PLYMOUTH â€” Morgan Uceny may have been the first Plymouth-area native to run in the Olympics, but if two young area hopefuls have it their way, she wonâ€™t be the last.
This past summer, Ucenyâ€™s run to the 2012 Olympic finals captivated the hearts and minds of people around the world and the town of Plymouth in particular. And while the community watched breathlessly as the 2003 Plymouth High School grad made history, two PHS track athletes, senior Meagan Fisher and junior Mason Reed, paid special attention. What they saw inspired them to rededicate themselves to their sport.
Bremenâ€™s Brooke Baker was recently selected for second team All-State honors in Class 2A volleyball play by the Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association.
Triton senior Jeff Ross was named both to the Indiana High School Tennis Coaches Associationâ€™s All-State honorable mention list in 1 doubles and the associationâ€™s Academic All-State honorable mention list.

CULVER â€” Culver Academies seniors Lauryn Robinson and Anthony McHugh are state finalists for the Wendyâ€™s High School Heisman Award, the school announced Thursday.
This is the second time Culver has had two finalists in the 19-year history of the program. Only 20 seniors are selected in Indiana, and The Academies is the only school in the state with two finalists.
Most Culver residents are aware that work resumed two weeks ago on Culver's downtown revitalization project. At the Oct. 23 meeting of Culver's town council, some insight was given as to how that action came about, following the ceasing of work from Oct. 9 to 16.
