A-P, B-H set to square off for county title

The championship is set for the Vermilion County girls basketball tournament, and it will be defending champion Armstrong-Potomac going up against Bismarck-Henning.
DANVILLE, Ill. - The championship is set for the Vermilion County girls basketball tournament, and it will be defending champion Armstrong-Potomac going up against Bismarck-Henning.  The Blue Devils have won five of the last six Vermilion County titles, but A-P is confident going in.  The Trojans' seniors already have a hoops title under their belt, and they'll look to continue their dominance Friday night.

"They've won the volleyball title.  They've won the basketball, and we talked about this being one of our goals at the beginning of the year, so winning this would be a big accomplishment for us," said Armstrong-Potomac head coach Nick Hipsher. "I really feel like it has been a team effort.  We have had girls step up off the bench.  We have had girls that are scoring.  It has been a complete team effort these last two games.

One of those players that has stepped up is Morgan Zindars, who scored 11 points in the Trojans' semifinal win over Westville.  She is excited to play for another county title.

"It means a lot, especially with sports meaning so much to me," Zindars said.  "So walking out taking every title [would be] awesome."

Armstrong-Potomac and Bismarck-Henning tip off at 8:00 pm Friday night in the championship game at Palmer Arena in Danville.  Salt Fork and Georgetown-Ridge Farm will play in the third place game at 6:30 pm, while Oakwood and Westville will play for fifth place at 5:00 pm.
