LAKEVILLE â€” Haley Collings had already had a couple nice outings leading into Saturday nightâ€™s girls championship game at the Bi-County Tournament.
The Oregon-Davis junior saved her best performance for last, though.
Collings put up a game-high 25 points on nearly perfect 11-for-12 shooting from the floor, and she notched another game-high 13 rebounds as the Class A No. 2 Lady Bobcats earned a repeat championship over Class A No. 10 Triton by a lopsided 80-36 margin at the 48th Annual Teachers Credit Union tilt at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
ELKHART â€” Brotherly love took on a whole new meaning at the Northern State Conference wrestling tournament.
Maybe â€śbrotherly influenceâ€ť would be a better term.
â€śMy brother lost (the championship match) at 120, and I was going to make sure the same thing didnâ€™t happen to me,â€ť said Glennâ€™s James Frey after winning the 132-pound weight class Saturday at Jimtown.
Moments before he walked onto the mat to face Jimtownâ€™s Cody Koebel for the title, Frey watched his brother, Andrew Frey, drop a 6-4 decision in the 120-pound finale.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth girlsâ€™ basketball team wanted to get out to a fast start against the visiting Wawasee Warriors Saturday night.
They didnâ€™t seem to have any trouble accomplishing that mission.
The Lady Pilgrims scored 23 points in the first quarter and used great team defense to gain a 15-point advantage at the quarter break. That lead would carry over for the rest of the game as they took the 62-45 Northern Lakes Conference win at home at The Rock.
Plymouthâ€™s seniors put the team on their backs in that first frame.
Plymouth placed seven wrestlers in championship matches, and three Rockies captured individual titles as Plymouth took second at the Northern Lakes Conference Wrestling Meet Saturday at Wawasee.
Elkhart Memorial captured the meet championship with 226 points, while Plymouth came up just a little short of winning the conference title outright with 222.5 points. NorthWood finished sixth with 107 points, meanwhile.
