Plymouth stressing tradition while Bremen, Glenn look to build in Week 2

August 25, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Following last week’s historic loss to Bremen, the Rockies are taking some history lessons this week.
The defending Class 2A Sectional 26-champion Lions handed Class 4A Plymouth a 21-8 defeat in last Friday’s opener, the first such win for the Lions since 1988, and the experience left a sour taste in the Rockies’ mouths. The team is stressing tradition this Friday as it plays host to another longstanding nonconference rival in Rochester, and the stakes are a fourth-straight Hickory Stick traveling trophy.

Falcons serve up defeat of South Bend Clay

August 25, 2011

WALKERTON — A volleyball team’s first, and sometimes best, weapon is its serve.
That was certainly the case for John Glenn Wednesday as the Lady Falcons handed visiting South Bend Clay a 25-20, 25-10, 22-25, 25-8 defeat.
Led by Anna Schmalzried’s six aces and Stephanie Radandt’s four, Glenn recorded 65-of-78 serving efficiency in the win.
“We’re not very tall, so we have to serve tough and play good defense,” said Glenn head volleyball coach Merly Meares.

Day two flies by in county budget hearings

August 24, 2011

PLYMOUTH — “In all the years I’ve been looking at budgets these are the best I’ve ever seen.”
Most of the Marshall County Council could echo the sentiments expressed by President of the Council Matt Hassel as it concluded the second day of budget hearings for the coming year. The reason for the feeling was simple.
“These were serious, bare bones budgets,” said Hassel. “I think it proves that all our department heads are aware of the kind of economy we still face and are willing to work with us to get done what we have to get done.”
