2018 Indiana High School Basketball State Tournament: Sectional Championship Scores

We have 64 sectional champions, with a pair of future Boilers among them.

Winning a sectional is pretty special. As a very proud Kokomo alum, my beloved Kokomo Wildkats have a state record 74 sectional titles. We won the sectional title all 4 years I was in school and this year only marks the second time ever we have lost in the sectional in four striaght seasons. We have never lost five in a row. I have a piece of all four sectional nets on my wall for 1995, 1996, 1997, and 1998.
