The draw for the IHSAA state tournament which will reveal CP’s foe in the six-team Valparaiso Sectional, will be held on February 23.
Washington coach Ryan Varga found out that his team’s game in Crown Point would be played at the middle school about 10 a.m. Saturday.
“At first I was worried about the length of the floor,” he said. “Because we like to run and spread things out. But when I got here I was at ease. Coach Swan put me at ease.”
“We want to play as many well-coached teams as we can and coach Swan’s teams have that reputation. He’s been doing it for so long. Hopefully a little of it will rub off on me.”
