Pilgrims enjoy turnaround vs. Tippy Valley

December 8, 2010

PLYMOUTH — What a difference a day makes. Or in the case of the Plymouth Pilgrims three days.
A tough night at Rochester on Friday turned into a great night at home on Tuesday as Plymouth looked like a different team taking a 63-35 win over Tippecanoe Valley.
Plymouth turned the ball over just six times on the night in taking the win, a marked difference from Friday.

Plymouth's Eads named Colts Academic All Star

December 7, 2010

PLYMOUTH — Dedication is a common theme to excellence at anything.
Plymouth Rockie Calvin Eads is proof of that belief as the senior linebacker has been honored by the Indiana Football Coaches Association and the Indianapolis Colts as an Indiana Academic All Star Team member. Calvin is a first team defensive member and joins an elite group of 24 players around the state so honored. He is one of only three Class 4A athletes to be selected and he and his peers will will be honored in Indianapolis on December 19 at halftime of the Colts’ home game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. 

Bauer is the man of the hour for Cavs

December 4, 2010

CULVER — Slow and steady wins the race, or in this case, the basketball game.
The visiting LaCrosse Tigers were no match for Culver Community’s calm offense. Even against a LaCrosse full-court press and a defense that was trying to grab any free ball, Culver kept possession and control of the game the entire night, winning 58-41 at home Friday.

Trojans fall in OT at NorthWood

December 4, 2010

NAPPANEE — Triton’s ice-cold 3-point shooting finally caught up with it in overtime.
The Class A No. 2 Trojans connected on just 4 of 25 attempts from downtown — 0 for 6 in the extra session — and scuffled to a 28.8 percent clip from the field overall in a 50-43 overtime loss to NorthWood’s boys basketball team Friday at The Pit.
To exacerbate the frustration, the Trojans, who led most of the night, built a 35-27 advantage with 5:39 left in regulation and led until Michael Paul’s 3-pointer knotted the game at 40-all with 29 seconds to go in the fourth quarter.

Plymouth falls short at Rochester

December 4, 2010

ROCHESTER — Right guy. Right look. Wrong result.
After Rochester forward Collin Harris missed his second free throw in the double bonus with 5.5 seconds on the clock, Plymouth had a chance to send the game into overtime as forward Sean Smith pulled down the rebound and hit veteran point guard Houston Hodges streaking up the floor, but a hard foul by Zebras sophomore Jonathon O'Dell spoiled the breakaway layup and sent Hodges to the line with the Pilgrims trailing by two instead.

Young Rockies fall to NLC foe Goshen

December 4, 2010

PLYMOUTH — There were some good individual performances, and the young Rockies battled, but Plymouth's inexperience showed as it lost its Northern Lakes Conference opener to Goshen 46-18 Thursday.
Plymouth won just four bouts and gave up three pinfalls and three major decisions in the loss.

Miller clears record boards

December 4, 2010

PLYMOUTH — Alexander wept when he saw there were no more worlds left to conquer.
Kenzie Miller just gave a sly smile.
The finish wasn't dramatic, but it signified something very special as the Plymouth senior and Texas Christian University signee clocked in a full 11 seconds faster than her closest competitor, breaking the Lady Pilgrims' school record for the 100-yard breast stroke with a time of 1:10.59.

Plymouth coasts past St. Joe

December 2, 2010

PLYMOUTH — There’s an old adage in coaching that says things are never quite as bad or as good as they seem.
St. Joseph’s head coach Ric Mauch saw some positives, while Plymouth boss Dave Cox referenced The General as the Lady Pilgrims blew past the Indians 56-38 at The Rock Wednesday.

Triton shoots past Plymouth

December 1, 2010

PLYMOUTH — Just consider Clay Yeo Triton's one-time not-so-secret weapon off the bench.
Bumped from the starting lineup following a weekend bout with illness, the 6-foot-5 super sophomore erupted for 20 of his game-high 25 points in the second half and ripped down four rebounds to lead the Class A No. 2 Trojans to a 55-37 boys basketball win over Plymouth at The Rock Tuesday.
"We thought we'd give (Plymouth) the element of surprise," Triton head coach Jason Groves joked. "I'm sure they weren't expecting (Yeo) to do anything off the bench.

Falcons can't keep pace with athletic Wildcats

December 1, 2010

WALKERTON — John Glenn may eventually be able to use its team speed against opponents this year, but South Bend Riley gave the Falcons a dose of their own medicine Tuesday.
The athletic Wildcats showcased their quickness and athleticism while cranking up the tempo on both ends of the floor for a 79-49 victory in Walkerton.
"I know they don't want to run with us per se, but they also don't want to walk it," said Riley head boys basketball coach Mark Johnson. "I think we presented a tempo to where they were a little bit rushed. That's a credit to our young men."
