MARION — After a rigorous holiday schedule, it appears Logansport’s girls basketball team has turned the corner and is gathering momentum towards home stretch of the season.

The Class 4A No. 5 Berries stomped Marion 60-30 Friday night to take a big step towards another North Central Conference championship.

The Berries improved to 16-1 and 5-0 in the NCC with the win. They host Richmond next Friday night for a chance of winning at least a share of the conference crown. They have now won 12 NCC games in a row after running the table last year.
