INDIANAPOLIS — The Silver Creek girls have talked about checking off boxes for the entire postseason.

The Dragons checked off that final box with a 54-48 win over South Bend Washington in the Class 3A state championship game Saturday afternoon at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The win gave the program its first state title, as the Dragons finished 25-3.

“Rebounding, defense and execution,” Silver Creek coach Scott Schoen said of the keys to the victory. “I’m just so proud of these girls. . . To play for a state championship, it’s surreal. It really is. You have to be lucky.”
