For Center Grove junior Madison Kolthoff, the North Central girls basketball team’s big run didn’t seem to last too long.

“I just blinked,” she said, “and then it was like a four-point game.”

North Central cut the Trojans’ 18-point late third-quarter lead to four with under two minutes to play.

But Center Grove didn’t worry. Just like it did the whole game, it hit free throws at the end.

The Trojans made all 20 of their free-throw attempts, setting a new school record (previous record 11-12 in 2010-11) en route to a 55-45 victory against visiting North Central on Thursday night.
