Rockie Youth Football League to kick off this fall

March 26, 2011

PLYMOUTH – Youth football players in Plymouth will have a new league to hone their skills this fall.
The Rockie Youth Football League will begin play this coming season. The league will be run in conjunction with the Plymouth High School football program and will play on Saturdays in the fall. The idea is to operate the league as a “feeder” program for the team.

March 25, 2011

BOURBON — Much was made of “The Trojan Way” at Triton’s boys basketball pep rally Thursday.
True, you can’t talk about the boys basketball program’s recent success — the Trojans will make their third appearance at state in four years at Saturday’s Class A final at Conseco Fieldhouse — without mentioning in the same breath the culture of hard work and high expectations that sixth-year head coach Jason Groves has put in place.

Eagles gelling on state run

March 22, 2011

CULVER — Culver Military players huddled around their coach Monday at Fleet Gymnasium, going over the lessons of the day.
They concluded their practice, as they always do, with their team motto: “Together we work! Together we work! Together we win!”
It’s that togetherness, that team chemistry, players and coaches say, that is responsible for the Eagles’ impressive run to state this season.

Bremen's Jon Hueni up to the challenge at IU

March 19, 2011

BLOOMINGTON — Former Bremen swimmer Jon Hueni’s experience at Indiana University has proven to be more difficult than his high school exploits, but that was to be expected.
Competing at a Big Ten school, which currently has six teams in the nation’s Top-25 according to, definitely presents its fair share of difficult challenges.
Competition for available roster spots on the No. 14-ranked Hoosiers swimming and diving squad is fierce and does not come without sacrifice, both in and out of the pool.
