Due to several instances of bad weather, completing winter sports has been very challenging for student athletes at Tippecanoe Valley. However, even with the rescheduling of many games, Valley has had awesome highlights in its winter athletic career. Wrestling, basketball and swimming have all had excellent seasons, with students traveling to state and making All-Area teams.
For boys’ basketball, junior Chainey Zolman, and seniors Tanner Andrews and Robby Groom were named to the Warsaw Times-Union All Area Team. The boys’ basketball team also made it to the sectional semifinals, but was defeated by Northwood. Also, the Tippecanoe Valley girls’ basketball team had three players recognized as All-Area athletes: freshman Anne Secrest, senior Cara Hoffman, and junior Caylie Teel.
The TVHS wrestling team completed its season with seven wrestlers advancing to regionals. Austin Nault (11), Devin Childers (11), Wyatt Nelson (11), Cody Runyon (11), Garrett Bell (12), Keaton Bell (12), and Jaron Kidd (12) qualified for regionals. Junior Devin Childers also advanced to state and competed.
Tippecanoe Valley has had a great winter sport season, and will most definitely have a great season. Girls’ tennis, boys’ golf, track and field, baseball and softball will begin practices, matches, and games soon.
