A lawsuit where Plymouth was one of more than 50 other cities and town that was listed as a defendant was deemed frivolous and the plantiff has been ordered to pay the city for it.
On Feb. 27, Federal Judge Tanya Walton Pratt entered an order sanctioning Kevin D. Miller, the plaintiff in a lawsuit filed last year against the City of Plymouthâs K-9 Unit.
The Court ordered Miller to pay the City $810.43 in attorneyâs fees and expenses and prohibited him from making any further filings against the City.
Pilgrims guard David Lee notched 11 points with seven rebounds, six assists and two steals as Plymouth earned the Sectional 19 championship with a 74-45 win over South Bend St. Joe Saturday.
Plymouthâs Nicky Davis gutted out an ankle injury to finish fourth in the all-around and lead the Pilgrims gymnastics team to a repeat regional berth and runner-up finish at the Wawasee Sectional Saturday.
PLYMOUTH â For the first time since 2010, Plymouthâs Pilgrims are sectional champions.
The No. 6 Pilgrims used a strong fourth quarter to turn a competitive final into a runaway Saturday, defeating South Bend St. Joe by a 74-45 final to claim the Sectional 19 title on their home court at The Rock.
CULVER â 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 Tritonâs 47-46 victory over eighth-ranked Michigan City Marquette at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.
TOPEKA â Prior to last week, LaVille had won just two games in the multi-class state tournament. Saturday nightâs 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.
SYRACUSE â Lots of ice and a heavy tape job, along with junior Nicky Davisâ determination, were all that separated Plymouthâs 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.
Lady Pilgrims win CGA Indoor Invitational
Meagan Fisher and Kaydon Fosler each tallied a pair of wins to help lead Plymouthâs 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 Pilgrimsâ winning 4x880 relay with teammates Libbie read, Shelby Harrell and Abby Patrick. Fisher went on to finish second in the high jump behind Foslerâs winning 5â3â, and Fosler also won the long jump with a 14â9 1/4â clearance at the meet.

PLYMOUTH â One local teamâs defensive struggles are sending them home for the offseason, anotherâs 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.
