Bremenâ€™s Chelsea Huppert drove in five runs and got a pitching win and a save as the Lady Lions won their home softball invitational over the weekend.
Plymouthâ€™s George Stults homered twice in a win at Warsaw, then followed up with three RBIs in another NLC win over Wawasee last week.
PLYMOUTH â€” Sandwiched in the midst of a hectic Northern Lakes Conference schedule, the Pilgrims wanted to avoid a letdown in their non-conference game with South Central Saturday.
Plymouth rallied with two outs, Brayden Davidson hit a walk-off single, and the Pilgrims claimed a 5-4 victory over the visiting Satellites at Bill Nixon Field.
WALKERTON â€” Bremen is on the verge of a Northern State Conference boys track championship.
But it hasnâ€™t happened yet.
The Lions lead New Prairie, 136-127, with one event remaining in the league meet at John Glenn High School.
Horrid weather conditions forced suspension of the pole vault Wednesday night. Vaulters will gather at 5 p.m. today to finish up.
While New Prairieâ€™s girls have wrapped up an NSC title â€” there is nothing anybody can do to catch them â€” the outcome of the boys contest is still up in the air.
PLYMOUTH â€” The top community college golfers from across the United States will be coming to Swan Lake Resort in Plymouth next week for the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Menâ€™s Division II Golf Championship.
Over 140 of the nationâ€™s best junior college golfers from a total of 43 teams will be competing in the event. Practice rounds start on Sunday, May 18Â and continue through Monday. Round one action begins on Tuesday, May 20Â at 7 a.m. and will conclude on Friday with round four.
WARSAW â€”Â At the start of the season, Plymouth girls track coach Paul Patrick had no idea how good his team would be. He certainly didn't anticipate the Lady Pilgrims' stellar Northern Lakes Conference finish.
With host Warsaw in a league of its own, the rest of a tightly-bunched NLC pack was left to battle it out for second place at Tuesday's conference championship meet. In the end, Plymouth backed up a second-place finish in the league dual meet season with a runner-up finish at the championships, the team's highest finish at the meet since Patrick took the reigns nine years ago.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Plymouth made its run, but the rally was just a bit too little, too late.
The Lady Pilgrims battled back from a five-run top of the first by Warsaw with three runs in the sixth, but they ultimately fell short 6-4 in a Northern Lakes Conference softball game with visiting Warsaw at home in Centennial Park Monday.
â€śIâ€™m really proud of how we played today; we didnâ€™t show that we were behind,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Haley Church. â€śWe looked like we were trying to take charge the whole time, and it was fun to see them put it together.â€ť
