ALBION, Ind. (WANE) – When Central Noble travels to the Berry Bowl in Logansport in this Saturday’s semi-state round, the Cougars are hoping history repeats itself in one of Indiana’s most iconic high school gyms.

Five years ago, Central Noble earned a semi-state title in Logansport en route to their lone state championship in Class 2A.

For the first time since 2019, the Class 2A No. 3 Cougars are back in the semi-state round after holding off a tough South Central team last weekend in the regional round. Now Central Noble prepares for a top five showdown against No. 5 Lafayette Central Catholic, who needed a fourth quarter comeback to take down Bishop Luers last Saturday. Tip is set for noon.

Should Central Noble top Lafayette Central Catholic, the Cougars would need to beat the winner of the other semi-final battle between Andrean and Lapel in the championship game later that night.
