Warriors Down

After a 23-4 season, the Westview High School Warriors lost in the 2A championship game to Park Tudor, who has now won three of the last four 2A titles.

The Warriors had the deck stacked against them, as Park Tudor, a private school, boasted size and athleticism that Westview couldn’t match.

Westview, located in rural LaGrange County gave all of us at The Goshen News a nice “Hoosiers”-type feel-good story as they ran through the Indiana basketball tournament. Westview has 384 students and is located in the unincorporated town of Emma. The school is fed mainly by Shipshewana (Population 666) and Topeka (Pop. 1,153).

Needless to say it’s a public school that is not well equipped to hang with a private school from Indianapolis like Park Tudor. However, the school has a proud basketball history and is annually going deep into their sectional.

Despite their success, Park Tudor proved to be too much for Westview as they throttled the Warriors 84-57. I hope the communities can ignore the loss and look back proudly on a great season in Topeka.
