(Union Mills, IN) - After an exciting semi-state performance that included a win in extra innings, South Central High School's girls' softball team has made it to the state finals.
High School Principal Ben Anderson said it's the first time any team from South Central has made it to the state finals.
"We're very excited for them. We're very proud," Anderson said.
South Central will play for the Class A state title Friday against Tecumseh at Purdue University at West Lafayette at 4:30 p.m. Tecumseh holds the No. 1 ranking in the state for Class A, while South Central is ranked in the top 10.
Anderson said reaching the state finals isn't that surprising for the team considering the program has eight straight sectional titles and reached the semi-state several times.
"The softball team has been very successful over the years. They have not quite been able to get over that hump. They finally did this year," Anderson said.
Anderson said individuals in track and cross country had made it to the state finals, but no team from South Central has ever made it to the state finals.
