After a nail-biting victory over the Harrison Warriors, the Mater Dei Wildcats sit atop the Associated Press Class 2A poll for the fourth week in a row. Meanwhile, thanks to their 35-30 win over the Castle Knights, Reitz finds themselves sitting on top in Class 4A. But they're not the only teams in the area getting props.
The Reitz Panthers Boys Basketball program last played for a state title in 1951 where they fell two points shy of a championship to Muncie Central. The 2014-2015 incarnation has the chance to be the first to get the job done Saturday night against a tough Fort Wayne Homestead team who boasts a McDonald All-American and Mr. Basketball candidate in senior Caleb Swanigan.
The Reitz Panthers' Boys Basketball team rallied in the first game of the Regional before controlling the second to come home with the school's first title since 1968. Now they prepare to do what no other team has done since then, win Semistate and advance to the State Title game in Indianapolis.
