The West Central Lady Trojans have won their 2nd consecutive sectional title! The Trojans had very little trouble collecting their championship in the all Midwest Conference sectional at North White. In their first game, West Central outscored Pioneer 26-6 in the first half on their way to a 43-22 win, behind Marissa Hamilton’s game-high 15 points. The Trojans came back in their second game to defeat Tri-County 54-39 and put themselves in the championship game. The duo of Hamilton and Justine Kruger combined for 37 of the team’s 54 points. In the championship game, West Central’s smothering defense was too much for Caston as the Trojans defeated the Lady Comets 43-18. Again, it was the combination of Hamilton and Kruger who lead the offensive charge, this time scoring 34 of the team’s 43 points. This sectional championship is the fourth in the six year coaching career of Gina Hierlmeier, proving that tradition never graduates!
West Central (18-5) will be taking on Fort Wayne Canterbury (21-2) in the first round of the Caston Regional. Congratulations to the West Central Lady Trojans on their 2nd consecutive sectional championship!

Here you can see Marissa clearing 5 feet 4 inches to tie the Bi-County high jump record. Listen closely at the end you can hear Marissa asking what she did wrong, she wasn’t aware that she did not knock the bar off until her next attempt.
The West Central Lady Trojans won their 4th sectional championship in the last 6 years by defeating DeMotte Covenant Christian, Pioneer, and Tri-County at the West Central Sectional. The Trojans’ season came to an end in the first round of the Caston Regional when they lost to Bowman Academy 49-41. Their 18-5 final record as well as the Sectional Championship quieted West Central’s critiques who were anticipating a down year. Congratulations to the Sectional Champion West Central Lady Trojans on an outstanding season!
