PLYMOUTH â€” From a Plymouth girl and onetime Blueberry Festival-goer to 2012 U.S. 1500-meter champion and Olympian, Morgan Uceny came full circle over the weekend.
The 2003 Plymouth High School grad returned home Saturday, this time as the conquering hero to a host of adoring fans at the Plymouth Amphitheater.
She recounted her Olympic journey during an open air interview with WNDU 16â€™s Angelo Di Carlo and signed autographs for fans who braved the rain to come out and see their hometown hero.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth entered Labor Day weekend on a four-game scoring drought.
The Rockies brought a decisive end to that dry spell but a trio of late goals left the home team at 1-1-1 for the Blueberry Festival Tournament at Kindt Soccerplex.
Plymouth opened the tournament with a heartbreaking 2-1 loss Saturday to Marquette, which went on to win the A Flight.
The Blazers scored on a pair of penalty kicks to rally past Plymouth, including a pk on a handball in the box in the 79th minute to claim the narrow win.

Ricardo Reynoso scored a pair of goals at the tournament, while Don Browning had a goal and an assist. Jarred Fitch, Danny Reynoso, Jacob Box and Clayton Phillips also scored goals for Bremen, which moved to 7-0-1 with its sixth and seventh straight wins.
Hollywood film director and producer J.B. Rogers shared a recurring piece of advice for aspiring filmÂmakers Aug. 26: film school? Maybe, but the real ticket "in" is getting coffee for the important folks.
Rogers, an Indianapolis native and Park Tudor grad who spent childhood sumÂmers on Lake MaxinkuckÂee, had that to say and much more, to members of the Culver Club of Culver SatÂurday evening at the Dave and Ginny Gibson cottage on East Shore Drive.
When a vehicle with the words "Bomb Squad" affixed visibly rolls into Culver, it gets everyone talking.
PLYMOUTH â€” While there may be light at the end of the tunnel, it was still far from Blueberry Festive at Plymouth on Friday night as the Rockies (1-2) dropped their second straight game at home and their first Northern Lakes Conference game of the season to rival Warsaw, 26-7.
Plymouth dug a hole in the gameâ€™s first half and could never quite recover in spite of the return of several starters to the lineup in the second half and the emergence of some new players that could be key as the season progresses.
BOURBON â€”Â After a pair of season-opening losses, Culver Communityâ€™s football team needed to make something good happen Friday at Triton.
Between Bradley Beaver, Tucker Schultz, Preston Hansel, Collin Stevens, and a strong supporting cast, the Cavs broke out the good stuff.
Culver put points on the board in each of its first five possessions of the game and withstood a second-half Triton charge en route to a 37-19 Northern State Conference victory.
LAKEVILLE â€” For two quarters, little LaVille gave Class 3A No. 2 powerhouse Jimtown a run for its money.
But the Jimmies found another gear as the numbers game gradually began to wear the undersized Lancers squad down in the second half, and LaVille fell 34-0 to visiting Jimtown in the home teamâ€™s Northern State Conference opener at Lancer Field Friday.
KNOX â€” A sleeping giant woke up Friday night.
After two straight games where its offense sputtered and stalled, John Glennâ€™s running game finally showed up in a 32-18 romp over Knox.
Derek Hiler rushed for 133 yards and a touchdown, Adam Dodson had 56 yards and two touchdowns, and Zach Combes scored a touchdown while gaining 96 yards of his own to lift the Falcons to their first victory of the high school football season.

The Cougars chewed up 318 rushing yards to 122 by Bremen, which gained most of its yards in the air as the Lions registered a 14-31-1 passing clip for 215 yards at the game, including touchdown passes of 12 and 34 yards from Kai Slough to Ethan Pike and Eric Knepper, respectively.
