HAMLET â€” They must have something in the soil to the west.
Hensler Nurseryâ€™s of Hamlet took two of their Christmas trees to the Indiana State Fair this month and came home batting 1.000. An eight foot White Pine entered in the contest took home a Grand Champion prize and a seven foot Frazer Fir was named reserve champion. Each brought home blue ribbons.
LAKEVILLE â€” LaVille might have come up short of the win, but the Lady Lancers still walked off the court with something of a moral victory Monday.
After falling behind two games to visiting Goshen, the Lancers refused to surrender in the final game, running out the game 10-10 but still losing a prolonged 30-28 battle in a 25-21, 25-15, 30-28 loss at home.
â€śI love their effort. Iâ€™m not really disappointed when they lose when they play like they did,â€ť said LaVille head coach Leslie-ann Bloss. â€śTheyâ€™ve come a long way from where they were in the beginning of the season."
ARGOS â€” After a tentative 1-0 win over LaPorte in the first round of the Argos girls soccer invitational, the Argos girls soccer team looked to face stiffer competition in Munster. The Mustangs handled LaVille 3-0 in their semifinal and returned 10 seniors from last yearâ€™s semi-state squad. The Dragons, however, stepped up to the challenge before falling 2-1 in overtime.
Plymouth finished its home volleyball tournament 0-3 as Muncie Burris won the championship Saturday.
Haley Smart led the Lady Pilgrims with 23 total kills for the tournament, while Meagan Barron had 49 assists. Lindsay Renz recorded 16 digs overall as Plymouth slid to 3-5 on the season.

ETNA GREEN â€” A 13-year-old Etna Green boy lost his life Saturday morning as a result of a tragic accident that took place on his familyâ€™s farm.
Wyman Lynn Miller, an eighth grade student at Triton Jr.-Sr. High School, went out at about 6 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 28 to gather 14 horses, most of them Belgian Draft horses, from a wooded area behind the family farm at 8409 West, CR 750 North to send them back to the barn to be fed.
He brought back four of them but when he didnâ€™t return with more, his brothers went to look for him and found him unconcious.
