The high school season is almost over and we are getting locked in for the State Playoffs. It is that time of year where we start looking ahead and previewing each and every Sectional. We continue today at the top.

Sectional 13: Whiteland

The Teams: Center Grove, Franklin Central, Franklin, Greenwood, Shelbyville, Whiteland

Our Contenders: Center Grove, Greenwood

Player To Watch: Tayven JacksonTayvenJackson6'3" | SGCenter Grove | 2022State#239NationIN (Center Grove; 2022) 

Prediction: It is a under-the-radar tough opening round matchup between Center Grove and Franklin Central, but one I expect Center Grove to win. Up top, Greenwood, who won a sectional title last year, would face host Whiteland in the semifinal, assuming it takes down Franklin Community in the opener. When it’s all said and done, a sectional final with Center Grove, who is 5-0 against the field, and Greenwood is one I think will happen. Tayven JacksonTayvenJackson6'3" | SGCenter Grove | 2022State#239NationIN and Landin HackerLandinHacker5'11" | PGCenter Grove | 2021StateIN lead the Trojans and should be the favorite to come out of this sectional.

Sectional 14: Bloomington South

The Teams: Bloomington North, Bloomington South, Columbus East, Columbus North, East Central, Martinsville

Our Contenders: Bloomington North, Bloomington South 

Player To Watch: Nick KlaiberNickKlaiber6'1" | PGBloomington North | 2022StateIN (Bloomington North; 2022)

Prediction: The Columbus North Bull Dogs
