Plymouth stays perfect in NLC
Plymouthâ€™s Rockies remained unbeaten in Northern Lakes Conference wrestling with a 60-12 win on the road at Warsaw Wednesday.
Plymouth wrestlers won six matches by pinfall as Nolan Wright, Logan Wiegand, Eli Wendt, Aaron Houin and Drew Dodson all earned second-round victories by fall, and Vicinte Vasquez notched a third-period pin for the Rockies in a make-up of a dual meet rescheduled from two weeks ago due to illness throughout the Plymouth lineup.
MARSHALL CO. â€”Â Ralph Booker, county plan director, is now also plan director for the city of Plymouth. Commissioners voted for this change Monday, after much discussion in previous meetings.

PLYMOUTH - In the wake of last weekâ€™s tragedy in Connecticut, the spotlight once again falls on violence perpetrated against schools, and the efforts of school administrations to insure the safety of staff and students.
BOURBON â€”Â Facing an exhausted lineup in the huddle with a little under three minutes on the clock, Triton head coach Jason Groves urged his players on: Give it all youâ€™ve got for just a little longer, and thereâ€™ll be plenty of time to rest over Christmas break.
And, of course, heading into the holiday layover with a win always feels a lot better than the alternative.
