Yeo leads Triton to 6th straight

March 4, 2013

CULVER — Triton boys basketball all-time leading scorer Clay Yeo earns most of his accolades through his offensive exploits.
The long-limbed 6-foot-6 senior guard plays pretty respectable defense, too.
Yeo, who hit the tying and game-winning free throws with 25 seconds left in the Class A Sectional 51 title game Saturday, snapped up a pair of steals in the final 5 seconds to preserve No. 10 Triton’s 47-46 victory over eighth-ranked Michigan City Marquette at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.

LaVille ends drought at Westview

March 4, 2013

TOPEKA — Prior to last week, LaVille had won just two games in the multi-class state tournament. Saturday night’s sectional championship pushes that total up to five and counting.
LaVille put on yet another defensive clinic in the second half, and the Lancers rallied back from a 21-17 halftime deficit to hand the two-time defending champion Warriors a 44-36 Sectional 35 championship defeat on their home court at Westview.

PHS gymnasts take second at sectional

March 4, 2013

SYRACUSE — Lots of ice and a heavy tape job, along with junior Nicky Davis’ determination, were all that separated Plymouth’s gymnastics team from a return trip to regionals.
Having put up its best two meet scores of the year in the last week of the regular season, Plymouth was hoping its luck would continue at sectional Saturday. Then with less than five minutes to go in practice Friday, the Pilgrims were concerned that their luck may have rolled away when co-No. 1 gymnast Davis rolled her ankle on the last routine of their final practice.

Meagan Fisher and Kaydon Fosler each tallied a pair of wins to help lead Plymouth’s girls track team to a narrow 91-90 victory over New Prairie for the championship at the five-team Culver Girls Academy Indoor Invitational Friday.
Fisher won the 440 and ran the third leg of the Lady Pilgrims’ winning 4x880 relay with teammates Libbie read, Shelby Harrell and Abby Patrick. Fisher went on to finish second in the high jump behind Fosler’s winning 5’3”, and Fosler also won the long jump with a 14’9 1/4” clearance at the meet.

Pilgrims advance; Falcons fall

March 2, 2013

PLYMOUTH — One local team’s defensive struggles are sending them home for the offseason, another’s defensive prowess will give them a shot at a sectional title as Glenn fell to South Bend St. Joe by a 63-49 final and Plymouth won a classic with Marian 59-57 at the Plymouth Sectional on Friday.
Plymouth 59, Marian 57
It was a classic but not for the reason many thought it would be.

Trojans beat Culver, head to final

March 2, 2013

CULVER — And the award for best supporting cast goes to Triton’s boys basketball team.
With senior starters Clay Yeo and Seth Glingle saddled with third-quarter foul trouble, the Trojans actually extended their advantage and pulled away in the fourth frame for a 44-32 win over host Culver Community in Class A Sectional 51 semifinal action at John R. Nelson Gymnasium Friday.
No. 10 Triton shoots for its sixth straight sectional crown tonight at 6:30 p.m. against No. 8 Michigan City Marquette, an 81-46 victor over Westville in Friday’s nightcap.

March 2, 2013

TOPEKA — LaVille head coach Michael Edison wasn’t wholly satisfied with his players’ defensive effort in their sectional-opener Wednesday night, even after it resulted in a comfortable 58-42 win over Fremont.
The Lancers went back to the drawing board at practice Thursday, and Prairie Heights paid the price Friday.

No major ordinance change suggested for wind turbines

March 1, 2013

PLYMOUTH — After being tabled for a month, when presented with an array of additions and amendments to current ordinances, the Marshall County Plan Commission decided not to take any action that would essentially keep wind turbines and farms out of the county.

With attorney Steve Snyder, Syracuse, representing, a group of concerned citizens drafted a series of changes to current ordinances in the county regarding wind turbines.

They ranged from sound issues to setting longer distances from property lines, churches, schools and more.
