ELKHART â€” It wasnâ€™t a championship, but first-year Bremen head wrestling coach Shawn Campbell still got a little misty-eyed at the progress heâ€™s seen his team make.
Jimtown won the championship on its home turf, but outsized Bremen won a moral victory, placing 13 of its 14 wrestlers in the top six for third place at the Northern State Conference Championships at Jimtown Saturday.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Despite being down 6-foot-1 senior Marisa Green, Plymouth outrebounded Wawasee 35-18 â€”Â including an 11-2 advantage off the offensive glass â€”to beat their Northern Lakes Conference foe 45-36 at The Rock Saturday night.
With Green sidelined with an ACL tear â€” the second of her four-year career â€” Amber Redinger and Andria Shook stepped up in the front court while the rest of the team chipped in to help the Lady Pilgrims win the battle of the boards and their second straight NLC game.

LAKEVILLE â€” Itâ€™s not always the big-name players who make the big-time plays. Sometimes itâ€™s the quiet role player who steps up and seizes the marquee moment.
On Friday, that player was Scotty Brown.
LAKEVILLE â€”Â With the gameâ€™s first basket Friday in the Bi-County Boys Basketball Tournament semifinal round, Tritonâ€™s Griffyn Carpenter broke his schoolâ€™s career scoring record.
And he never really stopped scoring the entire night.
The 6-foot-1 senior powered his way to a game-high 29 points and led the Class A No. 3 Trojans to a 59-44 win over host LaVille at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
Triton looks for its second straight title tonight, against Culver Community. Game time is scheduled for 8:30 p.m.
Plymouth rec soccer registrations is Saturday, Jan. 22 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Plymouth library. An additional day will be held next Saturday, Jan. 29 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the library. You can print the registration form at www.leaguelineup.com/plymouthsoccer and mail it in as well.
LAKEVILLE â€” Culver Communityâ€™s Patrice McBee dug deep into her bag of offensive tricks Thursday night in the Bi-County Girls Basketball Tournament semifinals.
With conventional low-post work, a short jumper, a dribble drive, a roll to the bucket, and a left-handed drive and right-handed finish on the baseline, the 6-foot-3 senior showcased her offensive versatility with a game-high 21 points to lead the Cavs to a 59-34 win over Argos.
LAKEVILLE â€” A lot can change in nine weeks.
When Oregon-Davis first took the floor at Triton in early November, the Lady Bobcats were essentially an eighth-grade team with virtually no returners from last yearâ€™s Sectional 50 championship campaign, and the Trojans handed them their first loss in two years.
The names and the faces were the same, but there were few other resemblances between the Class A, No. 4 Bobcats that hit the hardwood in that game and the one that played Triton Thursday.
