NORTHWOOD 57, ELKHART MEMORIAL 28
NorthWood maintained its perfect mark in the NLC with a win in its final trip to the presently constructed Phyllis Tubbs Gym at Elkhart Memorial.

GOSHEN 36, WAWASEE 18
The RedHawks spoiled former coach Matt Carpenter’s return to the Hawks’ Nest by doubling up the Warriors.
Wawasee went through a crippling dry spell from the floor, going over 23 minutes without a field goal that stretched into the final two minutes of the fourth quarter. The tenth win for the RedHawks saw Tori Eldridge lead the squad with 12 points. Wawasee held Brynn Shoup-Hill to 10 points below her average, netting just six points on one field goal. But in the low-scoring affair, seven RedHawks overall scored.
Wawasee had Becca Smith lead the team with six points and four rebounds. Kennedy White added six boards and a block with her three points.
Goshen won the JV contest by a 27-18 count. Amari Peete and Tate Cowan both had five points in the loss, Lindsay Doss adding five rebounds and four steals.
