Triton players Bryson Mosier and Drew Mosson look on with Triton coaches Jason Groves and Gordon Mosson during a basketball game earlier this season at Triton.
LAKEVILLE â€” LaVilleâ€™s young team struggled with high turnover numbers against Bethany Christian, and 6-1 Bruins forward Natalie Thorne scored a game-high 17 as the Lady Lancers lost a 43-38 contest at home at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
The Lancers (2-6) surrendered 26 turnovers to Bethanyâ€™s 15, and the Bruins (4-7) capitalized with 15 points off those miscues â€”Â most of which were unforced â€” to suffer their second straight loss after a Northern State Conference setback at New Prairie Friday.
LAKEVILLE â€” Graceâ€™s baseball program has signed LaVille High Schoolâ€™s Quentin Herbster for the 2012-13 season.
Grace recruited Herbster as a versatile player with the ability to contribute as an infielder and an outfielder. As a junior, he was named First Team All-Northern State Conference for an outstanding season.
â€śI felt like Grace was where I could grow as a baseball player and could further myself spiritually,â€ť Herbster said. â€śIâ€™m excited to make an impact right away and work towards possibly a masterâ€™s degree at Grace.â€ť
