Dwenger wins regional title

HARTFORD CITY – So here was the formula, in so many words, for the continue-to-be un-squashable Bishop Dwenger Saints: Say cheese.

Say cheese down there in the mad scrum in the middle of the floor, where moms and dads and older brothers and younger sisters posed and smiled and posed and smiled, over and over again, in the wake of the Saint’s 50-47 overtime win over Muncie Central in the 3A regional championship game Saturday night.

And, yes, oddly enough, say cheese before that, when the title looked as if it were sliding away from the Saints (17-8) mere minutes before.

“Even when we were down in overtime, they kept their composure,” said Dwenger coach Matt Kostoff, whose team plays Bowman Academy in the semistate Saturday at either West Lafayette or Huntington. “Mike (Fiacable) was on the bench telling them, ‘Smile, smile, everybody smile.’

“And we came through. Very proud of them.”
