Danville’s Lauren Drennan and Morgan Crandall followed up strong performances at he Big 12 swim meet a couple of weeks ago by qualifying for the state meet at a IHSA sectional at Champaign Centennial High School.

Drennan qualified in the 100-yard butterfly, taking second in the event with a time of 57.58 seconds.

It was another school record for the junior and it got her ranked 13th in the statemmet.

Crandall was third in diving with a score of 349.80, putting her among the top 32 at-large divers for the other sectionals who did not win a sectional title. It also broke the team record she set two weeks ago.

As a team, the Vikings were third with a total of 160 points, the highest finish for the team in 10 years. Sunny Strader was also able to set two team records in the 200 freestyle (2:02.05) and the 100 backstroke (1:01.6).

Schlarman was also at the sectional with Bridgett Henwood getting the top finishes for the Hilltoppers with a ninth-place finish in the 200 freestyle (2:08.07) and fourth place in the 500 freestyle (5:43.37).

Drennan and Crandall will now get ready for the state meet, which will start Friday in Evanston.

Mustangs take second in Classic

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — Natalie Robinson was the Most Valuable Player as Fountain Central picked up their best finish in the Clabber Girl Classic since the first tournament eight years ago.

The Mustangs started the weekend with a 45-38 win over North Central in which Robinson had a triple-double with 16 points, 13 rebounds and 10 blocks.

On Saturday, the Mustangs beat North View 57-50 as Robinson had 22 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks and Kenzie Lindquist added 19 points and eight rebounds.

In the title game, Terre Haute South was too much for Fountain Central as it won 62-39. Lindquist led the Mustangs with 13 and Robinson added 11.

“It was a great weekend,” Fountain Central coach Brad Odom said. “We beat a 4A team to get to the final and we played pretty well in the first half of the title game but we just ran out of gas.”

The Mustangs are 2-1 and will host Western Boone on Tuesday.

Benton Central 83 Covington 26

Rend Lake 72


INA — The Jaguars blew a late five-point lead as they lost to Rend Lake.

DACC was down 12-2 early but was able to tie things up 33-33 at halftime. They would take the lead with 1 minute, 41 seconds left, but some turnovers and offensive rebounds by Rend Lake cost the Jaguars the game.

Billy Hayes led the Jaguars with 23 points and nine rebounds and Tim Toler picked up his fourth straight double-double with 19 points and 15 rebounds.

DACC was playing without J.T. Hatfield, Justin Hightower, Quan Delsol and Austin Smith, but coach Mike Carpenter was not using lack of players as a reason for the loss.

“We’re not going to make excuses, other guys need to step up and perform,” Carpenter said. “We showed a tremendous amount of improvement from our last outing, however, we should have won this game. Rend Lake is a very good team and showed a great deal of heart.”

The Jaguars will try to regroup at home on Tuesday when they face Kankakee Community College at 7:30 p.m.
