Despite leading 15-3 in the second quarter, Lake Central High School fell to Penn High School’s Kingsmen 43-41 in the final game of Indiana’s LaPorte 4A Regional Championship. Penn captured its eighth regional girl’s basketball championship in the program’s 43-year history.
Penn will take on Zionsville Community High School on Saturday in the Semi-State round, and stands two wins away from a state championship.
The Kingsmen took advantage of the Indians’ poor free-throw shooting and lack of 3-point threats. Penn hit five 3-pointers while Lake Central hit only one.
