PLYMOUTH â€”Â Plymouth offensive lineman Dan Samuelson has committed to play football at the University of Pittsburgh next fall.
Samuelson, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound guard, is the fourth player to verbally commit to Pitt's 2013 recruiting class.
Pitt is a Division I program making a move from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference following the ACC's formal acceptance of both Pitt and Syracuse in September. The Panthers finished with a record of 6-7 last season ending with a 28-6 loss to Southern Methodist in the BBVA Compass Bowl Jan. 7.
PLYMOUTH â€” Marissa Sullivan returned to the Plymouth line-up Wednesday night and made her presence felt in all aspects of the game.
Unfortunately, it wasnâ€™t enough to get the win.
The Lady Pilgrim senior had missed the teamâ€™s last three games due to an ankle injury and made up for her time away by going 2-for-3 at the plate with a double and a triple and pitching her way to 10 strikeouts in a 4-2 loss to the visiting Wawasee Warriors at home.

PLYMOUTH â€”Â Walmart in Plymouth was recently voted "Store of the Year" by the corporation's Illinois-based distribution center truck drivers. Three of the drivers visited the store Wednesday to hold a cookout for store employees as a gesture of gratitude for their hard work.
"(The award) is because of their consistent attention to detail," said one of the drivers, Steve Schlumpf. "Employees have the trailers unloaded in a timely fashion, they follow up by sweeping the trailers, and the inside of the store is always clean."
PLYMOUTH â€” Sometimes there is nothing like a visual example to help learning. The Plymouth High School Leaders Eliminating Alcohol and Drugs (LEAD) club hopes that will be the case Thursday.
The club will be holding a mock crash at 10 a.m. in front of the High School to be witnessed by the student body. Students, teachers, sheriffâ€™s deputies, firefighters and emergency medical technicians will be participating in the event, which will include real wrecked automobiles, an ambulance, deputy cruisers, fire trucks and a helicopter.
PLYMOUTH â€” It may not have been the Panthersâ€™ best round, but it was good enough.
NorthWoodâ€™s top four all finished within five strokes of one another to top the field with a 171, Bremen turned in a team score of 201 to split, and John Glenn â€” while led by sophomore Tyler Prentkowskiâ€™s low medalist 2-over-par 38 â€” finished at the bottom of the heap with a score of 212 at a three-way boys golf meet on the Black Course at Indiana National Tuesday.
Plymouth splits NLC 3-way
Plymouth beat Wawasee 94-38 but lost to Elkhart Memorial 72-60 in a three-way Northern Lakes Conference meet at Wawasee Tuesday.
Allie Wright was a fourpeat winner for the Lady Pilgrims, claiming top prize in the 200, 400 â€” where she and Allson Hoeffler went one-two â€” and as the anchor on Plymouthâ€™s winning 3200 and 1600 relay teams.
Shelby Harrel won the individual 3200, and Meagan Fisher tied with teammate Kaydon Fosler for tops in the high jump, as well as competing on the Pilgrimsâ€™ winning relays.
