State title a fitting capstone for CGA runner Neer's XC career

November 8, 2010

CULVER — In some ways, it was a culmination. In others, it provided a perfect symbol.
Culver Girls Academy’s Waverly Neer survived the second-closest battle in Indiana girls cross country history by edging out Bloomington South’s Nicole Lucas by .7 of a second to win the 30th annual Girls State Cross Country Championship at the Wabash Valley Sports Center in Terre Haute and claim the state title that had eluded her through three years of running with the Eagles.

Bremen brings home Class 2A sectional crown

November 6, 2010

GARRETT — After 13 years, the wait is over.
With 341 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns from junior Braxton Miller, Bremen won its first sectional championship since 1997 with a 35-21 victory over Garrett Friday night.
“What an outstanding night for Bremen football, our community, the kids, coaching staff, everybody,” Bremen coach Bob Holmes said. “To win a sectional championship and to be 9-3 after going 3-9 last year, it shows how hard these kids have worked.”
Miller had 33 carries for 289 yards and one catch for 52 yards, for an average of 10 yards every time he touched the ball.

1st play from scrimmage sets bad tone for Falcons

November 6, 2010

MERRILLVILLE — Andrean's Mason Zurek set the tone from the get-go and John Glenn never recovered.
Zurek hustled 76 yards to the end zone on the first play from scrimmage as the 59ers ran away with a 56-14 win over the Falcons in the Class 3A Sectional 17 championship battle Friday at Eckert Stadium.
Andrean, which collected its fourth straight sectional title, amassed more than 400 total yards — 374 on the ground — and notched three rushing touchdowns apiece from Zurek and Demetri Blanco. Blanco also threw a 51-yard scoring pass to Christian Hood.

'Snow' fun for Culver in final

November 6, 2010

CULVER — The snow was falling in flurries in the second half, but it was Culver's two turnovers in the first half that ultimately made the difference.
Culver's opening drive stalled at the South Central 12 in the first quarter, and the Cavaliers coughed up a fumble and an interception inside their own territory for a pair of Satellite touchdowns within a 2-minute span of the second quarter en route to a 20-7 Sectional 33 championship victory at Culver Friday.

Plymouth's Kinney earns academic distinction

November 2, 2010

November 1, 2010

Hope Jordan caps off outstanding Bremen CC season

November 1, 2010

BREMEN — A coach’s expectations can be hard to surpass, but the Bremen girls cross country team did so this fall.
Coach Mick Gardner’s Lions won the Northern State Conference title and went to semi-state as a team, while senior Hope Jordan made it to state as an individual.
“I didn’t think we’d make it that far at the beginning of the year,” Gardner said. “I thought we had a good shot at making it out of the sectional. They surprised me in individual races and in how far we made it as a group. It was a lot of fun.”

Culver survives gridiron war with Whiting

October 30, 2010

CULVER — Less than 7 minutes into the game, it was plain to see this one would be a war.
Whiting and Culver both scored on their first two possessions to put the score at 14-all by the 5:34 mark of the first frame, and even with the Cavaliers leading 42-21 with just over 8 minutes on the game clock, the outcome was still up for grabs.
