Eagles follow up 1st sectional title with Crown Point Regional crown

March 14, 2011

CROWN POINT — The Eagles followed up their first ever sectional championship with a regional crown, and they did it with a dramatic flourish.
Senior forward Juwan Brescacin’s tip-in at the buzzer bounced high off the rim before dropping back in to seal Culver Military’s 54-52 win over Western in the championship game at the Class 3A Crown Point Regional Saturday.
The Eagles will now travel to Huntington North for their northern semistate against Columbia City — which trumped Harding 55-47 to win the Blackford Regional over the weekend — Saturday at 3:15 p.m. EST.

Bluejays bow out versus Westview at home tourney

March 14, 2011

NORTH JUDSON — Coming back from a double-digit deficit is difficult. Against a team as sound as Westview, it is nearly impossible.
Down 12 to Westview at halftime of Saturday’s Class 2A regional semifinal, North Judson-San Pierre couldn’t catch up. Aggressive in desperation, the host Bluejays racked up 25 fouls and were outscored 24-10 at the foul line in a season-ending 70-57 defeat.

CGA’s Neer sets 5K indoor national record at New Balance Nationals

March 14, 2011

NEW YORK — Waverly Neer had a feeling it might take a record pace to win the women’s 5,000-meter run at the New Balance High School Indoor Track & Field Championships.
She was right. 
The Culver Girls Academy’s star senior and 2010 IHSAA state cross country champion set a national high school indoor record of 16:35.15 Friday night at New York City’s famed Armory Center and still had enough gas left in the tank for a PR in the mile race Sunday.

PHS' Davis continues stellar freshman season

March 11, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth freshman Nicky Davis has already had an outstanding gymnastics season.
Along with a slew of all-around wins throughout the year, the PHS gymnast owns the school record in the vault with a 9.4 at Saturday’s Wawasee Sectional, also good enough for runner-up honors and the highest sectional finish by a Lady Pilgrim since 2007.
And her season isn’t over yet.
Davis scored an all-around tally of 35.30 Saturday, earning her fifth place overall and qualifying her for tonight’s Valparaiso Gymnastics Regional at 7 p.m. EST.

Bluejays looking to make a run

March 10, 2011

NORTH JUDSON — Three down, four to go.
With sectionals out of the way, North Judson-San Pierre basketball coach Ryan Bales said if you’re not already thinking about a state championship, you’re just not trying very hard.

Best may be yet to come for CMA

March 9, 2011

CULVER — Winning championships is often a matter of peaking at the right time.
Culver Military Academy extended its win streak to eight games with its Sectional 19 championship victory over St. Joseph’s Saturday, and while the Eagles have played some solid basketball and even shown occasional spurts of brilliance in that stretch, head coach Mark Galloway believes he still hasn’t seen his team’s best game yet.

Triton hosts tough regional Saturday

March 8, 2011

BOURBON — Triton faces a historically tough field as the regional round of the 101st Annual IHSAA Boys State Basketball Tournament convenes this weekend.
The Trojans (20-3) take on Pioneer (15-9) in the afternoon game following the tournament opener between Morgan Township (19-4) and Fort Wayne Canterbury (17-4) with the championship slated for 7:30 p.m. EST.
If recent history is any indicator, the ultimate prize could be even bigger than a regional title. The past four champions eventually went on to the Class A state finals, where three of the four claimed state supremacy.

CMA tops St. Joe for Plymouth Sectional championship

March 7, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Two weeks ago Culver Community made program history with its first-ever regional girls basketball championship.
On Saturday, neighboring Culver Military Academies bucked its own historical trend, capturing its first sectional championship since joining the IHSAA state series 36 years ago, with a 66-57 victory over South Bend St. Joseph’s in the Class 3A Sectional 19 final at Plymouth.

Trojans rout Westville for 4th straight sectional title

March 7, 2011

BOURBON — Westville’s Kevin Stone-Tharp pulled down Clay Yeo from behind in the third quarter, depriving the Triton star of one of his patented breakaway dunks.
That was about the only thing denied Yeo and the No. 2 Trojans Saturday.
The 6-foot-5 sophomore forward scored 20 of his game-high 28 points in the first half, hauled in seven rebounds and swarmed the floor defensively to lead Triton to its fourth straight Class A Boys Basketball Sectional 50 crown, 65-37 over the Blackhawks at The Trojan Trench Saturday.

Furious rally not enough for Lions at Westview

March 7, 2011

TOPEKA — Bremen played its best quarter of the season in Saturday’s Class 2A sectional final against host Westview. Unfortunately for the Lions, it couldn’t make up for the first half.
Down 18 points at halftime, Bremen cut Westview’s lead to four in the third quarter. The Lions got no closer, as Justin Jantzi’s 30 points propelled the No. 7 Warriors to a 56-46 victory.
To Bremen coach Kyle Hanyzewski, the competitive loss coupled with Friday’s win over Fairfield showed what the Lions could do with the proper mindset.
