Senior night for Lady Berries

It’s a special night for Logansport’s girls basketball team tonight as the Lady Berries are hosting Twin Lakes for senior night at the Berry Bowl.

The night was earlier scheduled to be a boys-girls doubleheader but South Bend Career Academy called Thursday to cancel the boys game. The academy is a charter school that was started in 2011. Its boys basketball team has struggled this season against mostly other charter and small schools.

The Logan-Twin Lakes girls game will have a 6 p.m. JV start time followed by the senior night festivities and varsity game at 7:30 p.m.

Logan senior Whitney Jennings has had one of the best four-year careers not only in Logansport history but state history as well.

The 5-foot-6 point guard is currently 10th all-time in state history in scoring (2,304 points) and fifth in assists (606). Her 353 career steals leave her 24 shy of joining the top 10 in that category, according to

This season she leads the state in scoring (32.9 ppg), is sixth in assists (6.8 apg) and seventh in steals (5.5 spg). She’s also averaging a career-high 8.4 rebounds per game.

The Iowa-bound Jennings was snubbed on being named a McDonald’s All-American earlier this week even though she’s put up all of her impressive numbers playing at Class 4A Logansport in historically one of the best basketball conferences in the nation, the North Central Conference.

While Jennings gets a lot of the pub, it’s easy for her teammates to sometimes be overshadowed while contributing to a team that has been ranked in the top 20 all season. Classmates Katrina Neuendorf and Samantha Kain will also be honored tonight.

“They’ve done a great job for us,” Logan coach Jerry Hoover said. “They’ve done a great job for us all the way up. I told Neuendorf when she was a freshman she was thinking about swimming and I told her and her mother that if she stuck with it I think she has a chance of playing at the next level and it’s proven out. She is being looked at some Division III schools and I think well-deserved because she can shoot, she’s athletic and she’s an Indiana basketball player.
