State champions to face
Center Grove in first
game of 4-A regional
By Justin Sokeland
The true sign of a program’s strength is continuity, and Columbus North has epitomized that this season. How many teams could win a Class 4-A state championship, lose Miss Basketball, and come back just as strong? The Bull Dogs certainly have.
Time turned the page, yet the story remains the same. Columbus North, 24-1 and ranked No.1, is defending its crown, and it’s going to be extremely difficult to pry it away.
The Bull Dogs will continue their quest for back-to-back titles on Saturday when they face Center Grove (12-12) in the opening game of the regional on their home floor. Bedford North Lawrence (19-7) will meet Evansville Central (23-2) in the second game, and those winners will collide in the final at 8 p.m.
