PLYMOUTH - The project to extend 7th Road in Marshall County continues.
In current plans 7th Road will become the major interchange for the city of Plymouth with the new U.S. 31 currently under construction.
That plan includes the linking of 7th Road eventually with Pine Road on the city's west side to create a single connection between new U.S. 31 and U.S. 30 just north of Plymouth.
PLYMOUTH - While it may not have been the complete ban that some were hoping for, on Monday the Marshall County Commissioners ruled on a revised ordinance regarding wind farms that had been tabled at a previous meeting.
PLYMOUTH â€” Two days after shaving 18 strokes off their front side score for a new nine hole season-low at Orchard Ridge, Plymouthâ€™s boys golf team pared off another four strokes Monday.
But Mishawaka Marianâ€™s Matt Rozyckâ€™s posted a field-best even-par 36, and the Pilgrimsâ€™ season-best 157 fell a stroke short of the Knights as Plymouth split with Marian and John Glenn in a three-way meet at the Silver Course at Indiana National.
While Rozyck carded a 36 in the second flight for Marian, teammate Michael Makris came in just a stroke behind him at 37.
WARSAW â€” A good weekend turned into a blue Monday for Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims as they took the road to Warsaw to fall to the Tigers (9-7) by a 7-1 final in an NLC battle.
Splitting games in their annual weekend tourney with Ft. Wayne Wayne and Penn had Plymouth feeling good about heading into a long week of games, but Warsaw pitcher Jason Ferguson made that good feeling go away with a masterful performance on the mound for the Tigers.
