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.

ROCHESTER â€”Â Gerald Briney, 83, of Rochester died Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012 at 3:10 p.m.
He is survived by several nieces and nephews.
Visitation will be at 1 p.m. Monday, Dec. 3, 2012 in the Good Family Funeral Home, 1200 W. 18th St., Rochester. Visitation is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday in the funeral home. Military graveside rites will be conducted by the Fulton County Honor Guard and the U.S. Army Honor Guard. Burial will be in the Richland Center IOOF Cemetery.
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.
