Mater Dei advance to regionals with momentum


Mater Dei has advanced to the regional round in class 2A. The lady Wildcats won the sectional title defeating Tell City 52-40. It’s back to back sectional championships for Mater Dei.

Chad Breeden’s team has won seven of their past eight games and hope to keep their hot streak going into the weekend.

“I think it’s very beneficial to be playing the way we are playing right now, however I still believe they are still a lot left in the tank. We have been shooting the ball well but we have had girls struggle from the field, and we still haven’t mastered the free throw line, at this point in the season, we have some things we can still improve on.”

Mater Dei will play South Ripley Saturday morning at 9 am in the Paoli regional.
