T-bird girls' semistate matchup shifts West Vigo-North Central boys game

Feb. 12—The state tournament success of North Central High School's girls basketball team has prompted a rescheduling of North Central's boys game at West Vigo this week.

The Thunderbird girls (now 18-10 overall) won their Class A Greencastle Regional game last weekend 55-50 over Bethesda Christian, and will now face Wood Memorial (16-10) at noon Saturday in the New Albany Semistate. Jac-Cen-Del plays Lanesville in the 10 a.m. game at New Albany, and the early-round winners meet for the semistate championship at 8 p.m. Saturday.

North Central's boys team was originally scheduled to play at West Vigo on Saturday night, but will now play in the Vikings' Jim Mann Green Dome gym at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. The junior varsity game begins at 6 p.m., according to West Vigo Athletic Director Kenny Pearson.
