CRAWFORDSVILLE â€” When J.D. Taylor passed away the day before the first annual J.D. Taylor Benefit Golf Scramble, his family had a choice to make: cancel the event or carry on with it in his memory.
Luckily for the Grindle family, Taylorâ€™s family chose the latter.
The Third Annual J.D. Taylor Golf Scramble will take place Saturday, Sept. 17 at Rocky Ridge Golf Club in Crawfordsville, and all proceeds from the event will benefit eight-month old Landon Grindle, the son of 1999 Plymouth High School graduate and former Argos High School Boys Basketball coach Joel Grindle and his wife.
BREMEN â€” Itâ€™s been an exciting start to the 2011 football season for the Bremen Lions.
After breaking a 23-year drought against Plymouth in Week 1, they went on to earn a program-first win at Tippecanoe Valley Friday. Now, Bremenâ€™s Sept. 9 game with Triton has been chosen as the second game on the Indianapolis Coltsâ€™ Friday Night Football Tour.
DAEGU, South Korea â€” Morgan Uceny needed only to advance from her qualifying heat at the IAAF World Track & Field Championships.
So she did.
Uceny, a 2003 Plymouth High School graduate, ran conservatively and settled for a third-place finish in the third of three preliminary races as she began her quest to win a gold medal in the womenâ€™s 1500-meter run Saturday night.
Now, itâ€™s on to the semifinals, scheduled at 7:35 a.m. (EDT) Tuesday at Daegu Stadium in Daegu, South Korea.
ARGOS â€” Munster outlasted Argos 3-1 in the championship game of the Argos Invitational Saturday.
Melissa Strohl gave the Lady Mustangs a lead midway through the first period, but Sammie Hopkins answered with a blast from 35 yards out just minutes later. Argos, with an enrollment of 215 students, had the first half edge over Munster, which boasts an enrollment of 1616: Strohlâ€™s goal was the Mustangsâ€™ only shot on goal of the opening frame, with the Dragons getting four.
The second half saw the reverse, however, as Munster put seven shots on goal to one by Argos.
