STATEHOUSE (March 28, 2017) – State Rep. Christopher Judy (R-Fort Wayne) honored the Homestead High School girls basketball team this week at the Statehouse.

According to Judy, Homestead High School, which is ranked second, defeated fourth-ranked Pike High School to win the Class 4A girls basketball state title.

Judy said this was the girls’ first basketball state championship win for the Spartans, and the first for head coach Rod Parker, who has spent his entire head coaching career at Homestead High School.

“The Homestead High School girls basketball team has spent the past three seasons trying to take home the state champion title, and they finally achieved their goal,” Judy said. “This is a great win for the team and an excellent example of how hard work and dedication pays off in the end.”

Judy said the Spartans took the lead with a basket by Madisen Parker in the third quarter and never trailed again on their way to a 61 to 54 victory. She was selected by the members of the Indiana High School Athletic Association’s Executive Committee as the winner of the Patricia L. Roy Mental Attitude Award in Class 4A girls basketball.
