Must read

(WNDU) – The Indiana High School Athletic Association announced semi-state pairings for the girls basketball state tournament on Sunday afternoon.

For the second year in a row, the semi-state round next Saturday, Feb. 17, features two semifinal games in the early part of the day, followed by a championship game at night. The pairings were determined by a lottery-style draw.

Four teams from our viewing area will play in the semi-state round after winning regional championships on Saturday. They include Bremen (3A), Caston (1A), Marquette Catholic (1A), and NorthWood (3A).

Bremen, who is playing in its first semi-state in 38 years, will face NorthWood in the second semifinal game at Huntington North. The Panthers, who are four years removed from winning a state title, are making their 12th semi-state appearance.

Caston will play in its first semi-state in program history against Marquette Catholic in the second semifinal game at Frankfort.
