February 7, 2011

ROCHESTER — Culver head wrestling coach Mike Buschman was hoping his heavyweight could find something to hang his hat on at regionals.
How about a championship?
Culver 285er Jeremiah Harvey surprised the field, handing undefeated Plymouth’s tourney favorite and No. 2-ranked Damon Howe a quarterfinal upset, then following up with a dramatic double-overtime pinfall win over Penn’s Kade Maggart in the championship at the Rochester Individual Wrestling Regional Saturday.

Foust leads Fairfield over Bremen, 58-43

February 7, 2011

BREMEN — Bremen led 24-21 at the half, but Tanner Foust took over after the break as Fairfield claimed a 58-43 win over the Lions at Bremen Saturday.
Foust went 6 of 7 from the field in the second half for 16 of his game-high 24 points. His alley-oop layup at the 5:32 mark of the third frame put the Falcons up for good.
“He was kind of in the rhythm, and he was finding little seams and things,” said Fairfield head basketball coach John Wysong. “We didn’t tell him anything special (at halftime), just try to keep even-keel.”

February 7, 2011

LAKEVILLE — Last year, LaVille knocked Triton off its undefeated and sole possession of the Northern State Conference lead perch.

With the win, the Trojans enjoy a one-game edge in the league loss column with two games to play.

Pilgrims suffer Goshen setback

February 5, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Two steps forward, one step back.
Coming off a breakthrough week in which they broke into the Northern Lakes Conference win column and put together their first consecutive wins, the Pilgrims suffered a setback Friday, falling to NLC foe Goshen 48-37 in a Homecoming spoiler at The Rock.
Plymouth got off to a slow start as the visiting Redskins held the home team to just three points in the first quarter and 13 total points at the half, snapping a five-game losing streak in the Pilgrims’ worst offensive showing since a Nov. 30 loss to Triton.

Cavs start fast in season finale

February 5, 2011

CULVER — Culver Community’s girls basketball team viewed its regular-season finale as a sectional contest.
If the Cavs bring the kind of swagger to the real deal that they brought to the pseudo-sectional, watch out.
Class 2A No. 6 Culver allowed just two points over the opening 14:21 — highlighted by a nearly 11-minute scoreless stretch — en route to a 45-22 Northern State Conference win over visiting John Glenn at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Friday.
