Loogootee Basketball Team Headed To State Finals

Last updated on Monday, March 19, 2012

(SOUTH PORT) - Loogootee beat out Edinburgh in a tremendous victory that paved the way to the State Finals against another Wabash Valley team; Rockville.

Loogootee's Bryant Ackerman had 23 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists. Conner Wittmer scored 17 points and had 7 rebounds.

Loogootee came from behind and held the lead in a late game winner against Edinburgh.

These two great victories are spectacular in themselves; however, what's even more amazing is the fact that this State Finals will be the first ever where two Wabash Valley teams will face each other.

Even though Rockville and Loogootee will face-off on Saturday, March 24 at 10 a.m. for the State Finals championship, and only one can win their first ever State Title, a win for either of them equals a monumental win for all of the Wabash Valley.
