Shelby Shaffer and Lauren Weidman played their last games at Center Grove High School’s gym Tuesday night. Judging by their performance, they’re going to miss the place.
Shaffer dished out five assists, while Weidman poured in 27 points, including seven 3-pointers, as the host Trojans concluded regular-season play with a 63-51 win over Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference rival Carmel. Center Grove finished the season unbeaten at home (8-0).
The win snapped a six-game losing streak against the Greyhounds and ended the Trojans’ regular season with a 15-5 overall record and 6-1 in MIC play. The latter tied the program’s best conference mark. Carmel fell to 10-9.
Weidman was instrumental in determining Tuesday’s outcome. Center Grove took control of the game with an 18-3 run that spanned the second and third quarters. During that stretch, Weidman hit four 3-pointers and a layup to account for 14 of the Trojans’ points.
