GOSHEN â€” 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.
PLYMOUTH â€” When Sarah Hendrix, executive director of Marshall County Neighborhood Center, was approached by Boy Scout Corey Celmer about doing his Eagle Scout project, she was happy and relieved.
â€śThe outside of the center had been somewhat neglected,â€ť she said, â€śand the shrubs and plants had gone way beyond their usefulness.â€ť
But, after the three-month project was competed, she was absolutely amazed, she said, at the extent to which Celmer and his crew had improved the exterior.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth fire personnel responded to an alarm Sunday night at the Marshall County Historical Museum in downtown Plymouth.

CULVER â€” Culver Communityâ€™s Collin Stevens selected a perfect time to unveil his offensive capabilities.Â

â€śCollin Stevens was the difference in the ball game in the second half,â€ť Culver head coach Kyle Elliott said. â€śCollin Stevens stepped up his offensive play, and he played a great game defensively. He played a great floor game at both ends.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” With so many new faces, Plymouth showed its inexperience early.
Once the shots started falling for the Pilgrims, however, they didnâ€™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 â€” including two by versatile big man Sean Smith and another pair from newcomer Ryan McNeil â€” for a 15-2 run and eventual 46-27 season-opening win over the Lions at The Rock Saturday.
PLYMOUTH â€” Several hundred hardy souls braved the cold to welcome a renowned world traveler to Plymouth for his yearly visit last night.

In his first appearance in town, Santa greeted local kids eager to see him, lit the city Christmas tree along with Plymouth Mayor Mark Senter, and posed for photo ops.
