Spartan girls take matchup of conference leaders

JOURNAL GAZETTE

The pride of the Summit Athletic and Northern Lakes conferences tussled Tuesday at the Tiger Den in Warsaw, with SAC-leading Homestead, the top-ranked squad in Class 4A, handing Warsaw, which had secured at least a tie for the NLC crown on Saturday, a 59-46 defeat.

UConn commit Ayanna Patterson led the Spartans (18-1) with 30 points, with Ali Stephens knocking down five 3-pointers as part of her 17-point night. Kacilyn Krebs also hit five triples for Warsaw, finishing with a team-high 17.

After claiming their first conference title since 2013, the Tigers (14-6) will look to close out a perfect league season Saturday against Concord.

ANGOLA 51, WESTVIEW 25: In Angola, the Hornets held the Warriors to single-digit outputs in all four quarters. Freshman Lexi Stillman scored 13 as Angola (13-8, 6-3 NECC) knocked off Westview for the eighth straight time.

FAIRFIELD 42, CENTRAL NOBLE 25: In Benton, the Falcons matched NECC unbeaten Garrett with their seventh conference victory of the season, holding the Cougars to their second-lowest offensive output this year. Central Noble now stands at 11-8 overall, 5-3 in league play.

NORWELL 58, JAY COUNTY 53: In Ossian, the Knights trailed 19-7 after one quarter before rallying in a matchup of top-10 teams in Class 3A. Renna Schwieterman scored a game-high 22 points for No. 5 Jay County (16-3), but No. 7 Norwell (16-4) used a 14-4 run to close the first half.

Kennedy Fuelling scored 19 to lead the Knights, who ended the Patriots’ 13-game win streak.

HUNTINGTON NORTH 68, CANTERBURY 37: At Canterbury, the Vikings shot 89.5% (17 of 19) after halftime and 71% (27 of 38) for the game.

Will Hotchkiss led a trio in double figures for Huntington North (9-5) with 16 points, while Luke Schlabach scored 11 off the bench for the Cavaliers (2-9).

BELLMONT 74, HERITAGE 73: In Decatur, Isaiah Wellman drained five 3s as part of a 20-point night, leading five Braves in double figures. Bellmont (8-5) led by 10 after one quarter before Heritage (2-8) rallied, thanks in large part to a game-high 32 points from Luke Saylor.
