On Sunday evening, the Lady Warriors gathered for a physically distanced watch-party to view the IHSAA Tournament Pairings Show to learn who they will open with in the State Tournament. The draw: a first round bye to face the winner of Park Tudor (11-4) and the host Cascade (15-4).
Covenant (8-11, 1-3) will play in their opening game next Friday, February 5th at 7:30pm in Sectional #43. Prior to their game, Western Boone (3-17) and University (8-3) will face off for their chance to advance to the championship game, which will take place the following day at 7pm at Cascade High School.
Last year’s tournament was hosted by Western Boone High School and yielded Covenant’s 6th consecutive Sectional title. The Lady Warriors first had to upset the #2 ranked in 2A University Trailblazer’s, 54-48. They then went on to beat Western Boone, 63-35, to win the program’s 10th sectional title. Covenant’s season came to an end last year against the #1 ranked Triton Central Tigers, 49-66.
The winner of Sectional #43 will play in Regional #11 at Southmont High School. Tickets for sectionals are limited to family members only, but there will be a livestream through the IHSAA Champions Network. Stay tuned for more information.
The Lady Warriors will finish the regular season this week as they take on Guerin Catholic on Thursday and Bethesda on Friday. Covenant defeated Beech Grove last evening, 60-44.
