ROCHESTER â€” Wrestling regionals convene around the state this weekend, and many area wrestlers are hoping to make Saturdayâ€™s stop at Rochester the next in a long journey toward the podium at state.
DONALDSON â€” Ancilla College womenâ€™s basketball player Shalana Murray was selected as a co-recipient of the NJCAA Division II Womenâ€™s Basketball Player of the Week Award for January 26.
A 5-foot-11 forward, Murray posted a pair of double-doubles on January 19 and January 22 against Grand Rapids Community College and Kellogg Community College, respectively.
Murray put up 16 points and 16 rebounds in a 61-55 victory over Grand Rapids at home, followed by a 10 point, 15-rebound performance in a 54-52 victory at Kellogg.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â The Plymouth High School Boys Basketball team will host a Coaches vs. Cancer Night on Tuesday, Feb. 10 when the Pilgrims play host to the Class 4A, No. 5 Warsaw Tigers. Â
The mission of Coaches vs. Cancer is to increase cancer awareness and promote healthy living among students, faculty, school staff, fans and the community at large. The varsity Pilgrims will be collecting donations during the junior varsity contest, which is slated to begin at 6:15 p.m., and coaches will wear pink t-shirts and shoelaces to promote the cause at the game.
PLYMOUTH â€” A mixed martial arts cage is hardly the place most people would describe as â€śan oasisâ€ť.
Being locked in a roughly 20-foot space with someone who wants to either beat or choke you unconscious or else wrench your joints out of socket hardly seems to fit the definition.
Nevertheless, thatâ€™s exactly how 19-year-old Plymouth native Ricky Miller described entering the cage for the first time, a 170-pound bout at the Century Center in South Bend December 11.

PLYMOUTH â€” Twice is nice, but the third time is definitely the charm.
Just ask Plymouth senior Damon Howe.
Coming off a three-peat Northern Lakes Conference championship turn last weekend, the heavyweight earned yet another three-peat as he captured the Rockies their lone sectional championship as the Rockies placed fourth behind Culver Military, while Warsaw won the meet, Bremen finished fifth, Culver was eighth and Triton placed ninth at the Plymouth Wrestling Sectional Saturday.
CULVER â€”Â The honors just keep rolling in for Culver Communityâ€™s girls basketball team.
Just seven days after seizing the programâ€™s first Bi-County crown since 1995, the Class 2A No. 6 Lady Cavs captured the Northern State Conference championship â€”Â also their first in 16 years â€”Â with a 45-36 win over visiting LaVille at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Saturday.
And with New Prairieâ€™s 40-38 loss at Bremen Saturday, Culver, riding a 12-game winning streak, claimed the title outright with one game left on the league ledger.
MERRILLVILLE â€” After suffering a close loss earlier in the week to West Noble, Plymouth gymnastics traveled to Merrillville Saturday where the Lady Pilgrims had to face five Top 20 teams at the Pirate Pride Invitational.
Plymouth scored a season-high 83.3 at Merrillville but still finished in eighth place at the loaded 10-team meet, which was won by No. 8 Portage with a score of 106.125.
Plymouth scored season high team scores on all four events, led by freshman Nicky Davis.
