LAKEVILLE â€” Itâ€™s not always the big-name players who make the big-time plays. Sometimes itâ€™s the quiet role player who steps up and seizes the marquee moment.
On Friday, that player was Scotty Brown.
LAKEVILLE â€”Â With the gameâ€™s first basket Friday in the Bi-County Boys Basketball Tournament semifinal round, Tritonâ€™s Griffyn Carpenter broke his schoolâ€™s career scoring record.
And he never really stopped scoring the entire night.
The 6-foot-1 senior powered his way to a game-high 29 points and led the Class A No. 3 Trojans to a 59-44 win over host LaVille at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
Triton looks for its second straight title tonight, against Culver Community. Game time is scheduled for 8:30 p.m.
Culver's Pete Trone began his service on Culver's planning and zoning boards for which he was recognized by both the Culver Board of Zoning Appeals (in late November), and the Town Council (in December) 34 years ago.
Trone's father, Donaldson, arrived at Lake Maxinkuckee around 1904 when Donaldson's parents rented the old Norris farm on the east shore of the lake. That first summer, the family came by train and rented a horse and wagon, says Pete. Don Trone was 11 or 12.
