Bremenâ€™s Jacob Box put up a game-high 20 points as the Lions ended their season with a 63-47 loss to the host Warriors at the Class 2A Westview Sectional championship Saturday. Box put up a combined 45 points in three games at the tourney for Bremen.
Plymouth grad Jessica Centa was named to the Michiana Intercollegiate Athletic Association All-Conference basketball team last week for Saint Maryâ€™s.
Centa led all players in the MIAA in her final season in offensive rebounds while finishing second in free throw percentage.
BOURBON â€” The mention of the inbound play that produced Clay Yeoâ€™s sectional final-winning shot brought a smile to the Triton boys basketball starâ€™s face.
â€śI was arguing with (head) coach (Jason) Groves about what play to run,â€ť Yeo, who fired in a game-high 30 points, said. â€śI guess he was right.â€ť
TOPEKA â€” Bremen came on strong at the end of the year, but not strong enough to hold off defending sectional champion Westview on its home floor.
After a 16-15 first quarter start, the Lions fell behind at the 5:32 mark of the second quarter and never recovered the lead as the host Warriors dispatched Bremen 63-47 for a repeat Sectional 35 crown Saturday.
Westview advances to the North Judson Regional next Saturday, when the Warriors play the winner of tonightâ€™s South Adams Sectional championship between Adams Central and Fort Wayne Luers.
PLYMOUTH â€” Sometimes your best just isnâ€™t enough.
That seemed to be the case for the John Glenn Falcons Saturday night as they lost a hard-fought battle with Mishawaka Marian, 61-56, the IHSAA Class 3A Sectional 19 Championship at Plymouth.
â€śWe executed every part of what we wanted to execute,â€ť said Glenn head coach Travis Hannah. â€śWe just fell a little short tonight, and sometimes that happens.â€ť
SYRACUSE â€”Â Itâ€™s been a long time coming for the Plymouth High School gymnastics team to place third or better at the sectional level and advance to the regional round of the IHSAA gymnastics state tournament.
So long in fact that two members of that 2006 team, Dani Ramos and Dani McPherron, are now assistant coaches for the Pilgrims. After Saturday, those two can look forward to now having been both a gymnast and a coach at the regional level.
