The most reliable source of offense for the Quakers turned out to be from six rebound put-backs, four of those from senior forward Mackenzie Reeder, who paced Plainfield with 20 points.
“Sometimes, we relied on (Reeder) too much,” Benge said. “She is such a physical specimen, so quick and strong. She really played a good game for us. We would have been in trouble without her.”
Sherwood led all scorers with 22 points. Casteel also made double digits with 11 points for the Quakers, while Kyndall Spears added eight off the bench.
Sherwood and Reeder led their teams in rebounds, with 11 and nine, respectively.
Pending weather adjustments, the Quakers (8-4) are off until Friday for a semifinal match up in the Hendricks County Tournament. Plainfield will take on the winner of the Cascade/Danville first-round contest in the first semifinal.
