MISHAWAKA â€“ The 2011-2012 version of the Oregon-Davis girls basketball team is loaded with good, young talent, but light on varsity experience.
By starting the season off with a doubleheader Saturday, the Lady Bobcats gained some valuable experience, splitting two games against Class 4A schools in the Mishawaka Classic.
After easily dispatching Elkhart Central in the morning contest, 64-32, the Lady Bobcats narrowly lost to the hosts, 49-42, in the championship game. Although it was not the outcome O-D wanted, the fourth-ranked team in Class A made an impression.

VALPARAISO â€” Ethan Pike may never have played high school football before this year, but the junior wide receiver played like a seasoned vet Friday night.
Pike finished with two touchdown receptions totaling 28 yards in Bremenâ€™s regional battle of unbeatens versus Wheeler, his first a 10-yarder that put the Lions on the board at the 3:31 mark of the first quarter and his second a heady 18-yarder off a tip from Bearcats defensive back Derek Hartwig with just 3.4 seconds remaining in the first half to give Bremen its final lead of the night.
Culver Academies' Huffington Concert Series continues Monday evening with the Midtown Men, four members of the original cast of Broadwayâ€™s "Jersey Boys," live onstage at Eppley Auditorium, starting at 7:30 p.m.
While "The Jersey Boys" was centered on its stars' portrayals of the 1960s Motown group the Four Seasons, Midtown Men will offer a broader, but similar sampling of 1960s fare to the audience, ranging from Motown hits to the Beatles, the Beach Boys to the Mamas and the Papas, "a journey through all the iconic groups of the '60s," member Daniel Reichard told one media source.
As it continues its year-long celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Culver Girls Academy (formerly Culver Academy for Girls), the Culver Academies Museum & Gift Shop, located at 102 S. Main Street in downtown Culver, will host the authors of the upcoming, "Voices of CGA: A History of Culver Girls Academy," the very first book to chronicle the history of the school.
