

Class 4A  Penn (28-2) 68  Columbus North (27-2)  48

 Kingsmen Take Bite Out of Bulldogs

 Penn's Lady Kingsmen claimed their first state title as they downed Columbus North, last year's school state Class 4A state champions, by unleashing a gnawing, bone biting bite out of the Bulldogs in the third quarter with a 24 to nine advantage.

  Leigh recruit, senior Camryn Buhr was steady from start to finish as she hit eight of twelve shots, seven of seven from the free throw line and adding seven total rebounds for 24 points. Senior Kaitlyn Marenyi, who didn't play in the first game against CN at Christmas time scored 21 points with three steals while hitting seven of ten field goal attempts. Lindsy Kline added 11 points for Kristi Ulrich's team.

  Junior Maliah Howard-Bass scored eleven points while sophomore Imani Guy led the Bulldogs with 13 points and recording 12 rebounds.

  Senior Elle Williams grabbed 12 rebounds and scored eight points while senior team-mate Paige Littrell scored eight points.

  The Patricia L Roy Mental Attitude Award winner was presented to Columbus North's Paige Littrell.
