Culver survives gridiron war with Whiting

October 30, 2010

CULVER — Less than 7 minutes into the game, it was plain to see this one would be a war.
Whiting and Culver both scored on their first two possessions to put the score at 14-all by the 5:34 mark of the first frame, and even with the Cavaliers leading 42-21 with just over 8 minutes on the game clock, the outcome was still up for grabs.

Bremen stomps Fairfield, reaches sectional final

October 30, 2010

GOSHEN — A good portion of the Bremen football team was in diapers the last time the program won a sectional championship in 1997. Next Friday night, the Lions will have their chance to end the drought.
Braxton Miller (207) and Brock Molebash (130) combined for 337 of Bremen’s 416 rushing yards as Bremen advanced to the Sectional 26 title game with a 42-14 win over Fairfield.
“They came out and executed the game plan flawlessly,” Bremen coach Bob Holmes said. “The coaching staff also did an outstanding job getting them ready like they have all year.”

Andrean ends CMA's season

October 30, 2010

CULVER – Mason Zurek ran for 113 yards, Demetri Blanco added 112 and Rick Johnston scored two touchdowns as Andrean ran over Culver Military 41-0 in a Sectional 17 semifinal Friday at the Academies.
The 59’ers rushed for 463 yards on 44 carries for a 10.5-yard-per-carry average and 19 first downs.
Andrean fumbled five times in the first half, losing three, including one in the end zone, but the Eagles were unable to convert those miscues into points.
Ralph Laux had 46 yards rushing for CMA, which closes out the season at 4-7.

Turnovers cost Triton in sectional loss to South Central

October 30, 2010

BOURBON — Triton's football team darn near matched South Central yard for yard Friday.
Point for point, though, posed a more daunting challenge.
Although South Central accumulated just 35 more total yards than Triton — 375-340 — the Trojans' season-long nemesis struck particularly hard.
Beset by three first-half turnovers in Satellites turf, including Ricky Rigsby's 78-yard interception return for a South Central touchdown, the host Trojans ended their season with a 47-20 loss in Class A Sectional 33 second-round play.

Glenn runs over New Prairie

October 29, 2010

NEW CARLISLE — The Glenn Wing-T rushing attack had three modes of
operation in Friday's Class 3A Sectional 17 semifinal victory.
Over, around and through.
Led by senior Collin Howard and junior Josh Anderson, the Falcons
rumbled for 324 yards in a 34-0 victory over host New Prairie.
The Falcons (9-2) play Andrean, a 41-0 winner over Culver Military
Academy, in next week's sectional championship.
Howard led Glenn with 10 rushes for 168 yards and four touchdown runs.
Anderson rushed 10 times for 103 yards and one touchdown.

Grubbs hopes to bring home world title

October 29, 2010

PLYMOUTH — In a few months one local athlete will be competing for a national title.
Mike Grubbs of Plymouth will head to Mesquite, Nev. — just outside of Las Vegas — in early December to make his bid for a world title as a member of Team USA in the XXXII World Armwrestling Champion-ships.
Grubbs, who won a qualifier in Montana and the right to be one of two athletes on the team in his weight class, is hardly new to the sport.
“I guess I’ve been at it for about 30 years,” he said. “I went to the very first armwrestling competition at the Blueberry Festival and won that, and I’ve s

CGA, Bremen's Jordan prep for state race

October 29, 2010

TERRE HAUTE — Culver Academies head cross country coach Michael Chastain knew his girls would be facing an uphill climb at semistate.
By his calculations, the Lady Eagles would need to run at or below their personal bests in order to advance to state, a goal complicated by the fact that they had just recorded PRs a week before on their home course at regional.

Sectional 2nd helpings: Cavs host Whiting

October 28, 2010

CULVER — After an unprecedented 5-0 start to the season, Culver Community hit the skids in Week 6.
Beset by injuries and other personnel problems, the Cavaliers went on a three-game losing streak and fell out of the Class A rankings in the process.
But Culver’s roster returned to full strength, the Cavs righted the ship in Week 9 with their first regular-season win over Northern State Conference foe LaVille in three years, and opened Sectional 33 play with a 49-7 rout over Lake Central on the road last week.
And they’ve learned some lessons along the way.

October 25, 2010

A week after breaking the Culver Girls Academy Regional record, CGA’s Waverly Neer clocked a 17:53.9, breaking the New Prairie Semistate record to win the semistate race and lead her team to a fifth-place finish, which qualified the Lady Eagles for the state finals for the sixth time in seven years.

Bremen senior Hope Jordan earns state berth

October 25, 2010

FORT WAYNE — The team season might be over for the Bremen girls cross country squad, but the state’s biggest race remains for one Lions senior.
Bremen finished 12th in Saturday’s New Haven cross country semi-state at The Plex, an expected result considering the quality of the 20-team field.
“We knew our chances of going on as a team were slim,” Bremen coach Mick Gardner said. “We came here to have fun with it and enjoy it.”
