MARSHALL CO. â€” Marshall County Economic Development Corporationâ€™s Executive Director, Jennifer Laurent, announced her resignation Monday. Laurent joined the staff of MCEDC in February 2010 and was appointed as Executive Director in October 2010 after serving as Interim Director for five months.
She leaves the organization with a successful track record of major business expansion projects, the creation of a professional Business Retention visitation program, and new initiatives aimed to increase Marshall Countyâ€™s development preparedness and attraction marketing position.
LaVilleâ€™s Andrew Hostetler finished with 17 points to lead the Lancers as they broke a 19-game series losing streak to John Glenn on Saturday.
Bremenâ€™s Sara Slabaugh scored a game-high 26 points as the Lady Lions earned their first win against Knox Friday night.
NAPPANEE â€” Snapping a losing streak always feels pretty good. Doing it on the road at No. 7 Northern Lakes Conference rival NorthWood makes it even sweeter.
The Lady Pilgrims used an 8-0 second quarter-opening run to jump out to a 17-9 lead on the host Lady Panthers after a nip-tuck first period, and the visitors never surrendered the lead again in an eventual 42-34 NLC win that snapped a three-game skid in Nappanee Saturday night.
WALKERTON â€” LaVilleâ€™s boys basketball team put together quite a first-quarter stretch Saturday at John Glenn.
It paled in comparison to the streak the Lancers terminated.
Propelled by sophomore guard Blake Berger and a 17-1 rampage to open the battle, LaVille ended a 19-game winless streak covering nearly 16 years against the Falcons with a 52-36 Northern State Conference victory at The Aerie.
WALKERTON â€” Just consider the John Glenn Lady Falcons a rapid response team.
The Falcons, led by two triples apiece from Kyler Columbia, Carah Ochs and Natalie Shetler in the final 10 minutes of the game, quickly answered every LaVille second-half threat en route to a 65-46 Northern State Conference girls basketball victory at The Aerie Saturday.
With the victory â€” Glennâ€™s eighth straight â€” the Falcons doubled last seasonâ€™s win total.
Panthers shoot past Argos
The Panthers poured in 13 3-pointers, and Argos lost a 73-23 rout at Pioneer Saturday.
Pioneer grabbed a comfortable 39-13 lead at halftime and coasted to the win over the Dragons, who havenâ€™t won on the road since 2009.
Dominic Cataldo and Taylor Ogle scored five points each to lead Argos. Cataldo also finished with five rebounds, and Ogle notched a pair of steals in the loss, which dropped the Dragons to 1-5.
