A fond farewell

January 13, 2011

Former John Glenn girls basketball coach Dan Hutton, right, looks on during a game last year along with longtime assistant and current Glenn head coach John Willoughby, left.

Hutton lost his battle with cancer Tuesday night. Hutton’s coaching career spans a combined 22 years and his resume boasts three Bi-County Championships, two sectional and two regional championships and a 158-111 overall high school coaching record.
Hutton was honored on Nov. 30 with the John Glenn Falcon of the Year Award and the Northern State Conference Service Award.

Trojans start fast in win over Glenn

January 13, 2011

BOURBON — In a game teeming with subplots, Griffyn Carpenter reached the 1,000-point mark, and the Trojans got off to a quick start and didn’t look back as they took it to Triton head coach Jason Groves’ alma mater Glenn and Falcons’ head coach Travis Hannah, himself a Triton alum.
With inclement weather reeking havoc on both teams’ schedules — indeed, Wednesday’s Northern State Conference game was a rescheduling of a postponement Saturday — both coaches wanted to see their team hit the floor ready.

Emmons honored as Charger of the Year

January 12, 2011

PLYMOUTH — “I”’m overwhelmed and so proud to have been a part of my school. I”’m just overwhelmed by all of this.”

OD basketball wiz Richie relies on family

January 11, 2011

KNOX — Have you ever heard the term “Unstoppable Force?”
It’s the best term to describe Oregon-Davis guard Zach Richie, who has been tearing up the court this season. Richie has racked up more than 40 points in eight consecutive games and boasts an average of 43 points per game. That’s quite an accomplishment for this junior, but it’s definitely not surprising.

Lancers beat Bremen, reach milestone

January 11, 2011

LAKEVILLE — Sophomore forward Katie Berger shot her way to a career-high 16 points Monday night against Bremen, and helped the Lady Lancers reach a milestone in the process.
Berger went 3-of-4 from beyond the arc in the first half to help keep LaVille within range as Bremen grabbed a 28-25 halftime lead, while the Lancers’ defense shut down the Lions for a 13-point swing in the third quarter, and LaVille held off their pesky Northern State Conference rivals to claim a 51-47 win over Bremen at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Monday.

Borlik powers Falcons past Triton

January 11, 2011

BOURBON — Only Jacy Borlik could stop Jacy Borlik.
And after sitting the entire second quarter with two fouls, the John Glenn senior looked in no mood to hit the brake pedal in the second half.
Even with the lengthy break, the 5-foot-8 Borlik piled up 23 points, eight rebounds, and four steals — all game highs — and delivered two key plays down the stretch as the Falcons repelled a furious Triton fourth-quarter rally en route to a 47-35 Northern State Conference girls basketball win at The Trojan Trench Friday.

Plymouth falls in OT... again

January 11, 2011

PLYMOUTH — It was like watching a bad rerun. All over again.
For the second straight game, Plymouth battled down to the wire only to fall short in overtime.
It was also the team’s third loss to be decided in extra periods this season, and, as in their first such loss to Peru, second quarter mistakes came back to haunt the Pilgrims as visiting Elkhart Memorial put the game away at the line, handing their hosts another heartbreaker, 55-47, in a Northern Lakes Conference game at The Rock Friday.

LaVille withstands late Bremen rally, 47-36

January 11, 2011

BREMEN — Up 18 points at halftime, LaVille coach Michael Edison warned his team that historically-scrappy Bremen was capable of a big second half-run. He was right.
Bremen clawed back and trailed by five with 3 minutes remaining, but LaVille put the game away at the free throw line in a 47-36 victory.
“Bremen’s only won one game, but they’re the type of team that battles,” Edison said. “I’m proud of our guys for their composure. It’s easy when things are going well, but it’s about how you react when things aren’t going well. I was happy how they finished the game off.”

Rockies wrestle tough in loss to Elkhart Memorial

January 7, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth was facing an uphill battle against Northern Lakes Conference-undefeated Elkhart Memorial Thursday, and while they weren’t able to claim the team win, several Rockies wrestlers outworked opponents for comeback victories at The Rock.
“Memorial is extremely tough,” said Plymouth head wrestling coach Bob Read. “We knew we were outgunned. We’ve got some kids still out of the lineup... so we knew that it was going to be tough, but I thought we battled as hard as I’ve seen for quite awhile, in the midst of knowing it was going to be a dogfight.”
