WALKERTON â€”Â John Glennâ€™s boys basketball squad flexed its muscle on both ends of the court Friday.
Defensively, the Falcons held LaVille to a 10-of-42 mark from the field â€”Â 2 of 18 from downtown â€”Â while on the other side of the timeline Glenn pounded the ball inside almost at will in a 55-32 Northern State Conference win at The Aerie.
â€śI think our strength took over tonight, and it should with our size and experience,â€ť Glenn head coach Travis Hannah said. â€śWe were able to take the ball to the hole.
BREMEN â€” The hosts managed a spilt in Friday nightâ€™s girls/boys doubleheader with Knox, as Bremenâ€™s girls blew out the visiting Redskins 65-47 and the boys fell 44-26.
In the girls contest, Bremenâ€™s Brittney Pittman had 26 points while going 8-of-11 from 3-point range. Lerin Studt (13 points) and Jenna Pfeiffer (11) also scored in double figures while Kailee Feldman finished with 9 points and a game-high 10 rebounds.
In the boys contest, Bremen had more fouls (16) than points (14) through three quarters and got no closer than 10 points after the first 5:29.
CULVER â€”Â If Jimtown is a brick wall, then Culverâ€™s Zoe Bauer was the bulldozer that broke through it.
The Cavaliers, led by Bauer, came from behind in the last minutes of the game to increase their Northern State Conference wins to two, with a W over the Jimmies, 41-33.
Jimtown came to Culver knowing they had to shut down the Cavsâ€™ four-year varsity player. And for the first three quarters, they did just that.
â€śI think we did a great job on Bauer,â€ť Jimtown head coach Randy DeShone said, â€śuntil the third quarter. Heâ€™s been around a while, and a kid like that is going to beat you.â€ť

PLYMOUTH â€” Slow but sure wins the race, but that doesnâ€™t make it any easier to wait.
â€śItâ€™s really kind of a strange thing this year but for whatever reason many of the campaigns are running late this year,â€ť said Jennifer Maddox, Executive Director of United Way of Marshall County. â€śIâ€™m optimistic that weâ€™re going to reach our goal but we wonâ€™t have final numbers for awhile yet because so many businesses havenâ€™t completed their drives.â€ť
One local company has been â€śin the clubhouseâ€ť on their drive for quite awhile. Not only was it a quick one, it was a big success.
