The national traveling exhibit âLincoln: The ConstituÂtion and the Civil Warâ will begin a five-week stay at the Culver Academiesâ Huffington Library with a grand openÂing on Sunday, Oct. 14, from 2 to 4 p.m.
At the opening, visitors will step back in time as AcadÂemiesâ students in Civil War dress guide them through the exhibition and the displays highlighting events from the era. Period music will be provided by an Academies enÂsemble, and refreshments will be served.
A throng of hundreds braved chilly winds off Lake MaxÂinkuckee Friday, Oct. 5 for the official dedication of Culver Academies' majestic new White Devries Rowing Center, which not only replaces the longtime "crew shed" at the eastern end of the campus, but places in Culver a rowing facility to compare with the finest in the world.
FULTON â Argos sophomore striker Damon Binkley has already put in plenty of hero moments for his team this season.
On Thursday, he added a few more.
Fresh off his sectional championship-sealing score in the final minute against Bremen last Saturday, Binkley notched a hat trick and an assist, helping power the Dragons to a 4-2 Caston Regional Semifinal win over Carroll.
The Eagles have a lot to play for tonight.
At the start of the season, Culver Military head football coach Andy Dorrel had a hunch this yearâs squad might be able to have a special season, and at 6-2, his team is on the verge of its first perfect home slate since 2005, which has included wins over Class A No. 1 Lafayette Central Catholic and Class 2A No. 4 Churubusco in Weeks 4 and 7.
A win over Fairfield tonight would provide a fitting Senior Night capper to the Eaglesâ regular season as well as a good springboard into CMAâs Sectional 17 opener at John Glenn next week.
PLYMOUTH â To think, one of Plymouthâs all-time best tennis players was nearly a soccer player instead.
Last Saturday, Pilgrims senior No. 1 Gabe Vervynckt became the schoolâs first LaPorte Regional qualifier in recent memory at the Culver Military Individual Sectional. His 7-5, 7-5 win over previously unbeaten North Judson foreign exchange student Thomas Simon earned him the right to advance and pushed him to a career record of 72-26 at Plymouth, a program record for singles wins.
But in the weeks before his freshman tennis season, Veryvnckt was leaning towards soccer instead.
