Day of drama falls short of Hollywood ending for Plymouth

March 11, 2013

PLYMOUTH — A day of classic storylines fell short of a storybook ending for Plymouth as the Pilgrims fell to Andrean (22-3) by a 70-60 final in overtime in the Plymouth Regional championship game Saturday night.
The big story line was of the team that refused to go away with Plymouth trailing for much of the game and living to play overtime on an epic 3-point buzzer beater by Joe Knapp that capped an unlikely comeback.

Lancers’ run ends versus Bowman

March 11, 2013

NORTH JUDSON — A week after it ended a 27-year sectional championship drought, LaVille entered the Class 2A North Judson Regional with the hope of bringing home its first-ever regional championship trophy. The Lancers kept that hope alive for most of four quarters, but ultimately fell a play or two short.
Bowman Academy’s Justin King and Davon Dillard cooly converted a pair of one-and-ones in the game’s final stretch, and LaVille couldn’t find the big bucket it needed as the Eagles held off the Lancers, 65-58 in a nip-tuck Judson Regional semifinal Saturday morning.

It was the third straight Class 5A title for CMA, but the first time the school has won two state titles in the five class tournament.

Texting while driving illegal, tough to enforce

March 11, 2013

MARSHALL CO. — Texting while driving has been illegal in Indiana since 2011. But will police actually pull you over if they see you looking at your phone behind the wheel?
Plymouth Police Chief Dave Bacon said it’s possible — but the law is a tough one for his officers to enforce.
“The way the current law is written, it’s for text messaging and emailing (on a mobile device),” said Bacon. “Well, people could be looking at a map online. Will we stop them? Yes, we will stop them. But I don’t think the law is highly enforced the way it’s written now.”

Q: The first question is always about your family. Tell us about them.

A : My family is very important to me. I have three siblings — two little sisters and a little brother. My little brother played JV basketball this year so I’m excited to see what he’s going to do next year. And my sisters are going to be entering seventh grade next year so they’re going to be in big school so that’s interesting too.
