Area teams compete at Plymouth Sectional

January 31, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Twice is nice, but the third time is definitely the charm.
Just ask Plymouth senior Damon Howe.
Coming off a three-peat Northern Lakes Conference championship turn last weekend, the heavyweight earned yet another three-peat as he captured the Rockies their lone sectional championship as the Rockies placed fourth behind Culver Military, while Warsaw won the meet, Bremen finished fifth, Culver was eighth and Triton placed ninth at the Plymouth Wrestling Sectional Saturday.

Culver collects NSC crown against LaVille

January 31, 2011

CULVER — The honors just keep rolling in for Culver Community’s girls basketball team.
Just seven days after seizing the program’s first Bi-County crown since 1995, the Class 2A No. 6 Lady Cavs captured the Northern State Conference championship — also their first in 16 years — with a 45-36 win over visiting LaVille at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Saturday.
And with New Prairie’s 40-38 loss at Bremen Saturday, Culver, riding a 12-game winning streak, claimed the title outright with one game left on the league ledger.

January 31, 2011

Plymouth scored a season-high 83.3 at Merrillville but still finished in eighth place at the loaded 10-team meet, which was won by No. 8 Portage with a score of 106.125.
Plymouth scored season high team scores on all four events, led by freshman Nicky Davis.

Plymouth boys show improvement in 6th-place finish at NLC swim meet

January 31, 2011

DUNLAP — Led by four scoring swims from lone senior Poaolo Palmitessa, Plymouth tallied a 112 to finish sixth out of eight teams, while Northridge won with a dominant 521 at the Northern Lakes Conference Championships Saturday at Concord.
Palmitessa opened and closed the day for the Pilgrims, swimming the opening leg of Plymouth’s 200 medley relay and the anchor for the Pilgrims’ 400 free relay team, both of which placed sixth. He also finished 10th individually in both the 200-yard Individual Medley and 100-yard breast stroke as Plymouth scored points in 10 of 14 events at the NLC meet.

Brock Smith leads Pilgrims to 2nd straight win

January 31, 2011

MISHAWAKA — Brock Smith led the Pilgrims to their second straight win as Plymouth scored 23 points in the fourth quarter to rally past Mishawaka for a 49-41 victory on the road Saturday.
In just his second game back after being sidelined with a shoulder injury, Smith scored a game-high 16 points, pulled down four rebounds and pilfered three steals after leading Plymouth to a lopsided 44-38 Northern Lakes Conference win over Northridge with nine points Friday.

Lancers step up again

January 29, 2011

LAKEVILLE — On another night, LaVille head coach Michael Edison might have worried about a letdown.
After all, the Lancers were coming off a big win against Rochester Tuesday, their first in 14 years to be exact. And it was Homecoming week in Lancerland, with all the distractions that entails.

Falcons dominate the paint in win over Knox

January 29, 2011

WALKERTON — Size mattered for John Glenn Friday. And strength. And depth. And quickness. And offensive balance.
The Falcons utilized all five of those qualities to work the ball inside, and finish, in a 67-46 Northern State Conference boys basketball win over visiting Knox at The Aerie.
With Knox standout Josh Risner sidelined for the evening by what Redskins head coach Todd Boldry termed “a violation of team rules,” the Falcons opened the second half with a game-changing 17-1 run to convert a five-point halftime edge into a 44-23 lead with 2:53 left in the third frame.

New Prairie shoots down Bremen in fourth quarter, 67-51

January 29, 2011

NEW CARLISLE — Sometimes a close game can get away in the blink of an eye, like in Friday night’s meeting between Bremen and host New Prairie.
Bremen trailed by six points going into the fourth quarter, but a 19-5 New Prairie run pushed the Cougars to a 67-51 victory.
It was an unfortunate result for Bremen, which played some of its best basketball of the season through three quarters.

Trinity holds Richie to 22 in OD Homecoming spoiler

January 29, 2011

HAMLET — Trinity’s plan was to keep Zach Richie down.
Their plan was more successful than they could have hoped, and Trinity left Oregon-Davis with a win at the Bobcats’ Homecoming, 72-59.
“We knew we had to stop Zach,” Trinity head coach Mark Havard said. “We knew he was their big scorer. We knew he was a tough competitor, but we were up for the challenge. “
Big scorer might be an understatement. As a junior, the Bobcat is only 28 points shy of 1000, and only five points shy of O-D’s record of most points scored in a season. But the Titans were certainly up to the challenge.
