High School Sports

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Central Noble’s Connor Essegian set a school single game scoring record with 44 points as the 2A no. 8 Cougars bested 2A no. 15 Churubusco 81-71 in the NECC Boys Tournament Quarterfinals on Wednesday night at Prairie Heights High School.

Central Noble advances to face 2A no. 6 Westview in the NECC Semifinals on Friday, as the Warriors beat Hamilton in their quarterfinal match-up. The semifinal game is set to be played at Lakeland High School at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.

The reason it will be played at Lakeland is that the Lakeland girls defeated Prairie Heights 49-29 on Wednesday to earn hosting rights to Friday’s semifinal against Westview. That game will tip at 6 p.m. at Lakeland H.S.
