October 3, 2012

PLYMOUTH - It was a celebration of literacy at Plymouth’s Lincoln Junior High on Tuesday night.
Special speakers and activities arranged by the Lincoln Language Arts staff - Paula Neidlinger, Sarah McKenzie, Chelsea Barmfeld, Katie Kappler and T.J. McNally - gave the assembled parents and students of Lincoln a look at the importance of the skills of communication in the modern world.

Rockies head to Goshen for key NLC contest

October 3, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Friday was fun, but it was only fun on Friday.
Plymouth’s Rockies returned to work after a big Northern Lakes Conference win on the road at Concord, probably as soon as the school song was over Friday night.
“The biggest thing you worry about after a big win is a letdown,” said Plymouth head coach John Barron. “We can’t be complacent. I guarantee we aren’t allowing it in practice.”
The biggest celebration for the Rockies was likely watching game film, and that even had a sense of purpose with it.

CMA knocks out Plymouth, reaches regional tennis final

October 3, 2012

CULVER — Coming off last week’s convincing defeat at the hands of Culver Military, Plymouth tennis coach Michael Delp knew the only chance for his team at Tuesday’s regional was to put pressure on the Eagles early.
Gabe Vervynckt earned the win at 1 singles, and Jack Holloway and Kendall Fosler went blow for blow in the first set of 1 doubles play with CMA twins Alec and Austin Proeh, but it wasn’t enough to rattle the hosts, and the 14th-ranked Eagles knocked out the Pilgrims 4-1 in a rain-delayed CMA Regional semifinal at the Gable Tennis Complex.

October 3, 2012

LAKEVILLE — It wasn’t for lack of a LaVille effort. In the end, Mishawaka Marian was simply as good as advertised.
A disciplined Lady Knights side controlled possession pretty much wire to wire, and third-ranked defending semistate champion Marian trumped the 20th-ranked Lancers 6-0 at the LaVille Girls Soccer Sectional at Newton Park Tuesday.
“They played tough against a good team,” said LaVille girls soccer coach Steve Hodge. “We just didn’t have the soldiers to match up with them.”

Falcons can’t unseat Cougars at NSC meet

October 3, 2012

NEW CARLISLE — After beating New Prairie three times earlier this season, John Glenn’s boys believed this might be the year to end the Cougars’ 15-year stranglehold on the Northern State Conference cross country championship.
But sometimes, emotions get in the way of a good race plan.
“I think our boys were a little too pumped up and went out way too hard,” said Glenn coach Rob Carrasco, whose team faded badly over the final mile of Tuesday’s league meet on New Prairie’s famed 5,000-meter course.
