PLYMOUTH â€”Â Robert â€śBobâ€ť Newton, 85, co- founder of Hoosier Racing Tire, died Wednesday afternoon, after a year of dealing with the effects of a stroke.
While itâ€™s well known that Newton is the visionary behind the largest manufacturer of racing tires in the world, what most will remember about Newton is the heart he had for his local community.
â€śHe and (his wife) Joyce were, and are, phenomenal people,â€ť Hoosier Tire employee Irish Saunders said Thursday. â€śThey did so much for people behind the scenes and never wanted their name out in public.â€ť
Triton and LaVille are both young teams that have struggled this season, and this weekâ€™s match-up at LaVille is likely the best chance for both squads to break into the Northern State Conference win column.
Add to that a Sectional 35 rivalry and the fact that itâ€™s Senior Night at LaVille, and both the Lancers and the Trojans should be fired up tonight.
BREMEN â€” No big surprises here.
The host Lions shut out LaVille on all five courts, and 15-time defending sectional champion Plymouth earned another 5-0 victory over John Glenn to set up todayâ€™s championship rematch at the Bremen Boys Tennis Sectional at DeSantis Courts Thursday evening.
Fresh off a competitive 4-1 win over Triton in the tourney opener Wednesday, the Lions beat LaVille in straight 6-0 sets on all courts Thursday to advance to the championship for a fourth straight year opposite Plymouth.
CMA, NJâ€™s Simon advance
Culver Military Academy won on all courts but 1 singles, and the Eagles earned their ninth straight sectional title with a 4-1 win over North Judson at the CMA Sectional at the Gable Tennis Complex Thursday.
The Eagles look to three-peat at their home regional next Tuesday when they play the winner of tonightâ€™s Bremen-Plymouth championship match at the Bremen Sectional.
Judsonâ€™s Thomas Simon remains alive in state singles tournament play with his 7-5, 6-4 win over CMAâ€™s Quinlan Smith at 1 singles Thursday.
