Improved Berries shooting for regional title

Improved Berries shooting for regional title


Bullard, a 5-9 junior, is a volleyball standout and has good athleticism. As does Kennedy Curl, the daughter of Logan legend John Curl, who played on the 1991 state champion baseball team and nearly played in the Major Leagues. Just a sophomore, Curl has worked her way into the starting lineup with strong defensive play and rebounding.

Curl, Katrina Neuendorf and Karli Armstrong have all been defensive standouts at guard throughout the year. Jennings, Neuendorf and Sam Kain are the three seniors on the team. Kain plays good defense inside and boxes out well, an area that has been a focus throughout the year. Kain also has had some big putback baskets down the stretch.

Freshman Madison Dalton has worked her way into the starting lineup. Her shooting has improved as the year has gone along and she nailed four 3-pointers that were big in the sectional win over Harrison.

The Berries are facing a Carroll team that was the surprise winner of Sectional 5. The Chargers enter having won five games in a row and seven of their last eight. Their only loss during that time was to Eastern Noble, which they avenged in the sectional final.

Eastern Noble had two 6-foot-1 players that led it to a hard-fought 59-54 win over Fort Wayne Snider in the sectional semifinal despite 33 points from Deja Wimby. Carroll then dropped Eastern Noble 65-49 in the final.

Carroll is led in scoring by 5-6 junior Madison Peterson (14.3 ppg) and 5-11 sophomore Kierstin Murphy (10.9 ppg) and led in rebounding by 6-2 sophomore Jacqueline Quade (6.5 rpg) and 6-foot senior Sara Stilwell (5.8). Beth Schaefer, a 5-9 junior, adds 6.7 ppg and 5.2 rpg. Peterson scored 22 points, Murphy had 16 and Schaefer had 14 in the sectional win over East Noble. Stilwell had nine boards and Schaefer added eight.

Carroll started the season 3-11 before beginning its current run with a win over Warsaw.
