CHURUBUSCO â€” Clutch free-throw shooting down the stretch made the difference in Whitkoâ€™s win against Churubusco Saturday.
The Lady Wildcats won the Whitley County rivalry game by a final of 56-52.
Churubusco had a six-point lead heading into the fourth quarter. Consecutive steals and baskets from Whitko freshmen Brianna Cumberland and Aly Reiff cut the Lady Eagle lead to just one.
From that point, Whitko got to the line often enough to close the gap. The free-throw shooting was not perfect, but Cumberland knocked down four in a row to seal the win in the gameâ€™s final minute.
WHITLEY COUNTY â€” The same storm system that swept through Illinois, killing six and destroying hundreds of homes, passed through Whitley County Sunday afternoon with minor damage in comparison.
The National Weather Service predicted a 30 percent chance of tornados in Whitley County, along with much of Northeast Indiana.
Storm cells with rotation entered Whitley County, prompting tornado warnings in the northern and southern parts of the county, but fortunately for local residents, storm damage was minimal Sunday.
