PLYMOUTH â€” The focus was on focus a week ago and the Plymouth Rockies responded with a win over Elkhart Memorial, but with Concord looming a week away, Plymouth needs look no further than an embarrasing loss a year ago to know that Wawasee is this weekâ€™s opponent.
Confidence is high for the Rockies based on an explosive offense that can score a lot of points teamed with a defense that has been inspired two weeks in a row.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s volleyball team battled, but in the end it wasnâ€™t enough to overcome visiting Elkhart Memorial as the Chargers handed the Pilgrims a three-game defeat, 25-23, 25-15, 30-28, at The Rock Tuesday night.
â€śThey fought very hard. Theyâ€™re a hard-working group,â€ť said Plymouth head volleyball coach Doug West. â€śWe have nothing to be ashamed of. Weâ€™re very proud of our team. We just want to win.
â€śWe lost two games by two points apiece, so thatâ€™s disappointing, but itâ€™s indicative of how well-played the match was. Two good teams fighting to win.â€ť

WARSAW â€” It wasnâ€™t necessarily NorthWoodâ€™s goal to walk out of the Warsaw Sectional with the championship.
The Lady Panthers goals were more modest: stay out of trouble, beat last yearâ€™s score, get one of the top three spots that guarantee a regional berth.
It wasnâ€™t the Panthersâ€™ goal to take home the sectional trophy, but it sure felt good.
NorthWood carded a 348 to beat out second-place Wawasee by 12 strokes and run away with the teamâ€™s first-ever sectional championship Saturday at the Warsaw Girls Golf Sectional at Stonehenge.
Brebeuf beats CMA
Brebeufâ€™s LaVante Bellamy set a new school rushing record with 376 yards on 22 carries and six TDs as Brebeuf handed CMA its second straight loss, 48-7.
The Eaglesâ€™ lone score came in the final quarter as Wheaton Jackoboice caught a 43-yard pass from Jesse Brownfield with 8:48 left to play in the game.
CMA managed just four rushing yards compared to 505 by Brebeuf, but the Eagles threw for 224 yards on 17-of-35 passing with one interception.
CMA slips to 3-2, while Brebeuf moves to 4-1.

ARGOS â€” Argos and Plymouth have experienced many dramatic finishes to their girlsâ€™ soccer matches over the years. Wednesday nightâ€™s make-up game was no exception as Hannah Harrellâ€™s header tied it for the Dragons with about a minute to go in the match.
Neither team created many chances in the first half with only three combined shots on goal. The Rockies created a nice opportunity late in the first half as Allie Wright got to the endline and around the Argos defense, only to have it smothered by keeper Jenni Fishburn.
PLYMOUTH â€” It was a big early win a week ago at Northridge, for Plymouthâ€™s Rockies the challenge this week is to avoid the letdown that sometimes accompanies that win.
â€śWe know it was a big win, but the challenge only gets greater now,â€ť said Plymouth head coach John Barron. â€śYou have more and more people from the outside telling you how good you are. If we start believing that weâ€™re in trouble. We are a good football team â€” donâ€™t get me wrong â€” but weâ€™ve gotten there by working at it.â€ť
