PLYMOUTH â Current Plymouth Mayor Mark Senter made it official Thursday morning, speaking to the monthly Republican breakfast when he announced that he will seek a second term as Mayor of the city.
Saying he loves his job, Senter went on to thank his wife Leanne; City Attorney Nelson Chipman; Clerk-Treasurer Toni Hutchings; the Plymouth Common Council; department heads and employees of the city for their help and patience during his first term. He also called his recently deceased father, Wayne, his inspiration.
LAKEVILLE â Culver Communityâs Patrice McBee dug deep into her bag of offensive tricks Thursday night in the Bi-County Girls Basketball Tournament semifinals.
With conventional low-post work, a short jumper, a dribble drive, a roll to the bucket, and a left-handed drive and right-handed finish on the baseline, the 6-foot-3 senior showcased her offensive versatility with a game-high 21 points to lead the Cavs to a 59-34 win over Argos.
LAKEVILLE â A lot can change in nine weeks.
When Oregon-Davis first took the floor at Triton in early November, the Lady Bobcats were essentially an eighth-grade team with virtually no returners from last yearâs Sectional 50 championship campaign, and the Trojans handed them their first loss in two years.
The names and the faces were the same, but there were few other resemblances between the Class A, No. 4 Bobcats that hit the hardwood in that game and the one that played Triton Thursday.
