PLYMOUTH â€” Mayor Mark Senter has issued a proclamation officially designating Monday, March 12, 2012 as "Girl Scout Day" in Plymouth.
The declaration is to honor the organization's 100th anniversary this year.
PLYMOUTH â€” To say that Plymouthâ€™s new Fire Chief Rod Miller hit the ground running in his second full week as fire chief is an understatement. The Chief was in command at the largest fire in the cityâ€™s history, one lasting more than 24 hours.
Around 4:30 p.m. Saturday, firemen were called to the Liberty Street Depot building at the corner of Liberty and Pennsylvania Streets in Plymouth.
â€śBy the time we got here, weâ€™d seen the billows of smoke coming down the street,â€ť said Miller, who also said the building, which was built in the 1870s and is about 80,000 square feet.
Tritonâ€™s Clay Yeo put up a combined 61 points to set the programâ€™s all-time scoring record at the Trojansâ€™ home Class A regional Saturday. This is the third time Yeo has earned the Athlete of the Week award this season after setting new single-season and game scoring records for the team.
Plymouth sophomore Nicky Davis led the Lady Pilgrims in the all around with a 13th-place overall finish at the Valparaiso Gymnastics Regional Saturday. It was Davisâ€™ second trip to the meet after advancing individually as a freshman.
BOURBON â€” Clay Yeo got the record, but the Trojans fell short of a repeat regional championship.
Yeoâ€™s driving layup from the lane with 1:22 left in regulation secured him Tritonâ€™s all-time scoring record, but when Davis Rao buried a 3 from the wing on the other end, the announcement was drown out by the Canterbury fans.
Raoâ€™s triple sparked an 8-0 run as Kai Foday knocked down a big one-and-one with 28 seconds on the clock to knot the game up at 48-all and force overtime, and the 6-3 forward followed up with an overtime-opening trey of his own to put the Cavaliers up 51-48.
VALPARAISO â€” Plymouth placed sixth against a field loaded with top-ranked talent as the Lady Pilgrims finished out their season at the Valparaiso Gymnastics Regional Friday night.

INDIANAPOLIS â€” Culver Militaryâ€™ Academyâ€™s hockey team added to the Eaglesâ€™ legacy with the schoolâ€™s 22nd Indiana High School Hockey Association Class 5A championship Sunday afternoon.
CMA defeated the Columbus Icemen by a convincing 6-1 score in the Pepsi Coliseum for the repeat state title and its 40th win of the season, a new record for wins by any Culver hockey team.
â€śIt has been a very gratifying year with these players,â€ť said coach Jeff Badalich. â€śThey have worked so hard, and they closed it out with another state championship and 40 wins.â€ť
Fire ripped through the Liberty Street Depot Saturday afternoon around 4:30 p.m. Crews from all over Marshall County responded, battling the blaze at the building at the corner of Liberty and Pennsylvania Streets in Plymouth.

Plymouth sophomore Nicky Davis competes in the floor exercise during a meet earlier this season.
