Plymouth's Michael Hartman recorded wins in all four of his events â€” the 100, 200, open 400 and 1600 relay â€” to help power Plymouth to its eighth straight sectional championship on the Pilgrims' home track last Thursday.
Culver Girls Academy's Leah Heckaman won her second straight shot put title with a school record throw of 42"2.5" as part of a dual-win performance following another championship in the discus at the Rochester Track Sectional last Tuesday.
CULVER â€” Ryan Rapp is on a roll.
A week after winning the Uebele Invitational at Beechwood, the Marian University recruit and Triton senior claimed top honors at the Northern State Conference meet, beating out teammate and Ball State signee Quentyn Carpenter by a stroke with an even par 71 at Mystic Hills in Culver Saturday.
NorthWood, Plymouth compete at NLC meet
Warsaw beat out NorthWood 308-310 to split top honors in the final Northern Lakes Conference standings, while Plymouth placed seventh with a team score of 335 at the NLC Meet at Maple Crest on Saturday.
BREMEN â€” Thirteen proved to be Tritonâ€™s unlucky number Friday.
As in, the Lady Trojans ran into a buzz saw opposite 13-time sectional champion Plymouth.
PLYMOUTH â€” As usual it was a playoff atmosphere at Bill Nixon Field for a match-up between Plymouth and John Glenn Friday.
The Pilgrims hope that it wasnâ€™t a preview of next weekâ€™s sectional opener as they fell to the rival Falcons, 9-2.
The Pilgrims kept pace answering a pair of unearned third inning Glenn runs with a sac fly from George Stults and an RBI single from Elijah Nixon in the fourth. The floodgates came open in the Glenn fifth with a two-run double from Justin Giorlowski and a mammoth two-run homer from David Jawerski, and that would be enough for the Falcons.
CULVER â€” The Culver Military Eagles scored nine runs in the second inning to put themselves ahead by seven and never looked back Friday, winning 13-3 in five innings at Wilkins Field over the North Judson Bluejays.
The Bluejays got off to a good start, scoring the first two runs of the game on a couple of errors by CMA in the top of the first. They also held the Eagles scoreless in the inning and took a 2-0 lead into the second. Judsonâ€™s Michael Berby got on base with a hit to lead off the second but was promptly picked off at first by CMA pitcher Colin Raver.
ARGOS â€”Â Argos striker Jami Patterson will play for an Indiana Soccer Hall of Famer at Trine University next year.
Patterson, a four-year standout with the Lady Dragons, has committed to play for the NCAA Division III Thunder under head coach Terry Stefankiewicz, a 2004 Indiana Soccer Hall of Fame inductee who coached previously at St. Francis and IPFW. He played at Indiana University for coach Jerry Yeagley.
PLYMOUTH â€” Winning four races at any track meet is pretty special, let alone four sectional races. Michael Hartman won six Thursday.
BREMEN â€” A loss isnâ€™t necessarily always a bad thing. Take Marissa Rossâ€™ and Holly Stogsdillâ€™s loss to Glennâ€™s Kyler Columbia and Allison Pudlo at last Saturdayâ€™s Northern State Conference meet.
The Triton duo seemed to have learned a few lessons in that defeat to their Glenn 1 doubles counterparts, and on Thursday they found the opportunity to apply them.
