LaVilleâ€™s Andrew Hostetler put up 21 points with five 3s as LaVille won its opener at the Peru Tournament Thursday against North Miami.
Argosâ€™ Kayla Prochno put up a combined 30 points in two games as the Lady Dragons finished runner-up at the four-team Winter Classic last week.
Itâ€™s official. Plymouth native Morgan Uceny is the No. 1 womenâ€™s 1500-meter runner in the world.
So says Track & Field News magazine, which released itâ€™s annual year-end rankings late Saturday, just before the New Yearâ€™s ball dropped in New York.
Track & Field News, known as the â€śBible of the Sport,â€ť has been compiling World and National rankings each year since 1947. A world-wide panel of experts votes on each event and the results are considered the â€śofficialâ€ť rankings of the running community.

HARROGATE, Tenn. â€”Â Argos graduate Amberly Oâ€™Dell recently rewrote the Lincoln Memorial University womenâ€™s basketball record book as she became the programâ€™s all-time leader in 3-pointers.
Oâ€™Dell, a 1997 graduate of Argos High School and senior at LMU, hit four triples in the Railsplittersâ€™ 79-75 loss at Catawba on Dec. 3 to surpass her schoolâ€™s previous career record with a total of 203.
â€śIâ€™m very blessed to have broken this record with such a great team and under the Coach (Roger) Hodge era,â€ť said Oâ€™Dell. â€śIâ€™m so thankful for all the support my family and Coach Hodge have given me.â€ť
LAKEVILLE â€”Â The Union-North School Corporation made it official Wednesday night that Mitchell Mawhorter will begin his duties as the superintendent Jan. 2. Mawhorter comes from his current job as principal at Jimtown Junior High School.
Board President Mark Dickson had made the announcement Dec. 22 that Mawhorter had been chosen by the board to fill the top spot. The position has been filled by interim Julie Lauck since October of this year after being hired in September.
PLYMOUTH â€” Construction on the Community Resource Center in Plymouth is coming along nicely, according to board membersâ€™ reaction during a walk-through tour Tuesday.
â€śIâ€™m just ecstatic, I couldnâ€™t say anything negative at all,â€ť said board of directors vice president Ralph Winters after the tour.
PERU â€” The Lancers have had to endure a tough two-game stretch in which the second half has not been their friend.
Their weakness became their strength Thursday as LaVille outscored North Miami 23-9 in the third quarter and 47-23 in the second half on its way to a 79-54 Peru Tournament-opening win over the Warriors.
The Lancers move on to face Whitko in the tourney championship tonight at 8 p.m. after the Wildcats beat host Peru in the nightcap Thursday.
