Greencastle wins first girls basketball sectional since 2013

Greencastle girls basketball waited ten years for a sectional title.


The wait ended Saturday.


The Tiger Cubs handled Parke Heritage to win the program's first 2A sectional and first overall since a 3A title in 2013, 54-32.


Greencastle led by as many as nine in the first period but that dwindled to just two at halftime, 20-18.


The Tiger Cubs (22-4) put a stamp on the contest in the third period as the lead grew to 19.  Evie Briones connected on four three-pointers in the third and scored 12 of her 18 as Greencastle pulled away.


Gloria Brewer scored 26 points to lead Greencastle.


Raegan Ramsey topped the Wolves' scoring effort with 19 on 9-for-11 shooting.  Emma Simpson added nine points on 3-for-11 shooting.  Simpson averages 20 points per game for Parke Heritage (20-6)


Greencastle will play Union County (16-9) in the 4p.m. single-game regional at Southmont on Saturday.


Greencastle's only regional title was in the single-class era in 1980.
