November 18, 2013

CHURUBUSCO — Clutch free-throw shooting down the stretch made the difference in Whitko’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.
