VHS SBW graphic.jfif

The Valparaiso Vikings hit the road again and faced #4 ranked (3A) team in the state in South Bend Washington. The senior-laden Washington team proved to be the better team Saturday night, but Valparaiso displayed a great effort throughout but could not quite get it done as they fell, 49-40.

Washington came out ready, taking a 15-8 lead at the end of the 1st. The Vikings make some adjustments and kept the game close throughout. Washington's experience and ability to hit some big shots down the stretch proved to be the difference on the night.

Jack Smiley led the team with 14 points and 4 assists, Mason Jones added 11 points and 9 rebounds, and Matt Hofer contributed 6 points off the bench.

The junior varsity team won 51-35 against South Bend Washington on Saturday. They were led by Colin Kaleth and KJ Avery who each scored 10 points. Kaleth also contributed 8 rebounds.

Valpo is back in action next weekend in a boys/girls doubleheader at home vs. Lake Central and then hosting a triple-header freshman, JV, Varsity vs. Warsaw on Saturday.
