(Kouts, IN) - The No. 1 ranked girls’ basketball team at South Central High School won the Porter County Conference tournament championship over the weekend. The Satellites are now 22-0 and remain No. 1 ranked in Class 2A.
Mike Kellems of La Porte, who’s been to several Lady Satellites games this season, was at the conference title match-up against Kouts. The Lady Satellites won 53 to 31.
Kellems said the Satellites have been particularly strong on defense all season and showed why in holding Kouts to 11 first-half points.
“They were vintage for this year,” Kellems said.
Kellems said the Satellites are also good offensively with solid fundamentals in moving the ball and some players with the ability to hit a high percentage of three-point shots.
“It’s really, really, really been a lot of fun to watch them,” he said.
The regular-season finale for South Central is Friday night at LaCrosse. The intensity and atmosphere are always tremendous in games when the longtime arch-rivals from southern La Porte County face each other.
Head Coach Ben Anderson said LaCrosse (13-6) should not be overlooked by his players who’ve taken a one game at a time approach to the regular season and upcoming post-season.
