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.
SYRACUSE â Sometimes you expect something and the opposite happens. Plymouthâs Pilgrims took on a team noted for chaotic full-court play, and wound up playing a Wawasee team taking the air out of the ball.
Plymouth out-waited the Warriors by a 57-30 final in a Northern Lakes Conference boys basketball game Friday.
LAKEVILLE â With Triton trailing by two and time for one last shot, everyone in the gym knew who the ball was going to.
And given Clay Yeoâs track record of hitting game-winning shots, LaVille head coach Michael Edison decided to make a gamble â triple down on the senior Valpo recruit and make the Trojans win with someone else.
LAKEVILLE â Kyle Elliott knew Glenn was going to present his team with some match-up problems. The Culver Community coach also had an inkling of what to expect after what he described as his teamâs worst practice of the season Thursday.
Sure enough, the Cavs scuffled to a slow start as the Falcons staked themselves to a 15-5 lead at the first quarter break and never once trailed in a convincing 52-39 Bi-County semifinal win Friday night.
Longtime John Glenn boys basketball coach and current Triton assistant coach Gordon Mosson was honored in between Bi-County Tournament semifinal games Friday night at LaVille as the winningest coach in the tourneyâs 47-year history.
Mosson guided the Falcons to 10 titles and 15 championship game berths in his 25-year tenure as the head coach at Glenn, amassing an impressive 43-15 mark at the tournament.

MARSHALL CO. â The Centers for Disease Control reported Thursday that flu deaths in Indiana are now at epidemic levels.
The Indiana State Department of Health stated in a press release that 27 people have died of the flu this season. By comparison, in 2011-12 there were no flu deaths and just three deaths in the 2010-11 season.
âWe are experiencing a more severe season than in recent years, however itâs important to recognize that flu is unpredictable and we have been through this before,â said State Health Commissioner William VanNess II in a statement.
LAKEVILLE â Tritonâs girls relied on some accurate outside shooting to gap LaVille in the first half.
The shots stopped falling in the second half, but fortunately for the Lady Trojans, they were able to knock down enough free throws to ride out their halftime cushion in a 56-50 Bi-County semifinal win over the host Lady Lancers Thursday night.
