Lady Warriors pick up road win

Cass, Caston, Pioneer fall in close contests

Culver’s girls basketball team has a young, talented and tall group under the tutelage of first-year coach Gina Hierlmeier, the former coach at West Central.

But Tuesday night the Winamac Warriors were able to surge ahead of the Cavaliers in the second half and hold on for a solid 44-38 victory on the road.

“It was a whale of a game for us because they’re a good team,” Winamac coach Jeff Wagner said.

Jessica Schramm, who led the Warriors (2-0) with 16 points, hit a 3-pointer to open the second half to give Winamac a 19-16 lead, and they never trailed the rest of the way.

A Schramm three-point play gave the Warriors a 29-26 lead going into the fourth quarter.

The lead got as big as 38-31 after two Stephanie Shorter free throws with 2:43 remaining.

But Culver (1-1) cut the lead to 40-38 on a Kayla Shaffer 3-pointer with :25 left.

Bethany Brogdon then broke Culver’s press and was shoved to the ground, and Culver was called for an intentional foul. Brogdon hit both free throws with :12 left, and Schramm hit two more freebies to cap the scoring.

Brogdon finished with 14 points, and Shorter had 12 points and eight rebounds. Whitney Hook chipped in five assists and five rebounds, and Megan Ruff added two points and six boards.

Winamac trailed 16-8 in the first half before ending the half with an 8-0 run over the final 4:52.

The Warriors’ offensive execution was sharper in the second half when they scored 28 points.

“I think we were a little more under control,” Wagner said. “We started the game, we were a little over the top, we were kind of out of control. We got those two early fouls on our starters [Shorter and Hook].”

The Warriors went with their starting lineup the entire second half. Shorter picked up her fourth foul with 4:01 remaining but was able to avoid a fifth.

“We’re going to get some people back here after a while, so we’re going to have the ability to maybe put some bigger people inside there and help Shorter and Ruff out a little bit,” Wagner said.

Winamac shot 16 of 17 from the foul line including 11 of 11 in the second half.

Shaffer led the Cavaliers with 17 points, and Tatum Schultz added 10.

“I really like our defense matched up against with what they had going on inside,” Wagner said. “They were trying to feed the ball to the [Mickella] Hardy girl. I’m very happy with the way we played there.

“The Hardy girl is still coming back from an ACL, so they’ll be better by the end of the year, they’ll be a lot better. They’ll have a good chance at a sectional.”

Culver is now in Class A, so the two rivals, who had memorable matchups in sectional play in recent years, won’t meet again this season.

Winamac hosts Rensselaer Friday.
