Weather again played havoc with boys’ and girls’ basketball schedules last week, in the middle of a week already scrambled by Sectional action for the girls’ teams. Nearly all Thursday night games were postponed or cancelled.
Saturday afternoon action saw Riverton Parke fall to Crawfordsville 77-48; Parke Heritage took a 57-50 loss from West Vigo; Attica topped Southmont 47-33; Covington beat Covenant Christian 72-56; Fountain Central topped South Newton 57-36; and Seeger beat Frontier 68-41.
Games scheduled for last night (Tuesday, February 5) included Fountain Central at South Vermillion; Northview at North Vermillion; and Seeger at Faith Christian.
Friday’s schedule includes Parke Heritage hosting Fountain Central; Riverton Parke hosting North Vermillion; Seeger visiting Covington; and South Vermillion traveling to Attica. Saturday will see Shakamak at Riverton Parke; South Vermillion at Parke Heritage; Covington at Clinton Prairie; Notre Dame de laSalette (IL) at Attica; Seeger at Clinton Central; and Southmont at Fountain Central.
Two make-up games are set for next Tuesday: South Vermillion at North Vermillion and Rensselaer at Seeger.
