PLYMOUTH â€” This year, Plymouth Community School Corporation has expanded its project-based learning (PBL) opportunities to include students in grades K-10.
K-8 PBL director Amy Gerard said that parents can fill out an early application for their student beginning Dec. 10.
"This is a brand new thing for us," said Gerard. "This year we are going to be accepting applications for grades K-10. This is the first year that we've asked people to apply at Lincoln Junior High and Riverside Intermediate School. The applications will be posted on each school's website."
Plymouthâ€™s DeAndre Pickford went 5-0 alternating between 220 and heavyweight at the Plymouth Classic Super Eight Wrestling Tournament Saturday, following a winning performance in the Rockiesâ€™ conference opener with Goshen Thursday.
Tritonâ€™s Taylor Hatfield finished with a game-high 24 points to lead the Lady Trojans to a Northern State Conference schedule-opening win over visiting Knox at The Trojan Trench Saturday.
PLYMOUTH â€” Theyâ€™ve had decent turnouts before, Plymouthâ€™s wrestling team has. But this season, thereâ€™s a new twist.
â€śOur young kids are really coming through for us,â€ť says Plymouth coach Bob Read. â€śWe had a real good incoming freshman class and we had some kids who committed to the off-season, so it has made a difference.â€ť
More than just a difference. If early results are any indication â€” like a second-place finish at Saturdayâ€™s Plymouth Classic Super Dual â€” the Rockies could be one of the better teams in northern Indiana.
CULVER â€” Gina Hierlmeierâ€™s 100th win provided a nice cherry on top, but that wasnâ€™t what the first-year Culver Community coach was thinking about heading into Saturdayâ€™s game with Bremen.
Hierlmeier was more concerned that the Lady Cavs open up their Northern State Conference schedule on the right foot.
It wasnâ€™t always pretty, but Culver got the W by a convincing 52-38 margin at home at John R. Nelson Gymnasium, and the West Central transfer earned her 100th win in the process.
BOURBON â€” Triton girls basketball head coach Adam Heckaman needed all of 30 seconds to set his team straight Saturday.
Class A No. 9 Triton fired off 12 unanswered points â€” seven off Knox turnovers â€” out of a 30-second timeout with 4:44 left in the first frame and ran away with a 69-38 Northern State Conference win at The Trojan Trench.
After trailing 7-6 at the stoppage, the Trojansâ€™ 1-3-1 zone trap inflicted a turnover epidemic, forcing 17 for the first half, while the offense converted 16-of-24 chances from the field before halftime.
Morgan Township hands Culver 1st loss
Morgan Township knocked down 14 free throws on 19 second-half attempts, and the home team rallied back from a 23-19 halftime deficit to hand Culver Community its first loss of the season, 49-43 Saturday.
Trent Elliott was held to 12 points to lead Culver, while Jordan Sanders finished with nine before fouling out in the defeat, which drops the team to 3-1.
Morgan was paced by Chase Bradenâ€™s game-high 22 points as the Cherokees earned their first win under head coach Eric Braden.
