Warsaw Girls 60, Elkhart 28
There was no need to a miracle three from Kensie Ryman this time around.
Ryman provided 15 points, but unlike the 2020 thriller that had Ryman hit a halfcourt buzzer beater to give Warsaw a two-point win in double overtime, Warsaw didn’t need the good luck. Audrey Grimm was 8-10 from the floor and scored 17 points to lead the Tigers (16-5), Abby Sanner had 12 points and six rebounds, and Bailie Stephens had seven steals and five assists in its regular season finale.
Elkhart (8-13) really struggled from the floor, going 2-16 from three-point range and committed 25 turnvoers. De’Mour Watson had 10 points and 11 rebounds to pace the Lions.
