Glenn runs over New Prairie

October 30, 2010

NEW CARLISLE — The Glenn Wing-T rushing attack had three modes of
operation in Friday's Class 3A Sectional 17 semifinal victory.
Over, around and through.
Led by senior Collin Howard and junior Josh Anderson, the Falcons
rumbled for 324 yards in a 34-0 victory over host New Prairie.

Academy, in next week's sectional championship.

Grubbs hopes to bring home world title

October 29, 2010

PLYMOUTH — In a few months one local athlete will be competing for a national title.
Mike Grubbs of Plymouth will head to Mesquite, Nev. — just outside of Las Vegas — in early December to make his bid for a world title as a member of Team USA in the XXXII World Armwrestling Champion-ships.
Grubbs, who won a qualifier in Montana and the right to be one of two athletes on the team in his weight class, is hardly new to the sport.
“I guess I’ve been at it for about 30 years,” he said. “I went to the very first armwrestling competition at the Blueberry Festival and won that, and I’ve s

CGA, Bremen's Jordan prep for state race

October 29, 2010

TERRE HAUTE — Culver Academies head cross country coach Michael Chastain knew his girls would be facing an uphill climb at semistate.

Sectional 2nd helpings: Cavs host Whiting

October 28, 2010

CULVER — After an unprecedented 5-0 start to the season, Culver Community hit the skids in Week 6.
Beset by injuries and other personnel problems, the Cavaliers went on a three-game losing streak and fell out of the Class A rankings in the process.
But Culver’s roster returned to full strength, the Cavs righted the ship in Week 9 with their first regular-season win over Northern State Conference foe LaVille in three years, and opened Sectional 33 play with a 49-7 rout over Lake Central on the road last week.
And they’ve learned some lessons along the way.

Bremen senior Hope Jordan earns state berth

October 25, 2010

FORT WAYNE — The team season might be over for the Bremen girls cross country squad, but the state’s biggest race remains for one Lions senior.
Bremen finished 12th in Saturday’s New Haven cross country semi-state at The Plex, an expected result considering the quality of the 20-team field.

‘Zak Attack’ strikes in Trojans’ win

October 23, 2010

BOURBON — With one last flying leap Triton defensive back Zak Shively spread out over the goal line for a third-quarter go-ahead touchdown.
From there, the junior quarterback half of the “Zak Attack” took over for the Trojans.
For the game, Shively threw a trio of touchdown passes — one each to Jordan Koontz, Jake Tutorow, and Taran Kennedy — rushed untouched for an 18-yard score, and plunged in for a 2-point conversion following his 19-yard fumble return to lead the Trojans to a 34-19 win over visiting West Central in Class A Sectional 33 first-round action Friday.

Heartbreak at The Rockpile

October 23, 2010

PLYMOUTH — They say it is a game of inches, and Plymouth’s Rockies certainly believe that this morning.
