INDIANAPOLIS (WTWO/WAWV) – The Parke Heritage Wolves finished the season as the runner up in class 2 A, falling to Fort Wayne Blackhawk Christian in the state championship game. It’s only the 3rd year as a school for Parke Heritage, following the merger of Rockville and Turkey Run in 2018. Head coach Rich Schelsky says this team has a place in the record books of Parke County.
“We knew three years ago when we started the school that we had some talented basketball players coming into our program but you know with that comes putting the pieces together and guys buying in and then to do something like this and make a run like this one you’ve got to make your own breaks and two you’ve got to get some breaks and we’ve been very good at that and it’s a tremendous accomplishment for these kids like I’ve told them throughout the course of this post season run they’ve become Parke County legends they really have and you know we’ve got a proud rural community that really supports their athletics and really loves basketball and these guys are going to go down as some of the best that’s ever played in our county,” he said.
The Wolves will lose seniors Connor Davis and Riley Ferguson to graduation. However Noble and Christian Johnson will be back next season. Noble will be a senior and Christian a junior so they will look to continue their streak of excellence.
