Easton Mann recently out of surgery to help his hearing, was treated a little like a celebrity at last Friday nightâ€™s Plymouth vs. Bremen football game. Seniors lined up and gave Easton high fives with Coach John Barron, then Houston Hodges presented him with a ball autographed by the team. Tonight, the Rockies take on Rochester on the road, with game time at 7 p.m.
WARSAW â€” Triton topped the field on its home course at challenging Rozella Ford, while Bremen also got something to celebrate as the Lady Lions earned their first win Wednesday.
The Trojans tallied a team score of 212 to breeze to a dual win over both Bremen, which recorded a 242, and Tippecanoe Valley, which finished at the bottom of the pile with a 282.
Triton head coach Jack Carpenter said he expected his team to win the meet, and Wednesday's meet was more about his players' scores.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Rockies got off to a rocky start to the 2010 season.
Twice Plymouth gave up scores to Bremen and had to play catch-up in the first half of the two teams' opening game last Friday at the Rock.
Twice first-year quarterback Houston Hodges was picked off, and Plymouth's secondary got burned on 7-of-8 passing for 108 yards and a score by Bremen junior quarterback Nate Leeper and the Lions' newly-installed pro style offense in the first half.
As Week 2 of the 2010 football season gets underway, several area teams are looking to carry momentum forward with them.
John Glenn claimed a lopsided reprisal victory over former sectional rival North Judson at home last week and hopes to open its Northern State Conference schedule with a win over perennial NSC powerhouse Jimtown today.
PLYMOUTH â€” About 30 years ago, Marshall Countyâ€™s Ginny Buchman fell in love with the game of golf.
â€śThat was a long time ago and I still play about the same,â€ť Ginny laughed. â€śNot very good.â€ť
But her efforts a few weeks ago are the equivalent of a 350-yard drive right down the middle. In early August, Ginny organized a golf outing at Mystic Hills Golf Course in Culver that raised $3,500 for Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center/Plymouthâ€™s Health Center, located at 116 East Washington Street, which provides care for the underserved of Marshall County and the surrounding area.
PLYMOUTH â€” It will be a time of celebration 50 years in the making as United Way of Marshall County honors those who have made the organization what it is at its anniversary party on Sept. 11 at Swan Lake Resort.
Hors dâ€™oeuvres will be served at 6:30 p.m. during the cocktail and social hour with dinner to follow. The event will honor the past campaign drive chairs and board presidents who built the organization from its early days as the door to door Community Chest program to what it has become today.
PLYMOUTH â€” The 2007 State Champion Plymouth Pilgrims â€” voted the Pilot Newsâ€™ â€śBest of the Decade in High School Sportsâ€ť â€” were a team on a mission.
With several members of the 2005 state runner-up squad still on the team, there was a unique sense of destiny in the locker room. They seemed to know it was going to happen.
â€śIâ€™m pretty sure the seniors thought weâ€™d do it all year long,â€ť said Jason Renz, a senior on the 2007 team. â€śChad (Clinton), Randy (Davis) and I were all on the 2005 team that lost on the half court shot by Luke Zellers. We felt like we were good enough to do it.â€ť
