PLYMOUTH â€” â€śIâ€ťâ€™m overwhelmed and so proud to have been a part of my school. Iâ€ťâ€™m just overwhelmed by all of this.â€ť
And it could be easily said that Ancilla College was overwhelmed by graduate and benefactor Dennis Emmons as they honored him with the very first â€śCharger of the Year Awardâ€ť for service to Ancilla College and itâ€ťâ€™s athletic department.

PLYMOUTH â€” Marshall County has officially entered the deep freeze as plenty of snow blanketed the area over the weekend and more is forecast for the coming days.
Marshall County Emergency Management Agency Director Clyde Avery issued a statement Monday afternoon from the National Weather Service stating that a large area of system snow is expected to begin at daybreak Tuesday and continue into early Wednesday morning before giving way to intense lake effect snow showers over our area.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Ply-mouth area Chamber of Commerce announced its newly-elected Chamber President, Ryan Jessen.
Jessen joined PNC Bank in 2007 as an assistant vice president and business banking officer in Kosciusko County, but now is located at the Plymouth branch.
His professional education consists of a bachelorâ€™s degree in Management from Saint Josephâ€™s College and a masterâ€™s degree in Business Administration from Bethel College.
PLYMOUTH â€” If the rest of the year continues the way it began, the Marshall County Council would likely consider it very successful.
Marshall County Auditor Penny Lukenbill had good news for the Council as it held its first meeting of the new year.
Lukenbill was able to return around $800,000 to the general fund â€” money that was budgeted from the previous year and not spent.
Lukenbill and the Council praised the work of the county department heads who made the savings possible. It also started discussion on another topic.
KNOX â€” Have you ever heard the term â€śUnstoppable Force?â€ť
Itâ€™s the best term to describe Oregon-Davis guard Zach Richie, who has been tearing up the court this season. Richie hasÂ racked up more thanÂ 40 points in eight consecutive games and boasts an average of 43 points per game. Thatâ€™s quite an accomplishment for this junior, but itâ€™s definitely not surprising.
LAKEVILLE â€” Sophomore forward Katie Berger shot her way to a career-high 16 points Monday night against Bremen, and helped the Lady Lancers reach a milestone in the process.
Berger went 3-of-4 from beyond the arc in the first half to help keep LaVille within range as Bremen grabbed a 28-25 halftime lead, while the Lancersâ€™ defense shut down the Lions for a 13-point swing in the third quarter, and LaVille held off their pesky Northern State Conference rivals to claim a 51-47 win over Bremen at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Monday.
BOURBON â€”Â Only Jacy Borlik could stop Jacy Borlik.
And after sitting the entire second quarter with two fouls, the John Glenn senior looked in no mood to hit the brake pedal in the second half.
Even with the lengthy break, the 5-foot-8 Borlik piled up 23 points, eight rebounds, and four steals â€”Â all game highs â€”Â and delivered two key plays down the stretch as the Falcons repelled a furious Triton fourth-quarter rally en route to a 47-35 Northern State Conference girls basketball win at The Trojan Trench Friday.
PLYMOUTH â€” It was like watching a bad rerun. All over again.
For the second straight game, Plymouth battled down to the wire only to fall short in overtime.
It was also the teamâ€™s third loss to be decided in extra periods this season, and, as in their first such loss to Peru, second quarter mistakes came back to haunt the Pilgrims as visiting Elkhart Memorial put the game away at the line, handing their hosts another heartbreaker, 55-47, in a Northern Lakes Conference game at The Rock Friday.
BREMEN â€” Up 18 points at halftime, LaVille coach Michael Edison warned his team that historically-scrappy Bremen was capable of a big second half-run. He was right.
Bremen clawed back and trailed by five with 3 minutes remaining, but LaVille put the game away at the free throw line in a 47-36 victory.
â€śBremenâ€™s only won one game, but theyâ€™re the type of team that battles,â€ť Edison said. â€śIâ€™m proud of our guys for their composure. Itâ€™s easy when things are going well, but itâ€™s about how you react when things arenâ€™t going well. I was happy how they finished the game off.â€ť
