WARSAW, Ind. (WANE) – A bigger class size has proved to not be a tougher challenge, at least so far, for the Canterbury girl’s basketball team, as the Lady Cavs punched their ticket to the 2A state championship game Saturday with a 79-65 win over Tipton.
Due to its recent success, and a “success factor” rule created by the IHSAA, Canterbury was bumped up to 2A this year. The program has won 1A state championships in each of the last two seasons, and five of the last six seasons.
Canterbury senior Kindell Fincher led the Cavs in the team’s semi-state game with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Junior Darby Maggard added in 19 points, to go along with seven assists, while senior Katherine Smith scored 18 points and pulled down 12 boards.
Tipton was led by Kacie Jueay, who scored a game-high 25 points.
Canterbury will face Heritage Christian (26-1) on Saturday at the Hulman Center in Terre Haute.
