DECATUR, Ind. (WANE) – Four northeast Indiana girls basketball teams are still dancing after earning a regional championship on Saturday. Snider, Fairfield, Tippecanoe Valley and Central Noble each advance to next weekend’s semi-state round.
In Class 4A, Snider held off a tough Harrison team to earn their first girls basketball regional title since 2010.
In Class 3A, Fairfield and Tippecanoe Valley each held on to win regional titles at Jimtown High School.
Finally, Central Noble held off a second half comeback by South Central to earn their fourth regional title in school history.
Meanwhile, Homestead, Norwell, Garrett, Bishop Luers and Southwood all saw their season come to an end after losing on Saturday.
Teams that advance to the semi-state round will need to win two games to advance to the state finals, a change introduced this year by the IHSAA. The IHSAA will reveal the semi-state brackets on Sunday at 3 p.m.
