Even though both teams are in the Big East Conference, this game counted as a nonconference contest because it was added to both squads’ schedules. The game was the regular-season finale for HGHS and Elkhart.

The Tigers, ranked No. 10 in last week’s Associated Press Division 4 poll, is 19-3 heading into the playoffs. The Resorters are 8-14 going into the postseason.

Junior forward Sam Yancy scored 13 of her game-high 18 points in the first half to spark the Tigers’ offense. Yancy also grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds.

Yancy and Addi Gerber led in blocked shots with two each.

Camrie Schmitz led Elkhart in scoring with eight. Schmitz, Maddie Schneider and Kianna Bahr had a team-high two assists apiece.

Schmitz had a team-best four steals, followed by Sonia Schubert with three. Elkhart didn’t have any rebounders with more than four.

“Our focus this game was on our defense as this is something we want to be at our strongest heading into the postseason,” said Tiger head coach Heidi Georgeff.

“This game was a nice opportunity to get some junior varsity kids varsity minutes for the scenarios where they might be put in during the tournament. I thought overall we played our game and took care of the ball,” she said.

“In this game we were looking to work on things and get ready for the regionals coming up. We were able to get playing time for everyone and we had some JV players that received some minutes as well,” said Resorter head coach Donny Kulow.

“Howards Grove is a very good team and a solid defensive team. Friday their offense was outstanding and their ball movement kept us off balance on defense.”
