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."

Triton surges past Bethany Christian

November 30, 2010

GOSHEN — Locked in a 19-all tie at the half, Triton head coach Adam Heckaman decided to take a gamble in the second half.
Switch up to a man-to-man defense to deny easy buckets in the paint and take a chance against Bethany Christian senior small forward Marla ZumFelde.
The gamble worked as sophomore Shana Anderson held ZumFelde to just four of her game-high 14 points after the break, and the Lady Trojans surged past the host Bruins for a 50-39 win at Goshen Monday.

Stevens steps up in Cavs’ win over West Central

November 29, 2010

CULVER — Culver Community’s Collin Stevens selected a perfect time to unveil his offensive capabilities. 
With Culver senior standout Zoe Bauer’s open glances at a minimum, Stevens connected for 12 of his 15 points during the second half to help the Cavs to a 52-46 boys basketball win over visiting West Central at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Saturday.
“Collin Stevens was the difference in the ball game in the second half,” Culver head coach Kyle Elliott said. “Collin Stevens stepped up his offensive play, and he played a great game defensively. He played a great floor game at both ends.”

Plymouth wins opener vs. Bremen

November 29, 2010

PLYMOUTH — With so many new faces, Plymouth showed its inexperience early.
Once the shots started falling for the Pilgrims, however, they didn’t stop.
Plymouth got off to a shaky start, falling behind 5-4 at the first quarter break, but its defense clamped down on Bremen in the second frame, and the home team started knocking down some shots from deep — including two by versatile big man Sean Smith and another pair from newcomer Ryan McNeil — for a 15-2 run and eventual 46-27 season-opening win over the Lions at The Rock Saturday.

Bremen defensive in win over Argos

November 26, 2010

ARGOS — Bremen boys basketball coach Kyle Hanyzewski was itching to see his new-look Lions play.
You could see why during Wednesday’s season opener.
With stifling defense, Bremen jumped out to an early 18-point lead and cruised to a 44-29 victory over Argos.
“I came here saying we wanted to be 1-0, and we are,” Hanyzewski said. “As a coach and perfectionist I’m going to critique some things I didn’t like, but the bottom line is 1-0.”
Bremen’s pressure on the ball forced 24 turnovers, eight during the first quarter, which set the tone for the entire game.

Glenn gets off to shaky start but survives at Clay

November 26, 2010

SOUTH BEND — John Glenn racked up 25 turnovers, missed 19 free throws, surrendered 16 unanswered points in the first frame — and still won.
Of course, South Bend Clay clanked 15 charity tries, struggled to a 36 percent mark from the field against Glenn’s 2-3 zone and man defenses, and suffered persistent foul trouble itself.
In the season debut for both teams that looked every bit of it, the Falcons nailed all seven of their third-quarter offerings from the field, including four from downtown, to escape with a 61-54 boys basketball victory over the host Colonials Wednesday.
