CGA runner Neer finally able to leave doubts behind her

December 21, 2010

CULVER — Runner Waverly Neer has been carrying something of a chip on her shoulder for a long time.
After securing All-American status with one of the top Indiana high school times ever at the 2010 Foot Locker Cross Country National Finals, maybe she can finally begin to put some of her doubts to rest.
The Culver Girls Academy senior seized 14th at the Foot Locker Nationals with a 17:51 at Balboa Park in San Diego, Cal. on December 11. The pace was the fastest of any runner in CGA history and fifth all-time by any Indiana runner at the girls meet.

Plymouth rallies past Panthers

December 21, 2010

NAPPANEE — After a tough Northern Lakes Conference loss at Warsaw a week prior, Plymouth was due for a bit of luck at NorthWood.
After trailing for nearly 27 minutes at the Panther Pit, the ball bounced the Lady Pilgrims’ way as they rattled off an 11-0 run and parlayed a pair of costly NorthWood turnovers into a 30-25 conference win Saturday.
“I think we dug a little deeper and we didn’t want to give away the second NLC win on the road, and we got this one,” said Plymouth girls basketball coach Dave Cox.

LaVille ekes out OT win at Glenn

December 21, 2010

WALKERTON — LaVille’s Zoe Bulick went from safety valve to savior.
The junior guard’s game-tying 3-pointer with 3 seconds left in regulation sent the game to overtime where the Lancers eked out a 53-50 Northern State Conference girls basketball win over John Glenn at The Aerie Saturday.
Trailing 47-44 with just seconds to play, LaVille’s last-ditch effort looked dangerously close to breaking down altogether. After a deflection in the left corner, LaVille’s Kaitlyn Kopetski located a wide open Bulick two steps left of the top of the key for the clutch triple.

Culver wins second conference game against Jimtown

December 21, 2010

CULVER — If Jimtown is a brick wall, then Culver’s Zoe Bauer was the bulldozer that broke through it.
The Cavaliers, led by Bauer, came from behind in the last minutes of the game to increase their Northern State Conference wins to two, with a W over the Jimmies, 41-33.
Jimtown came to Culver knowing they had to shut down the Cavs’ four-year varsity player. And for the first three quarters, they did just that.
“I think we did a great job on Bauer,” Jimtown head coach Randy DeShone said, “until the third quarter. He’s been around a while, and a kid like that is going to beat you.”

Falcons overpower LaVille, 55-32

December 21, 2010

WALKERTON — John Glenn’s boys basketball squad flexed its muscle on both ends of the court Friday.
Defensively, the Falcons held LaVille to a 10-of-42 mark from the field — 2 of 18 from downtown — while on the other side of the timeline Glenn pounded the ball inside almost at will in a 55-32 Northern State Conference win at The Aerie.
“I think our strength took over tonight, and it should with our size and experience,” Glenn head coach Travis Hannah said. “We were able to take the ball to the hole.

Panthers top Plymouth

December 21, 2010

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth point guard Houston Hodges played his best game of the season, but NorthWood won the game in the front court.
With 6-foot-8 leading scorer Sean Smith sidelined with a five-game suspension, Panthers big men Cameron Williams and Aaron Rhoade combined for 27 points, and NorthWood earned a 19-rebound advantage keeping Plymouth off the glass as the Panthers handed the Pilgrims a 47-38 Northern Lakes Conference-opening loss at The Rock Friday.

A scene from a classic

December 20, 2010

In the movie “A Christmas Story,” 9-year-old Ralphie just wants “an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock, and this thing which tells time,” and throughout this classic tale, Ralphie’s friend Flick takes “a double dog dare” to see if his tongue would really stick to a flagpole.

Was it curiosity to see if a tongue really does stick to a flagpole? Or just a re-enactment ... here, Eleanor Miller’s grandsons Robert Howland and Jimmy Miller have a little film fun and re-enact the famous scene.
