It's just not right to keep calling Snider's Meredith Shipman a freshman.
In soccer and basketball, she doesn't play like one and because of her experience already in high school, she just doesn't seem like one.
The 5-foot-9 Shipman helped lead the Panthers to the girls soccer state championship game in the fall and came up big for the girls basketball team Friday in the East Noble Class 4A Sectional semifinals. Shipman scored all 10 of her points in the second quarter, which helped the Panthers pull away for a 28-17 halftime advantage.
She finished with eight rebounds and several deflections and steals on defense.
"She was the leading scorer (20 goals, 9 assists) on a team that finished second in the state (with a 2-0 loss to Cathedral)," Snider coach Ryan Gould said of Shipman. "She has been in big games, and she is not intimidated. She just doesn't really think about it, and she just goes out and plays. Her experience from soccer really paid off tonight. She was loose, and just did her thing."
