CULVER â€” According to a report in Thursdayâ€™s Lafayette Journal Courier, Culver Community and Knox are planning to leave the Northern State Conference to start a new athletic conference with North Judson and a trio of Midwest Conference schools.
The three MWC schools listed in the story are Caston, Pioneer and Winamac and their withdrawal would leave the conference with five schools. The NSC is currently made up of eight schools as well. The other schools in the league are Bremen, John Glenn, LaVille, Triton, New Prairie and Jimtown. North Judson is independent.
BREMEN â€” Bremen girls golf coach Don Harrison believes if his team plays like its capable, thereâ€™s no reason his girls canâ€™t break 200 every nine hole match this year. Take out one hole Thursday, and the Lady Lions were pretty much right on the money.
Bremen struggled with some high numbers on the third hole at Sprig Oâ€™Mint but still carded 200, easily beating out Knoxâ€™s 247 in the two teamsâ€™ Northern State Conference-opener Thursday night.
