LINDEN – Saturday’s Regional at North Montgomery gave the three county schools an opportunity to showcase their toughness as they looked to advance to Saturday’s New Castle Semi-State.
In all, 13 were able to punch their tickets and will look to advance to Banker’s Life Fieldhouse next weekend.
The county produced one champion in Southmont’s Boone Welliever. He was able to claim back-to-back Regional crowns, winning at 126 last year and 132 this season. He propelled the Mounties to a fourth place team finish.
“We call him ‘Big Match Boone,’” Southmont coach Kevin Wilkinson said. “When it’s time to step up in a big match, he gets it done.”
