WALKERTON â€” Siblings Patrick Luther and Jessica Beam are gearing up for the second year of â€śThe Walk of Nightmaresâ€ť a haunted trail that theyâ€™ve spent years developing.
â€śThe haunted trail started as a Halloween party we threw annually,â€ť said Luther. â€śEventually people just came to go on the trail.â€ť
Luther and Beam decided to open the trail to the public last year. Thereâ€™s no cost to attend, but Luther hopes that the trail will create awareness of his fledgling company, Room 47 Productions.
PLYMOUTH â€” A rough second game doomed an otherwise valiant effort for Plymouthâ€™s Lady Pilgrims as they fell to class 3A No. 6 ranked Mishawaka Marian in three games 25-20, 25-12, 25-22 in the opener of the Plymouth Sectional.
The loss also ends an impressive 11 game season-ending win streak for the Lady Pilgrims, who came out of the locker room as if they might be able to extend it to 12.
CULVER â€” Itâ€™s never too late in the season to do a little team-building, especially with a new lineup.
After pulling freshman Jaela Meister up from the JV and moving players around in the lineup late in the season, Tritonâ€™s volleyball team took advantage of a day off before its Sectional 51 opener with South Central at Culver.
The Lady Trojans hung out, relaxed, even had lunch together.
That bonding time paid big dividends Tuesday night as Tritonâ€™s players gelled for a 25-23, 25-19, 25-22 sectional-opening win over the Satellites to advance to Saturdayâ€™s semifinals.
PLYMOUTH â€” While itâ€™s unlikely that either team will ditch the playbook for a new one this week, the approach to this weeks version of Plymouth vs. NorthWood will be different mostly from the mental approach.
â€śThis is a first for us,â€ť said Plymouth Head Coach John Barron. â€śWeâ€™ve never played a team back to back. Weâ€™ve played them two or three weeks apart but never back to back. As a (coaching) staff we just went through film, looked at the things we did well, looked at the things they did well, thought about what we think they might change and came up with a plan.
