MARSHALL CO. â€”Â Since signing a resolution to do so in 2011, members of county government have been making sure county buildings are handicap-accessible.
â€śIn the last year or so, we have installed automatic doors at the Marshall County Building, and they will soon be installed at the museum and the courthouse, too,â€ť said County Auditor Penny Lukenbill Thursday.
Tritonâ€™s Tanner Shepherd scored a combined 34 points in two games as the Trojans beat Elkhart Christian and John Glenn last week.
Oregon-Davisâ€™ Ashley Campbell poured in a game-high 25 points to lead the Class A No. 2 Lady Cats to a 65-55 win on the road Class A No. 9 Triton last Wednesday.
PLYMOUTH â€” Friday night may have been the tune up, Saturday night was showtime as two of the areaâ€™s top squads squared off at The Rock with Plymouth (9-1) beating Tippy Valley (now 9-2) by a 63-46 final.
The Pilgrims looked sluggish in an NLC win on Friday night over Elkhart Memorial but were anything but taking on the Vikings for area regular season bragging rights.
Valley came in with a number of impressive wins, but with Plymouthâ€™s Mack Mercer on the bench with foul trouble for much of the second half, the Pilgrims were able to post an impressive win of their own.
