G-C girls close out regular season in style

Follow Daily Reporter:

The Greenfield-Central girls basketball team won for the seventh time in eight tries Friday night, downing Whiteland 50-23 in its regular-season finale.

The Cougars jumped out to a 32-5 halftime advantage.

“I’m happy with the way the kids played. They played hard and they played with intensity,” G-C coach Doug Laker said. “They put the game away in the second quarter. It was a solid effort on everybody’s part.”

Whiteland fell to 1-19 on the year.

Madison Wise scored 17 points, and has now scored in double figures in all 19 games of her freshman season. She added 10 rebounds — good for her 11th double-double — and six blocks.

Regan Lewis also notched her third double-double of the year, tallying 17 points (10-of-12 from the foul line) and securing 10 rebounds.

Shelby Oldham added eight points and four assists.

The Cougars (14-6) open Sectional 9 play Tuesday at Connersville against Mt. Vernon (15-4) in a rematch of a game G-C won 47-38 on Jan. 24. That win ended MV’s 31-game Hoosier Heritage Conference winning streak.

“It’s an opportunity to play a great program and a great team,” Laker said. “Our goal is to win the sectional, not just beat Mt. Vernon. We’re going into it to win the sectional. It’s going to be a great game.”
