PLYMOUTH â€”Â Now that many Marshall County students have school-issued laptop computers, school officials are looking seriously into how to deal with bullying that occurs online.

Tyree said that Plymouth principals are becoming more aware of the need to regularly check studentâ€™s computers to ensure threats are not being made.

ROYAL CENTER â€” The Plymouth softball team experienced both the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat during a road trip to Royal Center on Saturday in games against Pioneer and Whiting.
The agony of defeat would come first for Plymouth in dropping a 2-1, eight-inning heartbreaker to Pioneer in the opening game of the day. The Lady Pilgrims would bounce back with a last at-bat victory of their own, though, downing Whiting 4-3 on a bases-loaded single in the bottom of the seventh by April Hampton.
