Culver tops LaVille
Culver Communityâ€™s boys track team opened its season Wednesday with a 72-52 win over visiting LaVille.
The Cavaliers went one-two in both hurdles events and won all three relays en route to the team win.
Matt Hurford claimed top finishes in both hurdles races and in the shot put for Culver.
LaVilleâ€™s best finishes were in distance events and short dashes â€” where the Lancers went one-two in the 1600 and won the 100 and 200 as well as the 800 â€” and in the discus, where the visitors swept the top three spots.

Dollie Mae Martindale
July 26, 1937-April 2, 2013
CULVER â€” Dollie Mae Martindale, 75, of Culver, passed away at 1:40 p.m. April 2, 2013 at Miller's Merry Manor in Culver.
She was born July 26, 1937 in Monterey to Carl Keller and Mildred (Stevens) Keller. She resided in Monterey until moving to Culver in 1979. On Oct. 19, 1979, Dollie married Roderick Martindale who proceeded her in death Oct. 23, 2011.
PLYMOUTH â€” What a difference a day makes. Especially when it comes to hitting.
Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims struggled to put together big hits on Wednesday night in a loss to South Bend St. Joe. Less than 24 hours later they had hits in abundance on the way to a win over previously undefeated South Central 10-6.
The Pilgrims could manage just two hits on Wednesday but exploded for 11 on Thursday with leadoff man and shortstop Justin Drudge leading the way with a double, triple and an RBI as part of a three-hit night and scoring two runs himself. Riley Cartwright added a two-hit, two-RBI night.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s girls track team may not have earned the sweep in their opener Thursday, but all in all, it was a pretty good showing.
The Lady Pilgrims wound up with the split on their home track, beating LaPorte 76-52 and falling to Mishawaka 72.33-55.66. But it was the closest margin head coach Paul Patrick has seen in recent years, and it was good start for an overwhelmingly young team that has been seriously limited in meaningful practice time due to a particularly cold early spring season.
LaPORTE â€” If weight events were all that mattered, Dan Samuelson and Adam Lacefield would have lifted the Plymouth boys track team to victory by themselves Thursday night.
Problem is, thereâ€™s a lot of running and jumping involved in your average high school meet. And the Pilgrims needed help in those areas.
Samuelson and Lacefield split 1-2 finishes in the shot put and discus, but Plymouth fell to LaPorte, 80-51, in a triangular meet at Kiwanis Field.
The Pilgrims also dropped a 90.5-40.5 decision to Mishawaka.
Lady Pilgrims fall
The Plymouth Lady Pilgrims kicked off their softball season with a tough 18-0 loss in five innings at Mishawaka High School.
Seniors Morgan Oâ€™ Neal and April Hampton had only lone base hits for the Pilgrims, who had several baserunners but struggled to get across home plate.
The JV Lady pilgrims had a bright start, opening with two runs, but later finished the night on the wrong side of a 13-3 effort.
Plymouth will be back in action on Saturday at Laporte at 11 a.m.

MARSHALL CO. â€” Marshall County commissioners may have put the kibosh on a commercial wind farm in the area.
Monday, commissioners decided they will have County Attorney Jim Clevenger draft a resolution to ban commercial wind farms in the county. Once the resolution is prepared, it will go to the Plan Commission for a vote, then several public hearings will be held before the ban can be made official.
"We haven't had one person give us positive feedback (on the wind farm proposal)," noted Commissioner Jack Roose in Monday's commissioner meeting.
