Of course it's a matter of enormous significance each time Culver Academies' Black Horse Troop and Equestriennes prepare to march in the U.S. Presidential inaugural -- but this coming inaugural parade is especially meaningful, as it marks 100 years of Culver's participation in the event. And preparations are already underway.
ROCHESTER â€” It was the same stuff on a different day for the Plymouth Pilgrim basketball team Friday night at Rochester.Â A smothering defense and a heavy dose of Mack Mercer and Joe Knapp led the Pilgrims to a 71-51 victory over the Zebras.
Plymouth opened the game with a hot shooting hand.Â
The Pilgrims converted on four of their first five possessions â€” the first coming off a long tip by Mercer to Knapp on the tip-off â€” to break out on an 8-0 run.
CULVER â€” The second quarter has been a real Achilles heel for Culver Academy so far this season.
The Eagles lost their opener after falling behind in the second quarter against Indianapolis Homeschool last week. And on Friday night, visiting LaVille held them to two points on 1-of-9 shooting in the second frame to grab a 20-point halftime cushion.
CMA played dead even with the Lancers in the second half, but it was already moot as LaVille handed the Eagles a 48-27 loss at Fleet Gymnasium.
CULVER â€” Culver Communityâ€™s boys basketball team showed its sharing side Friday.
Displaying unselfishness and patience on the offensive end, the Cavs recorded assists on 22 of their 26 field goals, shot a blistering 63 percent from the field, stepped up to the foul line 37 times, and deposited four players in double figures in an 81-61 victory over LaCrosse at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.
ARGOS â€” The Argos Dragons beat a tough Winamac team behind a breakout performance from 6â€™6â€ť junior Ben Carter.
Carter had an all around game with 21 points, nine rebounds and three blocks, all while shooting 7-of-8 from both the field and the line. When the Warriors tried to make a push late, Carter came up big, making a couple of huge rebounds in the last minute of the game while hitting 3 of 4 from the line to help seal the win, 62-54 at home at Phil Weybright Gymnasium Friday.
Triton drops 2nd straight
Clay Yeo and Tanner Shepherd gave Triton a one-two punch, but the Trojans lost their second straight on the road at NorthWood Friday, 66-62.
Clay Yeo scored 31 points, and Tanner Shepherd chipped in 21 for Triton, which slipped to 1-2.
Jonathon Wilinson and Zach Zurcher collected 24 and 18 points, respectively for NorthWood, which saw six players score and opened at 1-0.
