GRONINGER INKS INTENT WITH INDIANA WESLEYAN

WARSAW, Ind. -- Dayton Groninger, a two-time All Northern Lakes Conference first team selection and an Indiana Top 100 Workout and Showcase invitee, tipped off the start of her senior season by signing a Letter of Intent to play basketball and attend school next year at Indiana Wesleyan.

Groninger, a go-to-player that led the Lady Tigers in scoring the past two seasons, was named to the Ink Free News All-Area Team and the Times Union All Area team after tremendous sophomore and junior seasons.  She was also an Indiana Basketball Coaches Association Subway All-State Honorable Mention pick last year after leading her team in scoring (game-high 28 vs. Wabash), rebounding (career-high 16 vs. Oregon Davis), steals, assists, and free-throw percentage.

While the sure shooter has been a key force for the Tigers and coach Michelle Harter (sectional champs 2015, runner-up 2016), Groninger was also an instrumental figure in Warsaw's sectional and regional track championships last season as a member of the regional champion 4x800 squad and qualified for the state finals.  A participant in the 800-meter run, Groninger and her 4x800 teammates set the school record for the fastest indoor time during last year's indoor season.

While Groninger has been finding success on the hardwood and on the track outside of school, her outstanding efforts in the classroom  have landed her in the top 10% of her graduating class with a 12.1 GPA on a 12-point scale.  She is also a member of the National Honor Society, Tiger Student Athletic Board, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Groninger plans to major in Exercise Science at Indiana Wesleyan, an area of study where she is getting great experience serving with Miller's Merry Manor during an internship this semester.  She will play for coach Steve Brooks and the Wildcats.  Indiana Wesleyan is affiliated with the NAIA and NCCAA and is a member of the Crossroads League.

PLYMOUTH AND WARSAW SET FOR SHOWDOWN FRIDAY

It has been several years since the matchup between Plymouth and unbeaten Warsaw has been staged on a Friday night.  For a stretch, the boys basketball game between these two programs has been held on Thursdays due to Northern Lakes Conference scheduling rotations.

Not only with the upcoming matchup in the Tiger Den on Friday night place the contest on a night where more fans can be in attendance, with both teams shooting for a conference title it's only fitting for this game to be set in prime time.

Warsaw enters with the state's No. 4 ranking in class 4A.  Coach Doug Ogles' team enters the contest with an unblemished mark of 18-0 overall and 6-0 in conference play.  The Tigers' string of wins to start the season is the best start in school history.

Plymouth enters the contest 14-4 and 5-1 in NLC play, and the Pilgrims are looking for a share of the conference.  Combined with a NorthWood win on Friday night, should Plymouth also win it would force a three-way tie in the conference standings.  Plymouth has won nine of its last 10 after a 3-game skid in mid-December.

Both schools will be offering pre-sale tickets for general admission to fans starting on Wednesday through Friday. Tickets will be on sale in the WCHS Athletic office from 8am - 3:30pm on Wednesday and Thursday.  Fans are encouraged to pick up tickets in advance to ensure they are not waiting in line to purchase tickets.  There is no concern for a sell-out, however pre-sale is being offered as a convenience to fans to avoid potential lines at the ticket gates!  Fans arriving for tickets should ring the buzzer at Door 22 on the northwest side of the school (just beyond right-center field at the baseball diamond).

Friday night has the ingredients for one of those "back in the days" environments, and we hope to see the Tiger Den filled with Orange on Friday night!

It was a great trip to Plymouth to meet Dave and Janet Burke!  Special thanks to Mr. Stan Seiss and his efforts to ensure all Warsaw state champions are recognized with their photo placed in the trophy case!  After getting in touch with Dave Burke - the 1951 state champion in the high jump - Blossers used an old photo and negative to create an 11x14 to place in the case, and one was made to share with Mr Burke!  The Warsaw graduate was one of Warsaw's first state champions and he continued his track & Field career at Purdue University.  Burke went on to teach and coach in Warsaw for several years, and he served 33 years teaching mathematics and coaching track at Culver Military Academy.  Burke is also an inductee to the Kosciusko County Basketball Hall of Fame.   (Pictured: Scott Erba, Dave Burke, Stan Seiss)
