PLYMOUTH â€” From a Plymouth girl and onetime Blueberry Festival-goer to 2012 U.S. 1500-meter champion and Olympian, Morgan Uceny came full circle over the weekend.
The 2003 Plymouth High School grad returned home Saturday, this time as the conquering hero to a host of adoring fans at the Plymouth Amphitheater.
She recounted her Olympic journey during an open air interview with WNDU 16â€™s Angelo Di Carlo and signed autographs for fans who braved the rain to come out and see their hometown hero.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth entered Labor Day weekend on a four-game scoring drought.
The Rockies brought a decisive end to that dry spell but a trio of late goals left the home team at 1-1-1 for the Blueberry Festival Tournament at Kindt Soccerplex.
Plymouth opened the tournament with a heartbreaking 2-1 loss Saturday to Marquette, which went on to win the A Flight.
The Blazers scored on a pair of penalty kicks to rally past Plymouth, including a pk on a handball in the box in the 79th minute to claim the narrow win.
