WALKERTON â€” John Glenn stayed in the hunt for a Northern State Conference title, while LaVilleâ€™s Trenton Stout continued his spectacular season as the Falcons beat the Lancers 4-1 at home Tuesday.
Glenn players won on all courts but at 1 singles, where Stout trumped Trey Rhodes in a competitive three-set victory.
The Falcons move to 2-1 in the NSC and are still in control of their conference destiny as they head into a match against 3-0 Bremen Thursday.
Plymouth's Ounce of Prevention Foundation will team up with the Plymouth High School Volleyball team for an event to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research and care.
On Thursday night in their game against Warsaw the girls will sell Ounce of Prevention t-shirts and pass a bucket for donations as well as donning pink uniforms for the contest to raise awareness. The JV game starts at 5:30 p.m. at Plymouth High School.
BOURBON â€” Kyra Hackworth is one of those people who canâ€™t take no for an answer.
The young student at Triton hasnâ€™t allowed a car accident that took use of her legs away from her to stop her from doing things she wants to do. With the encouragement of her physical therapist at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center/Plymouth, Eric Holsopple, Kyra participated in this yearâ€™s Bluebarry Stomp for the first time.
PLYMOUTH â€” While budget adoption lay in wait, the Marshall County Council had regular business to conduct and part of that was finding money to pay for the new Pioneer Drive.
The project is being built with a 80/20 match from federal funds administered by the Indiana Department of Transportation. Marshall County Highway Superintendent Neal Haeck came before the Council with several transfers of funds from his department to pay the bills. In the arrangement, the county pays for bills up front with reimbursement coming from INDOT.
PLYMOUTH â€” Members of the Marshall County Council had their pencils sharpened but they didnâ€™t have to dig too deep to find the cuts necessary to meet budget goals for the coming year.
The projected final budget for Marshall County will be $10,594,073. The Marshall County Commissioners had requested that the Council not cut the budget below $10.3 million so as not to affect the tax rate for the county.
PLYMOUTH â€” It was an evening that brought 50 years of Marshall County history and caring into the same room for a celebration, but while the evening may have finally come to an end, the caring â€” and the task ahead for United Way of Marshall County â€” has not.
â€śI have the distinction to provide closing remarks for this celebration,â€ť said Unit-ed Way Board President Rick Kreps, summing up Saturday eveningâ€™s festivities. â€śItâ€™s an honor to do so and a very simple task. Thatâ€™s because there is no closing.â€ť
He explained the need for the United Way is a continuous one.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Despite an even 7-7 shot margin, Plymouth fell 2-0 in a Northern Lakes Conference girls soccer match with Northridge at home at Kindt Field Saturday.
Northridgeâ€™s speed proved to be a difference-maker in the contest.
â€śWeâ€™re certainly not the quickest team. We rely on possession ball and we rely on the ability to make good runs and for players to check to the ball,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Joe Morris. â€śAgainst a team like this that does a good job of using their speed, weâ€™ve got to be smarter, and weâ€™ve got to play really, really precise soccer.â€ť
