BOURBON â€” After splitting the Northern State Conference title with John Glenn last season, Triton has no intention of sharing this yearâ€™s championship.
With Thursdayâ€™s 67-42 win over Bremen, Class A No. 2 Triton (14-3 overall, 6-0 in Northern State) stayed perfect in conference play. With just one league game remaining, a solo title is within reach.
CULVER â€” Culver Communityâ€™s boys basketball team reclaimed the traveling bell from Argos Thursday.
Given the way the Cavs floundered down the stretch, though, the bell probably sounded a little less melodious.
Culver watched a 16-point fourth-quarter lead melt to four points in the final minute before hanging on for a 48-41 win over visiting Argos at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.
WARSAW â€” The Plymouth High School gymnastics team competed at Warsaw Thursday in just their second dual meet of the season, losing the varsity contest 98.3-86.25 but winning the JV contest 49.8-25.2.
While the loss dropped the Lady Pilgrims to 0-2 on the year, Plymouth still had some strong individual performances in the loss, led by its underclassmen. Freshman Nicky Davis continued her outstanding rookie campaign by taking home first place ribbons in all events except beam, where she finished second.
LaVille holds of Cougars
New Prairie scored 24 points in the final period, but LaVille was able to hold the visiting Cougars off 73-71 in a Northern State Conference basketball game Thursday night.
Four Lancers racked up double digits in the win, and Jordyn Williams and Andrew Hostetler both broke the 20-point mark with 27 and 23, respectively. Codee Kimbel and Trenton Stout each scored 10 as the Lancers moved to 9-7 overall and 3-3 in the NSC.

School corporations all over the state are publishing their annual performance reports using 2009 data. Under Indiana code, the reports must be made available to local newspapers and published between Jan. 24 and Feb. 14. Today, the Pilot News publishes Plymouth, Argos, John Glenn and LaVille reports in the Classified/Legal section, beginning on page B3.
The reports are for 2009 after the ISTEP (Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus) was moved to the spring for grades 3-8 rather than being given in the fall as in previous years.
