Wabash wins TRC title

What looked to be a barnburner turned into a bust for the Peru Tigers but a second straight outright Three Rivers Conference championship for the Wabash Apaches.

Wabash traveled to Peru with an 8-0 conference record and 17-4 overall while Peru entered the game at 7-1 in the TRC and 16-5 overall. The Apaches never trailed and ran away with an 80-45 win.

“This is a goal we set back in June,” Wabash head coach Paul Wright said. “They deserve it because I know how they worked since June and the fall. This is something the varsity players wanted to get done and it worked out great for us.”

With Peru missing two key players in Mathew Ross and Treyden Curtis, Wabash took advantage early and often.

“Half of our points and rebounds were gone tonight,” Peru head coach Eric Thompson said. “Mathew and Treyden average 20 to 30 [points] together. But the way Wabash was playing it may not have mattered. They played really well.”

Jasper Walters got the Apaches started with a three-pointer 15 seconds into the game. Peru's Pete Polk answered seconds later but Wabash's Trenton Daughtry hit from long range for a 6-2 Wabash lead that started an 11-1 run.
