Five teams vying for five titles in less than 12 hours.
Welcome to Championship Saturday Culver sports fans. Saturday will see five Culver teams take to the course, courts, and pitch (soccer field) looking to either win a championship or advance to the next round of a state tournament.
It all begins at 10:30 a.m. when Culver Academies will host the girls and boys cross country sectionals. The boys five-kilometer race will feature CMA and 10 other area schools competing for a chance to advance. The first five qualifying teams will qualify for the regional, which will also be conducted at Culver on Oct. 17. The top 10 individuals from non-advancing teams will also move on.
The girls 5K will begin at approximately 11:10 a.m., with CGA and 10 other teams vying for one of the top five slots. Again, the top 10 individuals from non‐advancing teams will also qualify for the regional. The races are free of charge.
After the cross country sectional, fans will be able to cross State Road 10 and go to the Gable Tennis Center to watch CMA take on Munster for the semi-state title at noon. CMA (16-2) will face Munster (20-1) on the front courts with a trip to the state finals next week on the line. The Eagles advanced with a 3-2 regional championship win over Plymouth Wednesday. The Indiana High School Athletic Association is charging $5 per person for the tournament.
At 2 p.m., the CGA soccer team will travel to Plymouth High School to face Warsaw in the sectional championship game. The Eagles advanced with a 4-1 win over host Plymouth on Tuesday and a 2-0 victory over NorthWood on Thursday. Tickets will be $6 each.
Fans can then take a short break before heading over to Warsaw High School to watch the CMA soccer team take on the host Tigers in the boys sectional title game at 7 p.m. CMA advanced to the title game with a 4-1 win over NorthWood Monday and a 2-1 victory over Plymouth on Wednesday. Tickets will be $6 each.
