Triton senior Clay Yeo put up a combined 52 points in two regional games, including 35 as the No. 10 Trojans claimed the Class A Regional 13 championship victory over No. 4 Pioneer at the Trojan Trench Saturday night.
Plymouth sophomore Cassi Quissell led the Pilgrims with a 35.15 score and 10th place individual finish in the all-around competition against a loaded field at the Valparaiso Gymnastics Regional Friday.
BOURBON â€” At some point during Clay Yeoâ€™s otherworldly third quarter, the Triton student section started chanting, â€śYou canâ€™t stop him.â€ť
True? Sure. A gross oversimplification of said truth? Absolutely. Then again, â€śYouâ€™re entirely helpless to in any way moderate the influence of this man among boys upon this regional championship game,â€ť while more specific, lacks the snappy cadence of, â€śYou canâ€™t stop him.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” 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.
NORTH JUDSON â€” 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 Academyâ€™s Justin King and Davon Dillard cooly converted a pair of one-and-ones in the gameâ€™s final stretch, and LaVille couldnâ€™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.
CMA wins two state titles
Culver Military Academy walked away from the state hockey tournament with championships in both the Class 5A and Class 3A divisions Saturday at the Compton Family Ice Arena at Notre Dame.
The CMA varsity A won the 5A title with a 5-2 victory over South Bend St. Joseph and the Eagles varsity B took the Class 3A crown with a 4-1 win over Fort Wayne Carroll.
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.
MARSHALL CO. â€” 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 itâ€™s possible â€” but the law is a tough one for his officers to enforce.
â€śThe way the current law is written, itâ€™s for text messaging and emailing (on a mobile device),â€ť said Bacon. â€śWell, people could be looking at a map online. Will we stop them? Yes, we will stop them. But I donâ€™t think the law is highly enforced the way itâ€™s written now.â€ť
