NorthWood guard Karlie Fielstra, here being guarded by Benton Central’s Sidney Schwartz, is the third daughter of former Elkhart Memorial coach Larry Fielstra to play for the “Black Swish.’’

When your program has been as strong as the NorthWood girls basketball team has been through the years, it’s going to touch a lot of people.

Saturday in Indianapolis, the “Black Swish’’ will play for a Class 3A title against No. 1 Salem at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
