BOURBON â€” The Triton School Board held a special session Thursday to allow the public to receive information on two proposed projects for the school corporation as well as hear how the funding for the projects has been established.
However, only one patron attended the entire meeting and only one other attended for a few minutes.
Area residents will have a second opportunity to hear the particulars of the projects and funding at the regularly scheduled school board meeting Monday, Oct. 11.
The majority of the projects concern heating and cooling unit replacements along with controls.
LAKEVILLE â€” The LaVille Boys Soccer Sectional first round hinged upon recovery and survival at Newton Park Thursday.
NorthWood, led by Ryan Lincolnâ€™s hat trick, recovered from a 3-1 halftime deficit to eliminate Bremen 4-3, while defending sectional champion LaVille survived a late push from John Glenn to escape the nightcap with a 2-1 victory.
The Lancers and Panthers meet in Saturdayâ€™s title round at 7 p.m. at Newton Park.
ARGOS â€” It was a bad night for Marshall County teams at the Argos Boys Soccer Sectional.
First, defending sectional champ Warsaw coasted past the host Dragons for a 5-0 victory, and then an early mistake wound up costing the Plymouth Rockies their bid at a championship as they fell to Manchester 1-0.
BOURBON â€” It is nice to face a lesser foe on senior night. The Triton volleyball team was not soÂ fortunate Thursday evening.
Jimtown put a damper on the festivities honoring Tritonâ€™s eight seniors with a 25-15, 25-18, 25-17 win, its 18th of the season.
â€śIâ€™m really proud of the way the girls played tonight,â€ť Triton coach Terrin Meister said. â€śWe did do some great things, but we just have to get over that hump.â€ť
Jimtown (18-6, 4-2 Northern State Conference) knew it had to overcome a motivated opponent.

Park beat Hickman in two sets (6-0, 7-5) for the third team point, all three coming in singles. No. 2 Wilson Wu and No. 3 Quinlan Smith provided other points.
ARGOS â€” The Dragons have a tough road at sectional this week.
Although Argos has already notched a win over rival Plymouth, the Sectional 17 hosts will have to get through defending champion Warsaw today to even get to the finals this year.
â€śItâ€™s going to take a superb team effort on our part for us to get them,â€ť said Argos head coach Todd VanDerWeele. â€śAnythingâ€™s possible, and I think of all the teams Iâ€™ve had since Iâ€™ve been coaching at Argos, this is the best one Iâ€™ve had that I think could do that.â€ť
WALKERTON â€” Coming off back-to-back losses against Knox and Jimtown, the Culver Cavaliers (5-2, 3-2 NSC) jump out of the frying pan and into the fire this week with a game at Northern State Conference foe John Glenn (6-1, 4-1 NSC).
In fact, Culver head coach Andy Thomas sees some parallels between the Jimmies and the Falcons, who were handed their only loss this season by Jimtown.
