CULVER â Even with repeat Marshall County Golf Tournament titles and a veteran roster with everyone back from last yearâs state finals-qualifying squad, Triton wasnât taking any chances.
The Trojans got in a practice round at Mystic Hills Friday, then went on to defend their Marshall County title at the Culver course Saturday, easily beating second-place John Glenn by 30 strokes with a tourney-record-setting 304 in spite of gusty winds and a saturated course.
PLYMOUTH â Another complete pitching performance, another flawless defensive effort, another Northern Lakes Conference win.
Jordan Scheetz pitched a three-hit, one-walk shutout going the distance, and the Pilgrims defense backed him up with its second straight errorless NLC outing as Plymouth stayed unbeaten in the conference with a 7-0 victory over visiting NorthWood at Bill Nixon Field Friday.
Scheetz allowed only seven total runners on base in a super-efficient 78 pitches as the Pilgrims got their second straight complete game after Richie Luvaâs win over Wawasee Thursday.
PLYMOUTH â Three wins in three days.
The rain has played havoc with Plymouthâs Northern Lakes Conference schedule, but its hasnât been as devastating to the Lady Pilgrims as theyâve been to their NLC foes.
Up against a condensed stretch of conference meets, Plymouth earned its third straight win in as many days with a 4-1 conquest of visiting Concord at home Friday, following back-to-back home wins over Elkhart Memorial and Warsaw to move the Pilgrims to 4-0 in the NLC and 7-1 on the season.
Cafe Max owner Susie Mahler wants to assure customers the recent addition of a bar at the longstanding Culver institution is no cause for alarm.
âNo, itâs not getting changed into a âhoochie bar,ââ she says with a smile. âThere will be no pole dancers, male or female!â
She points out Cafe Max has served beer for about 10 years and had a three-way liquor license for a year and a half. She says the bar, which was installed over two days last week during which the restaurant was closed, is largely about increasing night dining to the establishment.
