HAMLET â€” â€śFight like a girl, Christina!â€ť has become the rallying cry for the Oregon-Davis Bobcats in support of their team manager, Christina Rotering. Rotering is battling lymphoblastic lymphoma, a form of non-Hodgskinâ€™s Lymphoma that usually occurs in children. She was diagnosed with this cancer in May 2007, but, to everyoneâ€™s relief, went into remission three months later. The cancer became active again in her spine in August 2008, but she entered a second remission.
PLYMOUTH -- Anyone whoâ€™s watched â€śZorro,â€ť â€śPirates of the Caribbean,â€ť even â€śStar Wars,â€ť or other films showcasing swashbuckling swordplay can appreciate Rebecca Schneiderâ€™s initial interest in the sport of fencing. And now, as part of her passion for bringing the sport to the Marshall County community, they can also try their hand at a few moves...or possibly embark on a lifelong love of fencing as Schneider herself wound up (inadvertently doing), starting in the early 1990s.
LAKEVILLE â€” On another night, LaVille head coach Michael Edison might have worried about a letdown.
After all, the Lancers were coming off a big win against Rochester Tuesday, their first in 14 years to be exact. And it was Homecoming week in Lancerland, with all the distractions that entails.
WALKERTON â€”Â Size mattered for John Glenn Friday. And strength. And depth. And quickness. And offensive balance.
The Falcons utilized all five of those qualities to work the ball inside, and finish, in a 67-46 Northern State Conference boys basketball win over visiting Knox at The Aerie.
With Knox standout Josh Risner sidelined for the evening by what Redskins head coach Todd Boldry termed â€śa violation of team rules,â€ť the Falcons opened the second half with a game-changing 17-1 run to convert a five-point halftime edge into a 44-23 lead with 2:53 left in the third frame.
NEW CARLISLE â€” Sometimes a close game can get away in the blink of an eye, like in Friday nightâ€™s meeting between Bremen and host New Prairie.
Bremen trailed by six points going into the fourth quarter, but a 19-5 New Prairie run pushed the Cougars to a 67-51 victory.
It was an unfortunate result for Bremen, which played some of its best basketball of the season through three quarters.
HAMLET â€” Trinityâ€™s plan was to keep Zach Richie down.
Their plan was more successful than they could have hoped, and Trinity left Oregon-Davis with a win at the Bobcatsâ€™ Homecoming, 72-59.
â€śWe knew we had to stop Zach,â€ť Trinity head coach Mark Havard said. â€śWe knew he was their big scorer. We knew he was a tough competitor, but we were up for the challenge. â€ś
Big scorer might be an understatement. As a junior, the Bobcat is only 28 points shy of 1000, and only five points shy of O-Dâ€™s record of most points scored in a season. But the Titans were certainly up to the challenge.
