Tipp blasts Shawnee on Senior Night


A rare occurrence took place during Tippecanoe’s 60-19 girls high school basketball win over Springfield Shawnee Saturday.

All of the seniors on the Tipp squad got into the scoring column on Senior Day.

Erica Comer, a starter all season, had 13 points and 10 rebounds. Sarah Janosik, who has averaged eight minutes per game this season, had four points and four rebounds. Kayla Vath (five minutes per game) had five points, three rebounds and two assists. Jessica Wise, who averages about two minutes per contest, had five points and two rebounds.

It was the only game in Tipp’s 12-9 season where all four have scored.

“Sometimes you have too many kids on Senior Night and just getting them in can be challenging,” said Tipp coach Aaron Jackson.

“Thankfully, today we got the seniors a lot of minutes and the non-seniors did a great job of making sure they got their shots.”

Junior Halee Printz did the best job of passing. She had 10 assists, 10 rebounds and 10 points along with four steals.

“Our goal going into the game was to see if we could get all the seniors points,” said Comer. “I got the opening basket and Kayla (Vath) made a 3-point shot right after me.

“Jesse got her first basket on a fast break real quick (15 seconds) into the third quarter. When Sarah got her basket (with 5:28 to go in the third quarter), the whole bench went crazy. It was such a cool feeling for all the seniors to score.”

While Tipp was getting nine players in the scoring column, Shawnee was struggling to hit the rim. The Braves finished the regular season 4-18, losing their last eight.

They shot 17 percent for the game and went a span of 13:48 in the second and third quarters without a field goal.

“That’s pretty typical of our games,” said Shawnee coach LeeAnn Ballard. “We’re competitive in stretches and then can’t make a shot. It’s pretty frustrating because the other aspects of our game aren’t bad. We know what we have to work on for next season.”
