The girls Class 3A sectional championship last night in Benton goes to Highland.  The Lady Bulldogs topped Civic Memorial 49-42 to earn their 29th win of the year.  It was the 4th win over the Lady Eagles this season, who finish the year at 22-11.

CM led by two at the half, 27-25, but the Bulldogs opened the third quarter with a 12-2 run.  The Lady Eagles tied it at 39 early in the 4th quarter but Highland took control and never looked back. 

Allie Troeckler finished with 21 points for CM last night, as did Highland’s Amanda Ponce. 

At the 3A Clinton Sectional last night, Lincoln beat St. Thomas More from Champaign 53-39 and will play against Highland on Monday at the Springfield Super Sectional.
