The packed Marengo side of Homer “Bill” Barry Gymnasium rose in unison with 1:06 remaining to salute the Indians and their place in school history.

What the fans sensed from the first minute, when sophomore Mike Volkening hit two 3-pointers, was about to become real.

The Indians proficiently handled anything Woodstock threw at them, all but eliminating any drama, on their way to a 62-48 victory for the Class 3A Marengo Regional championship Friday night, the Indians’ first such title since 2000.
