Plymouthâ€™s Sam Stevens runs the ball against Northridge Friday.
Stevens earned this week's Teachers Credit Union Male Athlete of the Week honors as he gained 165 yards and rushed for two touchdowns in a 37-13 Northern Lakes Conference defeat of the Raiders.
Triton won the No. 2 singles and both doubles championships to finish with 20 points ahead of host Rileyâ€™s 18 points, while Bremen finished third with 11 points at the Wildcat Invitational Saturday.
As the entire country prepares to remember the event which arguably defined the lives of a generation -- the attacks on America on September 11, 2001 -- during this, the tenth anniversary of its occurance, we pay a visit to two Culverites (one past and one present)
who were there for the attacks. It happens both men were at the Pentagon that day for work-related reasons, though both have somewhat different perspectives on the attacks.
KNOX - The results of the audit conducted on the 2010 records for the county treasurer has been returned. The results were discussed at a special meeting Friday evening that was conducted by Starke County Council President Mark Smith, and Starke County Commission Pesident Dan Bridegroom, and Starke County Commissioner Kathy Norem.
PLYMOUTH â€” Sam Stevens and the Rockie Express kept rolling right along Friday night.
The junior fullback rambled 29 times for 162 yards and two scores, helping Plymouth pull away for a 37-13 victory over Northridge in Northern Lakes Conference football action at The Rockpile.
Clinging to a 15-13 lead early in the third quarter, the 6-foot, 180-pound Stevens found an opening and raced 27 yards to cap off a six-play, 61-yard march to give the Rockies (3-1, 2-0 NLC) a little breathing room.
BREMEN â€”Â Triton Head Coach Rodney Younis knew his team was going to have to put up some points to contend with host Bremen.
Instead the Lions defensive unit created six turnovers while pitching a shutout against the visiting Trojans, and the result was a lopsided 41-0 Northern State Conference win at home Friday at Don Bunge Field.
LAKEVILLE â€“ If you blinked during the first half Friday night, you probably missed a John Glenn score or two.
The visiting Falcons, who crossed the goal line in each of their seven first-half possessions, fired off 50 points before the break â€” highlighted by four touchdowns from superstar senior running back Josh Anderson â€“ en route to a 50-7 Northern State Conference football win over LaVille at Lancer Field.

Hogan averaged better than 17 yards per carry as he ran amok at New Prairie, scoring on touchdown runs of 84, 34, 1 and 61 yards.
KNOX â€” The 2010 Starke County Treasurer's audit has been released by the state. And according to the report, Starke County Auditor Kay Chaffins has been successful in locating hundreds of thousands of dollars that appeared to be missing due to errors in record keeping.
Because of the condition of the treasurer's records, the state had to rely upon the Starke County auditor's funds ledger, unsettled receipts, receipts in transit and an outstanding checklist.
