TIPTON - The Hamilton Heights girls basketball team clinched a spot in the Sectional 24 final tonight with a 40-32 win over Tipton.

They had defeated Tipton 51-31 earlier in the season but were playing without their lead scorer, Kayla Kirtley.

"We are very limited as far as scoring goes," Husky head coach Keegan Cherry said. "The one thing we have been able to consistently rely on is defense. We held them to 10 points in the first half but on the flipside, we only scored 15."

The team finished with 12 steals total. Ana Collar turned on the heat in the final quarter with three steals, finishing with four total.

Offensively, Bayleigh Runner stepped up for Heights yet again, scoring 11 points.

"Bayleigh has been a rock all season," Cherry said. "She has stepped up when she needs to - running point and then scoring when Kayla was out. She is doing a fantastic job."

Ashton Runner had eight points and Collar had seven.

This will be the first sectional championship Heights has played in since 2013, when the team was state runner-up.

"We're fortunate to have the opportunity to play for a sectional championship," Cherry said. "We understand it's going to be a tremendous challenge for us."

Their opponent, Heritage Christian, is one of the toughest teams in Indiana, ranked at No. 11 in the IBCA poll. They are 18-6 and four of their losses have been to top-10 ranked 4A schools.

"We're going to go compete and put our best foot forward," Cherry said.
