Logan girls claim 3rd straight all-sports title

Logansport’s girls athletes once again rule the North Central Conference.

The Berries won the girls all-sports title for the third year in a row. They have now won the honor four times since claiming their first-ever title in 2008.

This year’s final standings could not have been closer, as Logan scored 62.5 points to edge out Huntington North (62) by a half of a point. Marion was third (57.5), followed by Muncie Central (48.5), Kokomo (47.5), Richmond (44.5) and Anderson (35.5).

“It’s exciting to know that your program is the best throughout the year,” said Logansport athletic director Greg Fisher, who is retiring this month. “It shows a lot of effort on a lot of people’s parts.”

The Berries won despite winning just two conference championships: girls basketball and gymnastics.

Fisher noted that softball and girls tennis both tied for second this spring, which was necessary for the Berries to win the overall title.

“To win an all-sports award requires all 10 teams to participate at a high level,” he said. “Overall the program competed very well. Sometimes we lose sight of that. You’re not going to win everything all the time but competition is important and the will to compete is important.”

In addition to the NCC championships in girls basketball and gymnastics, Logansport placed second in girls cross country, tied for second in girls tennis and softball, was third in girls swimming, tied for third in girls soccer and volleyball, was fourth in girls track and placed fifth in girls golf.

Kokomo won the boys all-sports title with 68.5 points, followed by Richmond (58), Huntington North (56), Marion (52), Muncie Central (44), Logan (43) and Anderson (38.5).

Logan placed second in wrestling, tied for second in boys tennis, was third in boys cross country, tied for third in baseball, tied for fourth in boys soccer, was fifth in boys swimming, tied for fifth in football, placed sixth in boys golf and was seventh in boys basketball and boys track.

Huntington North won the overall all-sports title with 118 points, followed by Kokomo (116), Marion (109.5), Logan (105.5), Richmond (102.5), Muncie Central (92.5) and Anderson (74).

In the all-sports standings, nine points are awarded for a first-place finish, seven for second, six for third, five for fourth, four for fifth, three for sixth and two for seventh. Ties split the points.
