ELKHART â€” Plymouthâ€™s young squad finished sixth in both the 200 medley and 400 free relay and reached the consolation finals in six individual events against a tough Northern Lakes Conference field at the NLC prelims at Concord Thursday.
With just one senior and five sophomores on the Pilgrims swim team, head coach Leanne Senter knew it would be tough to compete for a share of the NLC crown and was happy just seeing the numerous personal- and season-bests her swimmers clocked.

ARGOS â€” A fire ripped through a residence on Michigan Street in Argos Tuesday night.
Neighbors of Cynthia Salyers alerted her and her family to the fire in their home before Argos firemen were called to the scene about 8:16 p.m.
â€śThe family was watching TV, and the neighbors alerted them to the fire,â€ť said Argos Fire Chief Mark Dean. â€śIt was in the attic and they had about 12 inches of insulation in there. They had no idea there was a fire.â€ť
Dean said that the fire was mostly confined to the ceiling and the attic of the home.

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels made a stop in Culver Wednesday evening, sampling the fare at the Corndance Cafe, and meeting and greeting people at the Culver-Oregon Davis basketball game (which Culver won 89 to 45). Besides Daniels' presence, it was a big night in Culver for the Elliott family. Young Trent, a player on the team, scored 33 points during the game, which dad Kyle Elliott coached. Across town at the same time, meanwhile, Kyle's father John Elliott was awarded Citizen of the Year by Culver's Lions Club for his generosity and caring in the community.
CULVER â€” In Horse parlance, Culver Communityâ€™s girls basketball team proved it.
Just three days after dethroning Oregon-Davis in the Bi-County Tournament final, the Class 2A No. 6 Lady Cavs upended the Lady Cats again, this time more convincingly than Saturdayâ€™s four-point margin.
Culver landed a quartet of players in double figures and held Class A, No. 4 OD to 32 percent from the field in a 68-50 win at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Tuesday.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â No records, no personal bests and no lineup-shaking breakouts.
The atmosphere was subdued as Plymouthâ€™s girls swim team finished out their regular season with a 105-81 loss to South Bend St. Josephâ€™s at their home pool Tuesday.
