Luers gets another challenge from West Central Conference

INDIANAPOLIS – Bishop Luers found a challenge from a team in the West Central Conference for the second straight season, but the Knights also got another state championship.

The Knights beat North Putnam 26-14 for the Class 2A state championship Friday, one year after taking out Monrovia 24-17 in the finals.

Both teams are from the same league, with the Cougars winning the conference title and beating Monrovia twice this season.

It was the first state championship appearance for both North Putnam and Monrovia.

The Cougars have yet to win a state title in any sport, while Luers has nine state football championships, five girls basketball state titles, two boys basketball state titles and a baseball state title.
