West Washington bested Trinity Lutheran with a dominating performance to beat the Cougars 59-35. West Washingont layed a haymaker to Trinity in the first quarter and the Cougars never got up off the mat as the Senators cruised to the win.

Salem had a shootout with Brownstown that saw the Lady Lions pull away late in the fourth quarter to win 59-50 to claim their second sectional championship in a row.

Eastern won an overtime thriller over Paoli 46-42 to advance to their sectional championship game. They will play Crawford County on Monday night at 7 p.m. at Eastern to try and make it three sectional championships for Washington County.
