Winamac boys beat Knox for 3rd win in a row

Welch sets Cass career wins record in wrestling.

Winamac’s boys basketball team recorded its second win over Knox in nine days with a 60-36 win Saturday night in Winamac.

The Warriors (3-3) won their third game in a row and are back at .500. Knox dropped to 0-8.

“I’m pretty pleased with the effort. Twelve guys played tonight. I’m still trying to feel out the best combinations on the floor,” Winamac coach Kyle Johnson said. “We won the war on the boards convincingly (28-19) and that really helped us.”

Parker Fox led the Warriors with 21 points, eight rebounds, three steals and three assists. He was 8 of 10 from the field. Six of his eight rebounds were on the offensive glass.

“I felt like he got a lot of that in the second half. He was in foul trouble in the first half. Once again he brings a great deal of energy. The number that impressed me the most was he had nine deflections tonight. When you have a bunch of deflections that helps your team,” Johnson said.

Colin McGee added eight points and eight boards for Winamac. Dalton Button had eight points. Adam Gruenig scored six, Levi Schultz had five and Jeremy Bentle added four.

Curt Scherer led Knox with 12 points. Jordan Anderson added nine points and six boards.

Winamac hosts North Judson and Argos next weekend.

Caston 42, Clinton C. 27

The Comets bounced back from a tough overtime loss to West Central with a 15-point win in Michigantown.

Caston improved to 8-5, while Clinton Central dropped to 3-9.

The final score was a bit deceiving as Caston led 41-12 after three quarters before going to the bench in the fourth.

Anna Brown led Caston with 15 points and Mickayla Rans had 11. Marli Leazenby scored eight and Jaycee Denton added six.
