CULVER â€” Coming off last weekâ€™s convincing defeat at the hands of Culver Military, Plymouth tennis coach Michael Delp knew the only chance for his team at Tuesdayâ€™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 wasnâ€™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.
LAKEVILLE â€” It wasnâ€™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.
â€śThey played tough against a good team,â€ť said LaVille girls soccer coach Steve Hodge. â€śWe just didnâ€™t have the soldiers to match up with them.â€ť
NEW CARLISLE â€” After beating New Prairie three times earlier this season, John Glennâ€™s boys believed this might be the year to end the Cougarsâ€™ 15-year stranglehold on the Northern State Conference cross country championship.
But sometimes, emotions get in the way of a good race plan.
â€śI think our boys were a little too pumped up and went out way too hard,â€ť said Glenn coach Rob Carrasco, whose team faded badly over the final mile of Tuesdayâ€™s league meet on New Prairieâ€™s famed 5,000-meter course.
Warsaw eliminates CGA
Warsaw scored four goals in the second half to break a 0-0 stalemate, and the host Lady Tigers eliminated Culver Girls Academy 4-0 at the Class 2A Warsaw Girls Soccer Sectional Tuesday.
Gabby Monroy and Elizabeth Van Wormer each finished with a goal and an assist to lead Warsaw.
Olivia Fox managed a valiant 11 saves in goal but it wasn't enough to make a difference as the Lady Eagles closed out their season.
The Tigers advance to play Wawasee Thursday following the early semifinal between fellow Northern Lakes Conference clubs NorthWood and Plymouth.
