“We’re hard to scout because you never know who is going to be our leading scorer from one game to the next or who will make the big 3-pointer,” Johnson said. “We’ve got good balance inside and outside. We’ve got great ballhandlers. They’ve bought in more and more as the season has gone along. And it’s always nice to have good players.”
Playing at nearby North Judson could be an advantage for the Winamac as Woodlan has to travel about 120 miles from the northeast Fort Wayne area.
“We’ve had great fans all year that have fought through the weather and were there for us,” Johnson said.
Winamac won its 20th sectional title overall but the first in 12 years.
Winamac is facing a Woodlan team that recorded its first sectional title in 17 years with a 71-67 win over Fort Wayne Canterbury on Monday.
Greg White scored 18 points, Kadin Gerig had 17, Jaylin Bennett had 15 and Jeffery Jones added 12 for Woodlan.
Bennett is a 6-foot-5 Indiana State football recruit. Gerig is a 6-3 sharpshooter.
All four teams in the regional field have the Warriors nickname. Winamac fans are hoping it is their Warriors that come out on top, just like they did against Pioneer at the regional in football.
