BOURBON â€” A year ago in the spring of 2011, then-Triton sophomore Quentyn Carpenter had a decision to make: Continue playing with the Trojansâ€™ successful basketball team or get serious about his first love and quit the team to pursue golf full-time.
It wasnâ€™t an easy choice but Carpenter stood firm, and he was given a measure of vindication when he signed on with the Ball Stateâ€™s menâ€™s golf team last week.
CMA drops opener
An 18-7 second quarter run by visiting Indianapolis Homeschool left Culver Military trailing by 10 at the half, and the Eagles never quite recovered in a 45-39 season-opening loss at home at Fleet Gymnasium Monday night.
Homeschool â€” which already had six games under its belt heading into Culver Military â€” knocked down six triples in the win, while CMA scuffled to a 4-for-10 finish from the foul line in the six-point loss.

Plymouth sophomore Hunter Stevens led the Lady Pilgrims in scoring with 24 points in two games as the team beat Triton and Valparaiso last week for a 3-0 start.
Argos sophomore Damon Binkley was voted the All-Northern Indiana Soccer Conference Player of the Year last week after leading the Dragons to their first NISC championship since 1998.
PLYMOUTH â€” Kill the head, and the body will die. Cut off the point, and running an offense becomes pretty difficult.
Such was Plymouthâ€™s plan coming into Saturdayâ€™s home opener versus Valparaiso, and the Lady Pilgrims executed to a T.
Sophomore Allie Wright relentlessly shadowed Valpo point guard Grace Withrow, effectively marooning her from the rest of the Vikingsâ€™ offense, the Pilgrims created havoc in the passing lanes, and Plymouth rode a strong defensive effort to a 50-32 win at The Rock.
