(Union Mills, IN) - South Central High School's girls' basketball team is still undefeated, with just a month to go in the regular season. The Satellites are also ranked second in the most recent Class 2A girls' high school basketball rankings.
Two of their most recent wins were against much larger schools, Valparaiso and Shelbyville, in the Valparaiso Holiday Tournament won last week by the Satellites.
First-year head coach Ben Anderson said several of his players are not only very skilled but have played together for years. "I think the sky is the limit for this group," he said.
Anderson said the team must get through a very competitive sectional tournament to advance to the regionals and, perhaps, beyond. However, his players have the drive to do whatever it takes.
“They’re hard-working. They’re hungry. They want it. They’ve been an exciting group to coach,” Anderson said.
The Satellites are led by senior guards Abigail Tomblin and Delanie Gale, averaging 16.7 and 13 points per game, respectively. Junior forward Olivia Marks adds 12.1 points per game and 7.5 rebounds. The team with all five starters back from last season is 15 and 0 on the season.
