Plymouth's No. 1 doubles team of Marissa German and Andria Shook earned a pair of reprisal wins over Goshen and Northridge last week to win the championship at the Northern Lakes Conference Tournament.
Culver Community's Matt Hurford finished second in both the 110 hurdles and the shot put, fifth in the 300 hurdles and first in the 1600 relay with teammates Bradley Beaver, Preston Hansel and Micah Budzinski to lead the Cavs at the NSC Track Meet last week.
BREMEN â€” With four championship matches left to wrap at the Northern State Conference Tournament, it looks like Bremenâ€™s girls tennis team has an outright NSC title in the bag.
The Lady Lions have yet to finish up on the three singles courts and at 2 doubles after earning championship berths on all courts over the weekend.
SOUTH BEND â€” Add a non-conference Saturday after a long week of baseball to the venue of Coveleski Stadium and opponent South Bend Clay (11-6) and you have a roller coaster ride of a morning that ended with Plymouth falling to Clay by a 12-6 final.
â€śWe didnâ€™t take any steps back today,â€ť said Plymouth coach Ryan Wolfe. â€śWeâ€™re right where we want to be and moving forward, and It was just one of those days where the wheels fell off. They fell off, and we couldnâ€™t get back on the wagon.â€ť
German and Shook win NLC doubles title
Plymouthâ€™s No. 1 doubles team of Marissa German and Andria Shook won the Northern Lakes Conference championship, and the Lady Pilgrims finished third behind meet and overall league champ Northridge and runner-up Goshen at the NLC Tournament at home Saturday morning.
German and Shook avenged a three-set loss to Northridgeâ€™s Courtney Clark and Olivia Erekson in round robin play back on May 2 with a very convincing 6-2, 6-1 win over their rivals Saturday to win the 1 doubles title on their home court in Centennial Park.
