ARGOS â€” Itâ€™s funny how things work out.
Argosâ€™ girls soccer team was tied 1-1 with Boone Grove in the final minute of their sectional championship game Saturday afternoon in DeMotte. If Jami Patterson hadnâ€™t been able to put away the game-winner with 34 seconds on the clock, the Lady Dragons might not have gotten to Culver in time to catch the final minutes of the boysâ€™ sectional title rematch with Bremen later in the day. And if they hadnâ€™t been there, the Dragons, who were knotted in a 0-0 stalemate with the Lions, might not have gotten the boost they needed in the gameâ€™s homestretch.

CULVER â€” It isnâ€™t just skill and talent that wins championships; sometimes it takes a little luck too.

SOUTH BEND â€” While their teams closed at the South Bend Riley Sectional, a pair of area runners advanced individually out of Tuesdayâ€™s meet at Erskine Park.

â€śThere was no heat at the high school and room temperatures were around 55 degrees,â€ť said Triton Superintendent Donna Burroughs. â€śI donâ€™t think that would have made for a very good learning environment so we decided to cancel classes for the day.â€ť
