ARGOS âÂ Argos' girls basketball team learned a valuable lesson about being in the right place at the right time Tuesday.Â
Boosted by a fleet-footed backcourt, the Dragons' help-and-recover man-to-man defense held visiting Triton to a miserable 17 percent clip from the field, and senior forward Latisha Shepherd knocked down a game-high 18 points as Argos earned a 43-29 win at Phil Weybright Gymnasium.
Argos' help-side defense, which consistently plugged up driving lanes, relegated the Trojans to the perimeter where they finished 3 of 18 from 3-point range.
ROCHESTER â A little of the old, a little of the new.
Plymouth's girls swim team brought the perfect combination of experience and new talent to their season opener Tuesday, coasting to an eventual 127-58 win at Rochester.

ELKHART â The Bremen girls swimming team had its share of solid performances, but opened the season with a 108-77 loss to host Concord Tuesday night.
"The beginning of the season is really hard, especially against a tough and talented team like Concord," first-year Bremen coach Seth Donnelly said. "But the ladies did really well. They're swimming sore right now, and it's a testament to how hard they work."
BREMEN â A quiet Sunday quickly became dangerous as a major fire swept through two buildings at a local business and threatened nearby residences.

PLYMOUTH â Marshall County continues to work out employment issues in the wake of its tightening budget.
In order to meet constraints earlier in the year the Marshall County Commissioners suggested a policy to the Marshall County Council of a freeze on any new hiring and in order to continue to reduce costs, also suggested that the county adopt a reduction of employees by attrition â by not replacing employees in any department that decided to retire or leave for other employment.
