Winamac's Shorter scores 1,000th point in loss to TL

Caston girls roll; Winamac boys fall against Twin Lakes.

Winamac came up short in losing to Twin Lakes 56-53 in girls basketball action in Monticello on Thursday.

The Warriors had the ball with less then five seconds left, but couldn’t convert as the final was 56-53.

“We had a chance to steal one on Twin Lakes’ senior night,” Winamac coach Jeff Wagner said. “But with a couple of good looks in by the basket with under five seconds on the clock, and trailing by one, we came up just short. We got beat on the boards, and gave up to many second chance shots that in the end sealed our fate. The girls knew we cannot give up 56 points in many games and win, but we did see some positives on the defensive end of the floor, which we will be able to use as we go into sectionals.”

Twin Lakes (8-9) outrebounded Winamac 26-19, which nine of those for the Indians were offensive rebounds.

The Warriors (8-6) hadn’t played for nearly a week, and Wagner was pleased with the girls effort.

“I was happy with our effort after being off for six days, and getting one practice in before this game due to the weather. Our condition did not play a factor in this game, and the girls looked pretty sharp all things considered. I think everyone was happy to just be playing again.”

One bright spot for Winamac was Stephanie Shorter scoring her 1,000th point. Shorter led the Warriors with 20 points in the contest. Bethany Brogdon added a double-double with 10 points and 10 assists, and Ali Larkin added 10 points.

Winamac travels to Frontier on Saturday afternoon.
