PLYMOUTH â The Plymouth baseball team has already seen its share of one- and two-run games this season. Add Saturdayâs contest with South Bend Clay to that list.
Pinch hitter Justin Drudge came through with a big hit, and Hayden Skirvin drove him home with the game-winner as the Pilgrims came from behind to down the Colonials 5-4 in eight innings at home at Bill Nixon Field.
ARGOS â Offense was in abundance on Saturday when the Plymouth softball team traveled to Argos for an in-county non-conference matchup.
Both teams brought their bats in a matchup that saw 86 hitters come to the plate, 23 runs scored on 27 hits, and runs in every inning by either one or both teams. In the end, it was Plymouth prevailing by a 16-7 score over the Lady Dragons in a contest more competitive than the final score might indicate.
Bremen ties for NSC championship
Morgan Smith and Kristyn Buck earned individual championships at 1 and 3 singles, respectively, and Bremen tied with Jimtown for the Northern State Conference championship. Knox finished third ahead of John Glenn in fourth, Triton was sixth, and LaVille placed seventh in the final NSC standings.
Chelsea Anglin and Jenessa Morris were at large All-NSC picks for Bremen, and Hannah Arch was voted all-conference honorable mention.
PLYMOUTH â The Plymouth bats finally came back to life Friday night against the visiting Wawasee Warriors. And boy was it needed.
The Pilgrims punched out 15 hits in the contest, including eight doubles, and defeated the Northern Lakes Conference foe Warriors 10-9.
Wawasee was able to get on the board first with three first inning runs.Â
Lions beat LaVille
Nate Leeper struck out eight while allowing four hits with four walks for no earned runs in six innings of work, and Bremen handed LaVille a 9-1 Northern State Conference loss at home Friday.
Sean Knepper went 2-for-3 with a double, three runs and three RBI for the Lions in the win.
Ryan Bettcher tripled and Quentin Herbster doubled for LaVille in the road loss.

PLYMOUTH â If you drove by St. Michael Catholic School Thursday, you might have noticed groups of children doing laps around the building in tie-dyed shirts. All 171 of the students enrolled participated in this yearâs âRace for Educationâ where students sent letters to their friends and family requesting sponsors for the one-day event.
âThe whole school is involved,â said principal Trudy Nawara Thursday. âAnd itâs a beautiful day for it. Sometimes when itâs too hot (the students) canât last very long.â
PLYMOUTH â Plymouth Schools teacher, Suzie Clevenger, has been chosen one of three âEducators of the Yearâ by WNDU-TV in South Bend.
