The Vikings (3-2) have won three consecutive sectional titles anda 2020 regional championship as the team's head coach Terry Bales took over the team in 2017-18. Prior to Bales Blue River's last sectional championship came in 1984 and 1985.
Bales started the season with a 72-30 record as of last year, with his 22-4 (9-0 in the Mid Eastern Conference) mark as his best to date. The Vikings lost two key contributors to Mallory Cross and Abby Thornburgh in that squad, however Bales' team was tasked with replacing them. Bales' team was assigned this year to replace their 14.5 scores, 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assist per game.
But Blue River still has senior center Ally Madden, one of the top interior players in the area Sharpshooting junior Maci Chamberlin and plenty of depth around them to make an appearance in another event.
Although four consecutive sectional titles will break the school record but there's a long way to go before the Vikings still have many steps to take toward being a definite postseason candidate.
"I don't know because we're still in the process of growing. I would like to see us become an elite team capable of doing this. I don't believe that we're in the right place yet," Bales said of the team's chance at a sectional championship. "We've got to learn how protect better ... be careful not to get into the trap of making mistakes that aren't forced. Therefore, we've got some learning to do. And certainly (a divisional name) is where we hope to end up."
Although four consecutive sectional titles could break the school's record however, the Vikings still have some way togo to be a solid postseason contender.
