GREENFIELD — With every player from a 14-7 squad returning for 2014-15 – including one of the state’s top-rated underclassmen – the Greenfield-Central girls could be poised to face Indiana’s best competition at season’s end.
At a minimum, they’ll face different competition.
Veteran G-C coach Doug Laker completed a revamp this summer of the team’s schedule in part for preparation for what he hopes is a deep Class 4A tournament run.
Gone from the Cougars’ schedule are 2A schools Cambridge City Lincoln (10-9 last season) and Knightstown (18-5), 3As Rushville (19-5) and Lebanon (17-6) and 4A Richmond (11-11). In their place: 4A foes Westfield (17-7), Plainfield (14-7), Hamilton Southeastern (12-10), Indianapolis North Central (11-8) and Lafayette Jeff (1-20). And, as part of two additional games allowed by IHSAA beginning this winter, the Cougars have added a Thanksgiving holiday tourney to go along with the Christmas break tourney they created last season.
