"That's the first time I have seen a guy taller then him all year," said Heffern.
The Panthers swept Covenant Christian 5-0 for the Ben Davis Regional championship Wednesday afternoon, with Park Tudor not even dropping a single set along the way. It was an occurrence that seemed almost expected, but the Panthers were pleased nonetheless.
"We usually play a high level against a lot of tough competition all year," said Heffern.
"So coming into this we knew a couple of the teams we were playing against were ranked various times in the top-twenty in the state. We knew that we had to perform well, and we were confident we could get it done. We just came out and played up to our level."
