Slippery roads to blame for crash

January 13, 2011

PLYMOUTH — A slippery road at the intersection of Olive Trail and Overmyer Drive in Plymouth were to blame for a one-vehicle accident Sunday afternoon. At 12:45 p.m. Howard Holland, Plymouth, 85, was driving a red 2002 Dodge Caravan south on Overmyer Drive and attempted to turn right onto Olive Trail but his van kept on turning.

Trojans start fast in win over Glenn

January 13, 2011

BOURBON — In a game teeming with subplots, Griffyn Carpenter reached the 1,000-point mark, and the Trojans got off to a quick start and didn’t look back as they took it to Triton head coach Jason Groves’ alma mater Glenn and Falcons’ head coach Travis Hannah, himself a Triton alum.
With inclement weather reeking havoc on both teams’ schedules — indeed, Wednesday’s Northern State Conference game was a rescheduling of a postponement Saturday — both coaches wanted to see their team hit the floor ready.
