Jennings and Penny come up short at semi-state

Whitney Jennings of Logansport

CROWN POINT, Ind. (WLFI) – After a two-point first quarter, Logansport fought back behind gutsy performances from Whitney Jennings and Nakeya Penny, who combined for 40 of the Berries’ 41 points.

After tying the game heading into the fourth quarter, Logansport led by as many as six after an 11-0 run that lasted the final 4:14 of the third quarter and first 1:08 of the fourth.

Logansport had missed just one free throw heading into the fourth quarter, then went 5 of 11 from the line in the last stanza.

Jennings led all scorers with 23 points after having just six at halftime while Penny added 17.

Defensively the Berries cracked down on Penn top scorers Caroline and Camryn Buhr. Logansport held them to nine points combined but the rest of the Kingsmen made enough plays down the stretch to survive and advance.

Penn will play No. 2 Bedford North Lawrence for the state title Saturday, March 8, at the Hulman Center in Terre Haute. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
