LAGRANGE — Lakeland High School served as the intersection of exhilaration and relief for the NorthWood girls basketball team, and the Panthers weren’t afraid to admit it really was both those things.

With senior Maddy Payne scoring 22 points and grabbing eight rebounds, and junior Kendal Miller adding 11 points and three steals, NorthWood ended the longest sectional title dry spell in the program’s uber-rich history with a 56-34 spanking of the host Lakers in Saturday night’s Class 3A final.
