PostyourT all-star games


Some area players participated in the PostyourT All-Star basketball games Saturday in Crawfordsville.

Class 4A Girls: East 72, West 50

The East girls bolted to a 31-22 lead at halftime and expanded their lead in the second half.

Four girls from the East scored in double figures. Leading the way was Kaylee Walters from Snider with 19 points, followed by 15 points from Warsaw's Kelci Freds and 11 points each from Kelsey Bryant of Greenfield-Central and Taylor Ford of Warren Central.

Walters also won the three-point shooting contest and captured the MVP award.

"I wasn't coming into this game looking to score a lot of points," Walters said. "I just wanted to have a lot of fun, which I did. It was great winning all three – the game, the three-point contest, and MVP. Only five girls showed up for practice, but we played really well together as a team. I'm going to IUPUI to study health services management. It's kind of iffy now as to whether I'll play ball there or not."

Class 2A Boys: East 79, West 77

The East boys raced to a 45-30 halftime lead, but the West staged a comeback to take the lead 71-70 with a little over two minutes left. With the West clinging to a 77-76 lead, Taylor Wischmeier of Brownstown Central buried a 3-pointer with 12.5 seconds left in the game to give the East a two-point lead, and the West's final shot missed the mark.

Taylor Wischmeier and Austin's Benjamin Raichel led the East in scoring with 12 points each, and South Adams' Nick Teeter and Pete Nicksic from Andrean added 11 points apiece.

The West's Phillip Titus from Indianapolis Washington took game-high scoring honors with 15 points. Teammates Mitchell Patton of South Knox with 13 points and Forest Park's Colin Welp with 12 points also reached double figures.

Teeter won the three-point shooting contest and Taylor Wischmeier was named MVP.
