PLYMOUTH â€” Twice is nice, but the third time is definitely the charm.
Just ask Plymouth senior Damon Howe.
Coming off a three-peat Northern Lakes Conference championship turn last weekend, the heavyweight earned yet another three-peat as he captured the Rockies their lone sectional championship as the Rockies placed fourth behind Culver Military, while Warsaw won the meet, Bremen finished fifth, Culver was eighth and Triton placed ninth at the Plymouth Wrestling Sectional Saturday.
CULVER â€”Â The honors just keep rolling in for Culver Communityâ€™s girls basketball team.
Just seven days after seizing the programâ€™s first Bi-County crown since 1995, the Class 2A No. 6 Lady Cavs captured the Northern State Conference championship â€”Â also their first in 16 years â€”Â with a 45-36 win over visiting LaVille at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Saturday.
And with New Prairieâ€™s 40-38 loss at Bremen Saturday, Culver, riding a 12-game winning streak, claimed the title outright with one game left on the league ledger.
MERRILLVILLE â€” After suffering a close loss earlier in the week to West Noble, Plymouth gymnastics traveled to Merrillville Saturday where the Lady Pilgrims had to face five Top 20 teams at the Pirate Pride Invitational.
Plymouth scored a season-high 83.3 at Merrillville but still finished in eighth place at the loaded 10-team meet, which was won by No. 8 Portage with a score of 106.125.
Plymouth scored season high team scores on all four events, led by freshman Nicky Davis.
DUNLAP â€” Led by four scoring swims from lone senior Poaolo Palmitessa, Plymouth tallied a 112 to finish sixth out of eight teams, while Northridge won with a dominant 521 at the Northern Lakes Conference Championships Saturday at Concord.
Palmitessa opened and closed the day for the Pilgrims, swimming the opening leg of Plymouthâ€™s 200 medley relay and the anchor for the Pilgrimsâ€™ 400 free relay team, both of which placed sixth. He also finished 10th individually in both the 200-yard Individual Medley and 100-yard breast stroke as Plymouth scored points in 10 of 14 events at the NLC meet.
MISHAWAKA â€”Â Brock Smith led the Pilgrims to their second straight win as Plymouth scored 23 points in the fourth quarter to rally past Mishawaka for a 49-41 victory on the road Saturday.
In just his second game back after being sidelined with a shoulder injury, Smith scored a game-high 16 points, pulled down four rebounds and pilfered three steals after leading Plymouth to a lopsided 44-38 Northern Lakes Conference win over Northridge with nine points Friday.
