Salem and Eastern Claim Sectional Championships!

Both Salem and Eastern brought home sectional championship hardware on Saturday night, as both teams had to overcome late deficits to win their respective sectionals. Eastern won their sectional for the second time in a row and third time in four years by beating Crawford County 39-36. 

Salem also had to come from behind, trailing by 7 with just 2 minutes left to play. But Karly Sweeney scored at the buzzer to complete the comeback and give Salem the win over Silver Creek 54-52. 

West Washington battled Trinity Lutheran, coming back from an early deficit to tie the game at 15, but the Lady Cougars kept swinging. The Lady Senators trimmed the lead to five late in the game but couldn't get any closer falling 47-38.
