champions are made in the summer
A stormy start to a day that would hammer home the theme printed on the back of Muncie coach Lisa Blalock's t-shirt - "champions are made in the summer." As we saw at New Castle & Carmel, summer leagues and shootouts lay the foundation for next year's teams and that hard work was on full display at both Blue River Valley and Muncie Central. Although separated by only a few miles these two schools tell the tale of Indiana basketball - BRV, a small Henry County school (1A) with one Semistate championship on their resume and Muncie Central, a powerhouse since 1917 with 8 State banners hanging from the rafters. What we saw at the end of the day - hearts big enough to fill any championship roster. CGS.
