Winamac 47, Knox 40


Stephanie Shorter scored 27 points to lead the Class 2A No. 7 Warriors to a win at Knox.

“I was happy with the way we worked through some adversity early in the game, and in the second have as well, and hitting free throws down the stretch just added to my pleasure,” Winamac coach Jeff Wagner said. “It was the tale of two halves from the free throw line, after going 3 for 9 in the first half, the girls were able to go 21 for 25 in the second half. That was essentially the ballgame.”

Bethany Brogdon scored eight points and Jessica Schramm added six for Winamac (11-2). Whitney Hook pulled down nine rebounds.
